BIZNOTE: Dough Joy Donuts opens in West Seattle Junction

Three weeks after we reported that Dough Joy Donuts was taking over the ex-Café Mia space in The Junction, they’re open. We got a tip last night from @westseattlereviews that Dough Joy had soft-opened earlier in the day, and after another tip this morning, we went over to confirm. Yes, they’re open at 4317 SW Oregon, and their hours will be 8 am-2 pm Wednesdays-Sundays. Their specialty is “plant-based donuts.” Dough Joy has beverages too:

And yes, as promised, one side of the shop is devoted to plants:

Along with the West Seattle, Dough Joy sells its donuts via a shop on Capitol Hill and truck in Ballard

    They did a pop up at my work downtown. Amazingly good donuts. I am so excited to stop by. Welcome to the neighborhood!

        The original bakery off Fauntleroy is really good! They have french crullers every Wed too 😋

          Agreed!  Original Bakery is awesome!!!!   It’s right next to Endolyne Joes and in the same little business district as Wildwood Market- just south of Lincoln Park and the Vashon/Southworth Ferry dock (for those who may not be familiar). I’m partial to the maple bars, Apple fritters, and applesauce doughnuts. Fresh baked breads, too!  If I’m up in the Junction, though, I’ll stop in and give these doughnuts a try!

    They were pretty much out of donuts…I got some donut holes and a coffee bun. Both were ok.

  • Dlj June 24, 2022 (2:32 pm)

    Grand opening…. Grand closing. We arrived and they had already sold out for the day 😩😩😩. I plan on camping out tonight (jk). Can’t wait for that first bite. 

  • Gina June 24, 2022 (2:40 pm)

    Ooooh, the apple fritter was GOOD!

  • Gina June 24, 2022 (2:42 pm)

    Ooooh, the apple fritter was GOOD! And they are made in the store.

  • R2 June 24, 2022 (3:10 pm)

    Will there be crullers?

  • Delridge neighbor June 24, 2022 (3:34 pm)

    Excited! Glad there’s a vegan option available for West Seattle!

  • Dorn June 24, 2022 (6:08 pm)

    I hope they sell cronuts, I know they’re the pretentious cousin of donuts but they’re still amazing.

  • Vee June 24, 2022 (8:37 pm)

    Coffee looks expensive 

    • Question Authority June 24, 2022 (10:42 pm)

      Maybe it’s plant based as well?  Joking aside it’s quite expensive for hot flavored (or not) liquid. Also flour, sugar, yeast and the like are plant based, what’s the gimmick?

      • WSB June 25, 2022 (3:05 am)

        Explained on their home page.
        “We are 100% plant based &
        completely animal free.

        Most raised donuts are made with egg, milk, butter, and loads of cheap ingredients to make them tasty. We cut out all the animal products, use hand picked high quality ingredients, and make all our donuts in small batches daily.”

    Excited to bring the kids in to try it out. Any chance of some gluten-free donuts? 

Sorry, comment time is over.
