 Holy Donut - velyvieji pusryciai Kaune - brunch in Kaunas

Holy Donut
Valančiaus str. 19, Kaunas

Holy Donut is a restaurant-bakery that was one of the first in both Kaunas and Vilnius to promote brunch culture and invite guests to enjoy it not only on weekends but also on weekdays.

The first location with this name opened its doors almost a decade ago. Initially, visitors loved it for the donuts, later for bagels, and now the name Holy Donut is known precisely for its extensive daily breakfast menu, speciality coffees, and cocktails.

Whether on weekends or weekdays, guests are welcome here to enjoy classic brunch options: Eggs Benedict, omelettes, American pancakes, cottage cheese pancakes, and porridge. Additionally, Holy Donut treats diners to its own creations, such as Buddha Bowl, Smoothie Bowl, Falafel salads, and other dishes that cater even to vegetarians and vegans. Everything, from donuts to bagels, brioches, buns, or croissants, is baked on-site, adding another layer of uniqueness to this restaurant-bakery. By the way, the Holy Donut on Valančiaus Street also explores a new concept: there, guests can find a wide selection of homemade cakes.

An all-day brunch menu, attention to various dietary needs, unique cocktails, vinyl records playing on weekends, and a pet-friendly environment – Holy Donut awaits guests not only at Valančiaus str. 19 but also at Vilniaus str. 37 and Vytauto ave. 24.

Holy Donut recommends: "Cottage cheese pancakes, New Orleans Benedicts, and the 'Smaguris' donut are among the most popular choices at Holy Donut. Nevertheless, we sincerely recommend trying our home-baked bagels, such as the Big Daddy, or trying out falafel salads with oranges, of which we are very proud."
