Crazy Good!

One of the "BEST" bakeries in the country! There is nothing that isn't worth having, but my favorite is the Cinnamon Fried. Be prepared to wait in line, but it is worth the wait.

Long's is a staple for everyone in Southport and surrounding areas. I've had them growing up and have them on occasion now (when I allow myself the luxury!). They always have been and always will be the best donuts you'll ever eat. Do yourself a favor and try them if you haven't already..you'll be hooked!

I though Krispy Kremes were the best until I found Long's Bakery. Oh MAN are these good! I can't stop eating them! I agree with some of the other reviewers, that the employees aren't the most friendly or customer service oriented, but I don't mind putting up with that to get these amazing donuts. Not only are they delicious, but... More

I am a southsider who remembers a bakery by the University of Indianapolis, now called UINDY. The name of this bakery was University Heights bakery, a little hole in the wall. I was devastated when they closed, then a co-worker introduced me to Long's and I have been hooked. I can not drive by there without stopping for donuts. In... More

Returned after having been away for some time. Maybe it was the day and time I went, early afternoon on a Wednesday vs. a Saturday AM, but the selection was much more limited. The good news was I walked in and placed my order, no waiting! The donuts were good but the selection was more sugary than previous visits and... More

Love going to longs but the employees are very rude. They usually run out of doughnuts early in the day and won't make more. I still go back because the doughnuts are so good but dread it because of the employees. I hear the other location had better customer service.

No donut here in Florida can compare to Longs. Everytime I visit my hometown of Indianapolis, I stop here. It's a popular place and the lines can get long, but it's well worth the wait. The smells are free!

Excellent place for donuts which is confirmed by the line that is frequently out the door. No worries though, they move fast and will have you out in no time. I go there anytime we want a special treat for breakfast. The donuts aren't too sugary like a lot of chain places. The only downside is that they are cash... More

It's and institution, in Indianapolis, for good reason. The donuts are fresh and very tasty. Don't be afraid of the lines. On a Saturday or Sunday I've been there with probably 30 people in front of me. It goes very fast. Many people know what then want the the service is quick. 30 people line expect 20 minutes in line... More
