Prepare for Kolaches at Proofed, A New Cafe Taking Over Tchoup's Blue Dot in July

Come mid-July the former Blue Dot on Tchoup will still have donuts, but lunch options too.


Todd Price reported a few weeks ago that a mysterious switcheroo was taking place at the Tchoupitoulas location of Blue Dot doughnut shop, and this week Ian McNulty has all the juicy details: While Brandon Singleton still holds stake in the original Blue Dot doughnut shop on Canal, he and wife Claire have decided to dissolve their Uptown franchise to expand into a more lunch-oriented operation called Proofed Donuts & Kolaches. The cafe will still roll out doughnuts, but will add kolaches, pigs in a blanket, muffins, coffee, Italian sodas and more items to the menu.

The shop is currently open (and will stay open) as Uptown Doughnuts. The conceptual change into Proofed will happen in mid-July, likely after some minor interior and exterior renovations including painting and a bar for more seating.
