“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

The donuts are delicious and not run of the mill. Definitely give this a visit. There's a small area with tables, where you can enjoy the clever decor.

“Best Donut/Coffee Shop in Bellingham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Rocket Donuts have the freshest donuts and the best drip coffee in Bellingham, period! They also offer espresso drinks and hard ice cream (Acme). They are a sci-fi themed place with large aliens hanging off the upper deck, old sci-fi movies playing on video screens, '60's Rock and Roll songs on the sound system----what's not to like? They even have a rocket ship inside their Fairhaven store with a round porthole hooked to a video camera which is aimed near the floor for kids 3-10 to stand in front of and appear to be inside the rocket! Fun for the kids! Friendly counter attendants and a frequent customer system keyed on your cell number, which you give them with each purchase and soon you have another free donut or cup of coffee!

“Offers gluten free donuts (and vegan donuts)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Another reviewer asks what's so great about this place. Well, when you're allergic to gluten and nuts, and this place has a couple of different donuts that you can actually eat and taste good, that's what's so great. They had a couple of vegan donuts as well, but those were not gluten free. The rest of my family got the regular donuts and they thought they were really good. My husband liked all the movie posters of old sci-fi flicks.

only so much can be said about a donut.....didn't get the rocket ride while eating this one...the staff was very friendly ...it's a nice enough place to sit and have a good cup of coffee and watch people get their morning sugar rush ....

“I want to go back for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

So I was taken here by someone who said that we just couldn't leave Bellingham without a Rocket Donut... I am SO glad that she did! I'm a purist and so ordered 2 glazed. Melt in your mouth goodness. I ate one right away and saved the other for later and both were equally as good. Words can't describe how delicious these were.
