Portland's little-donut-shop-that-could, The Holy Donut, is opening its second location, in the heart of the Old Port at 7 Exchange Street. The space was previously occupied by Exchange Street Cafe. A post on their Facebook page today says that they expect to open in October.
Since Leigh Kellis opened her Park Street donut shop two years ago, her distinctively delicious Maine potato donuts in flavors like chocolate sea salt and mojito-glazed, have been touted by the local and national press. She's been featured on "Anderson Live" with Anderson Cooper and CNN's food blog, Eatocracy.
As a Holy Donut fan, I've always been happy that Park Aveue isn't within easy walking distance. The new location will be just two blocks from the newsroom ... I'm doomed.Tweet
