Remember that time, earlier this year, when I drove my sister from Los Angeles to Seattle?
Remember… it was that time I ate my weight in Chex Mix and strawberry cheesecake.
Well! I’m headed back up to Seattle this week! There will be some serious sister time… and I’m dragging my Mom along too. I think we’re going to laugh for three straight days… then be on each other’s nerves for a day and a half. It happens that way sometimes.
Plans include: introducing my mom and sister to The Bachelorette tonight, drinking more coffee than necessary at every possible moment, hugging my sister’s head, meeting her new kitty Charlesbear and…. I dunno… do you wanna hang out? I’ll be at Top Pot… every Top Pot I can find. I’ll be the girl with a giant doughnut in my face. Keep your eyes peeled for that.
Photos of Charlesbear please!
being in seattle, as a baker, above all else, you MUST prioritize a visit to The Flying Apron, on Fremont Avenue.
also, if you go, you need to eat everything, especially the peanut butter and jelly cupcake.
I love Top Pot!
If have time, swing by Starbucks Headquarters, I’ll buy ya a coffee. :)
I just googled to see what Top Pot was and now all I want to do is drive down to Seattle to experience that wonderous place!!!

Have a great trip! I’ve always wanted to go to Seattle – especially for the coffee!
Enjoy your trip, Joy. I love, love, love Seattle. I wish I could fold myself up into your suitcase and tag along. In a totally not creepy way.

Have a great trip…
donuts and coffee are the very very best road trip companions…
Have a great trip!! I can’t believe they’ve gone this long without becoming ridiculously addicted to the Bachelorette!!
Coming to Seattle? I live pretty close by. I’ll tell them to set up the parade balloons for your arrival. :)
We’re in Seattle and love your blog. Guess we will have to hang out at Top Pot on 5th and hope to “run” into you! Oh and PS could you bring some sun with you? Ours has been a little shy this summer!
I was going to mention Frost donuts, too, but Alice beat me to it. They do Top Pot one better, I think. https://www.frostology.com/
(Salted caramel? Aztec chocolate [with cinnamon & cayenne]? Banana split fritter?! So wrong. Soooo right.)
Not to mention their bacon maple bars! Freaking amazing.
I’m new. I cannot read the faint and light coloured parts. Is it possible to change the colour of that list over left (and other light-coloured bits) to match your floor, or something like that?
Yes! That is definitely in the works!
Make sure you go to Pike Place and bring back lots of jam. Jam jam jam! Made from strange berries you’ve never heard of!
I wanna hang out! Let’s eat pancakes at the Coastal Kitchen in Capitol Hill and drink some Belgian beer/bourbon at Brouwers in Fremont, which also happens to be right next to Theo chocolate…You can’t go wrong with that magical combination of goodness. Yes, please?
You must go to Bakery Nouveau and get the twice baked almond croissant. your life will never be the same!
