Downtown donut shop closes its doors — for now

Another business along Boise’s 8th St. closed up shop – but owners say they’ll be back soon.

Donut Daze closed early this week – just a year after it first opened in the Main + Marketplace development.

Formerly known as Capital Terrace, Hawkins Co. purchased the building from its original owners in 2017. Since then it launched an ambitious exterior and interior remodel project. Several local businesses closed in the building, including Piper Pub, Shige, Artisan Optics – and just last month – Bru.

“Fortunately we will return to this location as a new concept in approximately one month’s time,” the owners wrote on a sign posted on the door. “When we do reopen you will once again be able to enjoy our delicious donuts and fried chicken, along with with a handful of new choices and a completely new vibe.”

Both Donut Daze and Bru have been surrounded by construction activity in recent weeks as Hawkins works to add a new stairwell to the building. Bru’s owners claimed the business was forced to close due to the construction.

Donut Daze said its product is available down the street at Dawson Taylor while it is closed. Attempts to reach the owners were not successful.
