This meal is hosted.
Pepple’s Donut Farm has been serving vegan, organic donuts since 2007 in Oakland. They recently opened a shop in Los Angeles (Silver Lake) simply called “Donut Farm.”
Leslie Durso was invited for a tasting and I tagged along as her plus one.
ALL OF THE DONUTS. Here are the ingredients, in case you wanna know.
Unlike Fonuts, they are not gluten-free, and they are not baked. Fried! Like, you know, real doughnuts.
We got Blueberry, which was Leslie’s favorite…
…Mexican Hot Chocolate (which was mine)…
…Bananas Foster, and Candy Cap, which is a type of mushroom.
Yes, we ate a mushroom donut. Because we are bonkers like that. You can sorta tell – okay, TBH I couldn’t at all, it just tasted like maple with an indistinguishable aftertaste, but Leslie could because she’s got that crazy chef palate.
There’s also a vegan coffee bar with hot chocolate and fair-trade, organic McLaughlin Coffee.
I liked them a lot – they’re cake-y and a manageable size.
