Seattle’s go-to sweet spots
The doughy deliciousness that is the doughnut seems to be having a resurgence of late, particularly in Seattle, the home of culinary innovation and excellence. We are certainly not complaining. We’ve found some of the donut shops in the city so you can get your fix morning, noon, and night. Google maps, are you ready?
What’s not to love about General Porpoise (the name is winning already) where wholesome donuts made with fresh eggs from La Ferme des Anes chickens and are filled with seasonal jams, jellies, curds, custards, and creams. Expect classic flavors like vanilla custard or berries and cream, as well as new favorites, like peanut butter and jelly, roasted lemon curd, apple butter, and chocolate marshmallow, paired with remarkable coffees from roasters near and far.
Established in 2000, Mighty-O Donuts are organic, vegan donuts made with respect for the environment. All their mixes & glazes are made from scratch using certified organic ingredients. With flavors like Cuckoo for Coconut, Raspberry Riot, and Topless Chocolate, it’s going to be a difficult to choose. Go with friends so you can try them all.
Lastly, at The Original Bakery, started in 1935, nestled in West Seattle’s Fauntleroy neighborhood, offers special donuts on different days of the week (as well as offering a decent number of staples every day. There’s apple-sauce Friday, buttermilk donut Thursday and Saturday, and French Crueller Wednesday. (Note: they are closed Mondays.)
