Wrecking Ball Donuts

We’re kicking off the most Instagrammable venues in Dundee with Wrecking Ball Donuts on Exchange Street.

That’s not forgetting the beautiful donuts you’ll be able to snap pictures of.

They are freshly baked and on display in a glass counter for customers to salivate over and take pictures of.

If that hasn’t convinced you, the taste of their ring donuts or chocolate oblivion filled donut definitely will.
