Cute spot for donuts!

All of the products are vegan, drinks made with cashew milk crafted in house and donuts cooked in coconut oil! We tried a sampler plate and were stoked with them!

Pros: Tasty Donuts, Vegan options, Great coffee

Best donuts in my life!

These taro based donuts are incredible! Such robust flavor with a sweetness that isn’t too overpowering. Try their delicious coffee drinks too! I got the cacao latte which was everything you’d want from an island my vacationy healthy vegan experience!

Pro Tip: If you download their app ahead of time you have access to the secret menu!

Pros: Vegan

Go here. Get the cold brew!

This place is awesome! We tried every donut flavor! They are all winners. Make sure you ask about the off menu options! The staff is crazy’s friendly and be sure to get their nitro cold brew coffee. Easily in my top 10 favorite coffees I’ve ever had. It almost tasted like a Guinness!

Amazingly delicious

We got 2 of each— yes, they’re that good. You’ll want to try every flavor. Served hot, fresh, made to order by great people who really care about their food and business. Everything is awesome— their house made mylks, the coffee they’ve carefully chosen to go with the donuts, and their gorgeous boxes. Do not miss this place! Some contain honey but they’re clearly marked. Otherwise, everything is vegan.

Pros: All vegan except for well-marked honey , Hot, fresh, delicious , Run by folks who care

Don't miss these donuts!

Donuts are just delicious. A family member who was hesitant about vegan and taro-based donuts ended up loving them too.

Beware that some days they close at 1 pm and some at 4 pm, so make sure to check the schedule if you're in the mood for an afternoon donut.

Pros: Delicious donuts!

Cons: closs 1 pm or 4 pm different days

Vegan Taro Donuts

Made fresh when you order- almost completely vegan except occasionally they have one with honey. You can order the sample box and get 4- they let me swap out the one with honey!

Pros: Staff knowledgeable about what isn’t vegan

These doughnuts are absolutely incredible. Don’t miss out on this little gem of a spot! The staff is so kind and the only ingredient to avoid is the bee pollen. But it’s a topping so it’s easy to request to leave off.

Pros: Delicious, Great flavors , Awesome staff

The donuts came out hot to the touch! Made to order - very tasty - not too sweet - nice balance. You can grab a fork and cut up some samples for the group.

Grab a tasty box for $15 and you won’t be disappointed!

Pros: Good music - nice vibe , Fun for the whole family

Fresh donuts

Almost entirely vegan except for honey I believe. They make their own nut milks and the donuts are made fresh when you order which is nice. I love fried donuts and fair warning these are baked. We got some iced drinks which were not very sweet. I like them a bit sweeter so it wasn’t my favourite but my mom ended up getting several boxes of donuts. She loved them.

Pros: Nice and chill staff, Vegan except for honey, Fresh and homemade

Cons: Not clearly labeled as vegan

Super Delicious

Usually 4 choices on a rotating menu of different styles to choose from. I believe at the time 1 style d had honey in it otherwise it’s all vegan. Small expensive and delicious. These gems are worth your time and I am a repeat customer while on the Island. The location is at a fantastic food court with many Vegan food options.

Pros: Lots of Vegan Choices

I'm from Seattle where we have wonderful Mighty-o vegan donuts, but these were 5 times better. I also loved how excited the staff seemed about their products! Might come back to Kauai just for these donuts ❤️

Pros: Rotating menu, In-house nut milk, Passionate staff

Unreal vegan donuts - the best I’ve ever had!

HOLEY moly, this place is something special! I ordered the “reincarnated” donut and man, it did not disappoint! The donuts are made fresh, so they are handed to you warm out of the fryer. The donut had an indescribable crispy exterior with a cakey interior - truly scrumptious! I love that this place uses coconut oil, and the staff are so friendly!! I will absolutely return (probably more than once) during my stay on Kauai!

Pros: All vegan, DELICIOUS!!, Friendly staff

Delicious donuts!!!

I got trapped eating down the street at The Dolphin with my family (my non-vegan sister's choosing) and ran out to find this place .17mi away on foot. It's in a food truck park with other trucks that had some tasty looking vegan options, next to a taco place that had a yummy-sounding vegan burrito on their menu. Do yourself a favor and get at least one of each flavor!! My picky non-vegan Dad and open-minded non-vegan Mom loved the chocolate, coconut maple, lemon, and kumquat flavors. Their holy chai is pretty good too.

Pros: All vegan save for the honey glazed option.

Cons: None!! Get your buns over there fast as you can!!!

Amazingly delicious donuts

So happy to find this place. I ordered the “Reincarnated” - maple smoked coconut, Hawaiian sea salt. Husband had the “Szechuan” hot dough with salted pineapple and Szechuan pepper. So delicious that I had to go back and have a second one. Quite small but so light and delicate and fluffy. They came warm, freshly cooked. Not your average donut. Do not miss this place. Plenty of other food trucks nearby plus a store for soft drinks or beer. Nice atmosphere. Short walk from Hanalei Beach.

Pros: Amazingly light and fluffy donuts, Reasonably priced by Kauai standards, Friendly staff

Cons: I felt greedy going back to order a second but...

Super tasty donuts

Cute little food truck run by a brother and sister duo from Oregon. The donuts are really tasty but small. We ordered the four pack and devoured all four. They are made of taro flour so they are more dense than a regular flour donut. Hours have changed so make sure you check, they are open six days a week from 7am to 1pm.

Pros: All vegan

Cons: A bit pricey and small
