The Special Ingredient in These Portland-Area Donuts Is So Maine

Portland, Maine, has become a hub for visiting foodies from around the country and the world. But no matter what kinds of cuisine you enjoy, don’t miss the chance to grab a donut with an extra special taste of Maine.

The Holy Donut in Portland and Scarborough crafts their donuts by hand with a creative ingredient: Maine potatoes. You’ll find the donuts’ rich, moist texture absolutely irresistible regardless of which of their many flavors you choose to try.

Pick up a Maine potato donut or two and have a relaxing breakfast picnic along the beach at Pine Point or watch the ships enter Portland Harbor from the Eastern Promenade. Or pick one up for the drive home!

Whether you’re in the mood for maple, dark chocolate sea salt, or lemon – or if you want to go full Maine and try an Allen’s Coffee Brandy donut – a visit to the Holy Donut is sure to become a tradition on all of your trips to Maine.
