Top Pot in Bellevue

M is a man with many different talents, and one of them is spotting fun new places to try. On a recent weekend, we were in downtown Bellevue with The Nieces, and M had a brainwave. What about a visit to the new Top Pot doughnuts? Of course we all thought that sounded like a most superior suggestion, so off to Top Pot we went. What a nice way to spend some time on a Sunday morning! The pleasant cafe is exactly like the one in downtown Seattle, and it makes a great place to meet up with friends or family. The doughnuts are, of course, divine, and everyone was quite happy with their picks. My only complaint was the strangely herbal tasting chai, but you can't expect to win them all. We will certainly be back on another Sunday morning. Hopefully this will be a morning right before a day of hiking.

Thanks for crossing over the lake Joy! Glad you enjoyed Top Pot. Their donuts are great - I'm not a tea person, so I don't know about that.

I've been to a networking event there for the Bellevue Entrepreneurs Meetup group and I really liked it.

It's great to see so many places that were once only Seattle specific restaurants and coffee shops now extend into Bellevue! Although their are many currently open (El Gaucho, Blue C Sushi, Top Pot, etc.) there are many more opening soon such as Purple Cafe, Wild Ginger, Barrio and more.

I agree Michael, but equally impressive are the many businesses that have started here in Bellevue and continue to thrive.
