Pick a place in London — Sarah Kendall-Harris probably has a doughnut named after it.
“My dad has all these fabulous recipes from England,” said Kendall-Harris, a Port Credit resident.
“I’m constantly thinking up new flavours.”
Eton, for instance, is equated with whipped cream, berries and meringue.
It’s one of about 15 flavours Kendall-Harris, along with her husband, Aaron, will be offering at their gourmet doughnut shop.
Daddy O Doughnuts & British Baked Goods is slated to open in early July at 589 North Service Rd., in the Asta Dr. convenience store plaza slightly west of Cawthra Rd.
Decorated in pastel colours, the name is a nod to her father.
“My dad, when he was younger, worked as a baker in England,” said Kendall-Harris, 40.
When her parents came to Canada, “they always baked stuff from home.”
She recalls spending hours in the kitchen with her two sisters.
“We were always making cheese straws and probably really horrible cookies because they were probably over-rolled so much,” she said.
Kendall-Harris began selling her goodies a few years ago at the Port Credit Farmers’ Market, “which was fantastic … I love seeing people enjoy my stuff.”
She says she realized she wanted to open a store, trying for a spot in the east village near Lakeshore Rd. E. and Hiawatha Pkwy.
Hurdles resulted in her heading north of the QEW, where there’s ample space for a commercial kitchen and free parking.

Kendall-Harris, who works in accounting by day, says her family is excited for the grand opening.
“This is what my dad always wanted to do when he first came to Canada, so I’m kind of living his dream.”
