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

I try to minimize the number of doughnuts I eat, but I had to make an exception for Top Pot! All we tried were delicious, as was the coffee. Can't go wrong!

A little out of the way from the downtown hotels but worth the walk. Unique flavors and different takes on donuts. I got 2 donuts and it was more than enough. The prices are a little steep but you get what you pay for. Nice clean large place with plenty of seating. Staff was friendly. I would love if someone... More

We had heard many things about this restaurant and their donuts. We went right after opening on a Sunday morning. They had a nice variety, but all seemed to have been prepared much earlier. You could not smell anything cooking and nothing was warm. Appears they may have been made at another location. The one thing about donuts is knowing... More
