These donuts were incredible. We purchased 6 to take home....glazed, almond coconut, boston creme, orange coconut, maple walnut toffee and peanut butter. All we could say was wow in between bites. Would highly recommend Bennett's. We will definitely be back.

Great place for coffee, tea, and donuts. Mostly a locals place. Donuts made fresh! Many people swear by the maple bacon donut, but I like the coconut almond. The donuts are soft and puffy-- a texture more like Krispy Creme than Dunkin. The earlier you get there, the more choices you will have as some donut flavors sell out quickly.... More

This is a locals favorite. In the downtown area, between the Edison Ford Estates and Centennial Park. Do stop in for a delicious, decadent breakfast treat! Bennett roasts his own coffee, and makes the donuts on site. Variety of donut flavors from the traditional glazed to the orange coconut and maple bacon. Choose your coffee, bold or mild. I think...

The donuts are absolutely delish. My husbands poker guys really enjoyed them. I took a girlfriend to Bennets for lunch awhile ago and it was fun. We both ordered a donut dog. Won't have it again, but what the heck. The waiter gave us free donuts to take home and we chattered with others there and made new connections. I... More

I'm sure I had you at Bacon!!!! Well this is a great combination, they have many other great flavors of donuts that you would never find at your typical doughnut shop, this place is unique, busy and really yummy. so go early to get the best selection, they sale out fast

Stopped to bring donuts to an event and glad I did. Austin was very nice and makes a great latte. The prices $1.10 to $1.75 per donut may be a little high, but the flavors are great. Had a cranberry muffin which was wonderful - full of fresh berries.

Great donuts and coffee. Very friendly staff! It's right down the street from our new home. Definitely returning! It's a great find as we are new in the city. JLG

I have been several times and had excellent food and service. However, the last time I went, they had shut down the grill 45 minutes before closing. They have a wonderful panini but I was unable to have one . Very disappointed.

Bennett's has a legendary reputation in Fort Myers; I visited the downtown Fort Myers location to see what the buzz was all about. The doughnuts are fresh baked and ginormous. The establishment is small and they can attract more visitors than the parking lot can handle. My mom and I stopped later in the day to avoid the crowds. In... More

Drove 20 minutes to get a hold of these donuts to try for the first time and it was worth it! The donuts were great! When I got there it was so hard to choose. I picked out 6 great choices Cinn.Sugar, Boston Cream, maple bacon, key lime, maple toffee chip, and orange crunch! The orange crunch was a bit... More
