Although this Kensington bakery makes both traditional and vegan donuts in their shop, the ones made with coconut milk are somehow just as good - or even better - than the regular ones. The flavors change weekly, but range from classics like Boston creme to ones that sound like they were invented by a really hungry 9-year-old, like banana graham cracker and black and white cookie cake. They’re also owned by the same people as ReAnimator, so you know they have great coffee, too.
