Pepperbox Doughnuts - NoDa
Solar T. Tauri
Didn't even realize PD had a second location! Packed my laptop up and headed there for a Blueberry Matcha donut pre-breakfast treat, to be immediately followed by a Vegan Breakfast sandwich. Location is delightfully designed, with ample seating for dining in. Donut was great as always. First try at the breakfast sandwich, and it was transformative! Just warm and soft, and moist and delicious! (That herbed mayo sauce is incredible.) SPECIAL THANKS to Leathia & Candice for the amazing morning welcome! Both ladies at the counter were awesome throughout my entire visit!
Had an amazing experience here! Just got coffee and doughnuts but hung out for over an hour while waiting for our dinner reservation. We arrived in NoDa early on a Saturday night ahead of our dinner reservation and ended up walking all the way down Davidson St to this location. It is a cool spot. It's kind of in this old house that has lots of character. I just got a black coffee and my girlfriend got some lemonade or ice tea or something. I cannot speak to the doughnuts but the atmosphere made us feel welcome to hang out for a while playing Guess Who and Battleship. I don't know if this place get a lot of foot traffic but there didn't seem to be much parking. I think this would be a great place to spend a Sunday or Saturday morning reading or catching up with an old friend. Definitely give it a shot!
They were okay but I don't think I will be trying them again. They definitely have a variety of doughnuts but because they are vegan, no butter, they don't taste so good the next day. We wanted to try something different and we did. Very nice customer service as the ladies took their time to explain a great coffee blend that may wake me up for my hour drive back home. Parking is in the back and it looks like a nice little house so be careful not to pass it. If you decide to sit in, they have a nice little walkthrough where you can find sitting.
I liked there was an assortment of donuts to choose from and no one was there at the time so no pressure. To my surprise the mango habanero was really good and the strawberry romulade was delicious. My family at the rest and so nothing was left. Can't wait to try more flavors next time!
Everyone should at least TRY THEM. Dont take my word for it! I bought a dozen. They're beautiful! But they tasted like thick white bread with an ok flavor on top. Maybe because they were gluten free? I am rooting for them! They do well so obviously my opinion is not the majority
