Never fear, Mighty-O is here

I totally stole this donut from Roman.

Let me just start off by saying that I am not a big fan of sugary things. I'm one of those people that likes to pile frosting on cupcakes to make them look all cute and fancy and then I scrape it off to actually eat the cupcake. (With only a few exceptions, being my favorite.) That being said, I love me some Mighty-O.


Mighty-O Donuts are all like "Hey, baby, I'm vegan. You know you want me." Then after you decide to buy her a drink, she up follows you home and starts putting pink toilet paper in your bathroom and making up nicknames for your cats. Yeah, then you realize that she's all slutty and sugary on the outside, but there's that really kinky chocolate raspberry number she likes to wear. Oh, no and then the french toast (sometimes with nuts). Before you know it, you're having a sugary, vegan orgasm, wishing for more, even though you know damn well that your mistress is way sweeter than you normally like. It's okay, though. Mighty-O just wants to be friends. With benefits.

Whew. I think I need a nap after all of that excitement.

Donuts, donuts, donuts and a soy chai.

I've now decided that whenever I go to Seattle, it needs to include a trip to get some vegan donuts. This time I was even really nice and not only brought some to my hungover Seattle friends, but brought some back to Vancouver for my coworkers on a rainy Monday morning. But not before I had one last fling with Chocolate peanut.


In the picture above, you see donuts that can cure a hangover. Okay, not really, but I think they did help. Clockwise from the top right, you have cinnamon sugar, french toast with peanuts, applesauce and plain cake with sprinkles. Organic sprinkles at that!


For my Vancouver peeps, I brought these. Again, clockwise from the top right: Don King, chocolate raspberry, french toast, pumpkin, choclate peanut and plain cake with sprinkles.

All packed up and ready to go.


  1. Please. You are making me drool. We went to Mighty O during our vacation to Seattle and Vancouver last summer. In the three days we spent in Seattle, we ate two and a half dozen doughnuts. Two of us. I do the same exact thing with my cupcake frosting, but after these doughnuts, I was all, "Is that a crumb?!? Don't throw the box out with that crumb inside!"

    And the coffee shop across the street made THE best soy latte I've ever had in my life.

  2. OMG! these are amazing! Not so good for my diet though! :D

  3. man, I've got to find my way there this weekend.

  4. Oh my god, you've made me want these very badly... even though they do sound like they'd make high-maintenance girlfriends... I want to pick them up based on looks alone! Does that make me a chauvinist? What does it even matter, I live on the wrong coast! Boo hooooo.

  5. dang, looks delicious. although i was very disappointed to hear that mighty-o is not completely vegan and has a big fridge full of cow's milk that they use for drinks.

    ugh, WHY?!?!

  6. Even though they do have milk for drinks, I think it's still damn awesome that such a place even exists. It's hard to find places that make sure everything is vegan, much less vegan and organic.

  7. i'm just saying, it's annoying. like why can't they just go all the way? i'm sure a good chunk of their customer base are vegans anyways.

  8. My Mighty O cherry was broken just this morning. We were at Sidecar for Pigs Peace, and the doughnuts were lounging there on the counter, looking all fresh and homemande. The kids each wanted one. "Of course", said I. The little one did not like the doughnut so it was passed my way. I intended to take a bite and then continue passing it down the line. Nope, ate the whole damn thing.

  9. oh man. I WILL get to mighty-o-donuts someday. I mean hey, Seattle isn't far from southern California anyway :)

  10. Oh great, now I need to come up with the cash for another trip to Seattle.
    Mmm, pumpkin! Not normally my thing, but someone works for me in donut form.
