Great news for PNW donut lovers: Portland’s Voodoo Doughnut is coming to Seattle!
Chances are you’ve tried or at least heard of these famous Portland donuts. Voodoo Doughnut first opened in Portland in 2003 and has since become nationally known for its creative and funky flavors. Their artisan donuts are made fresh daily and are often topped with unique designs. They offer custom and vegan options as well.
Voodoo Doughnuts has already expanded beyond its Portland locations to other states including Colorado, Texas, and California. Although there is currently one Voodoo shop in Washington (Vancouver, WA to be specific) it’s about time they come to Seattle. And we already know the exact location!
The Seattle Voodoo Doughnut shop will be opening in Capitol Hill. According to the Puget Sound Business Journal, planning documents have been filed with the city for Voodoo to move into the Booker Building on the corner of Pine Street and Minor Avenue after necessary renovations are made. As of yet, there is no opening date or timeline. We will update this post when we find out more!
“We’re thrilled to finally bring some Voodoo Magic to Seattle,” said Voodoo Doughnut CEO Chris Schultz. “It’s been many years in the making and the Capitol Hill neighborhood is the perfect site for our first store.”
Although Seattle has no shortage of delicious donut shops, we think the playful designs and flavors of Voodoo Doughnuts (such as the Maple Blazer Blunt and the chili pepper-topped Ring of Fire) will definitely make a splash in the food scene here.
