“Doughnuts done well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

With kids, it's hard not to stop at chocolate stores and pastry shops. Where doughnuts are involved, forget about it!

We stopped by Rocket 's mainly due to word of mouth and because of a great experience at Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland. While Rocket's was not Voodoo's, it was still a tasty diversion.

The doughnuts were fantastic! There was not the odd variety of Voodoo, but what they lacked in odd the wall variety, they made up for in taste! Delicious!

There are gluten free varieties and some other food allergy alternatives to compliment the regular bad-for-you choices too. The only negative I would say is that the fritters were a bit greasy. I like my food tasty, but this was a little much.

“Maple bars with bacon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This place rocks. I wish their smaller location on Samish Way still existed, because I loved to walk there from my house, but I guess it was a pretty lousy location for most folks.

The maple bars with bacon are my favorite of all time. If I have the choice, I never get donuts anywhere else. Their jelly donuts are also incredible! The apple fritters are tasty and big, but give me quite the stomachache, haha. This place is a fun outing to take your kids after swimming lessons or soccer practice, or have a quick breakfast date, or even take your science-fiction-loving uncle. They have a quirky atmosphere and are always playing old sci-fi movies on the TV's inside.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

The coffee is fresh and hot and the apple fritter was huge and crispy! The staff is very energetic. Great experience.
