We stopped by Top Pot Coffee & Doughnuts while visiting Seattle. They had great coffee - similar to Dunkin Donuts. The donuts were good, much better than your standard chain doughnut shop. BUT the donuts were $2.65 each! Granted they did have a very cleaver...More

These donuts are cooked in specially made pots, could be copper, and made with special ingredients and taste unlike any donuts I've ever had! The champion of donuts in Seattle! Way better than Tim Hortons, Krispy Kreme and dunkin donuts! These don't even compare!

We had the blueberry fritter because she said they used fresh blueberries and there is a lot of blueberry flavor but the fritter itself was kind of dry and not good. Maybe the cake and buttermilk versions are better. Very friendly service.

Good coffee, excellent doughnuts, and friendly, professional service. If you walk back from the Needle, it is a good stop and you can watch the monorail from one of the outside tables.Well worth a visit!

We entered the store and there were countless small gnats (fruit flies?) in the display case all over the donuts, Disgusted so much by this we pointed them out to the server and left due to sanitation concerns

I go to this Top Pot Donuts often. I am never disappointed. The quality of the donuts is very consistent. Normally I buy my donuts here and get my coffee elsewhere, but that's just me.

Donut I picked was dry. The guy serving us was rude and upright, even though we were the only ones coming in. Get it together, tourists make your business!

Top Pot, the original store had a wonderful selection of books that I enjoyed. The doughnuts themselves were good. Their cake maple doughnut was not too dense and was just sweet enough. I was hoping for a wow moment, and I got it. Just with...More
