Being a vegan is the latest rage, and while donuts have been popular for decades, eating them has become a more mainstream activity since everyone discovered just how Instagrammable they are. In any case, if you put together vegan and donut, you’re basically Instagram famous before even posting your first image. Finding a vegan donut can be a tall task at times, as they are not as plentiful as those regular dairy-infused ones. So for all the donut-loving vegans out there, Culture Trip has rounded up the best vegan donuts in NYC.
