The love for our made-to-order donuts started with our food truck in Portland in 2013. That only grew with the addition of our seasonal ski shop at Sugarloaf Mountain around 2015/2016, which then allowed us to open a shop on Federal Street Portland that operates year round.

We went here on vacation through a friend’s recommendation. Let me just say, it did not disappoint! Small warm donuts are the bees knees! Who knew?! Perfect for sharing and sampling! We ordered the 6 flavors and the lemon flair was our families favorite. They ALL were amazing through and it shows why they have won so many awards! Ok, so not only are the donuts amazing but the owners were a joy to chat with too and made the memory even better! It just so happened that as we walked in the owners did too. Their excitement around their business was contagious. And made us all beam, hearing them discuss their journey. They also gave us excellent tourist recommendations. A win win. Finally, the atmosphere is so perfect for a family! You can stand outside and watch the donuts be made through the huge glass windows. My girls loved it and us adults too. The inside is so bright and inviting, and CLEAN! I honestly think I could have eaten the donuts on the floor it was so clean! We found the interior so cute we took a bunch of pics to remember it. We ate our donuts on the charming outside patio tables and soaked in the charm of the city. It was a great morning and we highly recommend it to locals and those checking out the area. The hospitality itself will put you in a great mood!
Delicious! Delicious! Delicious! Please don't hesitate to stop by the wonderful Eighty 8 donut shop. These are a must have in the Portland ME area. We had multiple flavors ranging from a simple cinnamon sugar to some of the "speciality bites" and they are all outstanding. The shop is super cute with a little nook upstairs to enjoy your sweet treats if you want to hang out for a minute. Plus, the people who work there are super kind and nice. Great people, making great donuts, bringing joy into the world.

10/10 absolute winning establishment right here. The service was top notch. The donuts are bite sized and cooked fresh - and served warm ! After doing a local “donut tour” across the few donut shops in town (stiff competition, as they are also really good !), this one reigns supreme in my humble opinion.

If you like donuts,you have to check this place out. The small things are a tad annoying, like you have to get 6 donuts of the same kind, and the line and preparation are a little slow. They don't have WiFi access for the customers either. However, you will probably want all 6 donuts of the kind you want, and the reason it's slow is because they are made to order. The quality and creativity of flavors are very high so have to give five stars.

Only missing a star due to the tourist pricing. But delicious little morsels for sure! It was hard not to eat all six micro donuts right away. I had the salted caramel.

Maine Donut Tour @ Portland Old Port
May 28 @ 9:30 am – 10:45 am
Maine Donut Tour @ Portland Old Port | Portland | Maine | United States

Beginning in the heart of Portland’s Historic Old Port, we will first head down to the working waterfront and the acclaimed The Holy Donut, skipping the likely line out the door, to indulge along the storied Long Wharf. Meandering back along the iconic cobblestone streets of our donut trail, we’ll make way to the granite built Customs House, imagining a thriving 1800s port of tall ships unloading goods. Onward, past the armory, now a historic gem of a hotel, in search of Captain Mowatt’s remnant canon balls that originally burned down the city via harbor canon fire in 1775. Just up around the corner, is our second stop, Eighty 8 Donuts, once a food truck busting at the welds, now Portland’s newest fried dough all-stars are known for their delectable bite-sized treats all over the state. There’s no better place to appreciate these culinary delights than right along the granite of City Hall! Just beware, this building has burned down three times, along with much of the rest of the city. Continuing on to take in more of the rich history of the Downtown peninsula – our oldest church building, a congregation dating back to 1674, and the picturesque Monument Square at City Center. Then, our final donut stop of the tour- HiFi Donuts, staying true to old world styling while glamorous in new world foodie goodness. By this point, you should be dumbfounded by just how all three of these world class bakeries are within our short storied walk of one another, and agree – this is the sweetest walk there ever was! Only a short jaunt remaining from here, but much to take in of our lobstering history and charming architecture. We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate these donut shops and our city with you. See you soon!
