On Halloween, a devilishly delicious thing happened to the city of Austin. Portland, Oregon’s famous Voodoo Doughnuts officially opened their first Texas location in the heart of dirty sixth. Just in time to ruin your pre-Thanksgiving diet.

The space is colorful with a touch of whimsy.

The northwest import had already been quietly training staff and sporadically slinging doughnuts for a few weeks. Unlike your average doughnut, Voodoo takes pastries to the next level with crazy toppings like candy and cereal.

The Ain't That a Peach Fritter was by far our group's favorite.

Much like other gourmet doughnut shops in town, these pastries are decadent and definitely best when shared. We put together a box that included the Longhorn Cream doughnut (a Bavarian cream doughnut topped with maple frosting and decorated with an abstract longhorn face), Dirt doughnut (topped with vanilla frosting and crushed Oreos), Captain my Captain doughnut (topped with Cap’n Crunch cereal), and the giant Ain't That A Peach Fritter doughnut (a peach fritter topped with cream cheese frosting and orange and pink sprinkles). During our visit, the shop even had a large doughnut cake decorated with an orange longhorn in memory of Bevo XIV.

The rotating shelves give you a peek at what's available.

Taking over the former Bourbon Girl spot, Voodoo kept some of the bar’s design elements like the neon lit American flag and the bourbon girl mural. The space is bright and colorful with golden chandeliers and whimsical artwork.

One of the space's highlights is the neon lit American flag, a leftover from Bourbon Girl.

To meet your hankering for sweets no matter the hour, the restaurant is open 24 hours from 7am Wednesday until they sell out on Sunday. But do remember it’s a cash only establishment. Probably best to keep the icing off your credit card statements.
