Top Pot–Capitol Hill

February 13, 2010

Top Pot would not leave us alone. Turn on the Food Network, it was there. Go to Starbucks, and their doughnuts are there. Search coffee shops online and they are there. This was a sign if I ever saw one. Not wanting to drive downtown we instead chose to stop at the Capitol Hill location. Again fate was on our side bringing us to the original location.

The streets were packed with cars and finding a spot to park was bit of a challenge, but we found one relatively nearby. Walking into the cafe it was easy to see the popularity of the place. A short line was backed up in frontĀ of the register and the tables were packed with people on laptops. Children ran in and out buying doughnuts for the weekend. The walls were lined with books.

Choosing my drink was easy, a carmel latte, but it was the doughnut selection that was hard part. The doughnuts were lined up in a window in front of the register. Each one looked better than the last. I choose the bull’s eye (glazed with jelly topping in the center) and R got an apple fritter. The barista threw in her favorite, a blueberry cake, since it was our first visit. The coffee was good, but the doughnuts blew me away. Thank god that I don’t live near a Top Pots otherwise I would be in trouble. This is one place that more than lives up to the hype.
