Fun Long-time Local Gem

The giant rocket sculpture outside is fun for the kids (and the rest of us.) Has old time monster B movies playing on small monitors in the seating area, and a big green alien-head tip jar. It was just recently remodeled, so the entire seating area is more accessible, while only compromising a... read more

My husband & I are always on the lookout for new donut shops. We stopped in while visiting Bellingham & were not disappointed. The staff was exceptionally friendly, too. My raspberry pillow was scrumptious as was the blueberry fritter we shared. I also tried a scoop of their vanilla ice cream and it was a delightful intense vanilla flavor. The... More

Rocket is a great little spot. For a guilty pleasure, go there and buy a half a dozen. You won't be able to eat them all but it is still fun to buy them. They have all sorts of creations. My favorite is the apple fritter. It is a huge piece of apple laden dough that is spread out and... More

Rocket Donuts had some super fresh donuts at 4ish pm after we spent an enjoyable visit to the Sparks museum nearby. I worked at a donut shop when I was in college and from then on I'm super picky and can only tolerate the freshest donuts. These met my standard. And cheap!

Love stopping by Rocket Donuts from time to time for a quick 'whatever' I feel like at the time. Acme Ice Cream pints available here and I love it. Anything you pick to eat here will be just fine. I do enjoy the old SciFi movies that they have showing, very Kitschy! Servers are always fun and helpful. I enjoy... More

Have you heard of Voodoo Doughnut in Portland? Have you stood in their crazy-long line for a donut? Want to experience that level of donut nirvana without standing in a crazy-long line? Then try Rocket Donuts. My coworkers and I take turns buying donuts for the office on Fridays and woe betide the office drone who doesn't show up with... More

A selection of sugared greatness awaits behind the glass wall. Selection is good, service is good, price is good. Donuts will make you happy!! Great for couples and kids that need a sugar infusion.

They have a wide variety of donuts to choose. Fun place to take the kids, it's small but clean. Prices are reasonable. Friendly staff.

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