What to expect:

I almost thought I was walking into a Krispy Kreme! This place is modern and very clean and open. The counter with all the donuts was so large that it was quite a bit taller than my head and I had to stand on tiptoe to see the donut employee behind the display case. Donut Factory has so many different choices! I had high expectations for the crobar, their most popular and shop specialty, but thought the glaze overpowered the croissant dough. I couldn’t taste anything under that powerfully sweet glaze. I would not order the crobar again. Donut Factory celebrated their 2-year anniversay May 7th, 2016.


My favorite:

Out of the three donut shops in Lynnwood, I thought Donut Factory had the best glazed donut! The glaze was not a milky crystallized glaze, but a sticky, dewy, sugary sheen that tasted phenomenal. The dough itself was slightly sweeter than normal and complemented the glaze on top.
