Top Pot Doughnuts (Seattle, WA)

Downtown: 2124 5th Ave, Seattle, WA 98121, T: 206-728-1966
(There are four other locations in the greater Pudget Sound area)

Seattle is home to its own upscale donuts chain, Top Pot Doughnuts, which offers "hand-forged doughnuts" together with their own coffee and various trendy sandwiches. It is not really a pig-out spot, but rather a European-style cafe, but that doesn't mean you can't pig out there. ;-)

Top Pot offers a choice of some 40 different donuts, which are brought back to three categories: standard ($.99), premium (e.g. glazed - $1.49), and supreme (i.e. filled - $1.69). The donuts are not very original or radical, as at the Voodoo Doughnut, but they are roughly 1.5 times the size of those at Dunkin Donuts. I chose one premium (Cinnamon Sugar Frosted) and one supreme (Bavarian Creme), which were both really fresh and tasty. On top of that, the Americano was very good and affordable.

VERDICT: 81/100
True, Top Pot Doughnuts is not a real pig out spot. In fact, one of its biggest assets is its ambiance. However, the donuts are big and tasty and will easily make you eat more than you had intended.
