2019 has been a big year so far for the Underground Donut Tour. After forming in Chicago in 2014, the walking tour of donut shops in the city has gained in popularity in recent years. This year, the tour has been added to the cities of Philadelphia, New York City, Portland, and now, Seattle.
One of America’s largest cities and a place that is well-known for food excellence, Seattle was a natural landing spot for the fifth Underground Donut Tour.
“Seattle is famous for their coffee and their seafood, but what they should be famous for are their donuts! We're so excited to be able to share Seattle's donuts with the world,” says Jeff Woelker, founder of the Underground Donut Tour.
Starting Friday, May 3, tours will start in the city. Among the locations included on the tour are Top Pot Doughnuts and Dahlia Bakery. Guests will walk between these and two other donut shops as guides share the history of each location, local sights, and history along the route including Seattle Monorail, Belltown, The Space Needle, and Pike Place Market.
Tours run every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9-11 a.m. with more days coming soon. Tickets cost $30 for adults and $15 for kids 10 and under.
“The Donut Tour is a fun and quirky way to learn more about Seattle while enjoying our best and most delicious donuts,” says Amanda Agrellas, tour manager for the Underground Donut Tour Seattle.
