a maple bacon concoction, but having only recently had breakfast when we visited, I decided to give one of their daily specials a try: cannoli cream donut. No regrets to be had. They also offer tastes of random donuts at the counter, so you can test some things out before buying. They had a delicious chocolate salted caramel (which my friend wound up getting) and another vanilla one that was equally tasty. Service is friendly and quick. The shop is small, but cozy. They have a few seats, but I imaging during busy hours they fill up quickly. They only sell until they run out and then they close up for the day, so get their early if you're hoping for a try.

I always knew donuts were holy but now you can be sure for yourself. Maine Potato Donuts made in Portland. As part of your eating tour of Portland you need to add this on your itinerary. Yum!!!

Best. Donut. Ever. I'm not usually a donut person, but The Holy Donut has a bunch of unique flavors, and their donuts are made with potato flakes. Not potato flour; potato flakes. Gives them a super moist but cakey texture that melts in your mouth.

You're on vacation so go have some of the most creative potato donuts in the country. Dark chocolate sea salt is our favorite.

The Holy Donut makes unique donuts made from potato flour! They have two locations, one is in Old Port, which gets much busier. Come to this one and be sure to order the Maple Bacon! The savory cheddar bacon one was my favorite though! These donuts are not to be missed while in Portland.

These donuts are delicious, especially the maple bacon and mojito ones. They're freshly made every day!

The absolute best donuts you'll ever eat. Try the chocolate sea salt and sample the many other exotic Maine made flavors.

This place is truly unique in terms of the donuts that they sell, and you'll be doing yourself a disservice if you're in Portland and don't go here. The sweet potato donut is terrific. Might have to look into seeing if they ship donuts......
