If you don't like the maple bacon donuts you are a jerk!

The donuts are out of this world good worth the wait and limited seating! Super nice staff too. Best on a nice weather day to take advantage of the outdoor seating.

We heard the donuts at Bennet's were good, but they were actually amazing. I tried the peanut butter and chocolate, and the almond coconut. Wow!!! They were fresh and delicious.

Absolutely fantastic donuts at Bennett's. Unlike any I have ever tried. Worth the calories/trip if you're near Fort Myers.

My wife and I decided to try Bennet's after hearing so many good things about them and when we got there we weren't the only ones as there was a line of about 30 ppl.. We got six donuts just to try different ones and they were the freshest, airy donuts I've ever had

The donuts are fresh, big and delicious. Not to mention the excellent coffee. I love that they have on on Sanibel now.

From the time we stepped onto the porch under a blanket of trees we knew we were going to feel right at home here...and love it! And love it we did! It was a little chilly outside so we ate inside among the locals & felt like part of the gang. We were met by smiling faces behind a shiny... More

I have been a loyal customer of Bennett's ever since it opened. Over time as the prices have gone up, the lines longer, and the employees not smiling as much, I noticed myself going less and less. This morning I got there at 6:15 and the line was probably 20 people long, and there seemed to be only one person... More

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

We deeply regret disappointing any customer, especially one who's been with us for a while. As the customer noted, it was 6:15 in the morning, a time when we're usually not as busy as we are later in the morning. Though it's possible we were out of maple bacon donuts temporarily, we can personally assure everyone that they were either... More

This is a great place to stop for breakfast before you go to the Edison Ford Winter Estates. My mouth waters every time I think of the maple bacon donuts. The coffee is excellent too.
