Local favorite as long as I can remember. Open early and 7 days a week! Great doughnuts, fast service.

*Cash Only* Tacoma has some great donut shops but Pao's is hands down the best. In an unassuming spot near Narrows Bridge you will find the best and biggest donuts in the area. From the old fashioneds to the glazed to the cruellers: perfection. Seriously,...More
