Rick's made my wedding cake and groom's cake, which were excellent. Their lunches are good. The sausage rolls, apple fritters and petit fours are my favorite. There is a gift shop.

When we're in Fayetteville for ballgames or to visit family we regularly stop by Rick's Bakery for breakfast. They have a huge selection of pastries, cookies, cakes…you name it, they probably have it. It's also a great place to buy cookies and sweets if you're tailgating before a football game. Our grandkids and their friends love their Razorback cookies. Stop... More

This place had been around for as long as I can remember, and I'm also 30 yrs old. It's such a quaint little bakery. Plenty of options for breakfast and lunch. My gorgeous and delicious Italian cream wedding cake was made her 8 years ago. My little boy who is 4 just loves to come here for a sweet treat.... More

It's not just a bakery. Great lunchtime sandwich place. Also, a super decorated cake venue. You'll enjoy watching the decorating "on the glass." Oh, and it's a gift shop too.

Mom's 90th birthday was even more special with a cake from Rick's. Everybody came back for seconds! Italian Cream Cake is their best, but the carrot cake is pretty darned good, too!

The employees at Ricks make it a great experience, they are always so friendly and helpful. I do not frequent the typical coffee shops, preferring to buy the ingredients and make my own coffee. Ricks was kind enough to sell me a Torani Butter Pecan Syrup (one of the big bottles that I put my own squirt pump in) so... More

Rick's is the best bakery in town. I've never had anything there I didn't like. Their donuts and pastries are fantastic, and my favorite is their sausage rolls. I will say I've never had their on-premises coffee. Their variety of products is always awesome, and they also make some of, if not the best, wedding and birthday cakes in town.... More

My Grandaughter, Alex has talked about Ricks for 2 1/2 years, and I finally got to visit Ricks in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It was an amazing experience to see all of the cakes decorated and waiting to be picked up. The decorators were encased behind a viewing window for visitors to watch the magic. People were eating lunch, shoppers were able... More

I highly recommend Rick's for snacks and meal options. Breakfast there is always good. But their treats and lunch items are so delicious too. Probably the best thing about the entire experience is the wonderful staff team that makes up this wonderful family owned business.

Hands down- the best bakery in NW Arkansas. Having lived in NWA for many years I went to Ricks several times a week. The cookies, cupcakes, and breakfast items were ALWAYS a huge office hit. The cakes and decor are outstanding. I moved from the area a few years back, and have recently moved close to the area again. I... More
