Greatest treat in town...

This is truly a local treasure. The homemade donuts are the best you'll ever have. My favorite is the Heath Bar topped donut... They offer delicious coffee and coffee drinks, as well as delicious teas... Great staff, locally owned and operated.... 5 stars in every respect...

A client recommended Bennett's Fresh Roast for their Bacon Maple donuts. We made a quick pit stop to grab an order to go. Holy cow, are they good. We split a donut and brought several more home. I can't wait to try some of the other favors I brought home (Coconut/Vanilla, S'mores, and Double Chocolate). Oh, their coffee was really... More

Bennett's is not your everyday coffee shop. They are an excellent start to any day. From their fresh roasted coffee selections to their wonderful donuts and pastries this is the place us locals visit and enjoy.

Makes Crispy Cream a far second. This local spot is worth the visit downtown Fort Myers, near High Point. Best donuts anywhere.

If you are new to Fort Myers or the surrounding area, or have lived here for years and have yet to stumble upon this gem, add this to your must-do list in town!! I tell everyone about Bennett's and have no plans to stop. The maple walnut donut is my personal favorite. Although, you can not go wrong! FRESH!

Bennett's serves freshly roasted coffee and to-die-for doughnuts. Out-of-towners, take a detailed map to find this well-hidden place on a side street in a residential neighborhood. We liked it so much that we went out of our way to go a second time while on vacation in Cape Coral. It was nice to drink the coffee from a real mug... More

I love donuts - and this cafe is worth going 20 minutes out of your way to grab breakfast at. RECOMMENDATIONS - of the several our party sampled, the winner was surprisingly the Key Lime Donut. Great refreshing flavor fitting for south Florida, but not overwhelming like a lot of key lime products. Donuts are about $2 apiece, but I... More

Ordered 6 donuts and they were absolutely delicious. The peanut butter donut was the favorite followed by the cinnamon bun. Service was excellent. Would hike recommend making a stop at Bennett's.

I have been here many times, perhaps too many times. It is a place I always take my grandkids when they are visiting. It has the best glazed donuts and coffee anywhere. If I lived closer,I would have to eat weight watchers the rest of the week. It is a place that just puts a smile on your face.
