Zilla's Donuts, Abbotsford - Vegan Options

I found this place only because it popped up on Google Maps in a place where I was not expecting to see a donut shop (in the middle of a residential area). It turns out that I am the last to know about it as they were already closed the first time we ventured by one Saturday afternoon (sold out!). The next time I showed up just after opening at 8:30 am on Sunday morning and had my first thing in the morning choice of some beautiful donuts.

Located in a newish mixed-use building in a neighbourhood close to George Ferguson and Gladys in Abbotsford, you will need to Google Map it yourself to get there. Of course, I would not have gone out of my way on a Sunday morning if the temptation of plant-based donuts did not present itself. I ordered 6 (one of each for that day) and a coffee to go and took them home to share.
In order to not send our blood sugar levels to dangerous levels, Mharie and I cut each donut in half and then into quarters (we have to try them all, don't we?) and so we really only ate a donut and a half each! The rest of the donuts lasted another day or two and stood up pretty well to being refrigerated. I can't remember what each of them was but we are looking at S'mores and some sort of candied walnut thing above. The walnut thing was cream filled, amazing and very rich. The chocolate was very good on the S'mores donut which is a challenge when you are making something animal product free.
The others were, roughly, Black Forest, Matcha, something chocolate with raspberry and something a little more tropical (with the pineapple). The BF donut was ridiculous. Cherry pie filling filled as you would expect with again, pretty good chocolate, this was my personal favourite. The Matcha was pretty impressive as well.
These donuts were all cakey and substantial and not of the airy Krispy Kreme ilk. You really don't need to have more than one. They were all impressive and worth the $21 for a half dozen.
The plant-based donuts are available on the weekends and they open at 8:30 am. I don't know if you have to be there that early, but for me, it's not worth taking a chance on missing out! And yes, their logo has the silhouette of Godzilla so there is that. Also, they plan to build a deck outside one of these days.
