Best Donuts Around

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... read more

I literally drooled the first time I went here. When I left I called all my friends and family to tell them about my awesome find! Rick's has so many options! My friend and I go here every time she is in town. We order lunch and then sit in the viewing area and watch them decorate cakes. They also... More

I was just going to run in and grab some donuts and a small cake for my granddaughters birthday. We were on our way to Beaver lake for a camping trip. There was too much to choose from and was just amazed at everything that had a razorback on it. I'm an LSU fan but was actually tempted to jump... More

First, I need to get something off my chest. 10 years ago, rick's made my wedding cake. They were supposed to put fleur de Lis on the cake...instead I got corn. It really ruined my day. That said, I've given it so many chances since then but the quality of their cakes has slipped. I've moved on to Sweet D'z... More

Rick's Bakery is a bakery located close to downtown Fayetteville that offers a wide variety of sweets --everything from specialty cakes for weddings, elaborate birthday cakes to lemon bars and donuts. There is even a specialty section that has seasonal decor items, and in the cake room there is a large selection of balloons and other various party supplies. Good... More

Their cakes are beautiful and delicious. I picked up yesterday. They're pricier than Harps or Sam's but when you want to have a celebratory crowd pleaser with memorable photos, you won't be disappointed. For the every day, we order the sausage rolls and assorted pastries for the office. The coffee and teas always delicious.

This is the place to be early mornings in Fayetteville. Their freshly-made kolaches, doughnuts, and other treats are just to die for. The decor is kinda funky - stuck in the 80s - but the good pastries are worth it. BTW - I've gotten a cake for my son's birthday nearly every year of his life there. If that tells... More

I have had Rick's Bakery on multiple occasions, whether it's for a pastry, a petitfores, lunch, or many other treats. Not once have I ever been disappointed. Hands down, best bakery in Fayetteville.
