Daniel’s Donuts expands to Ballarat, opening its fourth store in regional Victoria

Does it live up to the hype? You betcha.

Ever since arriving in Springvale back in 2016, Donut lovers have been going gangbusters about the doughy treats from Daniel’s Donuts.

A one-stop shop for delicious doughy treats with familiar combinations and surprising twists, the beloved Melbourne-based chain has slowly been growing its empire, opening a bunch of outposts across Melbourne before soon dipping its toes in regional Victoria with stores in the Geelong region.

Arriving in Portarlington in 2018, the chain then went onto open a Daniel’s Donuts’ Drive-Thru in Belmont in 2020 and then another outpost in Wallington earlier this year

Located 620 Creswick Road in Soldiers Hill, Ballarat and surrounding residents can now get their hands on these delicious treats without spending too much coin on precious fuel, with many often making the trip to Geelong for a doughy treat.

Found inside the Ampol at Soldiers Hill, next to Carl’s Jr. Australia and opposite the Ballarat Showgrounds, the bite-sized outpost has everything you know and love about Daniel’s Donuts with donut lovers able to go wild and select any donut their heart desires, customising their own assorted packs – from the classics such as Nutella, and Fresh Jam and Cream, or creations like the Cookies and Cream, Snickers Custard, and Passionfruit Cheesecake. Whether you want just one sole donut or you want a 12 pack of assorted creams, you get to choose the flavours you love.

Alongside the donuts you’ll also be able to purchase milkshakes and hot pies direct from the storefront. Daniel’s pies tick all the boxes. Flaky pastry, tick. Premium ingredients, tick. Rich filling hot enough to burn through your palate if you’re not careful, tick. Our pick is their famous NZ style Chunky Steak & Cheese Pie.

The store will be open from 6am to 11pm daily, with news of an official grand opening later in the month.

Next time your tastebuds start to crave something a little more decadent in Ballarat, Daniel’s Donuts is the answer.
