We stop ever time we are in the area. A little out of the way and it looks rough but it is worth seeking out and is cleaner than it looks from the outside. Surprising amount of traffic for a donut shop.

Best non-Kristy Kreme in Cookeville! They do have a better variety than Kristy Kreme. This is the oldest and best in Cookeville. They were also in the top 20 in the country list.

Ralph's Donut Shop is located on Cedar Street in historic WestSide in Cookeville Tennessee. If you haven't eaten a donut from Ralph's you haven't eaten a good donut! They are the best! My favorite is the glazed blueberry cake donut.
