Restaurant Review: Zombee Donuts in Fullerton, CA
As I was in the area to attend the sixth annual Abracadaver Halloween Market (read about that HERE!), I knew I HAD to finally make a stop at Zombee Donuts in Fullerton, California. Though this bake shop isn't all vegan, it does offer up a different vegan doughnut option every week. How could I pass on a zombie-themed sweet shop with vegan doughnuts? I just can't believe I've waited this long to visit Zombee Donuts!
I stopped in on a Saturday morning around 10 AM and was immediately delighted by their spooky-chic decor. The store had a lovely gothic feel combined with fun zombie decor! Think the doughnut shop of a gothic princess who also happens to be a fierce zombie hunter! I immediately felt at home, as the vibe was very inviting, plus the service was quick and friendly.
After fawning over the decor, my next move was to drool all over their doughnut display. They had doughnuts shaped like coffins, monsters, eyeballs, and more, as well as having one delectable vegan option, a cinnamon crumb doughnut. I do wish some of their spookier doughnuts were vegan, but I was quite pleased with the autumn-spice flavor and cakey consistency of the vegan option. I also got a black iced coffee, which was perfect for washing down the sticky sweetness of the doughnut. Their coffee was delicious and did the trick to keep me cool and alert (in case of zombie attack!).
I cannot recommend Zombee Donuts enough! It is perfect for horror fans that want a sweet treat, but it is also family-friendly. While I was there a lot of families rolled through, and not one of their precious snowflakes was disturbed by the decor. If anything, the kids seemed stoked on the zombie decorations and creepy doughnuts! It's also a great place to just sit and enjoy a doughnut and coffee as they have cushy chairs as well as tables all around their spacious interior.
Getting there is a breeze, and they have plenty of parking in their own lot behind the building as well as ample neighborhood parking. Zombee Donuts is family-owned, so stop in and support this fantastic (and delicious) independent business! They are doing something unique and fun, and I can't wait to go back to try their other vegan flavors.
