This Popular All-Vegan Doughnut Shop Is Expanding To DTLA • Donut Friend

For those of you who somehow managed to miss the Donut Friend obsession-train… you’re in for a treat! 🍩

Donuts Done Differently is the sweet spot’s motto and it sure is accurate. After being in business for 5 years, the Highland Park sensation has plans to expand to a Downtown Los Angeles location right on Broadway. Lines are usually out the door so the new spot, which is directly across from the Spring Street Arcade, seems like the perfect place to call home.

The menu might be entirely egg and dairy free, but it sure doesn’t taste like it! Take a look at this donut called Jets to Basil.

Donut Friend founder Mark Trombino is a “record producer guy” (which makes sense of all the musically themed treats) who just so happened to stumble into the pastry business. When he first got the idea for his shop, he would just “dick around” in his kitchen and travel around the country to figure out what he liked and what he didn’t like. And by the looks of it, he came up with a hit recipe!

Trombino says the DTLA expansion is still a couple of months out and doesn’t have an opening timeline, but we can be hopeful for an opening day by the end of the year!

Location: 543 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013. See it on Google maps.
