Donuts in the North Oakland Donut Hole
We have often reported on the baja 94609/94608/94703 zip codes as up and coming areas with good bones, great housing stock, easy access to transportation and proximity to a lot of great restaurants.
Now the area we refer to as the donut hole has gotten a lot better.
The donut farm opened up about six months ago at 6037 San Pablo Avenue in a small storefront in the Golden Gate Neighborhood.
The donut farm serves up yummy vegan donuts. For those of you who are thinking vegan donuts--no way--yes way. They really are yummy. You need to find your way to the donut farm. It is hard to miss so keep your eye out. Candy cap mushrooms that taste like maple syrup, orange, and chocolate donuts...yummy.
The Golden Gate Neighborhood is seeing a renaissance of sorts. The ever changing Emeryville is pushing its economic tentacles east and the stock of great housing in the neighborhood along with interesting, yet, affordable commercial spaces along San Pablo Avenue are attracting new uses and new residents. The donut farm is a great addition to a great neighborhood!
