Birthday Cake from Ricks

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... read 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

I ordered some cookies for Christmas with my children! When I went to pick them up they were the wrong ones. They offered me six, cheaper and smaller cookies for the mistake, I still paid full price for my wrong order but it was delicious anyway. We will definitely be back and enjoy all the wonderful treats. We know Christmas... More

My wife's cousin got treats for us from Rick's on two trips to Fayetteville for football games this fall. We had cookies the first time and cupcakes on the second visit. Both were really good. It would be nice to have a bakery like Rick's in Mountain View.

This is my go to for birthday cakes, special occasions or just because I really want an excuse to eat something decadent. They have never disappointed when given a request for something that's a little out of the ordinary and the taste is absolutely out of this world. I live in Bella Vista and have no issues driving down to... More

My tongue was delighted! My sweet tooth ached with pleasure! We tried a sampling of 6 different cookies, one donut, one cream horn, one petit four and a cupcake. Everything was delicious. We sampled a little of each. I was delighted with the sugar iced cookies and got some more for the road. Their prices were reasonable. The shop was... More

Rick's is where the locals have gone for years for their cakes for parties or to mark special occasions. It's also a popular "coffee klatch" spot - friends who've been gathering for years to solve the world's problems over hot coffee and perhaps a pastry or sausage roll. The breakfast service is efficient and fast, and everything I've ever eaten... More

This bakery will make you any cake you can think of. And they taste good too. Great place to come for pastries and coffee in the morning. Expect to stand in line.
