Tucson, Ariz. – Who cares about doughnuts? PETA and millions of Americans do—that’s who! That’s why PETA’s “official” tasters set out to find the Top 6 Vegan-Friendly Doughnut Shops in the land in time for National Doughnut Day (June 6). Their travels took them to Tucson, where Le Cave’s Bakery grabbed the number six spot. This local institution has been making vegan doughnuts with potato flour and vegetable oil on the south side of Tucson since 1935! Flavors include standard glazed, maple, and chocolate. Filled varieties include cinnamon-apple, raspberry, lemon, mango, and strawberry as well as delicious apple fritters.

“Like so many other successful companies, Le Cave’s Bakery proves that meat-, dairy-, and egg-free foods are the best way to go,” says PETA Special Projects Manager Alicia Woempner. “All the bakeries on PETA’s list demonstrate how easy and delicious it is to choose cruelty-free treats.”

Taking top honors is Mighty-O Donuts in Seattle. Rounding out the top six spots are Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, Pa.; Ronald’s Donuts in Las Vegas; Pepples Organic Donuts in the San Francisco area; and Tandem Doughnuts in Missoula, Mont. Honorable mentions go to Voodoo Doughnut in Denver and Portland and Eugene, Ore., and Donut Friend in Los Angeles.

Le Cave’s Bakery will receive a congratulatory letter and a framed certificate from PETA.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
