Former Milton restaurant owner David Moore is finding a new and stronger grip in the food business yet again with OMG Decadent Donuts. Eight years after losing Drift Restaurant & Cafe due to the catastrophic Brisbane River flooding of 2011, Mr Moore has been expanding his handcrafted vegan, dairy-free, nut-free and gluten-free doughnut enterprise.

Once just the toast of the Queensland markets, including the regular Milton Markets on Cribb Street,  OMG Decadent Donuts is now available at various food events in Victoria. Plans to set up franchise outlets in other sites across Australia and even New Zealand are also underway. 

For most people, vegan and dairy/gluten-free food usually tastes bland and dry but OMG Decadent Donuts might just shatter your expectations. These snack bites are soft, fluffy and delicate in quality. Speckled with different sugar flavours of your choice and using locally-sourced ingredients, the doughnuts live up to its name as a decadent delight.

“When we first started the business, we struggled with what to call it, and as we cooked donuts and experimented with crafting our beautiful sugars made with fresh fruits and spices, people would bite into them, and with a mouthful of decadent deliciousness, exclaim, ‘Oh My God!’” Mr Moore shared on their Facebook page.

“Our OMG Decadent Donuts are loved by everyone – especially those with dairy, gluten, egg, yeast and nut allergies and particularly by vegans, who can’t get enough of our bundles of love – which not only make our donuts so unique, but our business so incredible.”

Mr Moore humbly started OMG Decadent Donuts with the hope that people would be interested in “buying a few.” But his food concoction picked up massively since its launch a couple of years ago and it has been truly been a big blessing.

After losing Drift, the restaurant which was like a baby to him, Mr Moore admittedly suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He struggled to find his footing and lost confidence in his ability as a food entrepreneur.

Creating OMG Decadent Donuts was indeed a fresh start for Mr Moore. Aside from the successful business model, he is also proud to see people with various food intolerances enjoy his doughnuts. 

“Our donuts are so unique that both Vegan Australia and Coeliac Association of Australia have certified our company,  setting a benchmark for continued quality and excellence.”
