For your sweet tooth!

Huge donuts and a very reasonable price. It is probably a good thing that we hadn't discovered them sooner!

I love donuts so was pretty excited to grab a few at Top Pot. Everything looked good and the staff was friendly but once I bit into the first one I was very disappointed. It was small and dried out and I thought it was maybe just a fluke but when I tried the second one, it too was dried... More

I'm not a big doughnut eater but these are the exception! They are huge and have every flavor you could want. The long johns are exceptionally big and delicious. Great customer service and a fun ambiance. A must go for breakfast or a snack.

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.
