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

Staff was very hospitable and the food was very good. We ordered sandwiches for lunch. A good hearty meal with a bonus sweet treat at the end. I hope we go back for lunch again today. The caking decorating is intricate and cool to see.

I'm so glad we found Rick's bakery. We ended up eating breakfast there 2 days. In addition to delicious donuts and pastries, they also serve a few savory items including biscuits and gravy. It was very affordable and the service was great.

They have a great variety of pastries. I don't think you would be disappointed with anything. They do speciality cakes that are decorated unbelievably well. Incredible might be a better word. They also have a special room for children's birthday parties. Each child gets his or hers own cake to decorate. They then can take the cake home. They seem... More
