Portland Adventures, Pt. 1: Blue Star Donuts

At the UCDA 2019 Design Conference in Portland, the buzz was all about Voodoo Doughnuts. EVERYONE had to go to Voodoo Doughnuts.

Well, I’m not everyone. I listened to some very trusted sources and was told that Blue Star Donuts was the REAL place to go. So that’s where I went.

As I waited in line, I watched the craftsmanship of the donuts being made.

Founded in Portland back in 2012, I loved their vibe, the motto(s), and especially the donuts. I got the lemon curd/key lime and the PBJ. They were both delish.

Looking at their website I see they have hit SoCal. Planning my trip now!

See more Oregon photos at my main website.

Thank you. Your advice has guided me in the right directions in the past as well. Likewise, I have no idea what the fascination is with VooDoo or a slew of other businesses that everyone tells me is a "must". I try them and they're more of a "Are you kidding me?" I will look for Blue Star when they hit here.

While Voodoo has a lot of energy and cool pop culture and wacky flavors, I have found them to be a bit dry and not as tasty as I would want them to be.
