National Doughnut Day (Friday, June 5) may be far from your mind this week, but taking a break and treating yourself to a bit of delicious fried dough, not to mention supporting locally owned doughnut shops, is still very much encouraged. Some local bakeries are also pledging to donate proceeds from this weekend's sales to social justice causes like Black Lives Matter Seattle-King County or the Equal Justice Initiative, which in a way echoes the benevolent origin story of the holiday (it was created to honor the Salvation Army volunteers who distributed doughnuts to soldiers during World War I). Below, we've rounded up special to-go offerings available on Friday, as well as some of our favorite local purveyors of glazed, filled, and frosted treats.
This black-owned Lynnwood shop goes beyond your standard old fashioned and jelly-filled doughnuts with inventive flavors like ube (a sweet purple yam popular in the Philippines) with toasted coconut, raspberry-glazed mango, and red dragonfruit. They're open for walk-in orders on National Doughnut Day, as well as delivery through Postmates and DoorDash.
