Amazing donuts. Wish they were bigger!

Apple fritters were light and fluffy. The vanilla bean glazed ones were a lighter version of a krispie Kreme.

Local Favourite!

Would give 5 stars if I could!
I had the baked salted caramel and baked classic donuts. Very impressed with these gluten free donuts, very light and moist. Both were also the right amount of sweetness. Definitely will return!

Pros: Gluten free options, Most donuts are vegan

I love the earl grey donuts

The earl grey donuts are light and perfect. The other flavours I’ve had were also pretty good. Donuts that aren’t overly sweet or heavy.

Pros: Earl grey donuts , Not too sweet or heavy

Cons: Wish there were more vegan options, Expensive

Good variety of vegan donuts

They had five options of baked donuts and five options of traditional donuts. I only tried the traditional donut and it was very good.

Was here once and had a donut for take out
Service is nice
You can sit inside as well (they have lots of spots), but it’s more „diner-style“. The donut was quite sweet and soggy, but I suppose that’s what most people love about it - I am just not used to very sweet stuff

Pros: Vegan options , Open until late , Birthday offers

Cons: Sweet

Unique Flavors

All but two flavors are vegan and they have a mix of cake and yeast doughnuts. Really enjoyed the Early Gray and London Fog.

Best vegan donuts!!

About half of their donuts are vegan (would give 5 stars if all vegan), and they are DELICIOUS. Best vegan donuts I've had so far. I fill up every tinge I'm in Vancouver.

Smoked Maple Walnut Donut.

^thats all I have to say.

But forreal it was so good. They have a bunch of different options, we also got the Earl Grey donut which was tasty. (It was a cake donut though- I prefer yeast donuts, which the smoked maple was!)

They only serve almond milk for nondairy which was a slight bummer, since almond milk lattes don’t taste well to me. Otherwise, come get your delicious donut fix here!

Best vegan doughnuts I've ever had!

(This review can be for any of their locations)

Their vegan doughnuts are out of this world! I highly suggest trying one of their monthly specials, but as for their regular stock, the apple fritters and earl grey doughnuts are my favourite. I don't think you can make a bad choice here, though! Their strawberry mint tea is also tasty and compliments their doughnuts well :)

Excellent vegan donuts

They have vanilla, chocolate, apple fritter, and seasonal flavours of vegan donuts. Proper puffy deep fried type vegan donuts, not cake donuts. They are so good. They taste how I remember regular donuts tasting. They have almond milk but no soy milk to go with you tea or coffee. My favourite is the vanilla icing donut. They also have the cake type gluten free donuts, some of which are vegan, but I don't really like those ones.

I'm a donut hound

My donuty senses go off any time I am within 5 blocks of this place. I'm not sure why, but I can be asleep in the back of the car and wake up abruptly to let everyone know there are donuts a foot. I love this place. I forgot how good yeast donuts can be and this place has crazy flavours. I love their apple fritters and their vanilla bean glazed are the best things I've ever put in my face. Yes please!

Pros: Great selection, Simple is nice but weird flavours are fun, Parking is interesting

Cons: Not all vegan :(

Delicious vegan donuts. Try the smoked walnut maple. Hello! Really good. Coffee was pretty meh but I'm from Seattle and sort of snobbish.

Wonderful donuts, wonderful staff

I love cartems, they have a lot of vegan donuts as well as gluten free options! The staff there are always super friendly and willing to strike up a conversation with you. My favourite has got to be the Earl Grey donut, but they always have seasonal donuts in vegan options that are super yummy too. I just had a wonderful gluten free vegan pumpkin spice donut that was great! A lot of wonderful vegan beverages as well, like a fresh cold almond milk and some sodas!

Pros: wonderful vegan options, lovely wood atmosphere, friendly staff
