Better-Maid Donuts in Crafton Heights is back in business

Written by Edgar Ramirez on .


For those who have been craving doughnuts from the Pink House on Steuben Street, crave no more: Better-Maid Donuts is back.

If you recall, the popular Crafton Heights shop was put out of business back in April when an errant van tore a hole (seriously) through the building.


Asked back then if he planned to rebuild, owner Ken Smith (pictured top) said "We’ll see."

Well, safe to say from this morning that locals are happy he did.

Mr. Smith said the shop opened at 6 this morning and the doughnuts were all "sold out" by 6:57 a.m. Mr. Smith — who does all the baking himself — said that he had made 80 dozen donuts the night before.

Welcome back to the neighborhood, Better-Maid Donuts.
