It was my first time and I will definitely go back again!

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.

I went to this place in the 1990's and have been back many times since while visiting the area. Always has the best buttermilk bars and other donuts.

Love coming here on Sunday morning to get a great selection of donuts. They have a huge variety and everyone is happy to let you try one if you are unsure of a variety. Very fresh and never stale,

Excellent freshly made donuts and other breakfast pastries (scones, cinnamon rolls, etc.). A nice treat for breakfast - everything is tasty and portions are generous.

These were great donuts. A very popular place, especially in the morning. They have a drive through for those who don't want to get out.

I live close and it's thee only place to get doughnuts. Period. Doughnuts is all they do. The maple bacon, or plain glazed are my favorites. They are hugh! Hot! Melts in your mouth.

Portland has Voodoo Donuts and Washington has the House of Donuts! This place is awesome and the donuts are delicious! Donuts don't have to be smothered in lucky charms to be good and this place proves it. Diabetics beware!
