My newest sweet fetish

And it's not even donuts. It's their cinnamon rolls! For those of you who love gobs of thick frosting, they've got that, but for people like me who prefer simplicity they actually made a scaled back version without the frosting but just a thick top layer of chopped nuts. SO GOOD! Every... read more

If this is your first time to Bellingham, or even if your a local who hasn't made it in yet Rocket Donuts is the place to go! They have any and every kind of donuts you could think of, great staff and an amazing atmosphere. Who doesn't love hanging out in a room full of props from 1950's Horror/Sci-fi movies!?... More

We stopped by here on a road trip. Much to my surprise they had a doughnut that was not only gluten free, but also vegan. While for breakfast I think I still might take one of Seattle's Mighty-O donuts over the Rocket donut, after a meal, the Rocket donut might be the winner. Both are moist, tasty, and have a... More

Pre-vegan, I was a frequent Rocket customer. I can attest that their standard donuts are creamy, light and super yummy. The only complaint I had was the crullers, which are a miss. If you've ever had an authentic French cruller you'll understand that Rocket's version doesn't come close to the light, airy, dreaminess that a cruller can be. Now that... More

I was intrigued by this place because of their awesome stainless steel looking rocket out front along with a trick mural depicting days of old. Then I parked out front on the street side and went in for a big surprise. The donuts, especially the blueberry and the apple fritter were delectable and light. This was a fun experience.

We love and laugh with our yummy donuts at Rocket... creative and delish. We always buy a monster donut just because we can ;-) and wow it is so good. Enough to share for 6 or more, unless you are married to my husband! The staff are cute and helpful, a great area to antique shop and walk about town... More

This donut shop has a big rocket statue outside & a cool mural on the brick wall. I had a maple bacon donut and coffee, my son had a raspberry jelly donut, no drink. The donuts were pretty good, the bacon was rather tasteless though although I was surprised at how well the 2 went together. The jelly was very... More

This would be a disaster if we lived close by. The bakery items are beyond belief. We bought a donut each the first day and three different one each the second day so we could have them back in our condo for dessert, breakfast, any excuse.

Very fresh donuts with many choices. We enjoy donut of the month. Hard to find parking in Fairhaven location. Less donut options at end of day, go early for best selection
