White Center has a new fried dough destination as of today (August 23), with Good Day Donuts now open for business, per the Seattle Met.
It comes from Erik Jackson, a former head chef at Madrona Italian restaurant Vendemmia, along with his wife, Alison Odowski. The pair bought out Golden House Bakery and Deli on 15th Avenue SW — another doughnut store, meaning it’s been a fast turnaround, with Jackson only leaving Vendemmia earlier this summer.
There’s no official menu to peek at as yet, but Good Day’s Instagram reveals a few classics on offer, in the form of cinnamon twists, glazed cake doughnuts, and apple fritters, and of course, coffee, and according to the Met, ice cream.
Good Day will reportedly beef up its offerings with more breakfast and lunch items in the works for next week.
The doughnutterie will likely play host to more than just doughnuts — back in June, Jackson suggested that pop-ups might also happen in the space. In particular, that would be the Rough Draft dinners he has hosted in conjunction with Aaron Wilcenski of Wallingford tavern Burgundian, and Nick Jarvis of the Carlile Room on Pine Street — but none are scheduled quite yet.
