Good Donut with a lot of jelly in them. We had a pork roll, egg and cheese that was good too! Their rolls are homemade.

First night we were here we stopped and got a chocolate covered glazed donut. Only $1 and pretty good. Second day we bought 2 of the "best jelly donuts on the planet".

The sign doesn't lie! These are the best jelly doughnuts on the planet! Outrageous filling in either powder or sugar coating. Fresh filled cannollis are superb and their raisin sticky buns are dreamy. Italian cookies and stuffed breads are fresh and delicious too. The staff is always smiling! A real gem on LBI!

I would happily suffer the lardiest keister in all creation and untold cellulite for one of their pastries. Everything was beyond fresh, the employees handled the crowd like pros, and Steve's Taylor Pork Roll sandwich was loaded with perfectly fried pork roll on a bun that was crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. Great spot!

We bike here every morning when we vacation on LBI in the summer. Love the rolls for sandwiches to take to the beach and we always grab some stuffed breads when we head home. Their jelly donuts are also amazing.

Peanut butter and jelly donuts are a must have. They do not skimp on the jelly. Amazing. Maple bacon so so good. Awesome. We always get them as it's an island must

The ice cream is super creamy, the jelly donut is truly the worlds best and the elephant ears are magnificent. Great place for a little snack or dessert.
