SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The owners of Hook & Press Donuts in Santa Barbara announced that their craft donut shop is getting a well-deserved upgrade, including a new location and new kitchen.
Run by Santa Barbara locals John Burnett and Denisse Salinas, Hook & Press has been operating out of a shared co-op retail space on State Street in Mosaic Locale since 2018. The store said they have had to share an off-site kitchen with limited early morning hours when creating their specialty donuts.
Now, the beloved shop is moving to a new spot at 15 East Figueroa Street in La Arcada Plaza, the former home of Jeannine's Bakery.
“We’re beyond thrilled for our shop’s new home in the impossibly charming La Arcada Plaza and look forward to creating a warm, welcoming environment for our community in the iconic former home of Jeannine’s Bakery, a longtime favorite spot of ours, ” said Salinas.
The new location will also give Hook & Press their own full-access kitchen.
“Moving into a full-access kitchen in our own space will allow us to expand our hours of operation, increase production and evolve our menu, providing the opportunity to become the donut shop we have always envisioned,” explained Burnett.
Currently, Hook & Press's menu consists of a variety of scratch-made yeast-raised donuts, delicious apple fritters and a full espresso bar serving Santa Barbara's own Coastal Coffee Collective.
With their new kitchen and location, the shop is excited to finally add cakestyle, gluten free and vegan donuts to the menu as well as a selection of savory breakfast and brunch items.
