B. Doughnut is coming back to Baltimore—but only for weekends.

The pastry purveyor that left its space behind in Hampden will be holding pop-ups at Mt. Vernon Marketplace on Saturdays and Sundays starting this weekend, according to a post on the business’ Facebook page from earlier this week. The events will run from 11 a.m. until they sell out.

B. Doughnut only occupied the elevated storefront at 3528 Chestnut Avenue for just over a year, from October 2015 through November 2016, before owners Brian and Pin Chanthapanya uprooted for downtown Leesburg, Va. Despite a short-lived start in Baltimore, they gained a loyal following (in no small part for their everything bagel doughnut variety), oftentimes selling out within hours of opening.

Their old space has retained its purpose of dishing out doughnuts. Center Cut Doughnuts moved in shortly afterward, opening in January 2017, only to shut down 10 months later. Full Circle Artisan Palace, another doughnut maker, has since taken over.

Neither Brian nor Pin Chanthapanya have responded to a request for comment. Beyond the Leesburg store, their website says they sell their pastries at D.C.’s Union Market and five other locations around Northern Virginia, and are planning to expand to La Plata, Alexandria and Arlington this spring.

As for the pop-up series at Mt. Vernon Marketplace, the owners wrote on Facebook, “Let this be a new beginning.”
