Donuts Dun-Well In Brooklyn

Visited 02/04/2012

Yesterday I had the pleasure of heading to Dun-well Doughnuts in Bushwick, Brooklyn. This entirely vegan doughnut shop is the first of its kind here in NYC.


The storefront, opened a couple months ago, represents a big step for Dan Dunbar and Christopher Hollowell. The business, as Christopher put it, has “come a long way since last year when we were making them in my apartment.”



The shop is a bit of a step back in time with its wood paneling and antique accents. I wasn’t expecting it to be quite so large; customers spread out amongst the tables like at any local Starbucks. The old-timey vibe is so true, the laptops seemed anachronistic.

It took some contemplating before I settled on a Rocky Road, the daily special made complete with Sweet & Sara mini marshmallows; a Maple Walnut; and a mini Snickerdoodle donuts. (I totally cashed in my weekly sweets chips…and it was worth.)








As I sat thinking about the hour drive, I wished there was a location closer to me.  An ambivalent wish, though. To a certain degree, I am glad these donuts aren’t widely available…cause I’d get very fat. Conversely, I wish more people could enjoy vegan goodies like these.

Two tips: 1) come with green because they are cash only; 2) save some green and own that you’re going to splurge…just get the half dozen for $13…or the dozen and share the vegan goodness.

  1. Wow, that looks good. I probably would have gone with the rocky road too! What else did they have in the way of really chocolatey?

    Since you we’re in New York, was that a long island I’ve tea? lol jk

    1. Um, actually I don’t remember if they had other chocolate ones; probably a regular Chocolate covered. I know they had Blueberry, Jelly Filled, Traditional Glazed, Vanilla with Sprinkles, Maple Walnut, mini Snickerdoodle, Java, the daily special, and like 3 other varieties. My sister had a Donut Sundae; hers was a Vanilla Sprinkle doughnut with a scoop of Cookies n’ Cream by Lula’s Sweet Apothecary. In the glass was actually Sarsaparilla Soda; she wasn’t the biggest fan of it because she didn’t realize it would taste like licorice, which I think I would have loved.
