They used to sell these up at Starbucks but that over now. They still good but not as cool. The dream is over.

Top pot has great espresso based coffees as well as fantastic doughnuts. It was nice to find such a great coffee house so close to our hotel.

Have a doughnut and coffee surrounded by shelves of book sets - see how many editions of the World Book encyclopedia you can see. And don't miss the movie-style poster of President Obama buying his own doughnut!

Donuts are the one sugary treat that usually doesn't attract me, but these donuts were definitely worth it. I loved the design of this restaurant. It was perfect for our breakfast while staying at the Pineapple just a block away. My only negative is that it was pretty expensive. Donuts and coffees for four of us were $40 at least.... More

Had to find a local donut shop and this was recommended. After my visit I can say these donuts are ok. The flavor is amazing, but boy are the donuts dense. Not greasy at all which is a big plus. I got a chocolate sprinkle and a chocolate glazed. Next time Id likely try the fritter. If I'm in the... More

Stopped at Top Pot because we have seen them recommended everywhere online. We got a seasonal pumpkin glaze, maple bars and bacon maple bars. First, I was amazed at how expensive the donuts were. Donuts have a huge mark up normally anyway, so these were even more. Second, we all sampled and none of us were impressed. I'm not sure... More

Had a chocolate doughnut and a sugar coated one. Both ok but quite dense and nothing exceptional. The place is nice but dont expect exceptional doughnuts.

As a slavish devotee of Voodoo donuts in Portland, I have a new love. Top Pot donuts. The donuts are insanely good, with a great range of styles and flavours. The donuts are dense but not heavy or gluey, there is no excess sweetness or greasiness to diminish the taste and the icings are to die for. Voodoo has the... More

Short wait in line to order my donut. The frosting on the donut trashed great but the donut itself (raised donut) was on the dry side like some visitors have mentioned. Might have been better if I had a drink to sip with the donut. Plenty of spaces to sit and chat with a friend.

Donuts were okay. Not worth the price. Got Bavarian filled and an apple fritter. Apple fritter was large and was decent. Bavarian was disappointing. Also got a cold brew, that was the weakest cold brew I've ever had. Will not be going back to Top Pot. Plan to try other doughnut shops. Place was cute and nicely decorated for Halloween.
