Maine potato donuts? Well why not. Very good. Took a bit to get used to be I really liked it!! Donuts are the main attraction here - they did have a breakfast type sandwich with egg - but most everyone was enjoying the freshly made donuts in this cozy setting.

This is a must stop on any foodie venture into Portland. Perhaps not the most sophisticated item you will try but unusual and scrumptious. We bought the savory breakfast donut to eat there - you've gotta try it - fried like a zeppoli, a bit crispy and filled with eggs, bacon and cheese. You'll never want an ordinary bacon, egg and cheese sandwich again (although I'm positive this one packs a much greater caloric punch).

We took six to go so we could try a little of many flavors. Loved the key lime, the lemon and the ginger cannoli - not like real cannoli cream and didn't really get any ricotta flavor but creamy and yummy anyway so I'll give it a pass on the authenticity factor. Maybe they shouldn't call it "cannoli" at all but who cares. Gluten free didn't matter to us either and as it turns out, it definitely didn't matter to the taste. Holy Donut makes some damned good donuts.

amazing delish and a real Portland treat because did you know Maine is the #2 US exporter of potatoes? the bakery embraces this and uses partly potato flour... at first I was wearly, but it works!

Wow! Two gluten free locations in a day. This one has mashed potato donuts, some with rice flower. If you are craving a gluten free donut, these are really good. Did not try the coffee, sorry. Portland is a great food destination.

Stopped in because we were intrigued by them using potatoes. After we had one. We went back in to order a dozen more. Awesome.
