Best chocolate glazed donut

I went on my own self guided tour of donut shops in Seattle on my last trip. The chocolate glazed donut was to die for. The quality of the cake donut was top notch and there was no shortage of glaze which is always the best!

Absolutely heavenly doughnuts served in this cafe-nervosa type eatery a few blocks from the Space Needle. The lunch was great too- although I can hardly member it alongside those doughnuts. High recommend for a great lunchtime treat

Totally amazing doughnuts. There are so very few mom and pop doughnut places anymore. The chains (i.e. Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts, etc.) don't have anything on these local places. The ambiance in this doughnut shop was amazing. It is a converted car dealership. It felt like a cozy library. The doughnuts were so delicious. There was nothing fancy just plain... More

We love Top Pot! Every time my main manager comes over from our corporate office in Seattle, I kindly request she brings these donuts. Every time we visit family in Seattle, we try and make it to top pot for our breakfast one day of the visit. The donuts are the best I've ever tried, the atmosphere is always chilled,... More

We had heard about this place from a lot of locals hanging out in our hotel. We decided to give it a try on one of our morning walks and it definitely deserves all of the recommendations. It's in a nice location of the trendy area of Seattle. Looks a little like a library when you first walk in. There... More

Donuts were wonderful, especially the seasonal pumpkin donuts and the cinnamon old fashioned. Coffee was not as desirable.

From the outside, you appear to be stepping back in time. The decor inside is just as cool and the jelly donuts are soooo yummy. My friend and I sat at a table by the window and chatted and people watched as the monorail whizzed by every few minutes. Put it on your list of places to wander to if... More

A trendy little place that has several locations across Seattle. The coffee and other drinks are great, but the real reason to visit are the doughnuts and other treats. Be prepared though: they are highly addictive and I think I got diabetes after my second visit. I am already looking forward to my next visit to Seattle so I can... More
