Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts 5

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!

Skillet Street Food 3

I have been following Skillet for sometime now! So, when my friend, Thomas Schabarum posted on Facebook that Skillet was parked in his neighborhood last night for a private event, I knew it was time to spread the good word!

Not only do I appreciate the entrepreneurial nature in folks, but, I really love it when they mix the spirit with a vintage Airstream travel trailer. Hence, this post on Skillet Street Food founded by Josh Henderson in 2007. Josh and his Airstream are located in Seattle, Washington. Gosh, Josh ~ I so wish you would come to Denver!! I’m drooling just thinking about his famous Kobe beef burgers and Fried Chicken Sammy shown below. Josh maintains the lunch specials on the streets of Seattle and in 2011 added a brick-and-mortar restaurant located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Skillet’s catering business has taken off ~ weddings, corporate and private events throughout the Pacific Northwest.  Or if you are really craving his Bacon Jam or Pumpkin Sauce, you can order on-line here. Delish! Can’t wait to travel to Seattle and my first stop will be Skillet!
