Today I’m sharing one of my favorite guilty pleasures here in San Francisco. I originally discovered Pepples Donuts when I was wandering aimlessly, but happily, through and around the Ferry Building during the epic Saturday morning Farmer’s Market.

This donut shop has a little something for everyone – From Earl Grey to Maple to Chocolate Coconut and Blueberry – And the bonus is that their goodies are organic and vegan.

It’s a win-win!
