Rocket Donuts have the freshest donuts and the best drip coffee in Bellingham, period! They also offer espresso drinks and hard ice cream (Acme). They are a sci-fi themed place with large aliens hanging off the upper deck, old sci-fi movies playing on video screens, '60's Rock and Roll songs on the sound system----what's not to like? They even have... More

Another reviewer asks what's so great about this place. Well, when you're allergic to gluten and nuts, and this place has a couple of different donuts that you can actually eat and taste good, that's what's so great. They had a couple of vegan donuts as well, but those were not gluten free. The rest of my family got the... More

only so much can be said about a donut.....didn't get the rocket ride while eating this one...the staff was very friendly ...it's a nice enough place to sit and have a good cup of coffee and watch people get their morning sugar rush ....

So I was taken here by someone who said that we just couldn't leave Bellingham without a Rocket Donut... I am SO glad that she did! I'm a purist and so ordered 2 glazed. Melt in your mouth goodness. I ate one right away and saved the other for later and both were equally as good. Words can't describe how... More

I love this place. The donuts are yummy and the coffee is delish! It is a regular spot on my visits to downtown. High quality and a spacy atmosphere. Check it out!

I was so looking forward to the opening of the Fairhaven site but it just doesn't have the charm as the Bellingham one does. I mean it is still very nice and tastefully done. Maybe it needs to be broke in still. The donuts are just as delicious and it is a fun place.

I admit I'm not a donut connoisseur like some but I thought these were every bit as good as any other premium donut I'd tried, and the crazy flavors were entertaining as well as delicious. Plus the shop was clean and the staff was friendly.

We visited the new Fairhaven store. Great donuts and friendly service. Super location and their standard unique decor. Coffee an ice cream also available. The glazed twist was excellent and one donut can be a meal by itself. We will visit again.

Stopped here on our way home to get donuts for the kids and ourselves. Very friendly people working there and entry of choices. Prices seem a little high and no choice on getting a dozen. They do however have a huge donut and a maple bacon bar.

Ok so I was craving a donut and we stopped at the Rocket Donuts. Cool location with a actual rocket outside to draw your attention to the location. Anyways, walked in and was surprised to see huge glazed donuts - about a foot across. See picture. They cost was reasonable at $3.99. They also sell larger than normal apple fritters... More
