Union Square Donuts Is Opening a Retail Shop in Somerville

It looks like a new donut shop is on its way to one of the busiest sections of Somerville.

Eater Boston is reporting that a new project from the Culinary Cruisers team called Union Square Donuts is looking to expand into a retail shop on Somerville Avenue at some point. (Culinary Cruisers also sells kombucha and other items from their bicycle food carts.) The folks behind the project debuted their handmade gourmet donuts at the Local is for Lovers holiday market at Somerville's Armory on Highland Avenue on December 2, and will be at the Eat Boutique Holiday Market at the Artist for Humanity EpiCenter on 2nd Street in South Boston on December 9.

There is no word on when the Union Square Donuts retail shop might be opening, so keep checking back for updates.

[February 5, 2013 update: The Boston Magazine Chowder blog states that Union Square Donuts is opening on Valentine's Day (Thursday, February 14) and that its hours will be 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM Thursday through Sunday.]

[February 13, 2013 update: Eater Boston has confirmed that Union Square Donuts is now open.]

The address for this new donut shop in Somerville is: Union Square Donuts, 201 Somerville Avenue, Somerville, MA, 02143. Their Twitter page is at and the website for Culinary Cruisers is at
