Birthday Gift for my Grandson

By far the best Donut Shop in the area! We introduce Ralph's Donut to everyone new. In fact, I was there early this morning getting a dozen Donuts for my Birthday Grandson!

Ralph's donuts is so good! First time there, you get a free twist. Everything I've had has been fantastic. We get mix and match dozens all the time.

Well I can not believe we made it to Ralph's Donut Shop in Cookeville, TN. We were driving from NY to Phoenix in our daughters Honda Fit I bought her, packed with what ever things she needed in the car for her relocation to teach in Phoenix.

If you ever get the chance to stop in at Ralph's, you have to try the twist doughnuts. There is no better. Every trip I make to Cookeville it is a must to stop in and get at least a dozen.

Always a great place for donuts and friends! Friendly environment and quality food! Lots of college kids usually found here, but locals frequent as well.

All pastries are good, but I really like the apple fritters, they are the largest fritters I've seen. Staff is very friendly. It's a local favorite so many of the same people return very often. The seating is counter space only. They also have drive thru. Since it's family run they are closed on Sunday.
