Doughnuts by Design was started out of our love for doughnuts and creativity - and we brought it to one of our favorite places on earth: Cavendish, PEI!  

We are PEI’s first Designer Doughnut shop, founded out of a combined interest of family members who had their eye on the doughnut business.   Together we created Doughnuts by Design, bringing a HOLE new Doughnut experience to PEI!

Moyna, from Samuels Coffee House, was inspirational in getting the Dough rolling so to speak!  We played with concepts, ate a lot of Doughnuts and finally came up with our unique Doughnut Shop, which opened in the summer of 2017 and is now owned and operated by Kip.

Family secrets from our late Aunt Mary were used, a pinch of this and pinch of that to make the perfect doughnut blend. Kip was on site daily creating and perfecting the dough and interacting with doughnut lovers to ensure a fun doughnut experience.  Everyone has a doughnut memory and our goal was to bring those memories back with a new twist, a sprinkle of fun and a dash of creativity.  

Designer Doughnuts are made fresh every morning using some classic island toppings and flavours including fresh lavender from the Picnic Girl, local beer from upstreet brewing, Espresso from Samuel’s Coffee and farm fresh bacon from Island Taylor Meats just to name a few.  Keeping it local and supporting our fellow businesses is what its all about.  

Now in our 2nd year Doughnuts by Design has added a couple of new features to the menu.  Kids can now decorate their own doughnut and Kips has created mini designer Doughnuts on a stick – for those on the go!  

If a full size doughnut is not you dough, we also make old-fashioned minis fresh to order and top them off with an array of toppings.     

At Doughnuts by Design we are committed to making great doughnuts but also great memories!  We love seeing the happy faces of children and adults alike when they spot their favorite Doughnut.   Stop by our shop this summer to experience the best tasting doughnuts on the island - and while you're there, don't forget to take a photo with our famous doughnut sign and tag us on social media! 

Come Share the Dough!
