Default Cookeville Donuts is NOW open

We tried this place (located across from Krystals) this morning. Not only are they affordable but they are amazingly yummy! More flavors then Ralphs (my fav is the strawberry iced) and only $4.99 a doz.
Try this place, you will not be sorry!

BTW they ARE open on Sundays

Thanks for the post. Cookeville is a little far but for a good donut and coffee it is worth the trip now and then.

I found a good little donut shop in Crossville by the name of Samatha's but unfortunately they shut their doors. Now the only place left is the Doughnut "O" and their coffee is downright nasty. Their donuts aren't that good but regardless they just keep raising the price.

$4.99 a dozen special is now over, only a grand opening deal. We went there a week or so ago and we very disappointed. The glazed donuts were OK, there rest were just bad. I'll stick with Ralphs.

I was surprised to see that someone was bold enough to open another doughnut shop in Cookeville. Between Ralph's and Big O--and with Dunkin' Donuts already announced that they're coming to town--I just don't think there's enough demand for yet another doughnut shop in Cookeville. I just don't see that the new doughnut place will last very long, particularly considering how it's almost impossible to make anything as good as Ralph's. I feel bad for the owners of that new place.

Oh good heavens, Ralph's has infinitely better doughnuts than DD. The advantage DD has is that it has other things such as bagels, muffins, and hot breakfast foods. In fact, I think DD in Cookeville will do very well because of the bagels. There's nowhere else in town to get fresh bagels. And if DD opens near the interstate, they should do fine.

But back to the topic of this thread, unless Cookeville Donuts has something unusual that Ralph's doesn't, I don't see them being in business very long, particularly once DD opens.

Digging up an old thread, but, as predicted, Cookeville Donuts is now closed. Was by there today and saw the signs in the window. 4 donut shops couldn't be supported and they were the worst of the 4.

Whoa there... the Choc covered cream filled at Big O is crazy good. I have to stop in every time I am in town visiting. Ralphs is also an institution. It has been there since I was a kid and that was many... many... many years ago. Not much is left of old Cookeville but Ralphs surely has made it a long time.
