The House of Donuts has been a Lakewood icon since I was a little girl (45+ years). The donuts are light and fluffy, not greasy and huge! Excellent variety... the staff is always happy.

Have been going to this donut shop since elementary school. Fond memories of stopping here after church with the whole family. Fresh donuts daily and if you get there early enough, still warm. Huge variety and really yummy !

The cases are always full of tempting choices of some of the best donuts anywhere! The prices are reasonable and I always buy more than I should. The classics are all there along with some new and tempting choices.

Fresh donuts daily, excellent service always and a large variety to choose from. If I were traveling on I-5 and wanted the ultimate and best donut around, I would google The Original House of Donuts. It's only a few minutes away.

This is hell for diabetics and heaven for everyone else. Lots of temptations that are absolutely delicious at very reasonable prices. Friendly service. Warm fresh scrumptious doughy goodness abounds. The chocolate cake donuts may be addicting. Enjoy

this place has been here since I was in high school and I have enjoyed them off and on over the years. I like the classics - plain cake donuts, maple bars, you get the idea... they are made with care as are all the "fancies". not a sit down place, plenty of grab and go parking. Not many landmarks...
