General Porpoise Doughnuts

Wholesome doughnuts filled with handmade curds, custards, creams, and jams, made with farm-fresh eggs, and paired with remarkable coffees.

Doughnuts at General Porpoise are made with fresh eggs from La Ferme des Anes chickens and are filled with seasonal jams, jellies, curds, custards, and creams. Expect classic flavors like vanilla custard or berries and cream, as well as new favorites, like peanut butter and jelly, roasted lemon curd, apple butter, and chocolate marshmallow.

In addition to doughnuts, General Porpoise serves top quality coffees from multiple rotating roasters. Espresso, pour over, drip, and draft cold brew are all available. Small batch draft sodas, draft sparkling iced tea, and of course, bubbly are served as well.

General Porpoise is a fun place to enjoy unique doughnuts and remarkable coffees.

Starting today until the 28th, come in and have a Cocktail for a Cause! We'll be donating $1 to ACLU Nationwide from every specialty drink we pour at General Porpoise and all the other Sea Creatures spots: The Walrus and the Carpenter, Barnacle, The Whale Wins, Bateau, and Bar Melusine. Cheers!

We hope everyone had a splendid Valentine's Day!

We've got some insanely delicious Valentine's Day treats for you and your sweetie(s): white chocolate rose, peanut butter cup, and the return of the much-requested passionfruit curd. Yes, that's a nautical conversation heart, and yes, you can pre-order these suckers on our website ( They will be available this Sunday through Tuesday!
