Please have a read through the following FAQs and if your problem isn’t answered below, feel free to get in touch.
Do you deliver to me?
We have recently expanded our delivery area for pre-orders only. You’ll only be able to see this wider area if you have selected a future date (not today).
You can also view our area here or jump online to our order page and enter your postcode to check.
How much is delivery?
Our pre-order delivery fee is £5.95, which covers most of Greater London. If you are placing an on-demand order for today, we use a third party courier and pass on their fee to you.
What time will my order arrive?
With the high volume of orders, we aren’t able to specify specific delivery times, however do find that, usually, most orders are delivered between 7am and 7pm.
In some instances you may receive a text message to the number provided on the order when our driver is on their way.
I can’t enter my address properly
If you’re experiencing some trouble adding in your address, you can try typing the street name rather than just the postcode. If this still doesn’t work, please enter the closest address that matches yours, then during checkout add your correct address in the delivery notes section.
When can I get my order?
We’re now accepting orders 24/7!
Pre-Orders: for the full range of products, place your order by midnight for next day delivery directly from our bakery.
Same-day Orders: fulfilled directly from our stores across London. Store opening times and live stock levels apply.
Can I alter the contents of my order?
Unfortunately not. With such a small team working at full capacity, we don’t have the systems in place to allow changes to either these boxes or any of our doughnut boxes.
If you have an allergy, please consider if the product you are purchasing is right for you as we are unable to make any amendments at this time.
I need to change something on my order
If your order is due for delivery today or tomorrow, please contact us via our online chat so we can get your request looked into as soon as possible.
If your order is for another day, please email us and be sure to include: Your order number, name and what you need changed.
Please note it does take our team time to collate orders and organise them into routes for our drivers.
My order hasn’t arrived
If your order was for today, please allow us time (till at least 7pm) to deliver it before getting in touch.
If your delivery date has passed and you’ve still not received your order, please get in touch as soon as possible via our online chat or by email. Be sure to include: Your order number and what items were missing.
My order arrived, but something’s not right
If you’re missing items or not happy with something, please email us within 24 hours of your order being delivered. Please ensure to include your order number (found of the packing slip or your order confirmation) and a photo of any incorrect or damaged items.
What is your delivery process?
If you have placed a pre-order with us, we will always provide contactless delivery.
Our same day on-demand orders are delivered by a third party courier who have their own delivery policies outside our control.
Our pre-orders are delivered by our own Crosstown fleet, process is as follows:
1. Our Crosstown drivers will ring bell / knock on your door, place the box on the ground outside your door and stand back for you to collect.
2. If there is no answer, the driver will call the number provided on the order.
3. If there is still no answer, the driver will leave your items at the door and leave a voicemail or txt explaining where your order was left.
Please note, our drivers are very busy and are unable to re-attempt delivery at a later time.
I placed an order but didn’t get a confirmation
Every now and then emails somehow find their way into the abyss. Firstly, please do a quick search in your inbox and spam folder for emails from ‘email@example.com’.
If there’s still no joy, simply email us and make sure you include:
– Your Name
– What you ordered / purchase amount
– Last 4 digits of the card you paid with
This will help us locate your order quickly and check if it has gone through or not.
When will you reply to my enquiry?
Our Customer Service team are available 10am-6pm, Monday to Saturday, and we will get back to your email within 48 hours.
Do you offer vegan sourdough doughnuts?
Yes! You can now order vegan sourdough doughnuts for delivery across England, Wales and Lowland Scotland.
Which days do you deliver?
We’re delivering next day across most of the UK from Tuesday – Saturday. Due to restrictions with our courier network we’re unable to deliver seven days a week.
When will my order arrive?
Your vast majority of orders arrive before 2pm on the delivery date you selected during the checkout process (also noted on your order confirmation). On rare occasions, our courier partner experiences delays and your order may arrive the day after you selected. If this is the case, we will be in touch with you to discuss. Tracking can sometimes take a little while to update for us but we do our best to give you the most up-to-date information. You will receive an email on the day your order is collected from our bakery, and another email on the morning of delivery.
How long will my doughnuts stay fresh?
We advise eating the doughnuts on the day that you receive your order.
How should I store my doughnuts?
Keep your doughnuts out of direct sunlight at an ambient room temperature, not in the fridge or freezer.
How do I place an order?
Click here and select our national delivery service. Enter your address and follow the instructions to place an order.
How can I track my order?
You will be emailed once your order has been collected by the courier (usually the day before delivery). You will then receive an email with a delivery window on the day of delivery.
What happens if nobody is in to receive the delivery?
The courier will do their best to leave the parcel in a safe place, such as in a porch or behind something out of sight. If that’s not possible, the driver will take the parcel with them. If they’re contacted shortly after the attempted delivery, there is a chance they will be able to redeliver. However, there is no guarantee. To arrange a redelivery, you will need to follow the instructions emailed to you or contact our customer service team.
I’ve entered my postcode and it says you don’t deliver to me
Whilst we’re covering most of the UK, our national delivery service does not offer next day delivery across some areas of the UK, including parts Scotland and Ireland. If your address isn’t working, check our delivery map here. If you’re inside our delivery area and still having issues, get in touch with our team via email or live chat.

What are the delivery drivers doing to keep my order Covid-safe/are they practicing good hygiene?

Do you have nutritional information?
Crosstown doughnuts are crafted by hand using the best ingredients we can find. With the varied sizes and weights that come with artisan products, we’re unable to provide solid nutritional information. Our hybrid sourdough has less fat absorption when deep-fried due to the stronger crumb. All of our fillings, jams, toppings and glazes are made in-house from scratch. None of our doughnuts contain any trans fat. If you’d like the nutritional info for our core flavours, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you do gluten free doughnuts/cookies?

Yep, in fact all of our doughnuts/cookies are suitable for vegetarians.
Are any of your doughnuts/cookies vegan?
Can I eat my doughnuts/cookies tomorrow?
Crosstown doughnuts are hand made without preservatives to be eaten on the day of purchase or delivery.
Cookies are best eaten on the day of purchase. However, they can be kept for up to 5 days in an airtight container. Pop them in the oven at 200 degrees until chocolate has melted or microwave for 20 seconds to revive them. They can also be frozen in an air-tight container on the day of purchase and kept for up to 6 months. Allow them to come to room temperature before consuming or heat as above.
Should I keep them in the fridge?
Surprisingly not. The doughnuts should be kept ambient (room temp) as refrigerating them can cause the doughnuts to dry out. As per above, they are best consumed on the day of purchase.
