Melbourne's home of the earl grey and rose doughnut is bringing its sweet wares north with Shortstop Coffee & Donuts opening on Wednesday at Barangaroo.

Shortstop's owners traversed the United States in search of doughnut perfection before launching in Melbourne in 2014, bringing a local flavour to their creations with ingredients such as Australian honey and sea salt.

Traditional yeast-raised rings aren't the only way to doughnut heaven, so Shortstop covers the bases with enough cake-based doughnuts to rock a police convention.

The idea for the local opening was driven by Sydneysiders pit-stopping at the Melbourne store to buy in bulk. Getting their hands on a burnt caramel and fennel doughnut is about to get a whole lot easier.

Open Mon-Fri 7.30am-4.30pm; Sat-Sun 9.30am-3.30pm.
