Cartems Donuterie opened last Wednesday at Carrall and West Hastings bringing the fancified doughnut to Gastown. Demand shows that Vancouver’s #1 culinary hive was keen to have their own version of Seattle’s Top Pot, Portland’s Voodoo and San Francisco’s Dynamo; Cartems has sold out of doughnuts before 3pm every day since.

Cartems’ founder Jordan Cash turns age-old dough frying into epicurean endeavor, serving over 10 varieties including honey pecorino, carrot cake (pictured above), earl grey (pictured above), citrus glazed, maple bacon, triple chocolate, vegan and gluten free. He’s leasing the six month Gastown pop-up shop from Sean Heather, the mastermind behind the Gastown hospitality empire that includes Irish Heather Gastropub, Salt Tasting Room, Judas Goat and the new Bitter Tasting Room.
