Voodoo Doughnut Is Opening Its First-Ever East Coast Location

If the original Portland spot was a chapel, this new shop is pretty much a pastry cathedral

A West Coast gem is finally making its way over to the other side of the country (sorry, it's not In-N-Out just yet). According to Delish, famed Portland shop Voodoo Doughnut is set to open its first East Coast location at Universal CityWalk in Orlando, Florida.

If the original Voodoo Doughnut was a lowly chapel, think of this new spot as a cathedral, where 50 flavors will be available on a spinning carousel, including the maple-glazed and bacon-topped bars that first put the bakery on the map. Meanwhile, Voodoo's eponymous flavor—a chocolate-glazed doughnut doll with a pretzel rod stabbed through its squishy heart—will also be on offer, in both an edible version and a 12-foot-tall replica. And just like the original Portland bakery, you can even exchange wedding vows here—if you're the type of person who believes fried pastries are an outright religion.

"It's going to be a donut palace," Tres Shannon, the shop's cofounder, tells Delish. "We used to joke that we dreamed of opening a donut palace, and we'd say things like, 'Wouldn't it be cool to have a water slide in it?' Now there's one right nearby!"

The store is currently in its soft-opening stages and will officially open later this spring.
