After nearly two years of waiting, a doughnut and bagel shop will finally open its doors in Somerville. Davis Square Hand Crafted Donuts & Bagels grandly opens on Thursday, August 3 and will start slinging doughy treats from the 377 Summer St. space bright and early.
It’s been a long road to this point: The original plan for the doughnut and bagel shop first surfaced in August 2015. Kyriakos Kouzoukas, the owner of Opa Greek Yeeros around the corner on Highland Avenue, was originally involved in developing the concept, but last summer, it seemed as though plans would not move forward. However, earlier this year, George Dardonis took ownership of the shop and has spent the last several months preparing the menu and the space for opening.
The treats at Davis Square Donuts & Bagels will be scratch-made, including old-fashioned doughnuts like glazed and chocolate alongside Nutella-stuffed doughnuts, maple bacon, Oreo, peanut butter and jelly, and other versions, Dardonis previously told Eater. There will be 15 different bagel options, including jalapeño cheddar, cinnamon raisin, blueberry, plain, and everything, and bagel sandwiches will be made to order. The bagels are New York-style and will be boiled before baking. For beverages, the shop will serve Peet’s coffee and tea.
Davis Square Donuts & Bagels will have indoor and patio seating with free wifi. Inside, the shop has a second level of seating and a mural of the City of Somerville, painted by local artist Crystal René Burney. The shop opens at 5:30 a.m. on August 3.
