A guest recently asked for donut recommendations and all the delicious donuts you can get in Southern Maine started dancing through my head. Donuts are one of my favorites!
Below are a few, but by no means complete, list of places in the area to grab some donuts if you’re craving them too.
Reilly’s Bakery. Biddeford, Maine. Reilly’s is the local go-to spot for pastries in the Biddeford/Saco area. A box of their pastries has been at many of our family celebrations. They also make fresh donuts every morning.
Congdon’s Doughnuts. Wells, Maine. There’s often a line waiting to buy some of their delicious, fresh donuts. They also host Congdon’s After Dark with food trucks, music and local craft beer including one beer made with their doughnuts!
Holy Donut. Scarborough, Maine. This shop started out of Portland but now they have multiple locations. They make delicious Maine potato donuts so if you’re looking for something with a local spin this is the spot. I’m partial to their fresh lemon donuts.
Eight 8 Donuts. Portland, Maine. These are my favorite donuts. Warm little mini donuts in flavors like Maine Maple, Bam Bam and Cookies and Cream. They serve them out of a food truck on the Eastern Prom in Portland but are opening a brick and mortar in the Old Port area of Portland soon. That makes my heart happy.
Enjoy and save one for me!
