After three-plus years of serving vegan doughnuts from 102 St. Mark's Place, Dun-Well is closing its East Village outpost this coming Sunday (Feb. 16).
The storefront recently arrived on the rental market, and we knew something was up — a move or a closure.
Dun-Well made the announcement on Instagram yesterday:
In order to focus upon new endeavors at our flagship Brooklyn location and to expand our wholesale operations, we have decided to close our St. Mark's location this month. This is a bittersweet decision as we have loved being part of the St. Mark's community over the past few years. We hope you’ll continue to support us as we move into our next chapter!
Dun-Well can now be found in almost 20 NYC locations including several Whole Foods Markets and cafes throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens and we plan to expand our reach to bring our doughnuts to an even larger community.
Christopher Hollowell and Dan Dunbar opened the first Dun-Well in East Williamsburg in 2011. They debuted on St. Mark's between Avenue A and First Avenue in July 2016, shuttling in fresh doughnuts daily from their Montrose Avenue HQ.
Given the outpouring over the closing announcement on Instagram, Dun-Well will be missed on St. Mark's Place.
