Sweet craving? Head to one of these donut shops in Seattle.
We rounded up our top ten favorite donut shops in Seattle. Some of their menus may surprise you. Seattle does donuts a little differently than other places. Sure, you can find a classic glazed donut at a Krispy Kreme in Seattle. However, many of the donut shops here like to push the envelope and stand out. You’ll be able to find vegan donuts, brioche donuts filled with unexpected flavors, and even savory donuts. Of course, you can also always find a classic powdered donut hole in Seattle as well.
And don’t forget: Every June 3 is the day when we celebrate these sweet fried dough confections with free donuts, discounts, and more throughout the city. We update this post every June to bring you the best deals for National Donut Day. That being said, every day is a good day for a donut!
