Meet Union Square Donuts — another great option for National Doughnut Day. They’re exactly what you think: donuts in Union Square, out in Somerville. But if you’ve been to see them at Sowa Market or in Dewey Square, or in their shop- you know their donuts can be a pretty exclusive item. Long lines and early sellouts only make them even more tantalizing. They’re huge- and you can see them from the back of the lines. Their unique choices such as “Sea Salt Bourbon Caramel”, “Brown Butter Hazelnut Crunch” and the favorite, “Maple Bacon” keep people coming back for more.

Behind the counter at their new store front (recently they moved a couple stores down to a bigger space) is the team that makes the magic happen. BDCwire got a chance to watch the donuts come to life and witness a true union of Somerville Chefs.
