When you need a chocolate fix this is the only place to satisfy your desire. Head out for chocolate frosted chocolate cake donuts or creme filled Bismarcks or just get both like I do. You can't miss. Give it a go!

There are times when nothing will due but a big, soft, sugary doughnut -- and at those times, House of Donuts in Lakewood is the place to go. Made fresh daily, these are little pockets of sweet goodness, and at a very reasonable price. This is our go-to spot for office snacks, weekend breakfasts, or church events. The best thing... More

This donut shop has been an institution in Lakewood many years before it was a city. They have the very best maple bars and cake doughnuts.

Love the maple bacon bars! The size of the donuts is amazing. Always packed though so be prepared for a small wait. The "we pick option for a dozen of donuts is not a disappointment either. All of them are yummy.

I have visited the House of Doughnuts many times since I moved to the Tacoma area. It is conveniently located very close to shopping, banks, and the Town Center Mall. That makes it all the easier to drop in for a calorie-laden delicious treat. These are the largest and most tasty donuts that I have ever eaten. Seldom will you... More

Worth the trip every time. Best donuts/doughnuts on the south end, which includes Tacoma, Portland, and California. Not for the sugar free types though, these are old-school treats but with a modern twist: Red velvet, PB and J, Bacon Maple Bars, etc. Love it.

I have heard for years how wonderful their donuts are. But I had not been until a few weeks ago. I was hosting a meeting with potential client and stopped by to pick up a couple of dozen assorted donuts. They were a huge hit at the meeting and everyone raved about how good they were.

If your driving through Tacoma on I5, this place is about a 15/20 minute detour off and back on the freeway. The doughnuts are fresh made every morning. Go early and they're still hot from the fryer. I stop through here every time I'm in the area.

Thank Joel B
