Beware: This place uses lard in their donuts. - Edit

They fry the vegan and the lard donuts in the same fryer. It’s up to you to decide if this is acceptable or not. I don’t think their donuts are they great, so it’s an easy decision for me.

Could be better and they know it, but don't seem to be trying - Edit

They sell 3 kinds of vegan donuts: Sugar, Cinnamon Sugar, Powdered, they use the same base for all 3, just different toppings. The sugar they use for the Sugar and Cinnamon sugar is kind of big and grainy, but the donut is really, I prefer the Powder Sugar one for this reason.
They usually only have the Sugar variety, and run out early in the day.
About a year ago they had strawberry jam, and lemon "curd" filled donuts at this location, and they were AMAZING, but they always ran out.

Pros: Good fried donut base

Cons: Shared Fryer, EXTREMELY limited selection, Run out fast and don't make more

raised sugar donuts - Edit

They make one variety of vegan raised sugar donuts. Sometimes they have a second powder sugar option as well. There are a bunch of locations which is convenient. There's some controversy as the veg oil used for frying the vegan options is shared with the non-vegan donuts which all contain lard, so if that squicks you out, be forewarned.

Pros: raised donuts, multiple locations

Cons: shared fryer oil

good - Edit

Friendly bright staff & dining. Got here around 10am on Friday, still plenty of the vegan donut left. It was like a type of sugared donut... A bit overly sweet for me (& $2 ). My friend said the coffee wasn't good.

Pros: vegan donuts!, friendly staff, ample seating

Cons: only 1 vegan donut, bad coffee?

Amazing donuts - Edit

Stan's has fantastic donuts but not a lot of vegan options. They tend to have 1-5 different varieties, depending on the day/time. The line is always long but moves fast, and their donut milkshakes are fantastic - but no vegan option there.

Pros: Delicious, Quick service, Great selection of non-vegan donuts

Cons: Not a lot of vegan options, Pricey

Get there early before they run out! - Edit

Out of a store that carries dozens of donut varieties, Stan's unfortunately only has one vegan option and it tends to sell out early. You would think that the demand for vegan donuts would encourage either more vegan options or a few extra batches of the only vegan donut they carry, but it doesn't seem to be their priority. It is a sugar donut and it is perfect in every way! Be sure to get there before 1 PM or you will be shit out of luck.

They also sell cups on Intelligensia coffee, but when I had it it was burnt so you may want to skip it.

Pros: friendly staff, quick service

Cons: sell out early, only one vegan option, burnt coffee
