Melbourne is a city that’s obsessed with doughnuts, but even so there’s only a few who turn this humble sweet treat into an art form. Doughboys is one of these artisanal doughnut makers you can find in the CBD.
We’ve been in love with their treats since visiting their Queen Victoria Market location and devastation is an understatement of our feelings when they closed up shop! We were thrilled when they opened up the new city store, their donuts finally having pride of place in a space they deserved.
We grabbed our sweet rings of joy to go, there is a small dining area but the line to order tends to fill up the entire space. We chose a couple of doughnuts from the days selection, an Almond Butter and a Strawberry Creme. What struck us about both was the freshness, the intensity of the flavour and the lightness of the dough. The light crunch of the almond and the creamy icing, as well as the bright, and vibrant fresh strawberry glaze and light cream filling.
Doughboys have really found a place to call their own and now they’ve planted their roots are sure to get bigger and better. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
