I love a good donut as much as the next person, but I don’t know if I’ve ever felt as strongly about a donut before I came to The Holy Donut. I eagerly went just after opening, anticipating long lines and sell-outs, but I easily...More

I heard about this place on The Phantom Gourmet television show in Boston. The donuts have a wonderfully smooth texture, that come from including potato flour. We tried a chocolate and an apple cider. They were both delicious. I will definitely be back next time...More

This place is definitely worth the long lines. Delicious warm potato donuts in many interesting flavors. The lattes are pretty good as well.

Best chocolate doughnut I have ever had. Crispy yet tender, not too sticky, not too sweet. Perfection.

They are so unique in their flavor and texture. Every visit is a delicious experience. Breaskfast, lunch, or dessert, these are a delicious treat. They have two store locations in Portland, but I also love that you can find them at Whole Foods in Portland.

The donuts here are absolutely incredible (especially the chocolate sea salt!) They had amazing coffee to go with it - definitely the best start to our day :) ... two days in a row!

These are unlike any other donut I've had. They are not overly sweet, but are good for a snack, a dessert, with tea, or other companion foods (think milk). Locally owned and made, they are worth many visits.

Let me google that for you. No. And I am glad they don't because although they were great the second day, they were fantastic the first day. You'd want the best product, but who knows, if you call them, maybe you can... More

I'm afraid I don't know there was nothing advertising that but they might! I'm sure they have a webpage or Twitter you could ask! Sorry
