Top Pot Doughnuts | The Best Doughnuts in Seattle

Top Pot Doughnuts | The Best Doughnuts in Seattle

Are you looking for the best doughnuts in Seattle? Well, you came to the right place. We have the answer. It’s Top Pot Doughnuts! With several locations around the area (including spots in Mill Creek and Bellevue), you don’t have to look far for a good, quick breakfast.

As part of our Seattle staycation last summer, Tove and I made a commitment to do as the tourists do in the Emerald City. We went to the top of the Space Needle, ate at The Crab Pot, and even saw a concert. We always heard rave reviews about Top Pot Doughnuts, so we figured it was a perfect time to try them as well.

Tove and I went to the Top Pot Doughnuts on Queen Anne (325 W. Galer). The store has a cool, vintage feel. That’s because Top Pot Doughnuts takes pride in doing everything “the old-fashioned way.” There was plenty of seating inside and out, plus our server was very friendly. She had plenty of patience with us as we decided which doughnuts to order (they all looked so darn good).

Tove and I finally pulled the trigger on a maple bar, a regular glazed doughnut, a filled/powdered doughnut (I don’t remember the name — I just remember that it was messy) and a Raspberry Bulls-Eye (a glazed doughnut filled with — you guessed it — raspberry). All four doughnuts were great, but the maple bar was easily our favorite.

NOTE: I thought this was cool — Top Pot Doughnuts have ZERO trans fats. I don’t eat doughnuts very often, but I can’t imagine too many other doughnut shops offering that in Seattle or anywhere else. Heck, you can even make Top Pot Doughnuts at home now too.

There are more than 40 doughnuts on the Top Pot menu, so that means we only had a small sampling of what’s available. On top of doughnuts, they also serve coffee and ice cream at Top Pot Doughnuts. That’s all the more reason (not that you really needed more reasons) to go back to Top Pot again…and again…and again.
