Back Door Donuts, the beloved purveyor of late night treats on Martha’s Vineyard, is bringing the sweetness to Boston this spring.


I’m not a Martha’s Vineyard guy. I grew up middle class on the North Shore. Summer vacations for me were–and continue to be–to the beaches of Maine and the mountains of New Hampshire. Martha’s Vineyard might as well be in Europe as far as I’m concerned. Although the lineup for Beach Road Weekend this year looks killer. All of that to say, I’ve not experienced first hand the sweet delight of a Back Door donut. So I had to to a bit of research.


I surfed over to the Back Door Donuts website to see what all the fuss is about. A few clicks in, and I’m staring down the barrel of the ooiest, gooiest apple fritter I’ve seen since…well, since I last gobbled up an apple fritter. Which would be last summer at Congdon’s Donuts in Wells Beach, ME. You see, I’m a sucker for an apple fritter. And if you don’t have one, I’ll happily settle for a blueberry fritter. Or even a maple bacon fritter, if you can scare one of those up.


Back Door Donuts from Martha’s Vineyard is Popping Up in Boston

Back Door Donuts is bringing their fritters and a bunch of other baked goodies to Boston this month, just in time for Opening Day at Fenway Park. Starting on March 15, they’ll be slinging sweets out the back door of Loretta’s Last Call. So in keeping with the “Donuts After Dark” tradition that both Vineyard visitors and natives have been enjoying for years, we’ll be able to enjoy donuts after dark in Boston. Which means donuts after Sox games. Or shows at the House of Blues. Or the MGM Music Hall.
