Great doughnuts and breakfast sandwiches. Very popular spot in IRB. Coffee is excellent hot or iced. It gets busy so be prepared to wait during the morning rush, but it's worth it!

Oh boy...a few years ago, before we lived in Florida, we could not WAIT to get to Lighthouse Doughnuts for breakfast! My visit May 10th was horrible. They must have changed owners/so they really should not be able to use the name...false advertisement! The breakfast sandwiches were once "to die for"...fresh scrambled eggs etc. On this visit we watched as... More

Not only does the person there have a strange sense of humor but the bagels were old and cold. The place inside is run down and not a big selection of bagels. Might be a little further for me to go to Einstein Bagels but better than eating something you don't like.

We always make it a point to walk down one or two mornings when we visit. Very good donuts-they do not take cards(or did not) so bring cash-if you forget-they have an atm on site.

These donuts are amazing! Go early because they can run out of your favorites. Great sandwiches too! Nice family business.

Hot coffee, great pastries...very busy! Outside seating also available. Many people ordering a breakfast sandwich on the morning I visited, so it must be very popular.

The building looks like a lighthouse and maybe it was at one time, we aren't sure. We don't eat a lot of sweets, so we visit only once when we're in IRB, but always look forward to the delicious donuts and pastries and excellent coffee. There is limited seating inside, but there is an outdoor area with tables as well.... More

They sell out during high season so be sure to be there by 9 or 9:30. Yesterday, they had no donuts left at 10:30. They take cash only which is a pain but if you plan ahead, that's not a problem. They do have an ATM inside but who knows what the fees are there? Not too expensive - three... More
