Where You Can Find The Best Donuts in Fayetteville

Love donuts? You aren't alone! Americans eat millions of them each year. Our love for a good donut shows no signs of declining, no matter what fancy dessert is on trend at the moment (we're looking at you, rolled ice cream). If you can't get enough of the sweet treats, here are three awesome places near our apartments in Fayetteville.


Location: 1151 W Martin Luther King Boulevard

No matter how you like your donuts, Cronuts Donuts has you covered. This shop not only offers traditional yeast and cake donuts for the donut purists, but also offers the decadent twist on the donut: the cronut. Cronuts are donuts made from croissant pastry dough, originating in New York but perfected right here in Fayetteville. While the cronut is a must-try, you won't be disappointed with anything on their menu.


Location: 1220 North College Avenue

Rick's Bakery is a one-stop shop for all your bakery needs. Started in 1980, the bakery has built a reputation for excellence in all the things they make. They create gorgeous cakes, savory sausage rolls, and decadent pastries. But their donuts will have you coming back again and again! Rick's has a good variety of the sweet treats, so you can choose from a traditional glazed or go big with a bear claw.


Location: 241 North College Avenue, Suite 1

Smudgie's Dessert Lab has offerings that will satisfy any sweet tooth. If a simple donut isn't enough for you, Smudgie's has you covered with their signature dessert. They take your warm donut and create an ice cream sandwich, with the ice cream and toppings of your choice. Try the Pablo. It's a chocolate donut with coffee ice cream, a sprinkle of powdered coffee and sugar, then drizzled with condensed milk. Yum.
