After seven weeks of popping up in Ballard's Cupcake Royale, Rodeo Donut has just announced it's there to stay permanently, and is also setting up shop in the Capitol Hill Royale starting this Friday, June 5 (which is, deliciously, National Donut Day). Hit either store on Friday for free Stumptown coffee with a donut purchase to celebrate: Ballard opens at 7 a.m., Capitol Hill at 8.
Rodeo's brioche donuts are the brainchild of Cupcake Royale's Head Baker and Chief Operations Officer Nicki Kerbs and her team. They run from $2.50 to $3 with six flavors rotating daily at each, including orange blossom honeysuckle, whiskey maple bacon, preserved lemon, and more. Hello, donut summer.
