Best buttermilk bars around!

Everything is fresh and delish! The buttermilk bars are to die for....crispy and sweet with the perfect tang you expect. The cronut was full of jam and the holes were crispy! Mmmmm

We stopped in for some donuts for the road, they looked promising but were really hard to digest. Disappointing really, but nice rocket outside.

There is more hype about this place than there is flavor. I wasn't impressed with their donuts or their ice cream. Higher than average prices, less than average flavor, poor service, wait staff had no personality and were less than knowledgeable about the product they're selling. Didn't go back our last visit to Bellingham.

Yummy donuts and also the option for vegan donuts! They were delicious and reasonably priced. I loved the vegan donut with pink frosting and sprinkles.

Good donut shop downtown. They have an excellent selection. Besides the regular donuts I've seen gluten-free donuts here.

Had to stop in to see if the donuts were as good as I heard. They were alright. I actually enjoyed the coffee more.

Cute place. Good donuts. Kitschy place for a rainy day treat. Delicious maple bars and buttermilk bars. Picture shows logo and treat.
