Thanks to my friend Monica B. of Just 5 More Minutes for sharing this photo on Facebook of an Airstream inside a doughnut shop in Bellevue, Washington.
Of course, being the Airstream nut that I am, I had to investigate. Low and behold, I discovered Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts in Seattle, Washington. I contacted the company to inquire about their nifty doughnut topped Airstream and Mark Klebeck, Co-Founder responded and sent me two great pics and some info to share with you. The Top Pot Doughnuts have been described as “Designer Doughnuts” by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine and many more accolades have been written about these sugary delights.
“Two travel trailers that we have made use of! My brother Michael who I co-founded the company with spent time refurbishing the exterior/interior to allow the trailers to function as mobile cafes. A lot of custom work went into each of the trailers with the majority of time put into metal work. We salvaged as much of the original look and feel and made modifications only to make each function on a day-to-day basis.
The first is a 1962 Airstream Bambi. The trailer is primarily used for special events around the Seattle area. This is currently equipped to sell doughnuts, espresso and drip coffee.”
The second is a 1947 Vagabond Trailer. Currently this is parked in front of McLendon Hardware in Renton Washington. It also is equipped to sell coffee, doughnuts and espresso.
So, the next time you see a doughnut on top of an Airstream while you’re bopping around Seattle ~ it will be worth your while to experience the delightful Top Pot Doughnuts and some freshly brewed java to make your day extraordinary!
