Get ready for Crème Brûlée Donuts, Cinnamon Rolls, and more.
Calling all donut lovers! Orlando, Florida is now home to its first 100% vegan brick-and-mortar donut shop (and it’s Black-owned!). With viral flavors, including the craveable Crème Brûlée and Hibiscus Orange Mimosa donuts, as well as a wide range of cinnamon roll offerings, it’s safe to say that Donut’ste will become a mainstay in the Orlando vegan community for years to come!
Donut’ste Opens Pink Brick-and-Mortar
Cult classic pop-up Donut’ste Donuts opened its doors outside downtown Lake Mary, Florida on August 6. Long gone now are the days of standing hours in the Florida heat for your chance to pick up one of the coveted Donut’ste Donuts. Instead, cool off in their new Barbie-esque pink-painted cottage with vibrant pink neon lights and a massive pastel flower wall stretching across the room. Groove to hot tunes while carefully selecting your droolworthy donuts. Lemon Hibiscus, Key Lime Pie, Smore’s, Biscoff Cookie Butter, Pina Colada, Stuffed Banana Pudding, and Red Velvet Crème Brûlée are just a few among a gigantic list of rotating flavors offered at Donut’ste Donuts! Not to mention a rotation of delicious CinnaRolls spanning from Birthday Cake, Red Velvet, and Cookie Butter flavors. Being vegan has never tasted so good!
The Secret Behind “The World’s Best Donuts”
These are not your typical vegan donuts. Going for up to $10 each, it may surprise you that Donut’ste Donuts has maintained a *fanatic* local following, nearly always selling out far before their pop-up events officially wrap up (to the detriment of long lines of hopeful customers). Ask anyone who has tried a Donut’ste Donut and they will tell you, without hesitation, that these are the world’s best donuts—full stop—and well worth the price.
Brooklyn native and Donut’ste owner Chef Shalom creates his delicious donuts using clean, plant-based ingredients with an emphasis on celebrating fresh herbs and spices. Growing up in what is considered a food desert, Chef Shalom’s Brooklyn upbringing rarely put him in contact with the herbs and spices he’d read about when flipping through his mom’s cookbooks. As often as he was able, Chef Shalom hopped on the subway to Manhattan to find ingredients such as fresh mint. On these trips, he also fell in love with other food desert rarities such as Vietnamese cinnamon and Meyer lemons. His passion for flavor landed him a position as private chef, catering to New Yorkers with stages and TV shows.
Donut’ste Concurrently Launches Food Truck
Concurrently with Donut’ste Donuts’ brick-and-mortar launch, they have also announced the unveiling of a new food truck concept that will go beyond sweets. The kitchen-on-wheels will allow Donut’ste to serve the overwhelming demand for Donut’ste products while protecting its vital staff from Florida’s ever-extreme weather.
