“Good things come in pink boxes” is Voodoo Doughnut’s mantra as the irreverent, world famous pastry shop sweetens up Universal CityWalk with its first-ever California location, situated adjacent to Universal Studios Hollywood, The Entertainment Capital of L.A.
Hailing originally from Portland, OR by founders Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon, the new L.A. pastry shop serves a range of 60 eclectic doughnuts, including vegan options and the Hollywood Cream, created for Universal CityWalk. The eccentric pair were on hand for the opening to decorate Voodoo Doll doughnuts and mingle with guests.
A variety of scrumptious flavored doughnuts are available, such as Grape Ape, Mango Tango, the Voodoo Bubble and Bacon Maple Bar as well as their iconic Voodoo Doll. A popular take-out option, Voodoo Doughnuts are served in signature pink boxes or in a custom-made wooden coffin.
The new location also features another Portland specialty: Stumptown Coffee, which brews regularly from the first-ever pink Stumptown espresso machine located exclusively at Universal CityWalk’s Voodoo Doughnut.
Keeping with their longstanding tradition, Voodoo Doughnut helps celebrate marital bliss by hosting weddings ceremonies, complete with a doughnut and coffee catered reception. Um, yes please!

Voodoo Doughnut has expanded to multiple U.S. cities in Eugene, OR, Denver, CO, and Austin, TX. The CityWalk location marks their first California establishment but if the lines out the door each day are any indication, more are sure to come.
The new Voodoo Doughnut shop finds its sweet spot at the inimitable Universal CityWalk, located near the “5 Towers” outdoor concert stage and adjacent to Universal Cinema, which recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation.
