Stopped into Long's at the recommendation of a staff member. Bought donuts for everyone. These donuts seriously are the best in all of Indy. I recommend blueberry. They also have a seasonal pumpkin cake donut now. Very reasonably priced. But you do need to bring cash. No credit/debit cards or checks accepted. Bosses win over your team and buy them... More

Hands down the best place to go for fresh doughnuts! It's rare to walk in and not find the place hoping with people craving their delicious baked goods. Don't be afraid when you walk in and the line is snaked around - it generally moves pretty quickly. Bring cash - they do not accept cards. That very small inconvenience is... More

Small donut shop (and other baked goods) that has very good selection of donuts. Better than Dunkin' Donuts, etc. Cash only.

Good stuff! Visit the legend! You and your pocket book will never be disappointed here. Heed the advice... know your order before it's your turn in line.

My colleagues were convinced that I had not had a REAL doughnut until I had a LONG'S doughnut. They were right. I had two before I had to stop myself. Bring extra cash. Arrive early for the best selection. Rationalize your need to hog all the doughnuts, but instead just buy extra to share with comrades and loved ones.

The best donuts I've ever had. They only take cash so make sure to stop by an ATM before you get in line. The line may being, but it moves fast. Don't waste time standing around. Know your order by the time you get to the front. Guests and management frown upon an indecisive customers when it's their turn to... More

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
