Hey, what's a pop-up shop? How does it work for you?

A pop-up shop is a retail-focused day when we open our doors and welcome you in. We look forward to these rare dates and hope you will too.

Get a jump on it by following us on social media, and pre-order for pick-up, curbside or delivery on the pop-up day.

It's like a golden ticket--for everyone.

Instead of limiting the customers, we are limited on days that we are open. As always, open until sell-out! 

What Are We Working On?

We are busy filling commercial orders and special events. That's keeping us busy and often very tired! So, we are shifting our retail to pop-up shop only. This means that we are featuring fun, festive YOU-FOCUSED days, but no more regular "office" hours. 

So, follow us on social media to get advance notice of pop-up dates.

And, do you have a favorite corner coffee shop? Independent cafe? Let us know. We want to support YOU and them with our hand-forged donuts through our commercial baking.

Getting Donuts During the Pandemic--How To Guide

 First, thank you for your patronage during the pandemic!

Here are ordering tips and reminders:

  • Masks are required (let's all stay safe!)
  • No more than three customers are allowed in the bakery
  • Please use social distancing if a line forms outside the bakery
  • Pre-order, pre-order, pre-order! We're a small shop. If one of us gets sick we'll likely have to close for an extended time. But we are even more concerned about you, our customers! Please pre-order so that we can minimize person-to-person contact while maintaining high-levels of person-to-donut contact!

To speed the order process:

  • Pre-ordered? Enter and head to the left
  • Pre-orders are preferred and encouraged
  • We give pre-order pick-ups priority
  • Walking-up? Enter and head to the right

Walking up or pre-ordering? Be sure to check our online store to see what we have available any given weekend. We typically post the new menu for the week on Tuesday mid-day.

Each Saturday and Sunday we expect to sell-out, often before noon, so please order ahead to reserve your donuts.

Delivery is available and encouraged too! Check the online store for delivery options and areas.

Coming Soon

We have a number of safety measures in place and are adding more, such as more plexiglass in the front of the bakery to increase safety-for-all.

We expect to add subscription service in the coming weeks. This delivery-based service will open up options for donut-deliver on additional days (not just Saturday & Sunday).

I Will Not Hide

We are experiencing what I hope will be a revolution that will bring much needed change.

As a business owner, I’ve been aware that I’ve needed to stay “apolitical” because of concerns of hurting the livelihood of our shop. I can't stay silent any longer.  Business owners sometimes do, please stop. Speak up, speak out. To stay neutral during times of injustice means the same thing as taking the side of the oppressor.

You've seen me as the woman-owner of a small business who has a permanent sun-kissed skin tone. You know me, you know my daughters who have worked at the shop and you know all our employees. You come because of a love for donuts, a strong cup of coffee and a sense of community. Thank you for coming. I hope you will continue to visit.

FYI--I'm black. I didn't just get back from Florida.

I’ve consciously decided to neglect sharing online that I am a black woman. Because my skin tone is in a range that passes for "white" I have been afforded the privilege of being able to look for an apartment, a house, or go shopping as a "white" woman. I'm not. I'm black.

To be able to hide my blackness is a privilege. I am able to escape many injustices because of the way that I outwardly look. The cruel reality of our society is that it punishes black individuals for being black.

As many of you know, I am sickened by the reckless murder of George Floyd, and all of the events prior that led up to his life being stripped away from him.

George might have stopped at our shop, we might have met. I hope we did. But I don't need to have known him to know that what happened to him was predictable in our system.

That is extremely sad. Please make this change. I don't want my children to live in the same system. Do you?

The inhumane treatment of, and the ingrained belief that, black and brown lives are “less than” is not only a systemic problem, but also the basis of what this country was built on. It is planted into our psyches from the day that we start learning, consciously AND subconsciously.

Each generation born under this flag is either stripped of opportunity or given star treatment based on the color of their skin.

I am tired of living in fear, and I am tired of hiding who I am, my identity, my culture.  I am a black woman, a mother of three and a small business owner.

I am so thankful for the wonderful supporters our shop has, and I am thankful for my brilliant children for championing causes such as Black Lives Matter. These people constantly inspire my belief that change is on the horizon. I’m confident that we will reach a turning point eventually, if not soon.

I will keep marching forward, keep hope alive, and keep making donuts in the aim of spreading at least a kernel of happiness to our community, while also supporting the livelihood of our hardworking staff.

Please, let’s all make this change together. It will not happen any other way.

“The belle of the ball is Mojo Monkey Donuts, St. Paul’s newest shop. It has everything you’d ever want in a donut shop: crullers as light as air, double-chocolate donuts as intensely chocolaty as devil’s food cake, mocha-crème filled donuts full of lush custard and true mocha depth.”
