Kane’s Donuts, the 60-year-old Saugus-based bakery known for its cult-like following, has officially opened their first handcrafted donut store—Kane’s Handcrafted Donuts—in the International Place building of Boston’s downtown financial district today. Located at 90 Oliver Street, Kane’s Handcrafted Donuts marks the first new Kane’s location since the bakery opened in 1955.

The Boston location will be elevating its already storied baking program by using all-natural, high-quality ingredients that will be locally sourced whenever possible. Kane’s Handcrafted Donuts will offer Kane’s hubcap-sized coffee cakes and signature Kronuts, all hand-stuffed and hand-finished on-site, in view of guests.

For years, Kane’s Donuts has earned national accolades, including being named “Top 10 Donuts In America” by Bon Appetit, one of “America’s Best Donuts” by Travel & Leisure, “The World’s Best Donuts” by Saveur, and “Best of New England” by Yankee.

“You can’t possible have a Kane’s Handcrafted Donut and not smile and be happy. There are no conflicts or frowns over a Kane’s Donut; our donuts are love,” said co-owner and chef Paul Delios via a press release. “Our family has always been amazed at the letters we get from people and the visitors who take a cab or Uber to Saugus because they heard how wonderful and unique our doughnuts are. Moving to Boston makes it easier for all to enjoy what we lovingly make.”
