Pepple's Vegan Donuts @ Philz Coffee

ssfire Aug 12, 2009 04:37 PM

Philz Coffee in Palo Alto sells Pepple's vegan donuts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (If you want to snag one, get there early; Philz only gets about 16 donuts, and only one of each flavor, and they sell out quickly.)

I did a taste test of the cruller, chocolate, and blueberry donuts (See photos). They are all cakey-style donuts, and better than average. Good flavor, and a bit lighter and fluffier than typical cakey donuts.

    Weird to have a cruller (French cruller-type, as your photo shows) that could be described as cakey, though.

      I had the cruller shape at Local 123 last week. Yep, I feel the same way. This cake-style donut was quite heavy and oil-soaked.
