Diablo Doughnuts Relocating from Brooklyn to Overlea

| January 18, 2023 | 0 Comments

Diablo Doughnuts is relocating from 3432 S. Hanover St. in Brooklyn to 7698 Belair Rd., Suite 101 at the Belair Beltway Plaza in Overlea. This will be Diablo’s last weekend open in Brooklyn.

Owner Michael Roslan told SouthBMore.com that the lease was up at 3432 S. Hanover St. and the partners on the building, which include The Smoking Swine and Dizzy Cow Pizzeria, have decided to go their own ways. Roslan said he would’ve loved to stay, but couldn’t afford the rent on the entire building.

The new space is less than two miles from the home of Michael Roslan and his wife Emily. They have a 15-month-old son and look forward to being able to see him more often with the business being so close to home. The Roslans are also excited about the available parking in the shopping center.

Suite 101 is a former tax business, so the Roslans had to build out an all-new kitchen and restaurant.

Michael Roslan said they hope to open in Overlea on February 8th.

At the Brooklyn location there was a commissary kitchen shared with all the other businesses at 3432 S. Hanover St. Michael Roslan said he is now looking forward to having their own dedicated kitchen. They will expand their menu by offering breakfast sandwiches, croissants, and fresh bread to go with the doughnuts, as well as Pfefferkorn Coffee. Emily Roslan is a trained pastry chef and has a degree in Food Science.

The new location will be mostly carryout and Diablo will continue to do catering orders. The Roslans also look to bring back some wholesaling to local coffee shops.

Diablo Doughnuts started in Fells Point in a shared space with Hot Tomatoes, moved to Federal Hill in 2018, and later relocated to the Brooklyn location in 2021.

Roslan said business was steady in Brooklyn, but slower than his Federal Hill location. He said he spoke with a lot of his customers that didn’t want to come into the city anymore because of crime. But, Roslan says he does not rule out another location in the city in the future.
