I had a macchiato and almond coconut donut! The espresso was so rich and bold! Donut was fresh and so yummy! I love it here. Will be back.

Best damned donut I have ever eaten. I had coconut orange. It was so light , cakey and just-right flavorful (not sickly sweet like those other donuts). Heavenly. The donuts and the coffee have nuances! I brought my husband home a cinnamon bun and he was thoroughly delighted with it! The coffee was excellent and the baristas were so helpful... More

We stopped over here after going to the Fort Myers farmers market. Word to the wise, don't go to the Fort Myers farmers market. It's more of a flea market. Stick to Cape Coral farmers market that's open in the high season. Anyway, we'd saw all the great reviews to this place and decided to stop in and give it... More

Bennett's makes the Best Donuts I have ever eaten. Their selection is phenomenal. I stopped by very early one day while 9 months pregnant and found Lisa's caliber of service to be extremely gracious. This outstanding restaurant is worth checking out!!!

My husband, daughter, and I had the privilege to go to this bakery. The coffee was the best I ever had. However, I thought I had gone to heaven when I bit into the maple glazed bacon donut. An absolutely MUST if you go here. Do you deliver out of state??

Stopped in to pick up a couple of doughnuts and drinks. Sorry I am not a doughnut connoisseur, so I could not appreciate the double the price for a doughnut; compared to a nationally known brand. I also bought a bottle of water, it was so below average in taste but at $2.50 for 11 ounces, was above the average... More

A hidden small breakfast/lunch café that specializes in home made donuts and excellent coffee. Its a bit hidden on 1st street -easy to drive by because the side of the café is on 1st street with a dirt lot in front. Outside shaded deck. Lunch menu is limited but features excellent homemade soups, a salad or two and great sandwiches.... More

This place will not disappoint! I dream of their maple bacon donut and their orange crunch donut! I can only say, don't come to Fort Myers, Florida and leave without trying Bennett's!

Great neighborhood secret!! Their coffee is fresh brewed; bold - mild great. Their doughnuts and muffins are the best, made fresh daily, forget about Krispy Kremes or Dunkin Donuts. They can't begin to compare. We have visited many times; different times of the morning and have always found the coffee and doughnuts fresh and delicious.

Never do we miss an opportunity to visit Bennett's in Ft Myers. Humbly placed near beautiful MacGregor Blvd near the Ft Myers waterfront, Bennett's is THE best donut shop around! Maybe the best anywhere.... Love the many creative options. Orange Crunch, Maple Bacon....i love them all. If your cravings veered beyond donuts, one can indulge with lunch and coffee as... More
