full donut wall at hifi donuts in portland maine
donut wall and espresso bar at hifi donuts portland maine

Made from scratch old world style donuts. Sustainable coffee & espresso. Indulgent breakfast & lunch menu. Locally sourced & made from scratch daily.

Conveniently located downtown in Portland, ME!

To call this place awesome, is an understatement. Yes, their donuts are absolutely fantastic (some of the best and most creative flavors). But EVERYTHING is amazing here, from the coffee to the donuts and even their sandwiches….simply one of the best places in Portland. Or probably anywhere else, for that matter.

A Note From The Owners

In order to truly emulate an old world style donut & flavor that takes on the taste of your great grandmothers’ recipe- our donuts are not vegetarian or vegan friendly. It is important to us that we respect others dietary needs and preferences, which is why we intend to always be transparent about our menu. We have a broad menu with options for everyone- however when it comes to our donuts it is at the core of who we are and our businesses mission to not alter the original donut style and recipe in any way, shape, or form. The results of this are classic, one of a kind, and indulgent old world deep fried treats. We appreciate & welcome everyone to visit us and will always help guide you through our menu when necessary!

This donut alone was enough to make me want to... never leave Portland, but it was the matched customer service that truly won my heart. I felt so welcomed in here, and please keep in mind that I ran in here two minutes before they closed. The cashier was so patient with me, and I was able to grab some cute souvenirs to take home including some ADORABLE donut keychains! When I’m back in Portland, this place will without a doubt be on my list to revisit.read more

Real solid place. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could.... We bought seven donuts a shirt and a cappuccino. The donuts were all real good, the coffee was pretty good, and the shirt is awesome. I think we would have really liked the sandwiches had we a chance to try themread more

I am sort of a donut connoisseur. My favorite... donuts are often raised and covered or filled with something sweet. My family and I were really excited to try Portland’s famous donut shop. But these didn’t meet our expectations at all. Huge props for the flavor creations - no one is making such interesting flavors. But the baking is not great. The donuts at almost all cake donuts - and barely better than the consistency of a store-bought Entenmans donut. They are dense, a bit greasy and shriveled up. They can't even compare to a farm made cider donut which we get a lot around here at the local orchards. We did enjoy a raised honey donut - but it had a very noticeable yeast flavor which was distracting. It almost tasted sour. A honey dip is the “white bread” of any donut shop and this place didn’t deliver. Next time we’ll try Holy Donut!read more

Kudos for serving the first honey dipped donut... that actually tasted like honey!!! We got an array of yeast raised donuts and a few interesting cake. Frankly, skip the cakes. The yeast raised donuts were light, airy and tasty! Will definitely be back for more swirly things!!read more

My daughter and I went here on a whim and we... thought the variety of flavors was really interesting. The menu is conveniently divided by the donut base type - cake, creuller, etc. Coffee was decent but could be hotter. Lines are long so come prepared to wait outside. It’s a small space! Love the decor! From my daughter: “The donuts were delicious!!”read more

I LOVE cruller donuts and this place has pretty... much all crullers with amazing flavors?! Sign me up.  I got the tip that if you go before noon, there's still a good selection of donuts left. I went earlier and received a plain one and it was BOMB. I will go here every time I'm in Portland.read more

Thank God for this place and their amazing drip... coffee! There are so many cute coffee and donut places in Portland but Hifi is definitely our go-to for a regular brew. Love the donuts as well but the coffee is truly the best I've ever had.read more

When I walked into this donut shop after seeing... photos I immediately thought the price was steep compared to what I’m used to. But the donuts looked so good that I decided quickly to order a whole dozen anyway. The plan was to eat a couple and then to bring them home to our family. But then it turned out that they were too good to share. We had to try them all. Best money that I spent in Portland hands down. I’ve never reviewed a business before, but this company needs to be known about. Food is our career, our lives, and our passion. Thank you so much for a food memory that I’ll think about forever.read more

Fantastic donuts in the heart of downtown... Portland, Maine. French toast crueller was amazing - super fluffy and great flavor. The cherry jubilee was good, super sweet, with surprise (to me) caramel(?) in the middle. Definitely worth it. Note: they fry the donuts in lard, which wasn't great for my vegetarian wife.read more

Definitely don’t see the hype around this place.... Donuts were very doughy and too sweet. Coffee was also so so bad. I got a mocha iced coffee and it tasted like they put dirt in the bottom of my cup. Won’t be returning!read more

HiFi is GREAT. I actually (don't shoot me!) think... they're better than the Holy Donut. Their crullers are fluffy and moist and incredible, like clouds, and their cake donuts are to die for, amazing flavors with lots of depth other than just simple, straight sweetness. They will have a line on the weekends so either get there early or arrive on a weekday!read more

Best donuts in Portland!! But since everyone is... already attesting that, I'll draw your attention to their Cyprian Hifi. Hello? A GRILL HALLOUMI SANDWICH?! I don't know if this exists anywhere else in the city, so if you're a vegetarian or can appreciate a delicious cheese I would put this on your must-try list.read more

I’ve been there a few times. I enjoyed my... interactions with the staff, the variety of flavors. My favorite one was one of the classics - cinnamon- sugar but better than any other cinnamon-sugar I’ve ever tried in my life! Highly recommend it!read more

Excellent location, clean, well lit and friendly... staff. Wish I would have tried more food. I’m only giving four stars because the donuts were very thin like Funyuns and we’re expensive for their size. I do keep in mind a business has to make profit. The flavor was great though, would definitely return to try more just hopefully a little bigger!read more

Amazing doughnuts! Way better than the other... local place in Portland. Their raised doughnuts melt in your mouth and have fantastic flavor. The cake doughnuts aren't heavy at all and have wonderful rich flavor. There were so many varieties it was hard to choose what we wanted. The churro wasn't my favorite, it has a good cinnamon flavor, but wasn't there for me. The rolled bun tasted like a cinnamon roll. The chocolate cake doughnuts were like cake and so so good. My favorite by far was the coconut though. The flake was perfect and omg so good. I didn't even share it. My partners favorite was the stay puft. I also loved the hefeweizen.read more

Yummy. Amazing and yummy! These are the words my... kids used to describe HiFi Donuts. The breakfast sandwich, coffee, and donuts were all of the above. I had the s’mores cruller. It was everything I hoped it would be and makes one wonder why a person would go anywhere else for a donut. My wife had the chocolate sea salt hibiscus which had a chocolate ganache with a fruity hibiscus swirl and rose sea salt. The breakfast sandwich was loaded with bacon and egg and was on point and steamy hot. We were going to branch out and try something else our final morning in Portland but why when we’ve found darn near perfection. The service was fantastic too!read more
