A hideaway no longer

New City Café on Parsells Avenue serves a range of espresso-based drinks, filter coffee, and locally-made pastries — but the real purpose of New City is behind the scenes.

When Jennifer Johnson opened the doors of Misfit Doughnuts and Treats to the public for the first time on May 13, her entire stock of vegan desserts was wiped out in a little under three hours. With doughnut flavors like lemon poppy seed, cannoli, s'mores, and blood orange white chocolate, Johnson is aiming for vegan-friendly decadence, and maybe convince some skeptics along the way.
