A third location of Doughnut Dollies opens this spring at the corner of Virginia and North Highland avenues. The Marietta-based doughnut shop, owned by chef Anna Gatti and Chris Gatti, replaces Dtox Juice in Virginia-Highland.
Doughnut Dollies first opened in 2015 along Cherokee Street in Marietta, followed by an in-town location on Howell Mill Road on the edge of Atlanta’s Channing Valley neighborhood two years ago. The name references a group of Red Cross volunteers who delivered coffee and doughnuts to U.S. soldiers during World War II.
“This [Virginia-Highland] location will have a unique interior design and offer our full line of seasonally changing doughnuts and a full coffee and espresso program,” Chris Gatti tells Eater. Like the Howell Mill location, the Virginia-Highland shop should include a few seats at a bar, with seating on the sidewalk. The shop could open in May.
Doughnut Dollies offers over two dozen classic and seasonal yeast and cake doughnut flavors baked fresh daily, like the Cereal Bowl topped with cereal milk frosting or the Sweet Jane, a 24-hour brioche stuffed with vanilla pastry cream. Gluten free and alphabet letter doughnuts are also available. Both shops serve Athens-based Jittery Joe’s coffee.
