Donut Monster Opens in Third Ward
Shop selling specialty donuts opens first location in Milwaukee.
Looking for a new place in the Historic Third Ward to grab a sweet treat? Donut worry.
Donut Monster, located at 316 N. Milwaukee St., held a grand opening Thursday, Aug. 19th, after a soft opening held during two days in late July.
This is the second brick-and-mortar location for Donut Monster, the first being 5169 N. Elkhart Ave. in Whitefish Bay. The shop also sells at farmers markets in Shorewood and Wauwatosa.
Donut Monster’s new location used to hold another donut shop: Holey Moley Coffee + Doughnuts. Holey Moley closed its doors in February to focus on its full-service restaurants and some expansion projects, according to a statement on its website.
Donut Monster is open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The owners also have plans to open a pizza shop in the same location, which will open after Donut Monster closes in the afternoon. It will be called Brute Pizza and it will specialize in sourdough pizzas. It will be open later in the day. Brute pizza was originally a pop-up restaurant, and the location in the Third Ward will be its first brick-and-mortar site. Jackie Woods said that Brute Pizza will open soon.
