Eastsiders, prepare to worship the spongy dessert pastry that's swiftly taking over the city. Soon, Oxford Street will have its own home for handmade doughy goodness, as this Facebook page has let slip. Yes, Donut Boyz is coming to Bulimba.

That'll make the third Brisbane store for the fast-growing chain, following West End and Paddington. It also means that enjoying one of the Boyz's similarly expanding array of flavours — pineapple curd with lemon frosting and toasted coconut, or strawberry and white chocolate ganache, anyone? — will be doable in three parts of the city.

This is just the latest development in what is fast becoming a full-blown, area-wide doughnut obsession. Since June, mobile eatery-turned-permanent store Doughnut Bar has helped fill the CBD's need for glazed goodness, while just this week, Gramercy Coffee popped up in the mall to get in on the action. And, of course, there's Doughnut Time in the Valley — plus wherever their food truck may roam to.

Perhaps the Brisbane just needs to take a leaf out of Springfield's book — yes, The Simpsons' Springfield — and build a massive monument to our current favourite sweet. If we can have giant letters spelling out the city's name, then surely we can have this?

Find Donut Boyz on Oxford Street, Bulimba in the near future — and keep an eye on their Facebook page for more updates.
