BIZNOTES: More signs of change

Two more window signs of note:

TOP POT DOUGHNUTS: When we reported a month-plus ago that Top Pot Doughnuts was returning to West Seattle, we noted that sources had told us the location would be the ex-Wildflour/Flying Apron spot at 4709 California SW. Thanks to Anne for the tip that proof has appeared in the windows today:

Our photographer talked to Top Pot employees working in the space today and they said they’re hoping to be open “in a couple months.” A company spokesperson told us by email “summer.”

PEARLS: We noticed this sign, and empty windows otherwise, while passing Pearls (4800 Delridge Way SW), and stopped for a closer look:

No further info so far. We’ve added it to our watch list for future reopening.

      Top Pot >>>>>Dough Joy any day. But for my son who’s allergic to egg, we still frequent Dough Joy often.

    Top Pot is great, but I’d love something to replace the beloved Lee’s.  I read a while back that the former owners of Lee’s now owns Snappy Dragon – a fab restaurant, featuring homemade noodles – YUM.  A second location in West Seattle would be ecstasy inducing, as I no longer have a fave lunch spot in the Junction.

      That would be wonderful.  Snappy Dragon is soooo yummy!

      Judy Fu owns Snappy Dragon, has since she opened it in 1993.

        Until she sold it to the Lee family last year. It’s easily searchable.

    Yesssss! We have been missing a cake-donut shop in west Seattle – dough joy is great but not for those who aren’t into the raised type.  Kids are gonna be happy!!!

    I hope Top Pot brings their soft serve ice cream machine to this location.

    • Laura May 30, 2024 (6:50 pm)

      Yesssss soft serve!!!

    Bring on Top Pot! Don’t like vegan anything so I’m happy to have this option 

    • J May 30, 2024 (8:55 pm)

      Have you even tried Dough Joy? They’re fantastic.

    • Walkerws May 31, 2024 (9:34 am)

      Don’t like vegan anything? So you hate apples? Pasta? Sourdough bread? Peanut butter? Oreos? Wow

      • buttercup May 31, 2024 (1:16 pm)

        Yep, no more Thin Mints, Fritos, Wheat Thins, Sunchips, or Skittles for them. 

  • Donuts May 30, 2024 (6:42 pm)

    Top Pot   – YAY!!!!!!!

  • Deodara May 30, 2024 (7:43 pm)

    Bill Lee of Lee’s is the new owner of Snappy Dragon.  I ran in to him at The New Leaf (one of my favorite places) recently and he told me this great news.

  • Sss May 31, 2024 (6:00 am)

    Snappy Dragon is fabulous but since Covid they are take out only. Ir would be cold by the time you get it home from Maple Leaf. I do miss it.
