On Sunday morning Meaghan had been planning to meet up with some friends who where visiting from out of town. They were to meet at Voodoo Doughnut in downtown. Meaghan had never been to Voodoo and she was looking forward to it. Unfortunately plans changed and her friends ended up having to leave town earlier than expected. After much arm-twisting (read: none at all) I was persuaded to join her and so instead of sharing doughnuts with friends we embarked upon a voyage of our own.
Ever popular, the store is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and as far as I’m aware there is always a line. Even on a Sunday morning at 10am we were standing outside in the rain with a good crowd of people who were all keen to get their doughnut fix. We returned with two of their signature doughnuts, a voodoo doll and bacon maple bar, as well as a voodoo dozen, which is thirteen doughnuts picked out by the Voodoo staff. They have some of the most creative doughnuts ever conceived and we’ve been enjoying them all week.
If you’ve never tried a bacon maple bar then you’re missing out. Next time you find yourself in old town Portland you really owe it to your taste buds to stop by Voodoo Doughnut and try one.
