There's no place anywhere else in the world that can compare to Voodoo! When friends come in from other areas, a trip to Voodoo is a MUST! The maple bacon bar is amazing, and you'll just be amazed at the crazy combinations on the menu. Bring cash, and be prepared to gorge yourself, it's so worth it!!

So just a few weekends ago a group of my friends were in Portland hanging out & decided to go to the infamous Voodoo Doughnuts. I have wanted to go there for awhile since I've seen & heard so many fabulous things about these delicious & sinful bits of heaven! I didn't care for the service but the doughnuts were amazing! Definitely will go back

First of all, the apple fritter is about the size of my face. And then, while they make all the traditional favorites, they also do crazy things like put Tang and Coa Coa puffs on top their doughnuts (not to mention peanut butter...and bacon!).But you know what? Zaniness aside, Voodoo's doughnuts always taste fresh and I believe they are made with love.

This is the place to go if you are craving sweets. They carry all different types of doughnuts, every kind imaginable. The prices are reasonable. Think about using them for parties, it will get everyone talking.

Voodoo Doughnut is a fun and crazy place to visit when craving doughnuts. Prices are reasonable, and there is plenty of variety. The doughnuts range from the usual maple or chocolate bars to even more creative rice krispie doughnuts. Fun choice!

When I went to Oregon my brother told me about this crazy donut place. He described flavors like bacon, peanut butter, and egg. I thought it sounded like fun, but then I learned it was opened really late and I wasn't able to go. But, seriously, if you're looking for a fun place to go in Portland Oregon, try VooDoo Donuts

Love this place. Usually when traveling home to California I am required to deliver at least 3 dozen random donuts to my family & friends there. While you can find donuts everywhere part of the charm is the unique staff (we are in Portland after-all) and the establishment itself. Its not dirty or gross as some have stated in their reviews. You just require an open mind to appreciate their non corporate appeal.

The only people who go to Voodoo Doughnut are tourists and suckers who have actually bought into the whole schtick of this place. As if they're selling some secret, special pastry that only Portland has. IT'S A DOUGHNUT, PEOPLE - get over yourselves. There is nothing adventurous about getting an average doughnut with a wacky name served in a wacky way. If you actually stand in line for one of these things: you definitely need to get out more.

It's sweet to have family think of you on their out of town trip w/ souvenirs or pics from the trip. But in my case, it's literally sweeter when they come back with donuts from Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon

LOCATION: Yeah...Portland, Oregon close to intersection of W Burnside Street (Hwy 30) & SW 3rd Ave.

SWEET FAMILY LOVE: My sista & cousins went out of town for several days to Oregon & Washington. I don't know if they heard about Voodoo Doughnut from Food Network, Travel Channel, or locals, but glad they did & brought some sweets back for me on their flight home ^_^ FYI, it cost $1 for a personal msg on donut, but all the below were delish!

* Ridiculously XL Glazed Donut Hole
* Voodoo Man Jelly Filled Donut ...funny, when I bit into him & realized filled w/ jelly kinda looked like I just murder him w/ the red ooozing from the inside
* C0ck & Balls Custard Filled Donut ...fyi I did NOT make that name up either

OMG RIGHT THERE, YEEES!: Now reflection of taste, SCRUM-DIDLY-UMPTOUS! Donuts were crazy thick & soft, jelly was sweet & I look for the seeds in my jelly... not much of a custard person but the custard was pretty damn good, & the chocolate icing was nothing like I expected. Not just sweet chocolate icing, but OMG thick...like melted Hostess chocolate or something. I mean I laughed to myself when I bit n2 the Cock & Balls, & of course I bit the head 1st...only to see white custard cream in the middle =o These donuts were a surprise on 1st site, & more of a surprise after 1st bite. Pleasureful all around! Visiting Portland, Oregon in the future...stop in @ Voodoo Doughnut ;-)

I've only been to Voodoo twice, but both were in the past month. The first time I went, I purchased the Tex-Ass doughnut for around $4 and it was larger than my head, I kid you not. It was delicious and took me a while to eat! The second time I got one with peanut butter and rice krispies...DELICIOUS! That one was almost $2, I think.

But...both times I went, I encountered not-so-nice staff members. They act like they are better than you and don't really help you if you have questions because the line is so long, so all they seem to care about really is getting your doughnut quickly without much talking.

Never the less, I will continue going ONLY FOR THE FACT that they have the best doughnuts in Portland!

Pros: Delicious doughnuts, fun to eat

Cons: Rude staff, pricey doughnuts, crowded room with long lines

We waited (in the cold) outside in line for 20 minutes for stale doughnuts that were so overly sweet, to be waited on by a rude person. $17 for 2 dozen doughnuts, and we could not choose the doughnuts ourselves for that price.

The concept is great, and the ideas for doughnuts, excellent! I had seen this several times passing through downtown, heard of it several times while talking to friends and finally saw a little blurb on it on the Food Network. I finally gave in, I'd go check this place out.

For starters if you like crammed dingy rooms with a long lines then you'll probably like this place. They obviously get enough service as they are that popular you would think it would be time to expand the joint.

After waiting for about 15 minutes it was finally my turn. I had seen so many yummy looking doughnuts, there were so many to choose from I didn't know what I wanted to get. I had been looking at the menu to see how much a dozen was. I couldn't find it anywhere. As I opened my mouth to ask how much a dozen were, I started by saying, "Uh," I was a little uncertain so I was interrupted with, "IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, THEN YOUR NOT NEXT IN LINE, IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT THEN YOUR NEXT!!" I was promptly brushed off and the next customer was served. I in fact new want I wanted a dozen doughnuts randomly selected. I first wanted to know how much a dozen was. I wasn't given the opportunity to even ask. I don't like that concept at all I think that lines were created for a reason... and it didn't look like they'd be losing any business soon so what's a few extra seconds to help a guy out?

On top of the rude girl at the counter, the doughnuts are WAY over priced for a mediocre taste. I really was expecting more for the price tag that came with them. The average doughnut ran at about a buck 25 to a buck 75. I would have been much happier at Krispy Creame or even Safeway has better doughnuts. I was also a little disappointed that they didn't have the "bl00d" filled effigy doughnut I was looking forward to!

first off:
--if homeless people freak you out
--if you can't handle waiting a bit
--if you do not possess a somewhat devilish sense of humor
--if you think a dusty velvet painting of issac hayes is not cool

.......this may not be the place for you.

if none of that applies... get ready for deliciousness!!!

forget the dingy-looking inside of the place.... their raised/glazed doughnuts are the BOMB.
every single one of them is damn good. their vanilla frosting and their portland creme doughnut is DIVINE (microwave at home for 15 seconds for best addictive results. you can thank me later).

get a box of voodoo dozen for entertaining, or to sample yourself into a sugar-coma of joy.
(my family doesn't like the cake ones as much, but some people swear by them.)

the ones that are pricey are usually HUGE, just for the record.
HELPFUL HINT: ask the person behind the counter which ones are the freshest. & came out most recently.

this place RULES. don't miss it if you're in town. :D

Captain Crunch on a doughnut!!! Yes please. This is one of those places that you have to go to in Portland. The line is long but moves fast. If you are new to the area it's worth checking out sometimes to just people watch.

I like donuts as much as the next red blooded American, so I was anxious to check this out on my recent trip to Portland. I love the concept of mixing odd combinaitons of tastes together - take the classic Maple Bar and Bacon Donut as an example and what doens't taste better with Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries (funny enough though, I liked the basic culler the best). What was irritating was the girl behind the counter who ignored me as I stood there for at least 5 minutes while she assembled pink boxes. Now, I get the concept: it's not your average chain (ie.: Dunken Donuts or Starbucks) and as a former goth kid, I get the sullen, depressing attitude, and I totally get the fact that it's next to a strip club and not the best part of town. That being said, someone might want to let the help know that they're basically working in a fast food joint so greeting your customer's and taking their order is part of the job. How else do they think money gets put in the metal "tip" box they so proudly display on the counter? Ultimately, good sugar rush and great concept worth the experiance.

I love donuts - used to work for a donut shop in High School, but after I'd seen a few "bad" reviews for Voodoo, so I wasn't sure I wanted to take the drive to check it out. But, hey, it's the 4th of July and everybody was still in bed. Everyone but Voodoo Donuts! It was my first time there, so I wasn't sure where it was or what it looked like. After looking around a bit, I found it. The gal behind the counter was great, very friendly and helpful! I wanted to sample a few so I got the maple bar (very good, light and tasty), a blueberry cake (surprisingly light, not greasy), an apple fritter (wow, I love fritters and this one was NOT greasy, delish and FULL of apple pieces), but the one that I really loved was their "Memphis Maphia" (I think that's what it's called. BTW, the program won't let me put an "f" in the last word - inappropriate word). I love bananas and peanut butter, so when I read the description for the donut and it included drizzled chocolate, I started to salivate!!! Nuvrei used to have a croissant that had banana filling and chocolate drizzled on the top, but they stopped making it. That was a sad day? And, NO, I didn't eat all of them!?!? Just most of them? I will definitely be back and I will bring some back for my friends. Anybody hungry???

Pros: Lots of options, great donuts, not too expensive

Cons: Not easy to find, not much parking and not the place to hang out and enjoy your haul!

Rude service, overpriced product, lousy quality. Like so many others who have written reviews here, I also heard of Voodoo on the TV, it looked like a fun place to visit and I went with great anticipation of a real taste experience. And an experience I did have, just not the one I had anticipated.

The place was crowded, of course being that it was a Saturday night this did not surprise me, that is until I had the experience under my belt. Are we consumers really such big suckers for gimmicks? Extremely rude service, we ordered 7 donuts, most of them as large as a dinner plate, but when I requested a box to carry the donuts out, I was rudely informed that "boxes are only provided if you order a dozen or more donuts". What's with that? I spent twenty dollars on seven donuts but I had to beg for a box?

I might have overlooked all that had the product equaled the hype, NO!, this was junk, the donuts which were not undercooked were dry.

If what you are looking for is entertainment by way of slumming it, standing in line for a long time and watching people who are dressed as tacky as their donuts are, while enduring the constant stream of pan handlers pestering you at the door, then by all means go ahead, but if it is a high quality donut experience you crave, pass this circus up.

I can't figure out why people are so offended by Voodoo Donuts. YES, folks, it's not a sparkly-clean Starbucks. YES, some of the employees have dreads. YES, homeless/questionable people wander in here (have you seen the neighborhood? Noticed it's next to a strip club?). If you expect to be smiled at and coddled and cooed at when you order your donut, you're going to be disappointed. If you like your donuts with an edge and have a buck and change burning a hole in your pocket, you can get a damn fine donut here. I'm not even a huge fan of donuts, and these are good.

Other than a couple of P&%^$ shaped donuts this place is just like Winchell's. The only difference that I saw was more homeless guys talking to themselves here. By the way, I would only pay 5.75 for a donut if it had a 5 dollar bill baked inside.

having read reviews of the place, T and I decided to see for ourselves one weekend, and so visited. Fair enough, the place isn't sparkling clean, but if you're looking for dunkin donuts, you came to the wrong place. Far from being rude and/or surly, the guy behind the counter was working hard and quickly to fill customer's orders. We decided to try the triple chocolate, which was delivered on a clean square of wax paper. With an air of friendly gratitude for our business. We're no donut afficionados, we don't frequent toppot nor ooh and aah over crispy cremes - but this donut tasted just fine. I'm guessing that an independent place like Voodoo may be spotty in service and product from time to time, but my suggestion is check it out if you're interested, and see what you find. We like supporting independant businesses, and will probably stop in again next time in Portland.

No, Voodoo Donut isn?t in the nicest area. No, it?s not bright and shiny and sterile. No, the people behind the counter aren?t bright and shiny and sterile, either. If you?re looking for the best basic donut in Portland, you won?t find it there.

Then again, if you?re looking for the best basic donut, you shouldn?t be in Voodoo Donuts. Voodoo is all about the specialty donut. Where else can I find a chocolate cake donut, covered in chocolate frosting, topped with Coco Puffs? Where else can I find a donut shaped like a little man, complete with pretzel stake through the heart? Where else can I find a donut filled with mango, shaped like a blunt, or dusted with grape Kool-Aid?

Even on the rare occasions when I?ve gone for the basics, I?ve never had a BAD donut. (The apple fritters, in particular, ARE the best I?ve had in Portland.) But who wants basic when you can try something called a Dirty Snowball?

Even on the rare occasions when I?ve gone for the basics, I?ve never had a BAD donut. (The apple fritters, in particular, ARE the best I?ve had in Portland.) But who wants basic when you can try something called a Dirty Snowball?

Pros: Donuts

Cons: Neighborhood

I was excited to try this funky Portland institution. Unfortunately, it was grimy and offputting at the outset. The counter was filthy and the rest of the place was worse. The service was lackluster. We took the donuts home to eat, and they were awful. My cake donut was undercooked and almost raw on the inside, and the icing was gritty and had no chocolate flavor. My cruller also had terrible flavor and mealy texture. Just awful. My husband had paid, so I didn't learn until later that it cost $9.25 for five small donuts! Give me a break! Other donut shops like Sesame Donuts have MUCH MUCH better product at MUCH MUCH lower price. Avoid this place at all costs.

This is one of Portland's best spots! I love it! Especially after coming out of a show at Berbatti's a donut always sounds so good. They have funny ones too like peanut butter and jelly and maple bar with bacon and the ever popular blazer blunt. The vegan donuts are really good though.. and I'm not even a vegan, but my friends are, so that's how I started eating them. Definitely check it out. Open all night I think?

What can I say; Portland always has a way with intriguing me and did so once again when I heard about Voodoo. A friend of mine had just come in from Spain and mentioned she had read about this place on the airplane. So, I asked a couple of local friends about it and they excitedly told me all the details. I wanted to go, so we decided to stop by prior to heading out to the Dundee wine country. What can I say, wine and donuts? why not? Anyhow, I entered the little shop and immediately smiled: This was a uniquely Portland destination. Everything from autographed pictures of Portland micro-celebs like PoisonWaters, down to the purely alternative vibe was definitively Stumptown. The woman working the register was extremely nice and helpful, fun to speak with; however, I really wish she had on some sleeves, even short ones. There is something about someone handling my food with hairy pits sticking out everywhere (male or female) that make me wonder about the sanitation of the place. Well, that and the fact she placed the donuts directly on the dirty counter as she rang us up. But, that isn?t as important as the donuts themselves. They were not that great! I had the old fashioned ? dry and stale. My friend had the famous Voodoo, ?bloodjelly? and all, and she mentioned it was ?too fluffy, like cake? and that the frosting and jelly tasted ?cheap.? I am not sure where the line is between cake and donut, and won?t even try a stab at where cake-donut fits in the equation, but the point was made. She didn?t like it. Anyhow, I would suggest going to Voodoo for another quirky Portland experience, but don?t expect to be wowed when you take a bite. A suggestion for Voodoo ? go check out TopPot in Seattle, they do it right.

We came to visit Portland from Southern California and read about Voodoo Donuts. We were really excited that it was close to our hotel and went there on a Saturday early evening. I wish I had read the review on CitySearch before we went. The service definitely wasn't what I expect from a retailer but I was OK with that since I went for the donuts. However, the donuts were a complete disappointment. Maybe it is because we were there in the evening, but they obviously don't change their oil enough because the donuts tasted of old oil. We bought a chocolate covered old fashioned, chocolate cake with chocoloate, a crueller, apple fritter, and a regular cake with sprinkles. All but the apple fritter was passable. Maybe they had been made a day ago, it was somewhat stale along with the old oil taste. The chocolate coating was OK but the cake batters were not cakey but a bit rubbery. We saw the voodoo shaped donut and before we had visited, we thought it was a novel idea, but after seeing what it was, it was completely laughable. If you really like donuts or like good desserts, don't bother. Donuts anywhere else would be better in my opinion. I'm not a huge Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme fan, but they are 10x better than these. My guess is that the ambiance of this place as the the "not your chain donut shop" probably gives it the edge... but the product has to live up to its promise, and it doesn't. It was definitely a waste of our tastebuds for us. (This is also my first review on CitySearch because I was shocked at how this place got any good reviews.)

Pros: non-retail chain

Cons: Poor tasting donuts

From the moment I walked into this hyped-up place, I felt unwelcome. Maybe if I had bright orange dreadlocks and a dirty hoodie with patches sewn on it like the other person in there, the employees wouldn't have given me such nasty looks. But I doubt it. The girl behind the counter was actually glaring at me the whole time. She wasn't just sulking. She was actually trying to make eye contact and giving me dirty looks, as if I had no right to be in there. Wow! It was like I acidentally walked into her bedroom or something! But maybe it wasn't me. She was wearing black lipstick and looked like she had never smiled in her life, so maybe it is too much to ask to expect semi-respectful service from someone like that. What kind of glutton for punishment would want to go into a hostile, dirty little shop that looks like a hippie squat and get dirty looks while eating unhealthy food?? I mean, if they sold wheatgrass or omega-3 bread or something, and I had cancer, maybe I could deal with the snottiness. But doughnuts that look like penises? You've got to SMILE if you want me to buy something like that! These people take themselves pretty seriously for selling penis-doughnuts. But then again, I guess it's not about the doughnuts. This place isn't even a real store, or they would hire people that actually want to sell stuff instead of wanting anyone who doesn't fit their "look" to leave as soon as possible. This is just a stupid "scene" for stoned high schoolers to come show off and college kids come glare at each other and reflect on how "indie" they are. If you're into that, then great. Apparently enough people are, that it stays in business. But if you have a life, then avoid this place. They are only interested in you if you will be their admiring audience. Personally I am not impressed by bad attitudes, smelly clothes and two-inch-thick earrings. Gross. Not to mention the place is filthy and has offensive pictures/porn on the walls.

Pros: It is so small, the door is easy to find when you want to leave after two seconds.

Cons: the people who work there, the people who hang out there, and the food.

This place is the absolute worst. We visited Voodoo in January after reading yet another review about how great and cool it was. First of all, the place looks filthy. It's so cluttered and the entire place feels like it is covered in a layer of dirt. The staff was completely rude, but we figured that maybe the amazing donuts would make us overlook the crappy treatment. WRONG! The donuts are boring and taste about as good as the ones they sell at Safeway. Well, this past week my friend visited me from out of town and she insisted that we go to Voodoo because she had heard so much about it. Guess what? The service is just as bad. The two women behind the counter looked at us like we weren't cool enough to eat their crappy "too cool" donuts. They are openly rude, short and just plain nasty. I mean...hello? You are selling donuts, not working in a morgue. How about a smile or a "have a nice day" once in a while? And again, the place seems dirty, and the donuts taste ordinary. What is the big deal about this place???

This place was highly recommended to me through Suicide Girls, and I think the place was great. For a 2am doughnut fix this is exactly the type of place I would like to have here in Seattle. First it was packed with people who had to spill out onto the street, the doughnuts were fresh and tasted a hell of a lot better than I expected. The Bacon Maple bar was genius, and every other doughnut we tried was solid stuff.

First of all, they didnt even have the Maple Bacon Bar which was the reason I drove downtown to try Voodoo Doughnut. If you are drunk and dont care about good service, this is the place for you. If you dont want some EMO kid crying in your doughnuts and you expect half way decent service and maybe a hello, this is not for you. I heard so much about this place before I moved to Portland, even Anthony Bourdain said this place was killer. I like a good doughnut as much as the next guy, but it doesnt seem like these guys care about customers being treated well. I dont expect that much, expecially in a little dirty doughnut shop, but if you are going to claim to have the best doughnuts in the world at least say it with a little respect for your customers. Oh yea, the doughnuts are OK.

Voodoo is a Portland staple, back in the day they were notorious for their Nyquil and Jager doughnuts, but since then I believe the big-old city of PDX said that alcohol and Nyquil in your food is a no-no. Still pretty good, if you're looking to be a trendy downtown kid it's a must see. The doughnuts are named great things (hippies a$s = maplebar w/granola, satanic doughnut = chocolate doughnut w/orange pentagram) but are actually normal doughnuts. Although I do love the Nesquik doughnuts (doughnut w/top dipped in assorted nesquik flavours). Nothing too special, but worth seeing. VERY SMALL. I passed it my first two attempts, it's right near a bar, small sign hanging up 10ish feet above entrance. It's the size of a walk-in closet, on Fridays or certain days they have people/person climb up a ladder and play music, or do art I guess, in the little loft (I mean little, like 3'x4'). Pretty much, they'll shovel you through because there's not space to accomodate more than 10 people, which would be crammed. I believe they're closed on Mondays. Worth trying, but maybe not going repeatidly.

I happened upon Voodoo Donut the other day on a jog through the city. I had the Portland Creme and it was delicious. The donuts are very fresh. The chocolate is good quality. I went back a few days later because the cravings would not go away. I don't intend to make this a weekly habit but it will be hard. These are the BEST donuts.

Don't go there for service. My two visits were both with someone very interested in seeing me get my donut quickly and go. I guess they'd rather the place be empty so they can do something better with their time. The joint it also very tiny.

So, don't go for atmosphere or service, get the yummy donut and leave quickly to enjoy it.

Our company wanted to order specialized donuts to celebrate an anniversary. The first time we talked to VooDoo they said, yes, yes, we can do that and even suggested some great ideas. The next time we talked to them they said they couldn't do what we had initially wanted or even what they had suggested, so we adjusted our order. They called back and cancelled the order we had with them even after all of the changes because it would mean they would have to spend 1 extra hour making the amount of donuts we requested. Who would turn down business?!? They might have stellar donuts, but they definitely are not ready and/or willing to sell them.

Or even if you're just in the mood for deep fried, cereal topped, sugar coated sugar, voodoo is awesome. Glorious, even. I recommend the Dirty Old Ba$tard and the dirty snoball. Also, the vegan ones are good too, if you like bananna.

it was great to find this place open late as we walked around downtown. ordered the buttermilk bar, old fashioned, McMinnville Creme and Mango Tango. 3 out of 4 were good, but avoid the Mango Tango. Filling was horrid. Topping was icing dipped in Tang. Yummy. Sad when I got to the center. We will go back and order more.
