At the end of July after skyping with our German friends, who are now back in Germany, we decided it was high time we took the plunge and find out what was SO great about Voodoo Doughnut. We packed the kids in the car and headed downtown. We found a parking spot in a lot nearby and crossed the street and made our way to the end of the long line that stood before us. Thankfully it was a nice morning and a man was playing some good music on the street corner. After about 1 1/2 we finally arrived hot, tired and had a cranky little girl at this point at the doorway of the longed for donut shop. I joked with the girl standing in line with us that after this long a wait I will be leaving with a dozen donuts not just a couple :-) She told me that she was there earlier in the morning and the line was over twice as long as it was right now. She decided to eat her breakfast and people watch until the line slimmed down before she found her place in line. Apparently there is ALWAYS a long line at this place.
The sign posted on the door said that no credit cards are accepted, just cash. They did however have an ATM conveniently located inside the establishment. When I saw this sign I was thankful that we had cash on us, because we don't use an ATM card and we had a credit card. To think that I would have stood in line for 1 1/2 to be denied the beloved donut would have been beyond irritating.
The inside of Voodoo is quite a sight. With the blaring music, employees yelling out crazy names of donuts and the smell of the donuts had all your senses at their peek. We quickly picked out our donuts from the display case that was twirling about. I felt pressured to make a decision quickly as I knew there were tons of people outside in heat trying to make there way in. We finally paid our bill and headed outside to taste these creative looking donuts.
