Last Saturday I attended the grand opening of Dough Yo’s vegan doughnut shop in Southend and I had the privilege of being the first ever customer!
Dough Yo’s is run by my friend Nathan who is a very active member of the Essex vegan activism community, with Matt of Veg Heads cooking up burgers and hotdogs in the kitchen. The café is on Queen Street just off the High Street so very easy to get to.
I went with a few friends and it was great to see the long queue forming when we got there just before they opened. We also saw a few other friends while we were there. Us vegans love our doughnuts!
I went for a hot dog, coffee and chocolate hazelnut doughnut and it was all fabulous.
There were many different doughnuts on offer so I bought a “Homer” home for my Husband and my friends enjoyed some other delights.
So when you’re next in Southend I highly recommend you head down to Dough Yo’s and get your fill of vegan treats!
