Love ’em or hate ’em, donuts are a Vancouver staple and we’ve got plenty of options to show for it. From Lucky’s, Lee’s, and Cartems, to the new Mello location in Kerrisdale – good donuts pretty much grow on trees here. So, when we heard about a new Underground Donut Tour of the city, we knew we had to share the news.
Get ready for an afternoon of tasting some of the best, most niche dessert flavours, folks!
The two-hour guided walking tour will take you on a curated eating experience to 4 iconic donut shops in Vancouver. First up is the 24-hour powerhouse bakery, Breka. Visitors will then make their way through West End and downtown, making a few stops before ending their journey at Cartems in Gastown.
“Vancouver has always been on our list of cities we wanted to open. It’s truly one of the most beautiful cities in North America and when we saw the incredible selection and styles of donuts available, everything just clicked. We’re so excited to open our first tour in Canada,” said Jeff Woelker, founder of the Underground Donut Tour, in a media release.
