Dun-Well Doughnuts In East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York…Go Now!!!

OMG! It’s been three hours since I left the Brooklyn premises of the vegan hotspot “Dun-Well Doughnuts” and my heart is still beating from the excitement of my experience. Today was my first visit to this hipster doughnut shop, located at 222 Montrose Avenue in the East Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, and I can emphatically state that taking my first bite out of Dun-Well’s traditional glazed doughnut “hot from the oven” was, undoubtedly, the highlight and greatest joy of my entire vegan life! 

I don’t know how I could possibly describe the sweetness of the mouthwatering glaze or the manner in which the super soft and fluffy doughnut melted in my mouth. After I licked my fingers clean, I contemplated the amount of time it would probably take me to sell my Long Island home and find a place to live in East Williamsburg, New York. To top it off, I enjoyed the delectable doughnut with the first cup of coffee I have had in over three years. All I can say is that I think I may have died and gone to heaven!

The wonderful coffee from the Brooklyn Roasting Company, as well as the amazing selection of over 2oo exciting flavors of doughnuts makes Dun-Well Doughnuts a “must-go” place for vegans and non-vegans alike. You could relax and sit at the counter or one of the tables and enjoy a “doughnut sundae” with vegan ice cream, if you dare; or you could choose to indulge in a doughnut “kabob” while working on your computer since the space provides free Wi-Fi.

As you can see from the photos, Dun-Well’s charming decor is reminiscent of an old fashioned doughnut shop and provides a great atmosphere in which to indulge in your sweet treats. After our sinful indulgence, my husband and I left the premises with a box of the following doughnuts: 1 chocolate with peanuts, 1 toasted coconut, 2 peanut butter & jellies, 1 vanilla with sprinkles, 1 chocolate with sprinkles and one doughnut kabob. They may not qualify as vegan health food, but they are undoubtedly healthy for your soul! I’m really glad that I showed enough restraint not to devour the entire box of doughnuts on our way home, although I did manage to squeeze in a peanut butter and jelly doughnut for which there are no words to describe. Just no words!

As you may know from my prior post entitled Don’t Miss Out On This Hot Vegan Triple Play, Christopher Hollowell (the “Well” in Dun-Well) called up his college buddy Dan Dunbar (the “Dun” in Dun-Well) after having watched a Simpson’s anniversary episode that featured Homer’s favorite doughnuts rather prominently. Since Christopher was unable to find a vegan doughnut shop in New York City to satisfy his craving, Christopher and Dan agreed to make it their quest to create an amazing vegan doughnut and open New York City’s first all-vegan doughnut shop. Thank goodness for the Simpsons!
