Great donuts

Loved the donuts and the coffee. They are fantastic and the variety unique. The downsides are the long lines and difficulty in finding a parking spot as well as the relatively high prices. If you have the time and patience, it is worth trying.

Such a variety of fresh donuts and coffee's! The service was also exceptional! I tried the maple bacon donut, which is ideal for any salty & sweet fan!

Have enjoyed many items from this shop. Fresh, airy, delicious donuts :) But you have to get there early before your favorite is sold out. Various delicious choices. Had the donut dog for lunch one day - decadent and enormous. I couldn't finish it. Ate several other sandwiches and all were tasty and fresh. I have yet to try the... More

They have the best donuts in town. It is best to go first thing when they open. They do sell out of the special made donuts by mid day other than the basic ones. It's not a very large place.

Got there at 10:00 a.m. on a Saturday. Long line, could not sit outside so inside was packed but managed to sit down after ordering. Staff was friendly if a little confused about their own process. Wanted to try the "Famous Strata". Forget it, sold out. OK, my companion and I order the breakfast sandwich with ham. Sold out. OK,... More

After reading the reviews on here bout Bennett's we had to give it a try. Very busy on a rainy Friday morning. No seats to be had inside and we couldn't sit outside, so we had to get our drinks and donuts to go. The s'mores yeast donut was old, almost stale with skimpy toppings. My father had the orange...

Maple glazed with bacon - thats all I have to say. What a concept. Why did I have to wait half my life to find these??? Quaint little place kind of in a residential area and parking at 8am was really challenging but now I know to get there before the business crowd If you eat donuts or drink coffee,... More

Bennett's is a small, very friendly spot. There is some indoor seating as well as outdoor. We tried several different donuts and muffins and all were very delicious! I particularly enjoyed the Key Lime donut.

We needed our coffee, but decent coffee. Bennett's in Fort Myers fit the bill. Great Coffee and a super lobster roll to accompany it. Bennett's also served lots of pastries and donuts which seemed popular with the locals but we did not try them. The location is within a small, pretty community in Fort Myers, by the Bay. Easy to...

They have the best freshly baked donuts in SW Florida. I never had a bacon donut until I had one from Bennett and now I'm addicted to them.
