Ordered a Italian Cream Birthday Cake for a friend's 75th birthday. The cake looked beautiful and had Gold decoration. The cake was 4 layers with 3 layers of rich cream cheese icing and then decorated with the icing and toasted coconut and nuts on the sides. It was about $35 and it was according to all in attendance "the Best... More

We got into town too late to try this on the first day of our travels--so glad we took the time to go the next day. It was well worth going out of our way. We tried a blueberry danish, petit fours (with Hogs on them, of course), a peach turnovers, a plain croissant, fudge, and cake donuts. All were... More

Attended a child's cake frosting birthday party which was very fun thanks to good friends BUT the people who ran the party were grumpy, miserable and just plain rude. If you plan to enjoy your company while eating here, try to avoid staff involvement. Or just order to go. But do organize a party on the premises.

Rick's is a classic bakery. Stunning variety, fast service, amazing smells as soon as you walk through the door. Often very busy. This is a local favorite!!!! Highly, highly, recommended.

Every Saturday morning, you will find us at Rick's. And every Saturday we get the same thing...yes...it is that good! We both get a Bismark donut filled with whipped chocolate icing. This is absolutely the best ever. The smells in this bakery are oh so wonderful. If only they could make a low-fat, low-calorie version of all their wonderful confections.... More

Walking in here I felt like an adult in a candy store. Cake, cookies, pastries, everything! It almost felt like a carnival type atmosphere. Plus they also have a coffee shop and you can get special occasion baked goods. I got a piece of white wedding cake. The cake was so moist and delicious! Yum!

Rick's bakery is known for their Razorback decorated iced sugar cookies and delicious cakes. They also have bakery breakfast items (muffins, donuts, etc.). Can be hard to get in and out of (located on College) especially on a game day. You will not be disappointed!

Obviously, not the place to go if you are trying to avoid sugar or carbs but if you want good donuts you can find a better place! They have cakes and all kinds of other things but I just know they have the BEST donuts. Personal fave is blueberry cake

I've heard people talking about Rick's bakery for years but I really felt like everyone was just making a big deal out of nothing. A cake is a cake. Not so. We decided to go ahead and get a Rick's cake this year for my daughters birthday and WOW what a difference. First they do look better but they taste... More

This past February I gave Rick's the opportunity to make a VERY special birthday cake for my husband. The year we had just been through left us unsure if he would even see this birthday. It was his 64th and it was coming close to our 28th anniversary. Being Beatle's fans forever I had an idea I knew he would... More
