Jerry is the only place in Rapid that has homemade donuts . A must if you want great pastry. Locals gathering place for years . Celebrating good eats and friends.

Every donut that we tried was amazing. They didn't have the fake flavor-y tastes like supermarket donuts have, these were the real deal. Try the maple bacon long john. Fantastic. You won't want to try anything else.

I ordered a chocolate creme filled long John (a family fav) and it was great. The dough was light and fluffy and the light creme was perfectly sweet. The atmosphere isn't fancy or anything and is the local retired people hangout in the morning. Donuts are the best but they also have baked goods from cookies to decadent wedding cakes.

Tremendous choices. Unfortuneately, by the time you stand in line it is hard to know just what they are.Its hard to see all the choices as a tourist. The locals know. Ate there twice.

I get it the community thinks Jerrys is awesome but have you actually looked around while standing in line?? It isn't hard to make a good donut but it is work to create a good establishment to eat at, and they have epically failed. Summer of 2013 I walk into Jerry's to a long line in the AM before work...

Thanks for being open so early so we could get an early start. The coffee was strong, flavorful and hot - which fit all three of my requirements. I also like plain donuts which were also quite good and had just enough vanilla flavoring.

Second visit to Rapid I knew I was coming back to Jerry's. Wonderful hometown service and phenomenal doughnuts. Definitely stop in!

When you walk into Jerry's Cakes and Donuts, what you see is what you get. Good coffee, excellent donuts, and great service. I've been in a number of times throughout the years, and all of my experiences were the same. What I wanted to highlight, and why I gave Excellent instead of Very Good for my rating is one critical... More

I ordered a half sheet cake and said I would bring in a picture later. Swamped with life I was unable to bring it in for a few days. Rather than call the phone number I provided they simply cancelled the order. Ruined birthday plans, will never use this shop/service again. Donuts are average at best.

Pretty good donuts. Good variety in flavors. Very fresh donuts. It looked as though there was a diner/cafe but I walked right in to the pastry counter. Parking was convenient in the front.
