Our doughnut journey….

When Arnold Bridges and Dave & Lucy Christie purchased the business in 1950, they probably didn’t expect it would be what it has become today – a Melbourne icon.

Operating from the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne since 1950, our hot jam doughnuts are served to thousands of customers every week from our 1950’s style bus.

With an unchanged recipe since we started, our dough is made fresh the day before trade and transported to the market ready for production right before your eyes. Watch our staff as they roll out, cut out and cook these sugary beauties ready for your consumption.

With a loyal following of generations of market customers we also see many tourists and interstate regulars visit us for their ‘fix’!

You can find us in Queen Street at the top end of “I” shed in the Queen Victoria Market every market day which is Tuesday, and Thursday through Sunday. We start early, and work until market close or until Sold Out, whichever occurs first.
