They do not use preservatives in their dough and make everything fresh by hand every day. To keep things seasonal and interesting they rotate their flavours monthly, while still offering a standard range of 6 classic donuts. They also give back to the community, by donating roughly €2,000 monthly from sales of the vegan charity doughnut.
