    Got the old-fashioned chocolate donut, a hot chocolate, and a glazed classic. Delicious donuts but the atmosphere and building were perfect for a study/work place.

    Donuts-- done right. Buttermilk bar and Old fashioned are my favorites. Close second is the blueberry fritter. Grab an Ovaltine Latte and you will be in donut heaven.

    Tell them you have never ever had a donut before, and watch them scramble to explain the different types and try to cultivate a sales pitch for chocolate feather boas

    Highly efficient/friendly counter staff keep the crowd flowing. Must haves: anything maple and EVERYTHING old fashioned. Eat in and people watch inside and out the extensive glass windows. 😍👉🍩🍩

    Not to mention how huge it is, the Raspberry Raised Ring doughnut is by far the best doughnut I have eaten. While in Seattle you have to check this place out.

    Awesome "standards" like Bavarian Cream, Raspberry ring.. But I suggest trying their fun glazed old fashioned flavors like Pumpkin & Salted Caramel! So amazing. Plain coffee + salted caramel= heaven.

    Top Pot was supposed to be named Top Spot, but the "S" letter fall down on the street when the owners were moving the store neon board by car after they bought the place from a Chinese man.

    Cool atmosphere. Donuts were vast and plentiful. Fresh but I didn't think they lived up to the hype. Got the salted caramel and the raspberry frosted. 3.5/5

    The espresso is amazing. If you're getting beans to go, try the Federale! Doughnuts to try: maple bar, raspberry ring, glazed old-fashioned, chocolate ring, apple fritter, or a double-trouble.

    Can't go wrong with any choices here. Buying for a group? They have pre-made assorted boxes with the most popular donuts.

    The best doughnuts I've ever tasted in my life. If you like bacon grab the maple doughnut with smoked bacon on top - and wash it down with an awesome coffee. So much yes.

    I really enjoy the donuts here, my favorite being the chocolate sandcastle (chocolate donuts tossed with cinnamon and sugar)

    Yes there is a queue, but it moves fast. I loaded up on doughnuts during a stay at Hotel Five. The selection at Top Pot is vast and delicious. Highly recommend!

    Get the new maple bar ice cream. It even has chunks of the yummy doughnut inside! An affogato with this is amazing as well. Espresso over ice cream, yum!

    These are grownup donuts. The Maple Bar tastes like Sunday morning pancakes -- aka delicious and chewy. Also perfect, and not overly sweet: the Salted Caramel Old Fashioned.
  • Kristenelle
    One doughnut is filling enough for breakfast, but it's hard to resist ordering a half dozen since they all look so good. The old fashioned's are the best.

    Best local donuts ever! Their donuts have been featured on the Travel Channel, USA Today, and more! 40+ types! My favorite is old fashion. Monorail travels above Top Pot - it's walking distance!

    I always try to get the double trouble donut. Chocolate heaven. There are a couple coffee spots near by but hard to compare with this place.

    Apple fritter is delish. Get there early if you want the famous maple bar... they were out by 11:30am.

    Nice literary/coffee house feeling. A little pricey, but having a box of a dozen assorted lying around your hotel room is worth it.
  • Enrique G.
    Very tasty doughnuts, any flavor will do! One of the best to say the least!

    GREAT soy latte. They use the Pacific Natural's Barista Series soy milk; it's made to withstand high temperatures and makes beautiful foam.

    Make sure you grab a coffee with your donut. Then grab a stamp card because you know you'll be coming back.

    Did your brother bring you a Bavarian Cream Doughnut from Top Pot this morning? If not, you might want to shop around for a new one.

    Awesome apple fritters. Possibly better than the old fashioned doughnuts. Get one of each.

    Valley girl lemon or the bulls eye (glaze donut with a well of raspberry jam preserve. You won't be sorry. Until you dare to step on a scale. But even then... I'm sorry, I'm not sorry.

    The seasonal pumpkin spice donut is better than cake! Get several as a group so you can try different flavors.

    Old-fashion doughnuts are delicious, especially the pumpkin one (which is what Obama had!) Can't miss the ovaltine latte either; it's subtly chocolatey.

    This place is adorable and the latte is really good but the donuts aren't anything special at all. If I lived nearby, I'll probably grab one. It's good but not great.
