Double Down on the Best Vegan Doughnuts in Melbourne!

Melburnians are emerging from one of the strictest COVID-19 lockdowns in the world. As a result of the city’s hard work, Melbourne has now achieved 14 straight days of zero new COVID-19 cases. Melbourne is rejoicing with zero cases each day by referring to the humble doughnut. A doughnut is round, has a hole in the middle, and is a delicious way to represent zero. These zero days are now being referred to as ‘doughnut days’. So, where in Melbourne can you find a delicious vegan doughnut? Here’s a quick round-up of the best, so double down and buy these delicious options.

Daniel’s Donuts

Daniel’s Donuts aren’t all vegan, but they do get a worthy mention here. Daniel’s Donuts started in Melbourne’s south-east in 2016 and has since grown to 10 stores across Melbourne. All stores stock a decent selection of vegan doughnuts. You can buy individual veganised flavours like cream and custard, jam and cream, or traditional glazed. If you can’t decide on a flavour, then why not buy an assorted six-pack? Or, if you need a gluten-free vegan option (or two) then you can try their cinnamon and jam option which is made in Daniel’s special gluten-free facility. Just make sure you ask and clarify things before you buy.


Houghnuts make guilt-free baked doughnuts that are vegan, gluten-fee, and refined sugar free. Buy a mixed six-pack of vegan doughnuts or two and have them delivered so you can create a bespoke vegan doughnut cake tower. Houghnuts can only be ordered online, but the wait is worth it!

Mister Nice Guy’s Bakeshop

Melbourne’s first vegan bakeshop specialises in vegan, kosher, sugar and gluten free baked goods as well as fresh deli sandwiches. Mister Nice Guy’s have even created a cartoon-like (think The Simpsons), vegan doughnut, complete with colourful sprinkles that are strategically placed on the icing. There is a gluten-free option, so you might be lucky to score yourself a GF glazed ‘bronut’. Mister Nice Guy’s can also show you how to make their signature vegan maple donut cupcakes if you want to get cooking at home.

OMG! Decadent Donuts

When you’re travelling around Melbourne again, you’ll spot OMG! Decadent Donuts at many of the city’s outdoor markets. They make vegan doughnuts fresh, made to order and they’re certified vegan! OMG’s vegan doughnuts are also gluten-free, yeast free, nut free and Coaliac Australia accredited. Once you order, you can choose the flavoured sugars your vegan doughnuts are rolled in, from lemon, berry, cacao, coffee, beetroot and choc mint to name a few. You can also buy them in bulk in packs of 12. Throughout Melbourne and Victoria, the regions of South Melbourne, North Melbourne, Geelong, Mornington Peninsula and Macedon Ranges have your vegan doughnut needs covered.

As you travel around Melbourne and regional Victoria, make sure you’re observing the current COVID-19 precautions like wearing a mask, carrying anti-bacterial spray in your bag, observing social distancing measures, and not travelling if you’re sick. To keep up to date with the latest regulations, visit the Victorian Government website.
