Rocket Donuts had some super fresh donuts at 4ish pm after we spent an enjoyable visit to the Sparks museum nearby. I worked at a donut shop when I was in college and from then on I'm super picky and can only tolerate the freshest donuts. These met my standard. And cheap!

Love stopping by Rocket Donuts from time to time for a quick 'whatever' I feel like at the time. Acme Ice Cream pints available here and I love it. Anything you pick to eat here will be just fine. I do enjoy the old SciFi movies that they have showing, very Kitschy! Servers are always fun and helpful. I enjoy... More

Have you heard of Voodoo Doughnut in Portland? Have you stood in their crazy-long line for a donut? Want to experience that level of donut nirvana without standing in a crazy-long line? Then try Rocket Donuts. My coworkers and I take turns buying donuts for the office on Fridays and woe betide the office drone who doesn't show up with... More

A selection of sugared greatness awaits behind the glass wall. Selection is good, service is good, price is good. Donuts will make you happy!! Great for couples and kids that need a sugar infusion.

They have a wide variety of donuts to choose. Fun place to take the kids, it's small but clean. Prices are reasonable. Friendly staff.

We stopped in for some donuts for the road, they looked promising but were really hard to digest. Disappointing really, but nice rocket outside.

Everything is fresh and delish! The buttermilk bars are to die for....crispy and sweet with the perfect tang you expect. The cronut was full of jam and the holes were crispy! Mmmmm

Okay! We're always on the lookout for local...so on the road to hop the Alaska State Ferry to Skagway, we made a much anticipated stop (due to all the over the top reviews) at Rocket Donuts - sure am glad we did! First, although we didn't indulge - there are GIANT donuts!) These would be fun for a party...or if... More

I have celiac disease and so must be very careful about gluten. A co-worker brought in "gluten free" donuts from Rocket so I could join in the morning goodies. I'm glad I thought to call Rocket before I ate any. An employee told me that their "gluten-free" donuts are fried in the same oil as the regular ones. That means... More

There is more hype about this place than there is flavor. I wasn't impressed with their donuts or their ice cream. Higher than average prices, less than average flavor, poor service, wait staff had no personality and were less than knowledgeable about the product they're selling. Didn't go back our last visit to Bellingham.
