This delicious spot is another pop-up turned permanent. The Flour Box focuses on handmade filled brioche donuts with inventive flavors. A few recent flavors have included Thai milk tea, mango cream, and pistachio to name a few. Keep in mind they are only open for walk-up on the weekend so if you want to enjoy donuts during the week you’ll have to order ahead.

We’ll cap this list with a Pike Place Market favorite, Daily Dozen. You can enjoy mini donuts straight out of the fryer and covered in cinnamon sugar. They’re an old-time Seattle fave that always tastes good and is yet another excuse to head to the market.
