Second best donut shop in the country. This place is creative. The line gets long. But it is worth the wait.

Wow! Multiple friends had mentioned that a stop at Voodoo donuts was a "must Do' in Portland. If the line around the building was any indication of how good these donuts were, we would've come sooner! I am not a huge donut person, but my husband is a fanatic and was blown away. Don't miss the Portland Creme and the vegan options!

The unique variety of donuts are an absolute staple to Portlanders. The first time I came to Voodoo, I went to the original store and waited nearly an hour in a seemingly never-ending line. The pink building has faster service, but regardless the donuts are sweet, quirky, and delicious. The decor is nevertheless the same quirkiness, but I love the pure aura and taste of Portland manifested at Voodoo.
The donuts aren't super fresh, but they're still delicious unique treats. For something "classic", get the maple bacon bar or voodoo bar; for unique, get anything topped with cereal, candy, or powder. Or try one of everything!

I heard about Voodoo donuts and a few friends, although they had other recommendations for donuts, just told me to try it anyways since it was native to Portland. Since I knew Voodoo was known for their crazy and unique flavor combinations, I decided to try their Captain Crunch. It was basically a donut with thick sugar frosting topped with Captain Crunch and Fruity Pebbles cereal. It was too sweet for my taste and the cereal was not as crunchy as a thought it would be.

Voodoo Doughnuts is an institution in Portland and people often write about the long lines, however, I went on a saturday morning and it was completely empty. We chose to just to a pre-assortment box of doughnuts, but you have the option of selecting whichever ones you want. I thought the doughnuts were pretty good, but what really sets them apart is the novelty of them more so than anything.

i think some locals hate on this place saying it's not really good, blah blah. well, we had to try it anyway and we got a box of really interesting looking and sounding donuts and they were all seriously so good. especially the jelly filled voodoo donut.

When in Portland...
Vegan donuts = Win
We got lucky and visited when there was really no line. We had the namesake Voodoo doll donut and the chocolate/Oreo/PB donut. They were both delicious, decadent and fun.
The creative decorations and flavor combinations make this place worth visiting again!
It's a small shop and I can imagine it must be kind of crazy when the lines are long, but the employees were really friendly and pleasant. The only downsides are the kind of shady area with people begging and having to pay for parking.Recommended for:Vegetarian
