The doughnut scene in Watertown just got a bit sweeter. Blackbird Doughnuts has spread its wings and opened a new shop in Arsenal Yards, according to the Boston Restaurant Talk. This latest location joins a flock of others throughout the Boston area, including spots in South End, Beacon Hill, and Harvard Square, signaling a steady expansion for the purveyor of gourmet treats.

Not only does Blackbird Doughnuts craft their indulgent delights from scratch daily, beginning at the ungodly hour of 3 a.m., but they also cater to allergy concerns. "We take allergies seriously. Please feel free to reach out if you have any allergy concerns," reads a statement on the Blackbird Doughnuts website. With no trace of traif or nuts, except for the occasional coconut or sesame, they're committed to serving up an array of doughnuts that change monthly, plus a special doughnut cake.

But for those who can't make it to the Bay State, fret not. Blackbird has an offer that's hard to resist. They deliver their cake-style doughnuts nationwide, because why should geography get in the way of a good pastry? It’s noteworthy, however, that the yeast-raised variety doesn’t make the shipping cut. Still, a nationwide spread of their sugary confections shows they're not just nesting locally; they're reaching doughnut lovers from coast to coast.

Behind the scenes of these artisanal treats is The Gallows Group, a proudly woman-owned and inclusive company, as highlighted on the Blackbird Doughnuts website. This detail adds a layer of community-centric ethos to their brand, reinforcing the company’s dedication not just to quality doughnuts but to a set of values that resonate within the communities they serve.
