Blackbird Doughnuts Is Opening in Boston's Beacon Hill/West End Area

A growing local group of gourmet doughnut shops is expanding once again, with a new one coming to a busy section of Boston.

According to a licensing board hearing page within the city's website, Blackbird Doughnuts is planning to open on Cambridge Street where Beacon Hill and the West End meet (and adjacent to the Charles River Plaza). If it gets approval to open, the new shop would join others in the South End and Fenway along with locations in Allston-Brighton, Harvard University's Smith Campus Center in Cambridge, and Newton Centre. (The people behind Blackbird Doughnuts also run The Gallows, Banyan Bar & Refuge, and Sally's Sandwiches, all of which are in the South End.)

The address for the new location of Blackbird Doughnuts is 175 Cambridge Street, Boston, MA, 02114. The website for all locations can be found at

[November 9 update: A Facebook post from the place indicates that the new location of Blackbird Doughnuts on Cambridge Street is now open.]
