It’s doughnut WEEK on the blog, with Sunday’s post on Top Pot Doughnuts and Wednesday’s doughnut cocktail post, all leading up to National Doughnut Day — a day our household will for sure be celebrating.
If you’re in the Seattle area, I want to help you out with some tips to make sure you celebrate doughnuts (or donuts) today!
Top Pot Doughnuts have locations everywhere, including representation at most QFC grocery stores. Find a full list of Top Pot locations here. And a list of their offerings here. I’m not a coffee drinker, but I hear their Ovaltine mocha is a must-have. So order one of those alongside your doughnut! (Please note: QFC has a wide variety of Top Pot Doughnuts, but not all of them. If you want some of the more-specialized doughnuts, I’d recommend hitting up a Top Pot cafe.) Read about my recent tour of Top Pot here.
If you’re downtown and craving a smaller portion of doughnut, Daily Dozen Doughnuts is the place to be. Daily Dozen Doughnuts offer mini doughnuts in the following options: plain, cinnamon-sugar, powder-sugared, frosted (with sprinkles!), and their newest, more limited options: maple and maple-bacon. You can order them by the half or full dozen and I highly recommend the “assorted” option, with several of each variety. If you want a maple or maple bacon, be sure to specify as they aren’t normally included in the assorted option. Bring cash, as Daily Dozen Doughnuts doesn’t accept any other form of payment. And be sure to tip, their sign tells you to. For location and more information, visit their Facebook page.
If you think doughnuts are too unhealthy to celebrate, you should visit Mighty-O Donuts in the Green Lake area. These vegan donuts are made without: chemical preservatives, hydrogenated oils (trans fat), coloring or artificial flavors, and animal derived ingredients, which make them cholesterol free, and they still taste good! Normally I go for the sprinkle options, but my favorite at Mighty-O is the lemon poppy donut. For location and more information, visit their website. Enjoy!
Krispy Kreme is not a favorite of mine anymore (they were when they first opened), but they’re classic and tasty and offering free doughnuts today. Go get some at a location near you!
