Because this wouldn't be a Boston blog without some discussion of donuts...


First, the Krispy Kreme in the Prudential-Copley-giant-mall-complex-mega-thing closes. Then the Krispy Kreme locations in Saugus and Medford close. Now, Dunkin Donuts, while unfortunately not closing any time soon, has been sold. I guess there's hope yet that this city might stop being so obsessed with donut retailers.

In honor of these monumental occasions, I bring you the beta version of:

EEKA'S LIST OF PLACES IN THE BOSTON AREA WHERE THERE ARE TWO DUNKIN DONUTS LOCATIONS ON THE SAME BLOCK*

So far I have found:

  • Dunkin Donuts on Causeway Street, across from TheFleetfAmericaTDNorthBankMcGapDisneyBarnGarden with the Dunkin Donuts in it
  • Dunkin Donuts on Alewife Brook Parkway, across the rotary from the Dunkin Donuts
  • Dunkin Donuts in the Fenway, on Boylston street, on the same block as the Dunkin Donuts on Mass Ave
  • Dunkin Donuts in Lynn on Boston Street , about a block from the Dunkin Donuts on Boston Street

If you're aware of any more, please let me know and I'll add them.

*"Block" in this case refers to a major city block. I am aware that a few of these locations have a small side street in between the two establishments, but I think we can all agree that they definitely constitute two Dunkies locations being entirely too near one another

While not in Boston per se, don't forget the one in (Hanover? Sictuciate?) where there's a Double Drive Thru right across the street from a regular Dunkies.

HEE, it's in Hull, and we need to get a picture of that one to do it justice!

Doesn't fit your definition of "the same block," but there are way too many Dunkin' Donuts on Washington Street between Rozzie Square and the Dedham Mall.

The Dunkin' Donuts store finder shows one at 426 Washington St. and another at 417 Washington St. This is the downtown Washington Street, not the Rozzie/Westie one. And yes, I need to get out more.

in JP they just put one in a tedeschi about a block from the existing dunkies store.

There's one in Canton in the Mobil station at Cobb's Corner right diagonally across from the Dunkie's opposite CVS.

I used to play this particular game with BayBank ATMs (remember them?), back when any other bank's ATM was a rarity.

Two (four?) candidates:

Lynnway (Rt. 1A): One DD's in the Norelco building (northbound), the other is on the southbound side.

Salem: Three DD's in three blocks on Highland Ave. (Rt. 107), southbound side; DD#1 is the old Quikava drive-up near Pep Boys. DD#2 is one block up next to Tri-City Sales. DD#3 is the food franchise in Wal-Mart, just up the road from #2.

Adam, there's one underground at Downtown Crossing station -- I think that's one of the Washington St. ones.

There's one on the Green Line level of Government Center T station, and another directly above it next to Starbucks in the Sears Crescent building.

Hello, I run Dunkin Donuts Talk and I keep a list of Dunkin Donuts locations across all 50 states. It's not complete by any stetch of the imagination, but it's growing.
