“If the thought of vegan doughnuts turning in a glass case makes you salivate, you must check out Voodoo Doughnuts. The fun environment and line out the door told me Voodoo was a winner before I even took my first bite. The vegan jelly doughnut rocked! Plus, their cute slogan is: ‘Good things come in pink boxes.'”

“Thrive serves both raw and cooked dishes — all jam-packed with loads of flavor. I couldn’t choose which beverage to get so I started with a basil/cilantro/apple green juice AND a chocolate milkshake. Both were insanely good! The miso soup came in a mug, and it was the best I’ve ever tried — chock-full of veggies and shiitake mushrooms!”

“All-vegan donut shop equals heaven!!! They are generous with their free samples, but that didn’t prevent me from ordering upwards of 7 donuts. The chocolate-glazed was my favorite. Very moist and just the right level of sweetness.”
