Delight, donut lovers: Green Lake favorite Mighty-O Donuts is coming to Ballard at 17th and Market in late July. In the new 2,500-square-foot shop, expect the same beloved vegan pastries sold all over town, but with an exhibition bakery where the public can watch the magic making, according to founder Ryan Kellner. Kellner opened the first Mighty-O cafe in 2003, and has brought on the International District's ZeroPlus to design the Ballard location into what he calls "a more community-friendly space" than the original, with the neighborhood's maritime roots and a touch of the industrial in mind.
Expect about 50 seats inside and 8-16 outside, and potentially more if Kellner is able to install a parklet. Hours aren't finalized yet, but will be similar to the Green Lake store: Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
