Seattle organic donut provider Mighty-O is set to open its 12th and Madison cafe with a Halloween celebration of superheroes:

Capitol Hill residents are in for an extra treat this Halloween – Mighty-O donuts is opening their third café over the holiday weekend. Seattle’s favorite organic, made-from-scratch donut maker is celebrating its new location and super-delicious donuts with a superhero-themed event on Saturday, October 31st and Sunday, November 1st (7am-1pm), giving out free mini donuts. Plus, those who come dressed as their favorite superhero will be entered to win a donut a day for a year.

In July, CHS reported that Mighty-O would be moving in after Dani Cone announced the five-year-old High 5 Pie had outgrown its original home at 12th and Madison and was “moving into a fantastic commercial production kitchen with our eyes on making even more pies and coming up with places to serve them to you.”

UPDATE: Mighty-O will, indeed, be making their donuts on site — eventually: “Donuts will be made at Capitol Hill! But not quite yet as they finish the bakery build out. Until then, donuts are delivered hot and fresh each morning from one of the other locations.”

Like many elements of food and drink, the Capitol Hill donut/doughnut segment is about to be well-served. After Top Pot held down the fort for years as the only longtime dedicated donut provider in the neighborhood, 2015 is bringing a sweet dough explosion to Capitol Hill.

Renee Erickson will soon open General Porpoise Coffee and Doughnuts. The new donut shop is planned to open this month along with Erickson’s oyster-shucking Bar Melusine and farm-to-table Bateau restaurant in the giant Broadstone Infinity building that now rises above the block of E Union between 10th and 11th Ave. CHS first reported on Erickson’s first Capitol Hill project way back in January.

The new Mighty-O is the company’s third cafe in the city following this summer’s opening in Ballard. The original Mighty-O stands in Wallingford, just above Green Lake.

Mighty-O touts its “made-from-scratch using organic non-gmo, egg and dairy free ingredients that are individually sourced” credentials and claims to serve “the widest selection of organic donuts in the region, including traditional favorites like its cinni-minis, good ol’ glazed, lot’s O chocolate, and apple fritter, as well as famed originals like the seasonal pumpkin spice, coffee bomb, french toast, and lemon poppy.”

The new Mighty-O Capitol Hill is located at 1400 12th Ave and opens Saturday, October 31st at 7 AM. Ongoing hours are still being decided — the other cafes are open from 7 AM to 5 or 6 PM on weekends, 6 AM to 5 or 6 PM on weekdays. You can learn more at mightyo.com. UPDATE: Here’s the details on hours: “For the first month its open, this café will have shorter hours M – F = 6-12, Saturday/Sunday 7-1. Then regular hours will be until 6pm – likely starting in early December.”

UPDATE 10/29/2015 9:30 AM: It’s open!

  1. but whose coffee will they serve? From their website, it’s a mystery.

    Forget all the pastries, I am still crying over the loss of Fuel coffee on that corner.
