Soooo yummy!

They have a Homer Simpson donut! I got original glazed and it was perfect. Most reasonable breakfast place on the island!

Simply the best coffee, doughnuts!! Any time of day, Bennet's offers scrumptious doughnuts with over the top coffee. The selection is amazing, and staff are informed.

We love to go there but whether in season or not, weekends or weekdays,early or late, Bennett's attracts a crowd! The doughnuts are great but the pecan rolls are wonderful! We get a few to eat there and a few to bring home!

Really good glazed donuts and the maple/bacon donuts are fantastic. The bold coffees offered are fresh and smooth.

This is wonderful place for fresh donuts and rich roasted coffee. We try to keep these visits to monthly and only on the weekends. If it's too frequent, serious dieting would be needed.

Such a comfortable atmosphere and pleasant staff. Their donuts are world-famous and there are always a variety of delicious coffees to choose from. My favorite meal is the Cobb Salad, which is a tad pricey, but still worth it!

I wanted to take some with me to South Florida but the long drive would not work. Lisa at the counter said that she could not give me a cup of ice for my cooler. It is a shame that I could not buy a dozen of donuts for my friends over a cup of ice. It didn't make sense... More

Bob G, Owner at Bennett's Fresh Roast, responded to this review

We are sincerely thankful for your generous rating in spite of your disappointing experience. I checked with the server and learned that you were here on a day of problems with our ice machine and we were close to being completely out of ice. (Frankly, it's a space issue. We're pretty cramped and the ice machine is pretty small. On... More

This place is kind of hard to find but it is well worth the effort. The coffee is very good but the doughnuts are the stars. The orange crunch is amazing. The Boston cream is delicious. The sticky bun is the best I have ever had. We have been there twice and the owner has been present both times.

We heard from several people about Bennett's and decided to give it a try. Twice. (It would have been 3 times, if my son had his way!). Delicious donuts--I loved the peanut butter, my dad went crazy for the maple bacon, and the key lime was a hit all the way around...it'll be a stop on our next trip!
