Reviewed April 15, 2014

Very good variety. Always freshly made donuts, muffins, etc. Our church buys donut holes here every Sunday for our fellowship time. Friendly owner and staff. Great service.

Reviewed April 15, 2014

Ralph's is a Cookeville tradition. Still making the best donuts and breakfast sandwiches around and reasonably priced.

“Best Donuts anywhere!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We live in a College town and this place is a favorite among most students! I have been stopping by Ralph's for 40 plus years! I have tried some of the "chain" donut shops, but they just don't measure up! I have been there numerous times with coworkers, family and friends.

“Can't say enough good things”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Ralph's donut shop is a true gem. The donuts themselves were delicious, the coffee was also great. Prices can't be beat. And the staff is friendly and accommodating. Make sure you stop by if you're in town.

“Try the sugar cookies too!”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

The donuts are always fresh and delicious. They make the best sugar cookies too but they are only available at Christmastime and around Valentines Day. Definitely worth a try!
