All reviews doughnuts apple fritters peanut butter and jelly cake great donuts red velvet melt in your mouth hometown feel tennessee tech drive thru cookeville area my favorite twist dozen glazed creme staple
I almost hate to say the service wasn't great, because there were two young men working the evening I went in. The guy that helped me seemed like he hardly wanted to be bothered. However, the other young man was helping another group that was...there and I listened to all of his recommendations, because they were great. He seemed so much more interested in his job and the customers. Had he helped me instead, my review might be very different.
I like donuts, but I wouldn't say I'm a donut fanatic as some people are. The donuts were good. I liked that they were not sickeningly sweet as they are in some places and they had a good variety of flavors available.More
Now famous it seems and always a must stop for us anytime we are close, ok within 40 miles or so. Butter Twist is a family favorite and any other donut or pastry they make. Seasonal Old fashion Salted Carmel, was available this visit and...a good recommendation by the staff.
Family owned and operated. Very friendly and clean. They also have seated counter service and hot coffee.More
Stopped here on recommendation from a friend, so glad we did! They are the freshest donuts ever; even at 3 pm in the afternoon. So tasty and a wide variety to choose from. The drive thru was doing the business, but they also had limited...sit down available inside.
Wish they had labels on the different varieties; we had to keep asking what different ones were and it seemed to annoy the guy at the counter.
In any case, if you’re in the area, it’s a must stop. If it’s out of your way, find a way to make it on your way. You won’t be disappointed.More
We came to cookeville to stay the night, and found this donut shop while exploring the town. It was so busy - even in the early evening! We decided to go inside instead 9f using the drive-through. We were greeted by a very friendly and...knowledgeable staff member that explained the diffrenet donuts to us, and made recommendations. He was spot on. The donuts were fantastic, especially the butter twists that this little place is apparently well known for. Would definitely swing back in if every driving through this part of the state again.More
We had heard about this donut shop on TN Crossroads tv show and wanted to try it. So much fun. “Tiny” graciously packed a sampler dozen for us and made our day! All of them were fresh and tasty but we really like the lemon...and the butter twist! We’ve never seen a shop like this with such consistently high ratings but now we know why! 5 stars deserved. Reasonably priced and delicious!More
Ralph's Donut shop is rated one of the best in the Country. In my own opinion, Granny's Donuts in Bozeman, Montana, serves a better donut, but only by a hair. These are really, really great donuts and I highly recommend them.
I had a chocolate...donut with chocolate icing first. The donut cake was moist and flavorful and the chocolate was smooth and appropriately sweet. My wife had a creme filled with chocolate and yellow cake, which she said was the same. The creme filling was, she said thick and sweet. The next day I also had a yellow cake with chocolate frosting and coconut shavings. Even a day later it tasted fresh.
Ralph's is located in a repurposed building in Cookeville's downtown and provides counter seating. Ralph's offers coffee (of course) in addition to donuts and has a menu with a variety of types of deserts and other foods. We were there late on a Saturday afternoon and the cases were well stocked with a wide variety of donuts. Service was very fast and quite friendly. Ralph's is definitely a keeper!More
Best donuts in TN, possibly the world, but that’s just my opinion. I LOVE their butter twists and the red velvet and the blueberry cake. Honestly haven’t had a donut that disappoints from here. Their close competition is Big O’s but nothing tops the butter...twists.More
