Doughnut digest

Many people expressed sadness after Doughbot—downtown Sacramento’s artisanal, vegan-friendly doughnut spot—announced its closing via Facebook a few weeks ago. Fear not: There are still plenty of places to pick up some sweet fried dough in town, as long as you know where to look and have access to reliable transportation. First, the vegans: Whole Foods Market (4315 Arden Way) sells vegan doughnuts from Santa Clara-based wholesaler The Posh Bakery. For people who want inventive pastries with copious toppings, a good option is Baker’s Donuts in south Sacramento (5880 Florin Road). In addition to a large assortment of doughnuts, Baker’s makes inventive versions of the nationally popular croissant-doughnut hybrid (called “Cronutz” here). Sunshine Donuts (2428 Marconi Avenue)—which had its grand opening on June 1—also makes its own version of the Cronut, plus kolacky. But, don’t forget, Doughbot (2226 10th Street) is still open at least until the first week of August, according to its Facebook post.
