The Mighty-O forum for free thinking, eating & drinking
Mighty-O was founded in the '90s with a simple idea: to make an honest living while being mindful of people and respectful of the environment. We use certified organic ingredients to make the most delicious, original donuts you can find.
Keep up with us:
Or better yet, come hang out at our
cafe, located at 2110 North 55th St. in Seattle.
Jackie Cort is an Encaustic Artist in Snohomish who currently has work on exhibit at The Schack Art Center. Her art is colorful, fun, and on currently on display at the Mighty-O cafe! Check out her website for more of her work and for information on how to contact her.
The Creeplys have arrived at the Mighty-O cafe just in time for Halloween. Amber Marie Austin contacted us a while back about putting up some of her art in the cafe, and we couldn’t think of a more perfect theme for October. Check out some of her hand-drawn pieces below, and get to the cafe to purchase your favorites before the Mighty-O employees get to them first!
Back in 2011 our awesome baker, Sara Beth, was invited to go on the Food Network Donut Showdown against three other donut bakeries, one of which was Seattle’s Top Pot Doughnuts. Sara Beth skillfully baked her way through each round and ended up going head-to-head with Top Pot in the final round.
It was the French Toast donut that helped us win the competition — her creation of a spice cake topped with maple glaze and a dusting of nutmeg wow’d the judges, and Sara Beth came home with bragging rights and $10,000.
The French Toast donut is still a staple in our cafe and in wholesale locations. Customers and kids love it, and we love having a flavor as unique as we are.
Check out the link below to see some footage of Sara Beth in the competition, and give the French Toast a try next time you see us in the cafe or your favorite wholesale location!
Mighty-O comrade Megan Helmer had the pleasure of seeing Vandana Shiva, an environmentalist and activist for global justice, at the third annual YES magazine event September 12th at Town Hall in Seattle.
The tickets were sold out. There were an estimated 850 plus people attending with a wait list outside. Many generous community members were there including: PCC Farmland Trust, Seattle Tilth, Zero Waste Washington, Non-GMO Project, Ground Zero, KBCS, Washington Toxics Coalition, Eat Local, YES on 522 for a full list visit, www.yesmagazine.org
YES on 522 was one of the main issues discussed by Shiva. She affirmed the importance of food labeling, organic farming our right to save seeds, and what we need to do to protect global biodiversity and why we should stop worldwide genetically engineered foods from being in our food supply.
Mighty-O Donuts was so happy to donate donuts to the event and interchange with community members that not only influence Seattle dwellers but our nation. Mighty-O endorses I-522, YES to food labeling.
Wednesday, Sept. 25 will be the opening gala for Seattle’s annual Decibel Festival! Head to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum to check out Mileece, an artist whose interactive “ecoscapes” are generated from the emissions of plants and sensor-based musical instruments.
If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, can an apple donut do the same? Maybe not, but we use local, organic apples to make this zesty fall seasonal, so that’s got to count for something.
(By the way, did you know that more than half of all apples grown in the U.S. for fresh eating come from orchards in Washington state?)
Summer in Seattle is nearing its end. Gone are the days of the sunshine, leisurely walks around Greenlake, and paddle boarders out on Lake Washington. We’re in for another rainy season, so why not make the most of it? It’s the perfect time to get cozy in our cafe with a cup of coffee and a donut that tastes like tastes better than apple cider. A spice cake topped with apple glaze and a dusting of cinnamon? Hellooooo fall!
