| December 13, 2017 | 1 Comments

Sundays, a new doughnut concept from Dooby’s and Sugarvale owner Phil Han, opens today at Cross Street Market in Federal Hill. The new stall is at the former home of Hot Corner Lee’s near the Light St. entrance.

Sundays will sell a variety of brioche doughnuts including French​ ​Toast, which is dusted​ ​with​ ​fine​ ​cinnamon​ ​and​ ​sugar​ and ​filled​ ​with​ ​maple​ ​custard; ​Eggnog, which is inspired by the favorite holiday drink; ​Raspberry​ ​Almond, which is inspired by cookies; and New York-Style with everything bagel seasoning and a jalapeño and chive cream cheese filling.

Most doughnuts will be $3.25 each.

Sundays will also sell fried chicken sandwiches, which include the original with ancho-chile aioli and bread and butter pickles, and the Avocado BLT with herb aioli. It also will offer breakfast sandwiches, salads, and crinkle-cut fries. Drinks include cold brew coffee and iced green tea.

Han has spent the last year trying to find a home for this concept and is happy to finally open at Cross Street Market. “We’re​ ​excited​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​part​ ​of​ ​this​ ​historic​ ​market,” said Han in a press release.​ “When​ ​I​ ​was​ ​a​ ​kid​ ​in​ ​‘90s,​ ​I​ ​used​ ​to​ ​run between​ ​the​ ​stalls,​ ​when​ ​we​ ​visited​ ​family​ ​friends​ ​who​ ​operated​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​the​ ​shops. It’s​ ​going​ ​to​ ​be​ ​an​ ​adventure​ ​watching​ ​this​ ​market​ ​evolve,​ ​and​ ​I’m​ ​sure​ ​those​ ​same family-friends​ ​will​ ​pay​ ​us​ ​a​ ​visit​ ​to​ ​see​ ​how​ ​the​ ​market’s​ ​changing.”

Han noted how he loves being a part of the market’s business community. “Our​ ​neighbors​ ​here​ ​have​ ​been​ ​amazing.​ ​We’ve​ ​received​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​support​ ​from​ ​John (Steve’s​ ​Lunch),​ ​Henry​ ​(Fenwick’s),​ ​and​ ​Anna​ ​(Big​ ​Jim’s),​ ​among​ ​others.​ ​We​ ​can already​ ​tell​ ​they​ ​look​ ​out​ ​after​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​as​ ​they’ve​ ​done​ ​for​ ​us,” he said.

Han and his family are residents of Locust Point.

Sundays hosted a preview last Saturday and will have its soft opening this week from 8am to 3pm on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, and on Friday and Saturday from 8am to 7pm. Its regular schedule starting next week will be Tuesday to Saturday from 8am to 7pm, and Sunday from 8am to 3pm. It will be closed on Mondays.

Sundays’ current stall location will be temporary as the market works though phased renovations during its redevelopment by Caves Valley Partners. These renovations will begin early next year.

Sundays joins Cookie Dough & Co.Prescription Chicken and Gertie’s Yummy Yogurt Bowls, and Smoke as new stalls that opened at Cross Street Market in the last couple of weeks. Big Jim’s Deli announced last week that its last day will be on December 16th.
