The second location of Paradise Donuts opened early this morning.

Marilyn and Hervey Wright III, who opened the first Paradise Donuts at 3107 W. Central back in August, now also have a store at 10607 W. Maple, near Maple and Maize roads.

This one is bigger than the original, Marilyn said, and has more of a coffee shop feel. It’s bigger, has some areas of comfortable seating and eventually will be open later in the afternoons to accommodate people or groups such as book clubs in search of afternoon coffee and dessert.

The menu will include everything the original Paradise has, including both cake and raised doughnuts as well as breakfast burritos,  as well as items such as cheesecake, pie, muffins and cakes. It also has a fully stocked coffee bar.

The hours for the first few weeks are 5 a.m. to noon Mondays through Saturdays and 6 a.m. to noon on Sundays. Then, they’ll extend the hours to stay open until 4 p.m.
