I got 6 donuts. I had a Cinnamon, Seattle Seahawks(Vanilla), Choc frosted Long john, Choc donut, apple fritter, and a Oreo. The apple fritter was the best. The cinnamon, Choc and Seattle ones were a close 2nd. The Choc. Long john and Oreo were the worst by far. I can't remember what it cost but it was expensive IMO.

I was staying at a nearby hotel for a night and wandered into this store. The apple fritter was fantastic! We were there early on a Sunday morning, and there was no one else in the store but the employees, but I can imagine it getting busy later in the morning.

I find myself going back on a regular basis. Some of the best doughnuts in town are found here. This is a nice location on Capitol Hill, you can sit inside or out. It gets very busy on weekend morning.

It's a cute little space with chairs along one wall and the counter against the other. I was a little surprised that there wasn't more of a selection but I have to say that the items we tried were delicious. I has a salted caramel old fashioned and a maple bar. The bar was light and fluffy and the maple... More

We loved the doughnuts so much that we ordered more and will come back tomorrow. Tea and hot chocolate are excellent too. Service very friendly and more authentic than the ones from the great competitor, great Wifi.

Love love love their doughnuts when fresh! The cake doughnut with icing and sprinkles with a cup of coffee is a Sunday morning dream. This is my go to place for celebratory doughnuts for work - none other will do. Love their 5k - run for a doughnut and a great t-shirt. Customer service is incredibly hit or miss. Therefore... More

This is my favorite branch of the Top Pot lot: the smallest, the sweetest. Next door to its cousin, Sun Liquor....Why, I could exercise all my vices in very few steps! Nosh on old school donuts, sip an Ovaltine latte, laptop camp.... It feels very "old" Seattle and reminds me of cafes my grandparents would take me to downtown. The... More

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 color coding system to identity the price for the doughnuts. In the end... three coffees... 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!
