Donut Panic
Donut & bagel shop with vegan days
Donut · Grantville · $
Grantville's answer to the vegan donut, this independently owned sweets shop serves up plant-based pastries on the weekend (with plans to extend open hours). Never one to shun donut's savory counterpart, the eatery also serves up bagels smeared with vegan spreads like hummus, baba ghanoush and cashew cream cheese.

TL;DR Flavorless donuts with awful texture served in a VERY dirty store by occasionally rude/unsanitary staff (with the exception of the owner/manager Linda) Just go to Donut Bar or Whole foods, don't settle for this place. PROS: -Nicely decorated donuts -Owner puts effort into creating new/interesting flavors -Vegan donuts -Owner invests time into hosting community events -Cupcakes are good CONS: - Dirty dining area - Dirty Couch and storage cooler in dining area - Dirty Drink making area - Which makes me think the kitchen is dirty as well - Bland, lightly sweetened donuts (this would be a pro if they weren't bland) - Vegan donuts have the texture of unsweetened vegan bread - Limited selection, and often-times sold out -Staff needs lessons cross contamination (I've witnessed food handling while money handling by staff on 4 separate occasions that I've been there) -$2 for a mediocre vegan donut I want to like this place. The owner/manager is a great person who is very likable and has good intentions with her store. First and foremost it is a donut shop and their donuts (though vegan) are awful. Going through highly rated review for this place gave me high hopes that it would be phenomenal, but I was GROSSLY disappointed by what I've eaten there every single time. It is incredibly disappointing too, given the level of effort put forth in coming up with new and interesting flavors that of the 4 times I've been here, the donuts have been far below average at best. Combined with the uncleanliness of the store and rudeness of the staff, I would not recommend this store to anyone I know, vegan or not.

I had been hearing about this donut shop and how good the donuts are. I decided to stop in the way to work to get some for the girls at works. All the reviews about this place are right. The donuts are very good here

Yummy Vegan donuts! They often stay open til 5-6, and soooo grateful for their late hours filling our donut cravings. Really love these donuts, especially their filled ones! Mmmmm! Let’s continue to support this great business!
