Offers a couple vegan flavors
Posted on 01 / 11 / 2012
I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Fonuts review.
Since reading about there being vegan donuts offered here I just could not resist making the trip! The drive was a bit of a hassle because W. 3rd Street (and this part of LA) gets quite congested on Sundays. Parking is available behind the shop, you have to let the valet guy know that you're getting something at Fonuts.
The shop is little and casual. There is a raised bench table along one side of the wall with several high stools for seating. A glass case displays each day's gourmet donut flavors.
On the day I came here, 2 vegan donut flavors out of the approximately 10+ or so different kinds were offered: a vegan lemon glaze ($3.25 each) and a banana bread donut ($3.00 each).
The vegan lemon glaze had a tangy and sugary taste; the donut dough was moist and sweet - tastes a bit similar to a conventional sugary donut and a bit too sweet for my personal preference. The banana bread one actually tasted more like cake than donut; it was moist and nicely sweetened nicely (not too sweet).
You can enjoy your donut(s) with hot LaMill coffee or tea. Not a bad treat!
fresh made, gourmet donuts, good flavors
