King Donuts began as a Rainier Beach donut-teriyaki-laundromat in 2003. Founders Chea Pol and Heng Hay first created their mash-up of breakfast-meets-lunch-meets-chores to fill gaps in the neighborhood. And when Hong Chhuor and his family took up the reigns at King Donuts 14 years later, he promised to keep meeting those practical community needs.

In 2023, the Chhuors moved the business south on Rainier Ave, where they are still serving up French crullers, cinnamon sugar twists, maple bars, and more.

  1. I love that this place is a combo of donuts, teriyaki/thai and a laundromat! You can do lunch/break while waiting for your laundry to finish! The donuts here are crazy good, I really enjoyed the crueller. Their teriyaki also delicious and huge portion.

  2. I’ve been here before! It’s LGBTQ and Khmer owned!! And the donuts are super fluffy and to die for!!

  3. The donuts are really good, my former manager used to ride his bike into work and King Donuts was along his bike path. He would make a stop and bring in 2 boxes of donuts to share with our team.
