I absolutely love finding restaurants and shops in local neighborhoods. Mighty-O Donuts is no different. Although I do not normally indulge in donuts, what especially peaked my interest about this place was the fact that they stray away from the “norm” and offer plenty of unique donuts such as lemon poppyseed and french toast to name a few. After staring at all of the choices for a few minutes, I finally settled upon the orange blossom (as pictured above).
I definitely was not disappointed with this choice. Not only did my stomach feel more than satisfied, but I am happy that I helped support a local company that is dedicated towards offering food with organic ingredients and sustainability in mind. Seattleites – visit this place and then take a stroll around Greenlake!
I am by no means a doughnut consumer. In fact, I never really think to ever buy a doughnut in the morning.
But, after talking to a few of my friends that lived in the East Coast, I learned that donuts are actually a “cool thing” and people really do consume a lot more doughnuts that I had previously thought. After performing a random Google search, I learned that the East Coast consumes 37% more doughnuts per year than the rest of the country with the national average equating to six doughnuts per person per year (NASC Online). Now, considering this is my first doughnut of 2011 (currently averaging at one-tenth of a doughnut per month), I’m pretty sure I’m not going to hit the national average mark.
Nonetheless, today, one of our employees brought Top Pot Doughnuts for the office and, consequently, one of my co-workers prompted me to try one. I caved and decided to try the one with pink frosting and sprinkles. It was completely fitting and brought out the “little kid” in me. I must say, I really liked it. I’m pretty sure the last time I had a doughnut was sometime a few years back from a grocery store chain’s bakery that was pretty tasteless, too greasy and left me feeling sick. On the contrary, this doughnut was fluffy, flavorful and just over-all delightful. Top Pot Doughnuts convinced me that, every now and then, I might just consider indulging in a doughnut.
