Union Square Donuts to Open in Brookline
One of the most popular donut shops in the Boston area is going to be opening a brand new store, taking over the space where an iconic fish market currently resides.
The Brookline Tab is reporting that Union Square Donuts in Somerville is planning to open on Harvard Street in Brookline, moving into the Wulf's Fish Market space. (Wulf's is closing its retail shop on May 13 after 90 years in business and shifting operations to the Boston Fish Pier, where it will focus on its wholesale business.) The article says that the new shop will have seating for 13 and proposed hours of 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM, and if all goes as planned, it will take over the space on June 1 and hopefully open in the fall. [Ed note: This last bit of information was corrected on April 26.]
Other locations of Union Square Donuts can be found at the Boston Public Market and in Cambridge's Inman Square, though the latter is a satellite location that may or may not be temporary, depending on the success of the place.
The address for this upcoming donut shop in Brookline is: Union Square Donuts, 409 Harvard Street, Brookline, MA, 02446. Its website can be found at http://unionsquaredonuts.com/
[August 17 update: A post within the Craigslist site indicates that Union Square Donuts is still planning to open this fall, and that it is now looking to hire a shop manager.]
