Daniel's Donuts, a 24-hour doughnut store on Princes Highway in Springvale, has inspired queues, sell-outs, and (probably) tears over its sweet, doughy goods. It's the second venue for the family-run business, after its bakery in Melbourne's west became well-known for churning out thousands of Nutella donuts. The bakery gained media attention in 2015 for the sheer amount it was producing, using around 2400 kilograms of the sweet hazelnut spread each week.
The treats are no less sweet and a little more expanded in variety at the Springvale outpost, and they're now heading northside — the bakery will pop up in Brunswick's Barkly Square for the month of July.
Situated next to Kmart, the pop-up doesn't quite match the Springvale mammoth effort of being open all day, every day — but it comes damn close. It's open from 6am–10pm (or until sold out), so you've got generous time either side of your work day to get there. But we recommend being the early bird, if past reports and reviews of its Springvale store are anything to go by.
Flavour-wise, you can expect Ferrero, raspberry white chocolate, lemon meringue and — of course — the requisite Nutella filled situation. No word yet on whether the infamous durian donut will be available to purchase but fingers crossed, we guess.
