Nice dougnuts, not so cosy atmosphere - Edit

Great selection of (big!) doughnuts.

Although there was a wall with plants in the back, the atmosphere was kind of cold and not so cosy (wooden stools).

Fluffy, huge and delicious - Edit

This doughnut shop is so nice and spacious and has a wide range of vegan doughnuts. The doughnuts are enormous!! I tried the special baileys cheescake one and it was insanely fluffy. The dough could have been a tiny bit less sweet for me personally, but I thoroughly enjoyed the doughnut anyway and will go back for sure to try some more! Their coffee is good too.

I keep going back! - Edit

Living so close is dangerous, I can’t get enough of these doughnuts and so many flavours to try! They are just the right amount of fluffiness while still very chewable. Huge sizes, be warned! ;)

Pros: many flavours, size

Good coffee and doughnuts - Edit

Roomy seating area, which wasn’t packed at 10:00 on a cold Saturday. There were 16 flavours of doughnut, including a St. Patrick’s Day special, Guinness ganache. I would happily have any of the flavours on offer. Good coffee.

Pros: all vegan, variety of doughnut flavours

Cons: rather expensive

was expecting more... - Edit

When I arrived they had only two variety of doughnuts left: the chai and strawberry basil. Was very disappointed about how poorly they manage their stock. We had both the chai and strawberry basil. I found them both very sugary and doughy. The dough was too compressed and dense, not fluffy enough.

Pros: Unique concept in London

Cons: If you do only one thing, you better be sure that

Decent - Edit


Good stuff. Not as good as Brammibals, but what is. The place itself is in desperate need of character, but hopefully that will come in time.

Pros: Mushroom toastie

Cons: lots of white walls

average doughnuts - Edit

The flavour combinations available are interesting enough, and the actual cafe is pleasantly decorated, but the doughnuts themselves were quite dry. There are other places to get better doughnuts in London.

Pros: lots of different flavours

Cons: dry doughnuts

So so good - coffee and donuts - Edit

Set in a back lot near the high street of Hackney is a brand new donut shop. When I first walked in, they had a whole array of choices and was already busy 20mins after opening for the day.
We tried the lattes, along with the cookie dough donut & the white chocolate cream filled - and they were out of this world!
Would definitely recommend. Only a short walk from Temple of Hackney (Temple of Seitan) - can hit both in one go.

Pros: amazing selection, delicious coffee, baristas/donut bakers are so nice and friendly

Doughlicious - Edit

In March last year I was in Berlin and I visited Brammibals vegan donut shop, it instantly became my joint-first-place-with-Black-Cat-Hackney favourite vegan place in the whole wide world, and I wished that London had its own Brammibals...

Well, now we have the Dough Society's first cafe, and whilst it doesn't have the range of food that Brammibals has on often - and, to be fair, it's only been open a couple of weeks - it could well give Brammibals a run for their money!

It's a nice space, very open, airy and wide, and they do a darn fine oat latte. You're not here for that though, you're here for the donuts, and we had a box of six on our first visit, and we came again a week or so later for another three. I'm planning on making this a regular stop on the way to the cinema!

Our firm favourite so far is the Boston Creme, but there's a huge variety of tasty and inventive flavours, and I expect there will be plenty of specials and one-offs and experiments as the years go by!

I also fully intend on popping in to try their toasties in the not-too-distant future, but, as it stands, this is a delightful spot to grab a tasty treat, to sit and enjoy a good coffee, or to pick up a few goodies on the way somewhere else. There's also a loyalty card, a stamp per visit, as if any incentive were required to keep going back!

It's early days for this little cafe, but if this is how it has started I can't wait to see where it goes!

Pros: Yummy donuts, Nice, open cafe, Good coffee

Delicious! - Edit

I've only got the chance to try three of their donuts so far, the Homer, Peanut Butter and Pretzels and Brownie, and they were all so delicious.
I will definitely be going back for more!

Great coffee and wide selection of vegan doughnuts - Edit

Dough Society's new shop in Hackney is a clean minimalist space serving a wide variety of doughnut flavours and great tasting coffee, with the option of soya or oat milk.

Pros: Great coffee, Wide choice of doughnuts

Cons: Would be nice to have a sugar-free option!
