My family and I were on a recent trip to Maine, to visit with some friends We were looking for something other than the usual hotel fare to start the day. I've been to Kona, Hawaii (Holy Donuts) and Portland, Or. (Voodoo Doughnut) and have tried many doughnuts, but believe me, these are special. Their made with potato flour vs regular grain flour, so there is a taste and texture difference. These were light, aerie and not too sweet. GREAT with a morning cup of coffee. We bought a box of 6 and went back later that day to take some back to the hotel. Nothing like a midnight snack watching the Golden State Warriors win a game.

The same people behind the Holy Donut on Park Ave, this place is hopping from early in the morning until they run out of donuts. Get there early if you want to scoop some GF goodies!

Great local donuts, but be prepared to wait in line for them. The potato-based recipe might sound odd but it works! A variety of interesting flavors but not overly sweet or artificial like some other novelty donut shops. Definitely worth a visit.
