Introducing Hello Donuts, A Sweet Kensington Gem

Finally, after many months of waiting, I tried the latest donut company based in Philadelphia-- Hello Donuts. They seem to be the answer to the other side of town where the popular Dottie's Donuts is unreachable. With two vegan donut offerings every weekend and delivered to various places like Reanimator Coffee, the time was now to take a bite out of these beautifully photographed donuts.

At Franny Lou's Porch, my favorite spot to write and read lately, I ordered my favorite warm beverage-- the Alice Walker (matcha tea latte with soy milk and maple syrup drizzle)-- along with two enticing pineapple-ginger donuts. Yes, two. I had a terrible week. I deserved this.

These donuts (coconut based by the way) are incredibly sweet and delicious. The fruity pineapple flavor is authentic and perfectly balanced with the right amount of spicy kick ginger. The little pieces of pineapple on top are a nice, aesthetic touch to a yummy cake and the glistening icing drips pleasingly onto fingers and plate. I love also that it reminds me of the fancy fruit donuts by Artisa Dough in NYC.
Overall, a great sugar high and impressive start to the weekend. I cannot wait to try
Hello Donuts' other creative flavors.


  1. I've been waiting for so long for them to open up! I can't wait to try.

  2. Pineapple ginger sounds like such a great combination!
