Voodoo Doughnuts and Stumptown Coffee – two must-haves when visiting Portland

Sponsored by Alaska Airlines

Some things just go hand in hand, and coffee and doughnuts are one of those pairings. HI Now host Kanoe Gibson continues her Travel Tuesday adventures in Oregon by visiting two iconic eateries: Voodoo Doughnut and Stumptown Coffee Roasters.

About Voodoo Doughnut:
Voodoo Doughnut is the brainchild of old friends Cat Daddy and Tres. In 2003, they decided to embark on a shared entrepreneurial venture — something that combined quality hospitality with their daring do-it-yourself brand of show business. They rented a hole-in-the-wall storefront scrunched between two Old Town nightclubs, joked to friends and family about being bent on “world doughnut domination” and opened Voodoo Doughnut. Their initial pastry offerings were a mix of the classic and the unconventional. Voodoo Doughnut now boasts of seven locations: Four in Oregon, one in Denver, CO, one in Austin, TX, one at Universal CityWalk in Hollywood, CA and another shop at Universal Resort in Orlando, FL.

About Stumptown Coffee Roasters:
Nearly 20 years ago, Stumptown Coffee Roasters began roasting exemplary coffee. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Stumptown is committed to sourcing, roasting and serving some of the best coffee in the world. Stumptown, a staple of Ace Hotels, counts a total of 11 cafes across the country: four in Portland; three in New York; one in Seattle; one in Los Angeles; one in New Orleans; and one in Chicago.
