An Alabama-based doughnut and burger shop is coming to downtown Charleston. Hero Doughnuts & Buns, which founder Will Drake started as a pop-up business at farmer's markets, is scheduled to open at 145 Calhoun Street (formerly home to Panera Bread) in the new year.
Hero Doughnuts & Buns serves sandwiches, burgers, salads, and, of course, doughnuts. Customers can expect doughnut toppings like Fruity Pebbles, pistachio glaze, maple sea salt, and more. Sandwich options include egg & cheese, fried pork chop, chicken salad, burgers, and more. You can see a menu sample here.
The Holy City location will be Hero's third, joining the original eatery in Birmingham and the second in Atlanta. An official opening date has not been announced yet.
