Best Donuts I Ever Ate...Period

They still make their donuts the old fashioned way - with flavor that makes you want to keep coming back. Other donuts are light on flavor, bland or just taste like sugar. Not these ones! Make the drive and buy your favorite kind. You'll be back.

Only take cash! But worth the trip to the ATM. Excellent doughnuts and good service. Be prepared to wait in line. A great Indianapolis tradition.

Absolutely the BEST DONUTS!! If you get lucky you can grab a dozen when they are warm. The place is always busy and Sandy is a sweetheart.

Long's is a local staple and I love that they've never changed their old-fashioned cash-only style. The line is always long, but that's how you know a place is good, and they get you in and out pretty quickly. They are famous for their plain yeast, but you should also try the long john - particularly the cream-filled caramel-iced one.... More

Third and actually probably the MOST important get the glazed,... More

There was a line which was good because one of the regulars in line informed us that we needed to order their glazed donut warm which was great advice. We ordered an assortment - the glazed was just amazing. It was warm and so sweet but... More

This bakery has the best of everything they have to offer. The brownies are wonderfully fresh and the frosting on them is perfection in chocolate. Donuts are equally as good with a great variety. Never a disappointment in the baked goods. Be prepared to hopefully know what you're looking to buy because even though you may spend some time in... More
