REVIEWS OF Rockets Bakery IN Iowa

Ben Wilson

Their raspberry bowties are worth driving the 25 minutes for me to get one.

Sheryl Kinney

I love the donuts!!! I just ordered two dozen for an event. They were helpful in choices and pricing, deciding what and when to pick up.

Amy Beck

Melissa Schwake

J Schr

Sarah Fisher Hughes

Highly RECOMMEND visiting rockets for their unique donuts and friendly servce!! Very unique donuts.

Debi Nagle

Karlee Sorensen

Pretty good hot chocolate, downtown location is a tad sketchy and the breakfast options are slim. Wouldn't go back unless I really wanted a donut.

Shellie Mott

Best choices in town.

Mariah Pitts

John Fischer

The apple fritter is amazing, worth the visit.

sammy sunny

Don't bring your husbands here paying with their cards. The owner has a tendency to look them up by name and send messages/photos to their personal social media accounts. Their Instagram business page for Rockets Donuts is highly unprofessional. Should not be used to message anyone's Husband privately from a business page. Staff is highly unprofessional. Will not be going back to this Home-wrecking Donut shop. I'm only giving this one star because that's what it takes to post my message otherwise there would be NONE!

Jena Billings

Omg the apple fritters. I've never had better. Some of their donuts are too sweet for me, but you can't go wrong with the fritters. We also love the pecan rolls and cinnamon rolls.

Great variety from basic to very creative. All the doughnuts have a unique flavor to them almost like a funnel cake, which is delicious. They are in my personal top 3 doughnut shops.

Alex Bratten

Best doughnuts in town! Would even be willing to say they're better then hurts doughnuts in coralville!

Catherine Schroeder

Awesome rolls!! So fresh!!!

krystal gaston

Honestly I don't think it's all that fabulous. The one time I ordered a cream filled donut instead of filling the donut they just cut it in half and slathered cream on it. It's convenient since Johnson's Bakery isn't around anymore but otherwise it's okay. Decent sizes for the price.

The sign on the door actually says the hours or until they run out. I can't believe the haters rating this place a 1 for not being open.

We had an X-fritter (apple and berry) and a peanut butter bowtie; both were delicious, and easily twice the size of an average donut. The coffee was really good too, and they have Hansen's milk.

kim wadey

Great place!!!

Andrew hostelka

Great doughnuts

Autumn D.

Delicious!!! Can’t wait to go back! Try the Holland Bismarck and the twists!!!

Aaron Bertram

They have some topping options you can't get at a gas station, but there is nothing unique or gourmet. The staff was awfully rude and unhelpful. The only real novelty here is the lack of other shops - everyone in the area uses 50 year old recipes and styles. Throwing some cereal on the same 50 year old recipe and then being a jerk while you serve it to me, like you're some kind of social elite... won't go back - not worth the wait or cost.

Shane Booth

Tim Groninga

OMG, best donuts anywhere around Wloo/CF!

Sara Kersenbrock

Amazing donuts! Would have given a 5, but every time I go in there, someone is in the back, loudly discussing something that is most definitely not work related.

Will Frost

Love love love this place. I also love doughnuts soooo..... yeah.

Haley Andersen

Awesome service and the best donuts around. Highly recommend!

Rachael Hallstrom

Rockets was extremely good! We went on a Sunday and had to wait 15-20min, but it was well worth it. The donuts were still hot when we ate them, and super soft. The staff even offered to a lady in front of us to make a version of a filled donut non-filled because of what she wanted and the food was coming out so fast. Well recommended, can't wait to go back!

Melanie Hayes

Really great donuts, just a small space and crowded.

Scott Swisher

As outstanding as outstanding can be!

Nicole Finholt

I understand it's new and everyone wants to try it, but it was VERY small place, busy and everyone was trying to huddle inside and form some "sort" of line because it's cold. The menu needs to be bigger right behind the registers so people can actually read it. Currently it's a small white board off to the side They didn't have very much to choose from, granted we got there 4 hrs after they opened, so understandable. Seems they only make so many of each donut and when it's gone, it's gone. But you don't know this until you get up there and already have your mind made up what you want. I was overall not impressed, the donuts were good and pretty big, the staff was friendly, however, i feel you can get the same quality/ taste at hyvee bakery... for cheaper. I'm willing to try again, but overall first impressions weren't great.

Gourmet donuts. Locally owned. Worth the wait.

Ryan Hessler

Great doughnuts absolutely amazing

Hanna N.

MUST STOP! Amazing donuts something unexpected everytime! We love to get orders for the office, school treats and to spoil our daycare providers. They are a hit EVERYTIME. Love to come on the weekends for a treat with our kids and love supporting local business ran by real people. If you haven’t been STOP TODAY you will not be disappointed!

Fritters need more fruit

Cindy Finney

I like the service went out of there way to get us the donut we wanted the donuts were yummy

Sara Jones

Rockets bakery has a great selection of Bismarks and other donuts. The strawberry lemonade Bismarks are AMAZING! It's a small place with a couple tables, but perfect for stopping through and picking up some donuts on your way. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you're in Waterloo, I would highly recommend stopping here!

Pat Kroll
