Owners Christopher Hollowell and Dan Dunbar bake twice daily, always starting with the basic chocolate, vanilla, and berry flavors. “After that,” the pair says, “we just play.” To celebrate National Doughnut Day, Dun-Well’s is giving away free doughnuts with their new line of espresso drinks. We’ll take a Salted Caramel Latte and a baker’s dozen to go, please.
