BIZNOTE: Dough Joy Donuts on the way to West Seattle Junction – with plants on the side

When Café Mia closed at 4317 SW Oregon six months ago, there were hints of what was on the way – but no confirmation until Dough Joy Donuts‘ announcement today:

Our new location in West Seattle is a donut shop AND a disco-themed plant shop in one! It will feature a layout that includes Dough Joy on one side, and Botanic! at the Disco > @botanicatthedisco < a disco-themed plant shop on the other. Glitter floors, neon lights, disco ball planters, cute houseplants - we got it all!⁣ ⁣At Dough Joy you’ll be able to find our fan favorites like Chocoholic, Strawberry Milkshake, and Pride, and we’ll often feature rotating specials like our Peanut Butter Cup, Banana Cream Pie, Boston Cream - and more! We will also have a full coffee bar with exciting drinks, featuring our friends at Fulcrum coffee. ⁣ ⁣All our donuts are raised, fluffy kind, and also have no egg, dairy, or animal by-products (vegan friendly, but would never know it!).

This is an expansion for Dough Joy, which has been selling its donuts on Capitol Hill and in Ballard. No official opening date yet but “very close” is how they describe it.

    I chime in with a “haven’t you people ever heard of watering the godd*mn plants?”

  • TJ June 3, 2022 (8:52 pm)

    This is exciting news! I wouldn’t have thought that doughnuts and plants go together but it’s an interesting concept. We have needed another doughnut shop in West Seattle since the Top Pot on Alki closed. I look forward to stopping by. 

    • Yep June 3, 2022 (9:14 pm)

      Donuts go with everything!

    • Chris K June 4, 2022 (12:07 pm)

      We needed one since Top Pot opened.

      • Matt June 4, 2022 (10:41 pm)

        This guy doughnuts!

        The Top Pot owner was very cranky for some reason. Wasn’t a good vibe. Can’t wait for this place to open!!! I need both donuts and plants. This is going to save me tons of time.

    West Seattle is alive once again. 

  • Roddy3 June 4, 2022 (3:14 pm)

    Now THAT sounds awesome! I’ll be around….

    This has me craving French crullers.

    • Auntie June 4, 2022 (6:49 pm)

      The only place I have found French crullers is Lucky Donut on 152nd in Burien. Do you know of somewhere closer? I wonder if Dough Joy will have them…

      • Cruller Fan June 5, 2022 (9:34 am)

        Not necessarily closer, but Dona Queen in Sodo also has crullers.

      • Niece June 5, 2022 (10:12 am)

        Good Day in white center has crullers on Saturdays, original bakery on Wednesdays. I accidentally discovered this in the last month!

      • WSMama03 June 14, 2022 (12:41 am)

        The Original Bakery has cruelers on Wednesdays! They’re delish!

  • Delridge resident June 4, 2022 (6:25 pm)

    I dig it, the neighborhood could use another good donut shop! :D

  • Derek June 5, 2022 (9:56 pm)

    These donuts are so good! Used to get them all the time on the Hill and in Ballard

  • Elton June 5, 2022 (10:39 pm)

    Congrats and good luck with the expansion! Love that it’s vegan as we have a dairy sensitivity in our household!

  • wsguys June 6, 2022 (6:36 am)

    wow – more cheap, sugary processed food. perfect for covid. when will people ever learn not to eat this stuff. 

    • WSRes June 7, 2022 (9:43 am)

      Leave people’s food choices alone. 

    • ImNotSparticus June 7, 2022 (10:27 am)

      Have you ever heard the term “don’t yuck my yum”? Something to think about, Debbie Downer. Let people enjoy things. 

    • YES2WS June 7, 2022 (6:06 pm)

      @wsguys… I’ll keep it simple. “You do you”.

  • lew June 6, 2022 (6:30 pm)

    These are some of the best donuts I’ve ever had (and I consider myself somewhat of an expert lol). I am SO excited to hear we’ll be getting a store here!

Sorry, comment time is over.
