Pao's Donuts has been a constant staple in Tacoma, WA for many, many years. They have the best donuts I have ever ate! To me they are even better than Legendary Donuts. Granted they are not topped with bacon or anything like that, they are...More

Go early as they sell out! Good selection and ALL FRESH. A family business and you can tell as they take pride in the product. There are always a bunch of regulars having coffee and donuts. Small inside and that doesn't matter that means you...More
