Top Pot Doughnuts began in Capitol Hill and has grown in popularity through the years. Through these years, they’ve added a variety of different doughnuts – over forty and counting. They switch them out seasonally. The Top Pot location I visited was closest to Pike Place Market. This location is mostly a grab and go type place with little seating.

While we were waiting for our food nearby, we decided to grab half a dozen here. We ordered the Salted Caramel, Boston Cream, Sprinkle, Apple Fritter, Raspberry Filled and Maple. The apple fritter was deliciously dense, crispy on the outside and just the perfect amount of doughiness. The maple is perfect for those who love the taste of maple. The crispy exterior and cakey old fashioned density is fantastic.

Overall, I was impressed with these doughnuts. They have interesting flavours but nothing too ridiculous, just a well made, kick ass doughnut – and isn’t that what we all deserve?
