When I visit a new place or in this situation, move to a new place, I like to scope out the local food scene fairly quickly. Oddly enough this is how I begin connecting with my new home and start falling in love. Mighty O's Donuts here in Seattle is just one of these early discoveries and has become a fast favorite in just a matter of months.
We love stopping by during donut happy hour (the last hour the bakery is open) as all remaining donuts are 50% off. Right now happy hour runs from 5 until 6 p.m. each day. This isn't advertised very openly so consider yourself "in the know". And because it's Seattle, the donuts are even organic :) Prepare yourself for a yummy donut that isn't overly sweet; but be forewarned that you'll still end up with that yucky feeling in your stomach if you try to pop more than one. Experience has taught us this :)
Keep in mind that not all donuts are created equal, even at Mighty O's. First-timers will want to try the French Toast and Lemon Poppyseed donuts. They are downright, over-the-top delicious! Also, if you try a Mighty O donut, be sure to purchase it at the actual bakery in Wallingford and not at say, Whole Foods. There is nothing like a fresh, warm donut for a reasonable price.
Locals, where are your favorite treat spots? Do you mind sharing?
