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.

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.
