What is Voodoo Doughnut?
Just because The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar and Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen just weren’t quirky enough…
Voodoo Doughnut is a fast-growing West Coast chain, making its very first appearance east of the Mississippi at CityWalk Orlando. Its forte is some of the most eccentric doughnuts you can think of – covered in Tang, frosted with grape dust, flavored with Butterfingers, or topped by a piece of bubblegum (still in the wrapper, thank you). And that’s just scratching the surface: you can find vegan options, get your doughnuts served up in a wooden coffin, or, even, get married at the location.
Such oddities make Voodoo a must-do stop at Universal’s restaurant complex, but it’s the quality that will keep you coming back once the novelty of eating voodoo doll-fashioned doughnuts wears off. You’ll quickly find yourself itching to try at least one entry per category, from the raised and cake doughnuts (such as Oh Captain, My Captain and Diablos Rex, respectively) to the cruellers and fritters (Lemon Chiffon and Memphis Mafia).

Voodoo Doughnut – insider tip
We know that you’ll be good vacationers and have your top three (or four or five) doughnuts picked out well before you step up to the counter to order, thanks to the menu being listed on this guide page here and to the plethora of displays they have stationed throughout the store there. However, there’s something pretty important you’ll need to keep in mind: once a particular doughnut has sold out, that’ll be it until the Voodoo employees can get the next batch cooked, decorated, and restocked on the shelves. Be sure to have a back-up list in mind should your favorite treat(s) be MIA.
Voodoo Doughnut – pre-order!
Don’t want to have to worry about the hassle of waiting in line (or of having your favorite doughnut be sold out by the time you get to the counter)? No problem! The store has instituted a special pre-order system: you can call, text, or email Voodoo two hours in advance with your order, and they’ll have it waiting for you by the time you arrive. (There’s a catch, though – there’s a dozen-doughnut minimum. Darn – guess we have to eat more!)
The phone number is 407-267-6897, and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy pre-ordering!
What’s the story behind Voodoo Doughnut?
No, Voodoo doesn’t feature a fictitious backstory like Toothsome Chocolate Emporium does, but the ever-expanding company does have one of the most compelling narratives out there. To get an idea of its history and a general accounting of its extracurricular activities, from its indie recording label to its tie-in liquors, see our original article here.
Voodoo Doughnut – theming
Have we mentioned just how quirky Voodoo Doughnut is yet? Just in case the doughnuts themselves aren’t enough to convey this, the restaurant’s decor more than closes the gap, placing fun secrets seemingly around every corner (or, even, on the spiral staircase that leads to nowhere). We’ve compiled this handy-dandy list for you to check out while you’re waiting for your baked deliciousness to be served up:
- Before you even enter the store, be sure to check out the massive doughnut throne outside (and take a few pics of yourself on it, of course). Out of the nine Voodoo Doughnut locations across the country, this kingly gastronomical seat is exclusive to just this one.
- Be sure to pay attention to Voodoo’s stained-glass murals, as they’re actually representative of real people. The ones on the left and right are of the company’s founders, Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon, while the middle one is of the former CEO, Robert “Lobster” Ludwig, who died from brain cancer in January 2015.
- Once inside, check out the supports that go up to the roof in the middle of the eatery – they have the Voodoo alphabet on them.
- The left-hand wall features the numbers 97204, which is the ZIP code of Portland, Oregon, the site of the chain’s very first store. (Side fun fact: there’s an additional Voodoo in Portland [with a different ZIP], along with a permanently-stationed food truck, as well.)
- That spiral staircase we mentioned is actually imported from Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen; after having it in its gift shop for a year-and-a-half, Universal pulled it out in order to free up more space for merchandise. Toothsome’s loss is Voodoo’s gain, of course.
- Keep your eyes peeled for the portrait of the comedian Carrot Top hidden amongst the restaurant’s eclectic bric-a-brac; this is the Orlando location’s “spirit channeler,” a local who is lovingly rendered in a velvet painting.
- The other feature exclusive to CityWalk Orlando’s Voodoo Doughnut is the decorating counter, where you can watch the next batch of donuts get, well, decorated.
- Above the kitchen area, you’ll find a huge mural made entirely out of duct tape by arist Mona Superhero.
- Orlando Informer was the very first ones to purchase the wooden coffin of doughnuts in Florida. Go, team!
(We have pictures of many of these goodies – be sure to check out our photo gallery at the bottom of the page.)
