Lucky's Donuts / 49th Parallel Coffee - Vegan Options

We have been to 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters in the past (in my pre-vegan days) for great coffee and donuts. Now when I look for donuts, I'm seeking plant-based/cruelty-free varieties so imagine my delight when I found that Lucky's Donuts crank out a few vegan varieties.

This location is on Thurlow just north of West Georgia but apparently, there are 3 other locations of this partnership made in heaven.
We ended up here twice on the weekend because on the first visit which was in the afternoon, they had almost sold out of the vegan donuts. We ended up with one donut to share and the coffee was served in takeout cups for whatever reason. It was still great coffee (I like my coffee dark and black) but it is so much nicer in their actual cups.
In addition to 3 or 4 vegan donuts, they usually have a vegan lemon loaf or banana bread and one other item on their menu (I think that they had soup the second time we were there). On that first visit, we had the vegan Fruit and Floral donut which I thought was interesting and really delicious. Mharie did not care for it finding it too "floral". I am no donut scientist but these seemed less cakey and more moist and dense than most donuts that I have had.
On my second visit, I got the 3 donuts available to go which included the Fruit and Floral again and 2 other varieties as you can see. They again had that rich sweet somewhat dense texture. You certainly don't need to eat more than one of these as they are quite substantial.
There are tables inside and a few outside. Also, you can drift into the lobby of whatever building this is and there are tables there as well. They get quite busy at times so don't be a dick and take up space with your laptop if people are waiting to sit down. I am somewhat thankful that 49th Parallel and Lucky's Donuts are not close to home.  I am not sure that I would be able to exercise the appropriate restraint.
