Heaven help us ... what may be Portland's best donuts are now within much-too-easy walking distance of the Press Herald office. The Holy Donut #2 opened this morning at 7 Exchange St.
Seriously, though, it's a good thing for owner Leigh Kellis and a GREAT thing for the Old Port, which was previously lacking in bakeries. Specifically, bakeries serving Maine potato donuts in flavors like mojito, chocolate sea salt and sweet-potato ginger.
Some new items at the Old Port location are espresso and raised jelly donuts with Maine blueberry jam (above).
I'll see you there ...Tweet
