In September, we wrote about a possible vegan doughnut shop opening up in Brooklyn. Now, after months of raising funds through an Indiegogo campaign, Dun-Well Doughnuts has arrived.

The campaign raised $15,000 to open up the vegan bakery. According to VegNews, Christopher Hollowell and Daniel Dunbar opened the storefront yesterday in East Williamsburg, and call it the “premiere vegan doughnut shop on planet Earth.” The two told The Gothamist, “Vegans and those with egg and dairy dietary restrictions often sacrifice flavor and texture to satisfy their sweet cravings, but Dun-well Doughnuts allows them to enjoy fried doughy delights along with their non-vegan friends.”

One look at their menu of amazing vegan doughnut creations, and you’ll see what they mean. They have peanut butter and jelly, raspberry cheesecake, espresso mocha, french toast – just to name a few! They’ve even made a vegan version of a foie gras donut from a Brooklyn restaurant that sparked controversy and a petition. The brand new store will feature a changing menu of flavors, for around $2.5o each.

Congrats, Dun-Well Doughnuts!
