I went a few blocks out of the way to stop for a donut because I had heard it was worth it. The store was nice and clean and had a nice atmosphere to it. The donuts look really good. The prices, though, are pretty high. It was $2-3 for a basic donut. The specialties were even more. I had... More

Very friendly staff, and a wonderful selection of doughnuts. I have to go at least once on each visit to Seattle.

My daughter and I decided we needed an afternoon snack and there happen to be a Top Pot Doughnut on our way, so we made a left turn into Top Pot and ordered a powdered sugar doughnut and a Bavarian cream doughnut. We both where very satisfied this afternoon.

Go here for coffee and donuts. Otherwise it is not a place to go. Sometimes a line but very friendly. I never rate this type of place higher than 3.

Love the donuts here = bought the grandkids gift cards so they could order their own donuts and hot cocoa.

Which ever Top Pot Doughnuts you choose you can't go wrong. If you live in the north end this is an excellent location. I often visit Magnuson Park and I often my a little detour to Top Pot for a chocolate cake donut. Yum!

The line is a continuous one. I think most go for the coffee as well as the doughnuts. Nice atmosphere, studious feeling. We got a few pastries as well as the doughnuts. Good, not great. But a fun experience nonetheless! VERY helpful employees and you feel no pressure as you peruse the items. The pressure comes from the feeling of... More

Went there because this was supposedly the # 1 donut chain in America. Very underwhelmed. Good but I've had a lot better. I asked the server what was their signature donut and she said well a lot of people like the maple bar. Really?

Loved the vibe of the place but the donuts were mediocre at best. We ordered cakes donuts and raised. Both were very dense and not very flavorful. My kids said our local grocery store had better donuts. Overall disappointing.

I used to live nearby and visited frequently, and I always come here whenever I am in town. I dreamed about it when I miss it. The beverage menu changed a bit over time, but the donuts are the killer ...I love all of them and they are orders of magnitude greater than all competitors in town. I also love... More
