NYC Vegan Doughnut Shop Opens

Yesterday, all-vegan doughnut shop Dun-Well Doughnuts opened for business in Brooklyn.

After months of anticipation, Dun-Well Doughnuts opened the doors of its new storefront and began serving cruelty-free treats in East Williamsburg yesterday. Co-owners Daniel Dunbar and Christopher Hollowell—whose names are pieced together for their business’ moniker—declared their project “the premiere vegan doughnut shop on planet Earth” when they launched their Indiegogo fundraiser in September. Hollowell tells Gothamist that the shop will feature more than 50 different flavors, including Earl Grey Tea, Mexican Chocolate, Lavender Lemon, and Faux Gras—a tongue-in-cheek delicacy that made headlines earlier this fall when Dun-Well veganized another Brooklyn restaurant's controversial foie-gras doughnut.
