Next month, a brand new wacky doughnut shop called Urban Donut will bring Dallas its first DIY, build-your-own doughnut shop.

The forthcoming sweet shop is set to open its doors at 2805 Allen Street in the coming weeks, reports CultureMap, bringing the neighborhood its first late-night doughnut stop. Urban Donuts is a project from Jim Huntley, who was one-half of the team behind Arlington’s Crunch Donut Factory, where similarly creative pastries are on offer 24 hours a day.

Pastry enthusiasts will be able to design their own doughnuts from scratch, choosing their shape (a classic yeast doughnut, long john, or cake), fillings, and more toppings, including fruit, candy, and ice cream. A selection of rotating flavors will be available in the case for those experiencing decision paralysis when presented with all those flavor options.

The Dallas shop won’t be open 24/7, but will keep the doors open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights to help the Uptown drinking crowd soak up all the booze that is served in the neighborhood’s myriad bars. When it does open, Urban Donut will join Avanti and Crushcraft Thai Street Eats as one of the neighborhood’s few late-night dining options.

Urban Donut is expected to make its Uptown debut in July.
