I have friends that swear the best place to get donuts in Tacoma is Le Donut at 1317 South 11th St., Tacoma, WA 98438. I went late in the day when their selection was lower, but still they had plenty. I walked out of the store with a controlled dozen donut holes and they were indeed very tasty. The building is hard to miss in a very bright yellow!
There is a new doughnut place in Tacoma, Legendary Doughnuts at 2602 Sixth Avenue. It opened about two weeks ago and every time I’ve been by they have had a crowd. But I went at an odd and relatively calm time and was delighted to see an old friend behind the counter! There was some confusion about my Groupon coupon, which said it had been used, but really, truly hadn’t been! Anyway, after we established my trustworthiness I ordered two dozen creative, tasty and unusual doughnuts.When I saw the size of the box, I knew the folks at my job weren’t go to be able to eat all of them. But within an hour they were all gone! I’m sure I’ll be back. The term horde of locusts came to mind. And everybody seemed to think they were delicious!
