Popular Marietta doughnut shop Doughnut Dollies has opened its first ITP location.
The shop’s second location, which was originally set to open in January of this year, opened this morning at 1963 Howell Mill Road. Grand opening festivities will run through 2 p.m. today while supplies last.
The new location offers a selection of doughnuts as well as a small seating area and Athens’ Jittery Joe draft coffee options, as well as a walk-up window to pick up pre-ordered doughnuts.
Chris and Anna Gatti opened the original location in the downstairs space of their Canvas Cafe & Bakery in Marietta in 2015.
The couple met while they were both in school at the Culinary Institute of America.
“Since opening Doughnut Dollies in 2015, Chris and I have had so much fun - we couldn’t be more excited to introduce Atlanta’s West Midtown to the delicious and ever-changing doughnuts we’ve become known for,” Gatti said in a press release.
The doughnut shop is named for the Red Cross volunteers who delivered doughnuts and coffee to U.S. soldiers as far back as World War II.
Doughnut Dollies is known for its eclectic selection of flavors and toppings including a chocolate Old Fashioned doughnut with fresh orange and fennel pollen and nectarine and rosemary, as well as a #YOLO “doughnut of the moment”, Brown Butter Peach Shortcake, Buttered Popcorn, Almond Rose, and the original Dollie. The shop also makes seasonal items such as holiday pie doughnuts, Christmas cake doughnuts and a Valentine’s Day box featuring doughnuts in an array of floral flavors.
A mural by Lenia and Ernesto Castro can be seen on the building’s exterior. Guests will be able to enjoy the 625 square-feet of cafe space including a dozen indoor seats.
Doughnut Dollies new location will be open from 7 a.m. until doughnuts run out daily.
