I stopped in to grab a few donut goodies for myself and some to use as bribery for a business transaction later. The quality is always good and the staff are friendly and fast. Wish I could eat donuts more often but alas they catch up with the scale.You won't be disappointed.

Home grown version of your typical donut shop. Prices are reasonable, donuts are plentiful, and they have a drive-thru. The lobby is small, but the service is quick. The place is always busy, which is a good indication of the local community support for a family owned business.

I haven't lived in the area that long, but this place came recommended. I was haooy to find it is on my walk route to and from work. Nice little shop, has a drive thru. The price for the size of the donuts can't be beat! One of my favorites is the bluberry glazed.

Was not sure about this place at first. I thought it would be just your average donut shop, but I was really surprised. This has to be one of the best donuts I have had in a long time. Awesome!

Well today I finally stopped at the House of Donuts of Lakewood, WA. My wife had bragged about it for several years. She got an Apple Fritter. It was very good; more like a rolled pastry than the normal free shape an apple fritter usually is. Great apple taste and fresh. I ordered a Marionberry Scone. It looked more like... More

News Flash!!! House of Donuts closed for about a month for the transition to a new owner. He updated a few things, but retained the most important aspect of this Lakewood landmark: The Outstanding Donuts! The same recipes are in play every day, and the quality hasn't slipped even a fraction. I picked up two dozen assorted pieces of awesome... More

Okay, I'm a retired cop, and one of the deals 25 years ago when I worked out of the local precinct was if you were late to roll call for dayshift, you had to by a box of donuts for your squad at House of Donuts. Big, yeasty, warm glazed pillows of awesome, which filled the place with an almost-erotic... More

Go for the maple bars and the scones. This place is known for the best donuts around and that is not far fetched at all.

If you like a sweet, sugary treat, you cannot go wrong here. I had the maple covered fried cake; Mom had lemon. Both of us were saying these are the best donuts ever, and we're sugar-holics with donut experience on both coasts. BEST EVER!
