Dark Horse Coffee Roasters is a popular coffee roaster in San Diego, with three coffee bar locations. It’s been on my to-do list to try for a while now, but it quickly moved to the top of my list when I saw that they also offer donuts from their craft vegan donut company, Skinny Donuts, which just happen to fit nicely on top of their coffee cups.
This past weekend, we stopped in for some morning fuel before heading out for a mini road trip. And because I have a serious weakness for donuts and it was a long weekend, we decided to get all four of the donut flavors offered that day.
Nitro Cold Brew, Maple Donut, Sprinkle Donut
Salted Maple Iced Cold Brew Latte, Matcha Donut, Cherry Pie Donut
The vegan cake donuts were moist and light. I’m always hesitant with vegan baked goods as they often have an unusual aftertaste or an unusual texture. However, these tasted just like regular cake donuts.
We enjoyed our coffees as well. I preferred the salted maple cold brew latte, which is a flavor I haven’t had before. The maple syrup wasn’t too overwhelming or too sweet.
Overall, we had a nice first visit and would return again. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed what we had here.
