Moments after swinging its doors open in Babylon Village on Thursday, the highly-anticipated doughnut shop Doughology became flooded with patrons.

“We looked around at many towns on Long Island, and as soon as we walked around Babylon we knew this was the place we wanted to be,” Doughology’s owner Chris Stiansen told GreaterBabylon on opening day, all while serving up his freshly-made treats to customers.

As previously reported, the owners, Chris and his wife Jackie, opened their original location in Lynbrook in 2016, before acquiring 80 West Main Street, next to La Famiglia earlier this year.

“We went to the Post Office Cafe for dinner and we walked around and said ‘this is the place we have to be,'” said Chris. “And we’re just so fortunate this place was available.”

Doughology is known for its specialty creations such as its rainbow cookie, snicker, and maple bacon donuts.

It will be the only doughnut shop in town after it was a announced that Surf Donuts, which was only open for three months, will be closing down indefintely.

In addition to the doughy treats, Doughology also serves coffee, baked muffins, fried Oreos, as well as having a waffle bar.

The Stiansen will be offering the following hours at their Babylon location: open Tuesday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
