However you spell it – doughnut or donut – it’s a scrumptious treat that’s hard to resist. Ring-shaped or filled, glazed or powdered – donuts are the original comfort food that can satisfy our morning, afternoon or evening sugar cravings. Craving one now? Flip through the gallery to discover our favorite doughnut shops. (Psst… they’re in alphabetical order because we couldn’t possibly rank them!)

Legendary Doughnuts

With five locations serving something a little different everyday, Legendary Doughnuts is a great place to indulge your sweet tooth. Red Tricycle readers recommend the Lemon Coconut, Captain Crunch (yes, topped with Captain Crunch cereal) and the Sleepless in Seattle (a chocolate cake donut with espresso frosting, topped with a chocolate covered espresso bean and chocolate shavings). Psst! Got a birthday party coming up or just a bunch of really hungry kiddos? Try the King Kong – a donut weighing over 11 pounds, topped with maple and bacon!

Good to Know: Get donuts delivered fresh to your door. Delivery is available from the Tacoma location. Call the store for details.
