Voodoo Doughnut makes some of the yummiest creations in town. It's just as good (if not better) than the original location in the Pacific Northwest. This is located in a prime touristy location, so prices are much higher. Expect to pay a minimum of $1.75 per doughnut.
We got three doughnuts ($6.52 total check) and all were fresh and super soft. I was pleasantly surprised. The original glazed is still my favorite, but my hubby raved about the maple glazed. He did not think the blueberry cake doughnut was very good, however, but who really loves cake doughnuts? Yuck!
All of the Portland classics are available here, including their famous Bacon Maple Bar, the Voodoo Doll, and the Grape Ape. They have candy-colored and cereal-topped doughnuts for the kids, and a huge selection of vegan doughnuts for your pain in the butt friend. If you're looking for something exotic, the employees were friendly and willing to help answer our questions.
The ordering process is confusing because there are all these doughnuts but not any easy to read descriptions. This means everyone has questions, so the line backs up and gets super long.
There's limited seating inside, and they also serve coffee. Note that this location won't accept gift cards, which is a major bummer.
The iconic doughnut shop from Portland now has a location at Universal's City Walk. They offer a vegan menu and a plethora of fun doughnuts. Be sure to take a picture in their giant doughnut chair!
Fantastic donut flavours! Loved the Voodoo Doll, which even has jam in the middle and a little stake!
Voodoo Doughnuts puts a fun twist to donuts both in shape and in flavors. Come here also for the flavorful Stumptown coffee to wash them down.
Overrated donuts, they aren't that great to be honest and the lines are long
Well as you can imagine the lines get long here, so be prepared to wait to get those famous Portland goodies. It's a great location and they have a coffin you can even get married in.
AN AUSTIN MUST! Perfect different yet sweet & perfect donuts. Whether for a late night snack or a dessert for the road.
I came to Austin after visiting Portland where I skipped Voodoo Doughnuts and went to Blue Star donuts instead (yum!!!) - now I regret not going to both! I was not the biggest fan of the filled doughnuts here, but the Mexican Hot Chocolate flavor won me over. I didn't actually pick that donut - the staff member who rung me up suggested it! Definitely trust them when they suggest something. Also, I was expecting much more expensive prices, but it was definitely fairly priced!
My first Voodoo. Delayed flight getting in at 0200 due to weather. Slept in then walked around the corner to get some coffee and donuts. Decor was great. Donuts were, well, they're donuts. Not fond of this trend of putting cereal and other treats on frosted donuts. But the yeast donuts were great, light with just the right amount of grease.
There was a (Hipster) Mommies Group having coffee with all their kids dancing on the stage and throughout the tables. Odd juxtaposition of young innocence and "black magic" vibe.
Getting my bearings and buzzed from the 'Ol Dirty Bastard doughnut (chocolate frosted with oreo and peanut butter drizzle) to the tune of Garbage and Courtney Love, while a futuristic cowgirl looks on. The cash-onlyness reminds me of NYC's E. Village. Located on a strip of E. 6th in Austin pulsating with live music venues.
OMG! This place is so cool, lol. Very unique place. The doughnuts are cute and very affordable. THEY ONLY ACCEPT CASH!
I've heard so many good things about Voodoo Doughnuts, and wasn't aware that they even had one in Texas until my friend told me she had bought a dozen back for us to try.
Oh my goodness, I'm not a big doughnut fan, but these were amazing! AND I had them a day old. She got the Voodoo dozen, which came in an assortment of doughnuts - Captain Crunch, cinnamon, peanut butter, maple, glazed, chocolate, cream filled, M&M's, blueberry, coconut, sprinkles, marshmallow. They were all good, but my favorites had to be the sprinkles, blueberry, cinnamon, maple, and some Simpson looking doughnut.
Apparently if you want to replace one of the doughnuts from their Voodoo dozen, you have to pay a fee. Overall, a really solid doughnut place. Lines are long! But worth the wait.
Follow the pink boxes....& bring cash. VooDoo Doughnuts in Austin is an amazing experience and totally worth the moderate wait you may encounter. As you get close to Sixth street you will begin to see people carrying stacks of bright pink boxes. It is a cash only establishment (but if you forget there is an onsite ATM). I also recommend checking out the website ahead of time or while you wait for the unusual varieties of doughnuts they offer. Plan to buy a dozen. Trying to choose just one is torture. If you are a java lover, get the Stumptown Coffee nitro brew, it is a wonderful compliment to the sweet treats. Doughnuts range in price from .95 and up.
After just leaving Portland and eating my first Voodoo doughnut, I came home to find one being built in Austin. I was there during the soft opening, and a few times since. They have very creative and often sweet donuts. My favorites are the Blazer Blunt, the Grape Lavender one, and the Marshall Mathers. This location is right in the heart of dirty 6th, so expect a line.
Had the voodoo doll donut. Really tasty.
Black magic pastries. They say the magic is in the hole.... And, as a rule I would agree that holes are magical. However, other than the awesome concept and great fun this place was inspired by, it's just sort of middle of the road. The donuts were a little on the stale side. We tried the voodoo doll and the old dirty bastard - both yeast doughnuts. The texture of the donut was good, but the flavors were uninspired and the doughnuts were a bit stale.
This location is so much more relaxed than the downtown spot. Prices are also fairly reasonable, probably because they only take cash
It's exactly what you'd except from Voodoo, a crazy aesthetic and a whole lot of sugary doughnuts. This isn't a fancy artisan doughnut shop but that's the best part, it's real people getting big pink boxes full of goodies
The line wasn't very long when we arrived here, at about 9:30 at night, so we only needed to wait about 5-7 minutes to order. They have their doughnuts listed on a menu on the wall, or you can look at the spinning doughnuts in the display case to buy by sight as well. The doughnuts were fresh and they had pretty much all of their doughnuts available so there was no "I'll have x," only to be told they were out of it.
The doughnuts here are legendary. They are so good that there seems to be a line any time of the day or night.
The west Voodoo has a line a block long, but there's no line at the East side. Ok, there could be a line, but it'll be much shorter. The neighborhood might seem a little random, but you can't miss the all-pink building. Like, flamingo pink. It's equally as bright as its donuts. Yes, they're good, but the appeal is more of the crazy toppings and names than the sugary carbs themselves (for me, anyway). That said, the Triple Chocolate Penetration is as chocolatey good as it sounds. Oh, and so are the phallic-shaped pastries.
I'd be honest, this place is just a novelty for me. I visit it as frequent as visiting touristy spots like Crater Lake or the Rose Garden. That being said, I come here only to bring newbies. This location is so much better and you don't feel claustrophobic. The only downside is Stumptown is not a block away.
The last time I visited here was back in Summer of 2013. What I remembered from my visit was they have Voodoo trucks parked outside and a couple of video games inside the bakery. As for the donuts themselves, they are as Weird as Portland goes. Kind of fun, kind of strange names and flavors. Quite honestly, the maple bacon for me was just alright. But always a great place to take people from out of town to visit.
I can't say this is the best donut I have ever had, but it is the greatest sugar rush ever.
Good donuts, but not the best in town. More touristy than anything. Bring out of towners here.
Everybody should experience Voodoo at least once in their lives. More than once, ideally. The maple/bacon bar is stupid. Like good stupid.
Voodoo is overrated in my opinion. They do have really special donuts and some with erotic names, but the lines get so ridiculous here that I don't think it's really worth the wait. Their donuts are cheap and coffee is good. The store is definitely worth a visit though, but just once is enough.
I've always wanted to try these donuts and I can finally say I did! They only take cash but they have all kinds of donuts from captain crunch to butterfingers. They only take cash so make sure you have some on you!
If you are not in the mood to wait in the usually long line downtown the north east location is a great alternative for the same delicious doughnuts!
