good doughnuts, cool decorations, iffy on the details. - Edit

I love VooDoo doughnuts, and I visit them in Portland all the time. They have a wide variety of vegan and nonvegan doughnuts to satisfy any kind of craving.
Recommend the doughnuts 100%.
A few things miffed me about this Austin location, though.
First, no air conditioning. In a Texas summer, this sucked a LOT. Everyone was sweating, and when I asked why they didn't have AC, the cashier responded with a vague "the AC drips behind the counter so we keep it off." Made it impossible to sit and enjoy any of the food.
Second, they only take cash. There is a conveniently placed ATM right next to the register, but of course has crazy ATM fees. A $40 card reader to attach to a phone isn't a big expense for a modern convenience. The people ahead of me, behind me, and myself all had to step out of line to pull out cash.
Third, they were out of ice. They had a sign taped to the machine that said "we run out sometimes, be cool about it." It was sort of hard to be cool when you can't cool down with a cold beverage or an air conditioned shop. I was burning up. Other than that, atmosphere was great and staff was nice enough. Doughnuts are always amazing.

Pros: atmosphere, food, variety of options

Cons: no air conditioning, no ice, cash only

Always Open. - Edit

A whole shelf of choices of vegan cake and raised doughnuts. And the cake was light and dreamy not dense and mediocre like most vegan doughnuts. The frostings are a little over the top on the raised but the doughnuts themselves aren't too sweet so it worked. And, ignore the closed indicator here. They're NEVER closed.

Pros: 24/7 raised and cake vegan doughnuts

Great for vegans - Edit

Vegan donuts are tastier than the regular dairy laden donuts. Nightmare to park nearby! Long lines but worth it - very friendly.

Def worth checking out, not the best though. - Edit

Solid doughnut if in need of a doughnut fix. Go earlier in the day as I went once in the evening and they were out of some flavors.
Not the best I've ever had but still good. Try the voodoo doll, oreo cookie, and maple-bavarian cream. The PB&J is worth skipping. The cake donuts are ok but I would stick to the regular yeast doughnuts.

Pros: Yeast doughnuts, Open 24/7, Yummy

Cons: Cash only, Expensive, Can run out of flavors

Not as good as the Portland location - Edit

I was excited to hear that Voodoo opened a location in Austin as the one in Portland is amazing. This places disappoints, however as the staff is not helpful or courteous. I've been 3 times and each time the staff was terrible. They do have vegan donuts and the place looks cool, but it's nothing like the original. Plus, there are always lots of people begging for money outside. If you are looking for delicious vegan donuts, try Wheatsville Coop or even Whole Foods. Both are better.

Pros: Delicious donuts, Open 24/7, Vibe and Decor

Cons: Customers bus the tables- so they aren't as tidy, Cash Only

Amazing! - Edit

I've been here several times and absolutely love it (although be prepared to wait in line on the weekends). A box of a dozen vegan doughnuts is around $18...and they usually throw a few extra your way. Super friendly staff and cute hang spot...definitely must visit.

Delicious! - Edit

Vegan doughnuts were amazing! Tasted like regular doughnuts! Just make sure to tell them you want the vegan doughnuts so they don't mix it up.

CASH ONLY, up to 14 vegan choices! - Edit

If you need a sugar hit this is the place to go. At around $1.80 per doughnut it's inexpensive. It's also suitably hip & weird. Personal favorite doughnut is the maple Longhorn (stuffed with a custard) - so sweet it's BONKERS!

Pros: 14 vegan doughnuts!, weird!, can order ahead

Cons: expect a long line , cash only , popular vegan items sell out early (go before lunc

Good donuts but not always available - Edit

Quite a few vegan donuts but at least 3 were out that I wanted, and at that point, I gave up. Donuts a bit sweeter than I'd like but the yeast donut base was excellent.

Cash only

Decent vegan selection, fun atmosphere - Edit

CASH ONLY--plan ahead (they do have an ATM inside). Same Voodoo as in Portland and Denver. They were initially 24/7, but then they cut back on their day time hours and aren't open on Mondays and Tuesdays. Bummer.

Many vegan selections, but it's hit and miss if they're going to be out of what you want. I LOVE the cake donuts, especially the toasted coconut. The chocolate cake donut is good too, and I'm not even really into chocolate donuts. The cock and balls is super delish--I don't know what magic goes into that cream filling, but it's worth it, whatever it is. SO GOOD. The maple cream filled is baller, and the blunt is good, a biiiit churro-ish. A teeny bit on the dry side, though.

Service can be hit and miss, and I've actually left empty handed with only 2 other customers in the whole place, as the line can move pretty slow.

Pros: Quite a few vegan options, Fun quirky atmosphere, Literally 5 feet from my office

Cons: Line can take forever, Often out of the vegan cake donuts, Cash only
