DonOt miss Pepples Organic Vegan Donuts


What do you do on a Saturday Morning in the East Bay with a hip and cool older sister and her two daughters? Well if your family is like mine, after a Pilates Session and run, you load the kids up in the car, and head to Pepples for some organic vegan brunch, donuts included.
We stumbled in on a little section of hipster-cyclist Portland, Oregon in the East Bay and were greeted by a very enthusiastic owner, and an overwhelming display case of vegan donuts.

Flavors like:
Keffir Lime
Salted Caramel
Blueberry
Raspberry Chai
Orange Cremesicle
Chocolate Cookie
Chocolate Coconut
Vanilla
Cinnamon Sugar
to name just a few, stared at us

It was a very very hard decision to make. No, I did not try all of them, tempting as it was (this woman did though) We shared a Keffir Lime and Candy Cap Mushroom donut while waiting for brunch.

(for the record CandyCap mushrooms taste like maple syrup. In fact the syrup for the pancakes was made from it!!!)

delicious vegan tofu scrambles (with spinach and eggplant) w a side of hashbrowns and fantastic whole wheat toast.
Donuts are best shared. Especially if with adorable company.

BRING ME SOME! I'll freeze them for my vegan month. I think I've decided on April :) Also, tell me all about Portland when you get back. It's another place I've always wanted to visit.
