Restaurant Review: Blue Star Donuts, Portland, Oregon....

Blue Star Donuts is a great little place we found by accident. I was in our hotel room reading reviews of Voodoo Donuts because we were planning to go there. So many people gave it bad reviews for service, attitude, and cost, which was discouraging. However many of them recommended Blue Star Donuts as an alternative option for vegan donuts in Portland. Of course I wanted to try both places, and I am so glad we did.

Blue Star is a Gem. The donuts are soft on the inside, crisp on the outside. They're creative, delicious, sweet but not too sweet, and just perfect in every way. The two times we went they only had 3 vegan flavors, but that was enough for us. They had a classic powdered sugar donut, one with blueberry glaze, and another that was Olive Oil Orange. All three were fantastic but I think the blueberry one was my fave. Personally I did enjoy Blue Star more then Voodoo, and the service was better and friendlier.

My one recommendation is that if you go, and you should, you go early in the morning because by afternoon you'll definitely need to wait in line.
