This a a real cool little donut place. Very funky and fun decor and very good donuts and coffee. I love their Apple Fritters.

“Best donuts in the area; possibly the state”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

For some reason finding a good donut is difficult these days. Most have little flavor and bad texture. In the gourment donut category I think Rocket blows away Top Pot in Seattle and Voodoo donuts in Portland. Really fresh and tasty; their buttermilk bar, or whatever it is called, is incredible. Be sure to get there early for the best donut selection. Prices are low, coffee is good, and the donuts are fantastic. Try the maple bar with bacon. And the breakfast burritos are actually pretty good.

“Bacon Maple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

The best Maple Bacon Long John I have ever had. A throw back to the 50's.

“Stay away unless you want to get hooked!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

I've never been a big donut eater but once I needed to kill some time downtown and wandered into the shop. Now I wish I never had as I am hooked on their Buttermilk Bars. OMG I've never tasted such a wonderful donut. They open at 6:30 am in the morning. Parking can be a little tricky; there are a few metered spaces in front and three "reserved" 20-minute free spaces in the very tiny parking lot next door.
