The Austin outpost of Voodoo Doughnuts will soon not be the only place where locals can get their hands on the sweet treats. Starting tomorrow morning, the Buzz Mill, a 24-hour coffee shop and bar off Riverside Drive, is going to have them, too.

And once the second location of the Buzz Mill opens off South Congress Avenue — right next door to the Infinite Monkey Theorem winery — the doughnuts will be available there as well.

Among the Voodoo Doughnuts options at the Buzz Mill: the Voodoo Doll, a raspberry-filled doughnut with chocolate frosting and a pretzel stake; the Bacon Maple Bar, a doughnut topped with bacon maple frosting; and the Diablos Rex, a chocolate-cake doughnut with chocolate frosting, red sprinkles, a vanilla pentagram and chocolate chips in the middle.

As if that’s not enough for our stomachs to handle, the Buzz Mill is also going to have an array of vegan options that include “fruit-cake doughnuts, which come with banana, applesauce, or pumpkin choices that are topped with maple frosting, chocolate frosting, toasted or flake coconut, Oreo’s, Chico sticks, powdered sugar, cinnamon, or sprinkles,” according to a news release.

You can thank Jason Sabala, owner of the Buzz Mill, for satisfying your sweet tooth at any hour of the day. A longtime friend of Voodoo’s owners, Cat Daddy and Tres Shannon, he was elated when he found out they were opening another location of the Portland-based doughnut shop here. People in the downtown area, he said in the release, had been needing “a day and night option for folks with a sweet tooth, and there’s no better choice than Voodoo.”

The second location of the Buzz Mill, which should be opened in February, will be at 121 Pickle Rd. It’ll offer much of the same as the original place at 1505 Town Creek Dr., from live music to the infused spirits menu to the separate study room. Plus, Sabala is hoping to spread the lumberjack vibe of the Buzz Mill to other cities, most notably San Marcos, later this year and next.
