If you’ve ever had a doughnut from Portland-based Voodoo Doughnut, you probably already have a story about how crazy (and delicious) they are.
Voodoo Doughnut, currently owned and operated by Chris Schultz, has been serving us some of the most intricately thought out doughnuts since their opening in 2003. Back then, Portland natives Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon wanted to combine their love for quality hospitality with their daring do-it-yourself brand of show business.
Within a month of opening, the shop received its first piece of national press.
While diners can still enjoy classic doughnuts like maple bars and raised glazes, most people come here to try out something they can’t get anywhere else.
Some of the specialties include the “Oh Captain, My Captain” doughnut that adds vanilla frosting and Cap’n Crunch to the raised glaze. You can also get a “Voodoo Doll” filled with raspberry jelly and topped with chocolate frosting and a pretzel stake. If you’re feeling really brave and adventurous, try out the “Ring of Fire,” a devil’s food cake with cinnamon sugar, cayenne pepper, and a dried red chiller pepper.
The upcoming location at 8500 Piña Boulevard will be the twelfth for the company and the third in Denver. Reporting from Denver Eater states it will be open at Concourse B sometime in 2022.
