Best non-Kristy Kreme in Cookeville! They do have a better variety than Kristy Kreme. This is the oldest and best in Cookeville. They were also in the top 20 in the country list.

Ralph's Donut Shop is located on Cedar Street in historic WestSide in Cookeville Tennessee. If you haven't eaten a donut from Ralph's you haven't eaten a good donut! They are the best! My favorite is the glazed blueberry cake donut.

Wow! Who would've thought that there would be a crowd at a small town donut shop located sort of off the beaten path? Well, there was and with good reason! This place has a great selection of all the donut shop goodies you might want....More
