Old Fashioned Bakery...Get in Line!

This is a gem in Indy...a bakery where the employees wear white and white hats and they only take cash. There always seems to be a line regardless of the day or time.

Good donuts...but was disappointed in the selection to choose from. Also was a long wait, so if in a hurry I would pass.

First time in Indy. Had to visit Long's based on Trip Advisor reviews. Fortunately, we were prepared for the line and the wait after reading other people's reviews. Donuts were delicious and very reasonably priced. If you like soft donuts with very sweet icing and filling, you will be in heaven. The patrons arrived in quick succession keeping the line... More

How this is the #1 food place in Indy is beyond me. I just went there -- during the afternoon. I waited in a long line (15 minutes). When I got to the front of the line it, it was "who's next?" It is a locals-only type of place. A "yeast" donut is what most would consider a glazed. I... More

It doesn't matter where other donuts come from, Long's have THE best donuts I've ever eaten. I don't know what the different ingredients are, but these donuts have a definite different and better taste. "I always hope it won't be long until I can get some more Long's donuts again."

The glazed yeast doughnuts are among the best in the country. Go early and get them warm! This place oozes "classic". The cinnamon sticks are great. Peanut butter brownies to satisfy the cravings. Too many wonderful choices and not enough room to eat them!

Sure, there will be a line. Sure, they only take cash. Sure, the place looks like it's from the past. Don't let it stop you. BEST bakery in Indy!

Despite the fact they accept ONLY cash; your palate won't care! Just check your pockets for loose change and comevon ahead.

Longs is one of the best bakeries around, while others have come and gone, Longs held fast. I like to believe it's because of their yeast donuts. mmmmmmm...There's none like them, especially if you ask for a warm dozen, they melt in your mouth with warm sugarie goodness. the pecan sticky rolls are to die for too!! Don't let the... More

Go here all the time except when dieting to get the freshly baked and hot donuts early in the mornings. Maybe a little tough some times to find a place to park on the street because of all the customers, Some people buy 3 an 4 dozen at a time for work and meetings, but always have donuts for the...
