As promised, Saugus institution Kane's Donuts is opening its first-ever downtown Boston outpost this week at International Place (90 Oliver St.) In fact, it opens right this very second —  6 a.m. on Wednesday, March 18, reports the Globe. The new location, which measures 700 square feet, is named Kane's Handcrafted Donuts, and those handcrafted doughnuts go from $2.50 to $3.50 each (comparable to "fancy" offerings like those at Union Square Donuts, notes the Globe). This is an increase from the Saugus prices, and a press release promises that the new location is taking things to a "higher level" with "all-natural, high-quality ingredients that are sourced locally (when possible)."

New to the menu is the world's next hybrid pastry-ish creation: the dowich, which combines a doughnut with a sandwich (sort of). The bread is made from the brioche-based doughnut dough, and fillings include lobster salad and braised beef, according to the Globe. The new website for the Kane's Boston location describes the dowich as a "fluffy stuffed donut that's a tasty lunch sandwich."

Also available: "hubcap-sized" coffee cakes and kronuts, according to a press release. (The kronuts are available only on Fridays, Saturdays, and by special order — and if you have a New York driver's license, you get one free.)

Kane's first opened in 1955 and carries a large variety of doughnuts, as well as cupcakes, muffins, pies, and more. The Boston location is open 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, and weekend hours have not yet been determined. Free delivery is available in the Financial District, as well as curbside pick-up for orders placed by phone.
