Voodoo Doughnut, in the pink on East Colfax.
Doughnuts are on a roll in metro Denver. Another Dunkin' Donuts location opened at 4:30 a.m. this morning at 8775 Washington Street in Thornton, reviving some of the fever that hit town when two DD stores debuted on the same day in August. But the temperature -- as well as the doughnuts -- will really rise tomorrow, when Voodoo Doughnut opens at 1510 East Colfax Avenue.

This is the first foray of the Portland, Oregon-based outfit outside of the Pacific Northwest, and Denverites are ready to welcome Voodoo Doughnut with open arms -- and mouths.

According to Voodoo's Facebook page, the spot has passed all inspections, and will open at 5 p.m. tomorrow -- with a grand opening celebration in mid-January. But in the meantime, though: Doughnuts!

The Dunkin' Donuts on Broadway sucks. Service is horrible, slow, and I'm not sure what the craze is about. DD is nothing special.

America is not fat because of donuts. Other countries are thin because their food sucks.

I can't believe people are excited about DD. New Yorkers would love to lose about 200 of theirs.

I hope these donuts give you an orgasim with all the press you're giving them. It's just a donut and hopefully it'll have flavour unlike a lot of food here in Denver.

Went to DD on Broadway after the bars and the lobby is locked, only the drive-thru is open and they only sell "mixed dozens." Screw that, we went to Winchell's 20 blocks south and the lobby was open and the donuts were fresh and hot.


It's cold, Dumbass Donuts: I don't want to sit in my car and eat your day-olds. What is Dunkin' scared of that Winchell's and 7-11 aren't afraid of?

I'll gladly make the trip. I never heard of you before today.

If you don't want any website criticism, stop reading now.


If you have any specials, make it BIG on your menu: coffee and two donuts for $XX. Site could really use some colorful pictures of your product to help make it more appetizing, the B/W pictures look like something from a donut version of the Blair Witch Project. A picture of your storefront and a mention of the cross streets would also help. Put your phone and address on every page, that's the first reason people visit websites.

Obviously YOU CARE, you visited the article and you posted a comment. That's two votes in favor of more articles like this... or are you ignorant of how this internet thing works?

It kind of amazes me that donut shops have steered clear of the most populous street in Denver. VD should have a drive up stand of pre-mixed dozens for $20 every morning at rush hour.
