REVIEWS OF Nord's Bakery IN Kentucky

Christian Goodyear

Never had an experience here less than perfect. Stop by here for literally any of their donuts, and then go next door for Sunergos coffee. Will definitely make your morning great!

Kimberly B

We ordered 25 dozen dinner rolls and they were very accommodating. People enjoyed them. We will be back!

Nicole Arbuckle

Come every time I'm in town. Brought the maple bacon all the way back to Ohio the last time and my husband freaked out. I love that it's a local hole in the wall. I went this Fall on the day the time changed. The place was packed! The staff are super friendly and will describe every pastry even with a long line. Very affordable considering the quality. I'd pay more.

Chris Pou

Best hidden gem for baked goods.

Peggy Reeves

Cake for the boss was melt in your mouth yumminess! Everyone loved it!

Christiane Sehlinger

Best donuts in town. Get there early if possible, they run out of the most popular ones.

Mike Pascal

Fantastic Bakery, great selection, fantastic prices as well. A local favorite.

Kentucky Keys

Home of the bacon maple donut that is so delicious. When I tell most people about this donut they think it’s an odd combination until they taste it. It’s one of the best donuts in Louisville. The staff is very friendly. Expect a line but it moves fast.

Jocelyn Ridenour

Best donuts in town

Joshua Miller

Go there often live nearby. Great glaze doughnuts

Jarred Ford

Always smells wonderful. The donuts are nice, I like the custard ones best or the creme. I'm not the biggest fan of the breading of the donut, but still a better quality than most. You can buy them by the singles or the dozen depending on how much you need. They also have a variety of flavors including maple bacon, if that's your thing.

Elaine Ludwig

What can I say! Those doughnuts were wonderful as always! I love this small bakery. My 87 yr old mother worked there when she was a teenager (she only worked 1 day). Nords beats Krispy Kreme on taste, price and friendly service. I never go to Krispy Kreme any more. You will love the doughnuts and kitchens. Ummmmmmmmm!

Ashley Randolph

Its just the best in the world

tanya smith

The best doughnuts

Ducky Borden

Fantastic birthday cake and Holland cream doughnuts!


Good selection of fresh yummy donuts

Joe Hamilton

Best donuts ever.

April Heicken

Nord's has the best tasting doughnuts ever. They are very fresh, soft, and bigger than your usual doughnut. They have excellent service and the line moves pretty quick during those busy mornings. Parking is only available on the street.

Emanuel Henderson

This is the best local bakery in town! Really nice folks and fast service considering how crowded it was.

paul schork

Have been a regular, repeat customer for quite some time. Guess that says that I like their baked goods and they are a good value

S Davis

Love this bakery. However, I did not like the red velvet donut. The cinnamon roll was delicious.

Sarah Parker

Delicious donuts. We were visiting from out of town and wanted to get something quick and sweet for breakfast and they did not disappoint. There was a line when we got there but it moved quickly.

Ashley Fabel

Best maple bacon donut in town!

Jason Cress

Great donuts, good prices, lots of unique options. Their pecan rolls are fantastic too! They don't have any savory breakfasts items though. The only protein we found was their maple bacon donut.

James Baxter

Love this place always good doughnuts and great service. Been coming here for over 25years

Blugrass Baller

Freshest donuts in town. Great taste, courteous staff.

Stephen Dean

The Bacon Maple Donut should be listed as the 7th wonder of the world. HANDS DOWN THE BEST DONUT ON EARTH....PERIOD!

Kiersten Cuskey

This place is delicious. Their maple bacon doughnut is the perfect balance between sweet and savory and the decor/atmosphere makes it feel cozy and homey to anyone who walks inside. Nord's bakery is one of those special gems you can find in Louisville and is DEFINITELY worth the trip!

Cathy Senn

The best bakery in Louisville

David Zick

Second best bakery in louisville. Friendly fast clean

J. Brian Reese

Nord's is the quintessential neighborhood bakery. They have the best doughnuts in town, and on Sundays if you're wondering if you got up early enough to beat the didn't!

David Ferren

Best donuts on this side of town

Leslie Morrison

Love Nord's! So many wonderful choices! Cookies are terrific as are the doughnuts. Haven't had a cake from here (yet) but it is on my list! Highly recommend! Go early for best selection!

Adonya Anderson

Called to order ahead. No answer...drove 25 miles to find they were sold out of the buttercream donuts we came there for. Although the long johns were phenomenal, was disappointed to drive 50 miles round trip for nothing.

J Woogle

Really enjoyed their donuts. Passed my having a good basic glazed donut test. I did however, fall in love with their Bacon Donut!! First I've ever had and wasn't sure how well it would play. For my tastes it was wonderful. My wife thinks there should be two pieces of bacon on it, to even out the flavors. I can see her argument, but I loved it just the same. Staff was super friendly and had no trouble answering a few questions about the donuts, even though they were super busy. We weren't holding up the line, we were just asking what certain donuts were, because we were unsure. I have been to places where they treated me like asking "what kind of donut is that?" was an unacceptable question and they weren't even that busy. Happy to have found this place and will be going back for sure.

Nancy Bitter

So so so very good!

Vondylon Morgan

The chocolate creamfilled long johns are awesome,the buttercream filled doughnuts atre too.

Vontrae Cruse

Nords in a nutshell is THE best Bakery in this entire state, period. Maple

Sherrie Biszmaier

Love the donuts. Staff always friendly and helpful

Loanne Jordon

I have liked everything I have ever bought there. Love the butter buns.

Billy Engelman

Of the highest quality. This is some nuts dough.

liz bennett

Was in town for the derby and on our way back home we stopped at this bakery. When I tell you that the donuts taste like love and sugar that does not accurately describe what I tasted. It's like unicorns and fairies are in the back making donuts. And the staff are so sweet and friendly. Only place I want to get donuts from the next time I come back to town.

Charles V Rademaker Jr.

Best doughnuts and baked goods anywhere!

Todd Riester

The absolute best sweets (doughnuts cookies cakes etc) in town hands down! Plus they are cheaper than the chain bakeries. 5 stars

T. Rick

Retirement party. Awesome, awesome, awesome job!!! The cake was great , and exactly décor as requested. So many compliments. Hats off to you guys. I will return for another event, and have already told friends. Keep up the good work!

michael howell

The best

Clay Childs

I love this place I won't go to any other bakery!

Tim Learn

There might as well not be another doughnut place in Louisville. Some people love the bacon doughnut, which is amazing but the one to try is the French twist. It looks like a long john that's been twisted inside itself, very simple but tastes delicious. My family gets all of our cakes for birthday parties there as well. They do an excellent job and will make virtually anything that you ask. Every time that we visit, I get a picture with one of my kids with the paining on the side of the building, they love it!

Steven Quinn

Great prices and delicious donuts! Very busy but also very quick!

Tiffany Le

This place was pretty good. Their prices are amazing, these are probably the cheapest donuts I have ever gotten. The glaze was nice and chewy, and the cream filled was good. They had a maple bacon, and that was unique in a great way, the bacon was crispy and added savoriness to the sweet donuts. Should definitely check it out if you are nearby.


Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness!

Chris David

Best dark chocolate doughnuts ever... Seriously.

Jenn Fuson

Best place in town for ALL your bakery needs!


Good donuts ok price.

Brian Brock

Highland cream, Crunch Long John...nuff said. Nord's is awesome

Jessica Lutz

Best donuts in Louisville!! The maple bacon is a must-try if you visit!

Amanda Bell

Always love their donuts! Looking forward to ordering a 1st communion cake soon. The employees are so sweet and caring. My donut store for life! Update: They made a cake for our son's First Communion and it was delicious! Nothing fancy but pretty and good and only $18.

Kathryn Snyder

Delicious donuts! But make sure to arrive as early as you can before they run out! I really recommend their maple donuts!

Mark Joubert

Great selection of doughnuts and cookies. Friendly service. Seating is limited.

Gaines IN Life

Very popular place, alway busy. I love the cinnamon twist.

Robert Burch

Can still get a dozen donuts for $8!! Also, friendly service, good selection, and best tasting in town.

Tyler Radford

These doughnuts are just

Kelsi Drake

Amazing donuts!

Robert Allen

Awesome donuts, fantastic service... A lot of places are doing the whole maple bacon thing these days and that's... fine. But this place is doing it so well that if there was one on top of your head, your tongue would beat your brains out trying to get to it. Be careful.

Patrick Carrico

Local family-owned bakery with a selection of cakes, pastries, cookies, and doughnuts. Known for their maple bacon doughnut. There can be a line but it moves quickly and exists for good's delicious. I took the kids today and the staff went above and beyond to make it a great experience.

Gregg Lambert

You know too much about me! Quit following me.

Melissa Brown

Great customer service and the food is fabulous. Everything is also decently priced. Its a must if you are in the area...

Tonya Ramsey

Delicious and wonderful service!!!! I just can't get enough!!!!!

Jerry French

The absolute best sweets (doughnuts cookies cakes etc) in town hands down! Plus they are cheaper than the chain bakeries. 5 stars

Scott Kohanowski

The donuts are out of this world.

Elaine White

Delicious donuts and a variety of other pastries. The staff was so nice and chatted with us explaining the different flavors. Definitely will visit again next time we're in Louisville.

Manooch Saeedi

Delicious donuts, but they sell out quickly!

zak wright

By far the best donut bakery in Louisville! Their cookies are really good too. Make sure to show up early if you want your choice of donuts as they sell out fast!

Chas Shackleford

I was sent a review from someone in New Zealand showing this as the best bakery in Kentucky. We went in the afternoon so there wasn't a lot to choose from (which says a lot that the good/fan faves go pretty quickly. Staff were friendly and helpful recommended coming in early for a greater selection.

christine hannon

Donuts and cookies are good but please be aware there is only one Baker when it comes to wedding and specialty cakes and dont have high expectations, if you do you'll surely be disappointed. Last year me and my husband ordered almost a $500 cake and got nothing that we ordered even down to the flavor was wrong, the most upsetting part of it all was when we made a small cut into it the whole cake fell apart right before us. They did not refund us but told us they would give us a anniversary cake for our 1yr ann. Took 3 weeks after our anniversary to get it and it was only a 8 inch round cake. Needless to say it was overall a horrible experience and wouldnt recommend anything other than cookies, donuts and maybe cupcakes nothing more.

Anthony L

Best Donuts in Louisville. Period.

Dakota Welbourn

Best donuts in the known universe(probably the unknown too). They're always extremely friendly, quick on the service end and the cost to quality? Insane. This place is inexpensive, and makes all of the competition, both local and abroad, pale in comparison. Simply the best.

Michael Terry

Need a wheelchair accessible don't have it what handicap people like donuts

phillip christian

Great doughnuts. Busy place

Nina Bell

This place has people standing in line sometimes out the door. It is a small place. They should put more filling in their donuts, after all that's why people are buying their filled donuts. They sell out quickly most every day on their Danish and Kuchens.

Rita Smith

The best donuts in town! Try the French fries. Heat them in the microwave for ten seconds and they will melt in your mouth! The French fries are a donut inside of a donut, kind of shaped like a long john, but only glazed. DELICIOUS!!!

Kyle Haas

Fantastic old-school bakery. Lots of fresh donuts made every morning. The Apple Fritters are my favorite, but we'll usually grab a butterküchen if they have them.

MaFu MiXeR

Great service and great food! Been looking for a good bakery since moving from Michigan,this is it

Tee Vee

I thought I loved Krispy Kreme because of the soft delicious Texture of the donut but I ended up loving Nords Bakery so much more. Prices are very reasonable with excellent taste.

Glen Moore

If you need to remember what a real donut tastes like it’s time to come to Nord’s Bakery... they have all the usual offerings but made fresh with high quality ingredients... the prices are good and the service is fast and friendly but Beware! They often sell out by 11:00am so better to rise with the early bird whose after the metaphoric worm than to miss out... and just when you thought this couldn't get any better, to top it all off Nord's Bakery is RIGHT next door to Sunergos coffee shop, so you can start your morning off with a one-two punch. But, beware because the phrase “I’ll take a dozen” has been reported to come out of peoples’ mouths involuntarily.

Nathan Depenbrock

I am completely addicted to this place. Went twice to make sure! Stood in line with people from over an hour a way who just came for the donuts.. And I see why! These are the best donuts I have ever had!

Judy fast

Yummy donuts as usual!! Filled donuts are generously filled not like Krispy Kreme where filling is skimpy.

Mary Frances Hovekamp

Awesome. Best doughnuts in town. Always worth the wait

Heather Evans

One of those local cozy bakeries. Very popular in the area. Will be very busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings so make sure you get there early! The donuts are very good. I'm giving 4 stars because of the disorganized way the orders were being taken when I was there. I was ordering a dozen donuts and the woman had to walk away and come back 3 times just to get my order. At other shops I've seen the employees just write the order on a peice of paper and then get the donuts. This seems much more efficient and you don't have employees bumping into each other, scrambling to get orders. Other than that, Nord's is fantastic. Will be going there again.

Cassandra Hobbs

Quick, friendly service. Donuts fantastic, as always! Maple bacon long johns may scare you away, bit don't let it. I've tried many other very of this donut and none can beat Nord's

Cheez Head

I wish they made a plain freaking donut but you can get donut with frosting filling and bacon

Jeremiah Austin

Currently feel they are the best donuts in the Louisville area.

Ian Bischof

MAPLE BACON DOUGHNUTS! What more of a review do you need?! It's a doughnut with bacon on it! Give these people a Nobel Peace Prize for the work they've done for all mankind!

Carly Garcia

Although their blueberry pie donuts are my favorite, I've never had anything mediocre here. Simple and sweet, this is the best place in the city for traditional donuts and novelty cookies. Nord's is a true Louisville staple.

Timothy Arndt

Classic donuts. Simply delicious. The bacon maple donuts are the bomb! Bring cash. It also helps that they are next to Sunergos Coffee and the book nook. Books, coffee, and donuts for the perfect trifecta! They also make excellent cookies and cupcakes.

Tracie Gault

All their donuts and pastries are delicious. I absolutely will wake up extra early to get their maple bacon long John's donuts

Kristy Charlton

I always love to stop in and get my donut kick from Nords. Even as good as Heitzelmans is, these donuts are still far superior! The one and only downside and the reason I can't give 5 stars is due to the limited selection. I absolutely love this place!

Daniel Lewis

Great shop--everything is good--service is excellent!

Erika Oliver

If any restaurant/bakery in the state of Kentucky deserves 5 stars, it is Nords. My parents live out of town and had spoken to a bakery there about doing a special cake for a big event. They agreed to do the cake and have their baker call back the next day. The call came 3 days late and 2 days before they needed the cake. Not to mention they were rude about the cake design. My mom frantically called Nords and was met with immense kindness and willingness to do the cake on such short notice. Their pricing was also significant better than the out of town bakery. My mom raved about the friendliness of the staff and bakers at Nord's. They baked this amazing and beautiful cake and continuously said congratulations for the event. They truly saved the day and helped make it very special. Not to mention the cake was delicious! I have also worked with Nords on providing doughnuts for local events and they are always gracious to donate for local causes! They are a great business to work with!

Carolyn Goodman

They have the greatest donuts and variety. Love this place.

Michael Sheehy

Had a tasting set up here that we travelled into town for, when I called to confirm they told me the wedding coordinator had a baby, yet nothing was communicated to us. Lucky and grateful to find another bakery.

Chuck Norris

I always eat a dozen and hide a dozen in my beard, save them for later. Quite possibly one of the greatest places on planet earth. Recommend the “alligator head danish” and the butter cream. Merica.

calvin murrell

Yes very special place, a must

John Stephens

Everytime I come home, I get a bacon covered donut

Vance Overstreet

Staff is the best Three choc doughnuts and tru moo that's how i roll

Mounica B

There was a line when I reached this cute little place, but it moved very quickly. My experience is far better than I expected. Staff is very friendly and would love to come back to this place. Donuts, Cupcakes and Brownies are fresh. Prices are very very reasonable for the quality and taste they serve.

Elizabeth Meurer

Best donuts in KY hands down

Mary Lucas

Donuts are delicious and customer service was very pleasant

Dj Talai

A wonderful local bakery! We order our son's birthday cakes from here ever year and they're always kind professional and the cakes are amazing!

Jack Burnstein

Great bakery, their desserts are tasteful and the staff is very friendly!

Jessamine Greer

Nords is local flavor. Their maple bacon donut is legendary, and their enormous alligator donut is well worth the price tag. Local family-run, with a limited number of donuts available - several types are limited-availability - once they sell out, they won't be making more. However, I've never had to wait for service, and there's always been something available that I've been excited to eat. Would definitely recommend a trip to this local favorite.
