Doughnut Department are so much more than handmade dreaminess! This team uses as much ethically sourced, organic produce as they can from small regional companies who are just as passionate as they are. So you can feel good knowing that when you eat these doughnuts, you’re supporting a whole bunch of Australian based, family owned businesses.

Their doughnuts are treated with love from start to finish, made from scratch, yeast raised, table cut by hand, then fried in their own hand-made doughnut fryer in store daily.

But the space is more than just a doughnut shop & café. Out the back is home & HQ to Fashfest, Haus Models, Haus of Artists and soon to be an open creative space for digitally based creatives.

Add them to your bucket list.

“Good Coffee”

The coffee was good but in a small cup. The breakfast of scrambled eggs was good too, but I could have presented it better.
