5 of NWA’s Best Darn Donut Shops by City

Okay, donuts may not fit on your keto / paleo / you-name-it diet, but maaaan are they delicious!

Northwest Arkansas certainly promotes a healthy lifestyle with some great, clean-cookin’ restaurants and the best bike trails in the world, but sometimes you just need the taste of a sweet fried donut from one of our local donut shops.

Fortunately for you, NWA is home to some of the best donuts you’re ever going to find!

We’ve done the hard work for you and made a list of donut shops by city so that you can quickly find one near you when you need one!

Bentonville: Fresh Donuts

It says it in the name — if you want some of the freshest donuts in the area, make the trip on over to Fresh Donuts. Not only are they absolutely delicious, but they’re pricing is light on the wallet, so you won’t feel like you’re giving your weeks paycheck away for a glazed donut 🙂

Address: 2502 SW 14th St, Bentonville, AR 72712

Rogers: Red Barn Donuts

The owners of this locally owned and operated donut have been hand making donuts for over 30 years! Do you really need to know more? Thanks to their labor of love, they spend about 3 hours making each batch of donuts.

Address: 447 W Hudson Rd, Rogers, AR 72756

Rogers / Fayetteville: Rick’s Bakery

It seems strange to use the words “elegance” and “donuts” both in the same sentence, but somehow it just seems appropriate for Rick’s. Unless you’re new to the area, you’re likely already familiar with the brand. If you aren’t familiar with them, just know that they’ve developed a great name in these parts for a reason! After running a successful bakery in Fayetteville, they recently opened a new location in Rogers near the Malco theater.

They deliver to your door too!

Rogers Address: 4600 W Rozell St, Rogers, AR 72756

Faytown Address: 1220 N College Ave, Fayetteville, AR 72703

The good news is that with so many locations, you’re bound to be near a Cronuts. The bad news, you may want to eat there all the time! Cronuts is another local joint that has earned rave reviews online.
