The bakery is wonderful. Next time I'll try the savory stuff and the fudge. This time I only did the donuts and cookies. Very good! I bought a lot of donuts and cookies for less than $20. This is a local place as opposed to the chain and these folks seem to have been around for a while. Glad to... More

Every visit to Ricks is great! I hardly know the place anymore, really nice seating, display cases of every tempting pastry, this place has everything.

Ordered a carrot cake from Rick's for 93 year old grandfather. When we picked up the cake it was decorated in green and black!? The frosting was supposed to be cream cheese and butter but the flavor was margarine. The cake was dry and reminiscent of sawdust. We have ordered cakes before and they were good. When we called to... More

MUST TRY the chocolate brownies drizzled with caramel and the carrot cake cupcakes! Birthday cake was perfectly as I ordered and tasty as any of the individual desserts we've had too!

We were out of town guests wanting to take a dessert to a family dinner. They closed at 6pm and we ran into to a traffic jam. We called and asked them to wait a few minutes for us, and they graciously did. Our arrival time was 6:05. I'm sure they were in a hurry to get home, but we... More

I have always loved Rick's. We knew we'd be in town visiting around my daughter's birthday, so we ordered a cake from them. They were so nice, quick to respond and made the cake exactly like my daughter had drawn. That's why they get three stars. The cake was not good. We served it to 9 people and no one... More

If you can imagine the taste and the texture and the design, Ricks Bakery can bring it to life! Goes BEYOND eye appeal ... your tastebuds will bring you back time after time! Love this and the whimsical gift selections in the shop!

Had a catered lunch from Rick's bakery recently, and have to say, it was better than I had ever expected. This place hasn't really been on my radar because I thought they specialized in/did mainly sweets and cakes. Their sandwiches on homemade bread were out of this world! Will definitely be back for lunch from this restaurant.

This is a Fayetteville landmark. The donuts are to die for. I used to eat a cake donut every morning when I was in college, and I never got tired of them. They melt in your mouth like nothing else. The petit fours are little squares of legendary, melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. Could not recommend anything more. However, the other selections from... More
