Just okay

First we had a hard time finding it, it was nestle in a residential area. The coffee was great but my sister and I found the glaze donuts to be too sweet. They were very fresh and it was fun watching the dough be rolled and cut into donuts.

Amazing donuts, delicious (refillable) coffee, even a fresh fruit cup option, and outdoor seating. Every city should have one of these.

Seriously, the doughnuts at this shop are outrageous. What started as a small donut and coffee shop several years ago has become a serious business. They have also expanded to Sanibel and are giving the other places a run for their money out there. I can only allow myself to eat donuts once in awhile or I would look like... More

Bennett's has the best doughnuts in town - hands down. We typically get them to go from the downtown location - and bring home as a treat, or pick up as our first stop on the Island, if heading out for a morning at the beach on Sanibel. Variety of flavors. Our favorites are the simple glazed and sugar coated.... More

Yes, this is the home of the donut with the bacon on top. Never had it. I go here for the coffee. Yes, it's that good. Forget Starbucks. One of my friends' father, a native of Ft. Myers, is a card-carrying member. Folks who run the place and work here are as special as the coffee. You can't help but... More

Tucked away just a block or two South of the business district in FMY, this place is worth seeking out. FRESH donuts ( we loved the Maple Bacon offering),, coffee roasted on the premises...hard to beat. We stopped by about 9:30 on a weekday morning and the place was packed. Not to worry, service levels are high and both the... More

Donuts are always fresh and are fantastic. Highly recommend. Never had other food, but it always looks good on other people's plates.

So I kept hearing about this place, and finally gave into my wife's request to take the kids there for breakfast. That one trip set me back $30 for a dozen donuts, 2 coffees, and 2 Oj's, but it was the best $30 I have spent on breakfast! Go there, seriously Go... stop reading this and GO!

Great coffee, even better donuts! Awesome spot for coffee and donuts when we go downtown! My favorite is the Bacon and Caramel.
