Thanks for the Love Food Network

Mojo Monkey was chosen as Minnesota's best for Food Network's 50 States of Donuts
Let us preface this blog post by saying, we aren't in the donut industry to collect accolades or recognition.  We ARE in the donut industry to try new things, mix unique flavors and create those smiles on the kids' (and adults') faces when they bite into something delicious.

That being said, we aren't afraid to brag a little bit when we are recognized for our hard work.  (We know, it's not like us as Minnesotans to brag).  

Recently, it was brought to our attention that a little outfit out of New York City, called the Food Network, which also has some offices in Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, Jersey City, Cincinnati, and Knoxville, Tennessee had named us to their best donuts (they spell it doughnuts) in America list.  

This was humbling recognition and made us blush a little bit.  As just a little shop on West 7th, we aren't accustomed to national recognition.

If you don't have time to click through and find us, we'll save you a little time with their write up here:
"Mango-Glazed Doughnut at Mojo Monkey Donuts: Minnesota
The exotic flavors of this mango-glazed doughnut are one example of Owner Lisa Clark’s mission to make amazing raised doughnuts (assisted by her pastry-enthused children). Mojo Monkey Donuts’ signature yeast dough (crafted with locally brewed beer, yams and parsnips) is made into a ring, then topped with organic mango glaze and unsweetened coconut for a tropically inspired treat."


If you do want to page through the list we're page 32 and surrounded by some pretty incredible looking donut shops from across the country.

Thanks for allowing us to brag a little bit.  And thanks for your support of Mojo Monkey Donuts.

Buy Your Mother a Donut on Sunday - It's Her Day!

It's time for Momma to have a donut!

Nothing says "I love you mom" like a delicious, creatively-inspired, culinary creation - better known as a Mojo Monkey donut.

To prove this, we will have an incredibly diverse selection of donuts on May 8 for you to select just the right one - or dozen - for your mom.

Diverse you say?  Well, yes.  Let's take a closer look.
Thank your mom for all those years of packing your cold lunches with a PB&J BISMARCK.  For that golfing mom in your life, try the ARNIE PALMER BISMARCK - the classic lemonade and iced tea mix turned into a donut.


Thank Mom for all those fun camping trips and stories around the campfire with a S'MORES BISMARCK or reminisce on those fancy dinners and deserts at the St. Paul Hotel with a CREME BRULEE BISMARCK.

The Red Velvet Donut

**We're bringing back the RED VELVET as it is our most popular donut on Mother's Day! 

Remember when your Mom would have those weak moments and let you dive into some of the best sweets ever like when the ice cream man's bell went don't your street and you got to have a treat - relive that mom moment with an ORANGE CREAMSICLE BISMARK.  If your mom let you eat cookie dough straight from the bowl, then she totally deserves a COOKIE DOUGH BULLSEYE on Sunday.  Not to mention all those Twins games with your Mom when the cotton candy vendor walked by and your mom's hand went up to get his attention.  Enjoy a COTTON CANDY RING to remember those good old days!


Those are just a few of the donuts that may bring back awesome Mom memories.  Others we will have on Sunday include:


  • German chocolate 
  • Chocolate cake - just like mom used to make!
  • Maple cake
  • Powder sugar cake 
  • Vanilla glazed old fashioned
  • Chocolate ganache old fashioned
  • Maple bacon bar - because mom's deserve bacon on Mother's Day!
  • Chocolate ganache raised ring
  • Classic raised ring - for that classic mom out there.
  • Caramel raised ring
  • Mango coconut - we know at least one mom that's getting this one!
  • Bear paw
  • Cinnamon cardamom orange bun  -  It has MOM In the name!
  • Apple fritter
  • Cherry fritter
  • Sprinkle
  • Tres leches
  • Cinnamon cake
  • Chocolate bacon bar - for the mom who deserves bacon AND chocolate!
  • Cherry Almond Bismarck

You can't go wrong this Mother's Day with a stop at Mojo Monkey Donuts.  Place your order ahead of time to guarantee availability. 
(651) 224-0142 There are a lot of mom's around so these donuts will go fast!  We open at 6:30am (while mom is still sleeping!)

Wild for Donuts - Mojo Launches "W" Donut to Carry Wild Through Playoffs


We're excited to cheer on the Minnesota Wild as they return to the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Last year, we got caught up in hockey hysteria and created the"Dubnut" donut in honor of white hot goaltender Devan Dubnyk.  This delicious creation had a scoop of cookie dough blocking the 5-hole. It was brilliant and we think helped lead the team into the second round. (We're biased)

It's been a team effort this year so we will not be highlighting any one player. Rather we will have the Classic Raised Glazed "W" with team colored frosting.  This "W" is for Wild, for Win and for What are we gonna do when we win the cup!
"I know baking, but I'm learning hockey and I'm really excited to once again pair them up to celebrate the Wild playoff run and give Wild fans a delicious donut." said Lisa Clark, Owner of Mojo Monkey Donuts.
The "W" donuts will be available on Thursday when the Wild open their first round series against the Dallas Stars and will be available daily until they are eliminated or, better yet, win the Stanley Cup. (Note:  we are closed Mondays)

Order them in bulk for the office on game days (we love when you call ahead - (651) 224-0142) or mix and match them with our other delicious donuts.

Show your Wild pride and stop in for your "W" donuts!

We are located at 1169 7th St W, St Paul, MN 55102.


“The belle of the ball is Mojo Monkey Donuts, St. Paul’s newest shop. It has everything you’d ever want in a donut shop: crullers as light as air, double-chocolate donuts as intensely chocolaty as devil’s food cake, mocha-crème filled donuts full of lush custard and true mocha depth.”
