a meaty bakery
Posted on 06 / 11 / 2010
Holy Donuts started by selling vegan donuts to outlets (HF stores) before they got their shop. However, upon opening their shop, it was disheartening, even disgusting, to see meat all over this place, and very limited vegan options. The momentum the community supported this place with was for vegan food and ideals.
We were so excited when it opened but could not have been more appalled and disgusted at the condition. I rarely mention sanitation in reviews, but I wonder if their food handlers all have cards, if the health inspectors have come bc when I was there I saw too many things disregarded, sorry to say. The person behind the counter was eating fast food burgers and didn't wash her hands until we told her to do so, surprisingly, the manager was there and did not suggest the same. Gross and disgusting, the service there was nonchalant and ignorant of what vegan means.
It is a crying shame this place serves so much meat! They built their rep by being vegan donuts, yet that is far from what they are about. They are seemingly about whatever sells, and vegan donuts being a niche they did that. Now that Voodoo is in town less so, and I suppose they feel a niche is served by killing animals like every other place in that area. Ask folks on the street, they would tell you it is a vegan joint, but far far away from Truth that is. Pig covered donuts, chicken and cow slain animal entrees, yet we could not get anything other than donuts as vegans is the very sad and pathetic truth.
Bakeries should only be listed, imo, if they are all vegan or at least veg. I was beyond grossed out by the place, and don't even buy their donuts at retail outlets any longer. Slippery slope regarding listing a place like this. A vegan donut makes not one veg-friendly said the dead piggie.
This page is hijacked by Facebook spammers. They are asking their FB followers to spam this board. That is so contrary to what Happycow is about. You want an honest Happycow review, not just their friends who just joined today, avoid this place and their donuts at HF stores.
A lot of meat, dirty staff, no vegan options
