After reading all the good reviews I had to try this place. Biggest letdown ever. The service was terrible, with grumpy people working there. They had very limited variety of donuts or any baked goods. I decided to at least try one of the powdered donuts. I have had better massed produced donuts. So many other better donut shops and...

My husband has been eating Marvel's donuts since he was a kid. They're indescribably delicious and you can watch them being made. It's a great "show" for the kids first thing in the morning. Make sure you get at least 2 per person. We only buy the originals though - cinnamon. Strictly carry out! During the summer, the line is... More

Can't beat this place for donuts or crumb buns. The donuts are as fresh as fresh can be and usually served piping hot. Great spot for coffee as well. Convenient parking lot located right next door. And best of all they open early!

When Jack's Bakery closed some years ago we thought nothing could replace these treats, but then we discovered Marvel's Bakery!!! What a delicious taste experience! The donuts are made fresh while you watch and their crumb buns and bagels are the best we have ever tasted. The smell is intoxicating and the staff is very friendly which makes the short... More

The woman who owns this place is sweeter than her treats. Her donuts are glistening hot, cranked out constantly and served with love. My bagel was one of the best I have ever tasted and I looooooove bagels. Steve had his daily LBI Taylor Pork Roll fix and declared it excellent. Hate to say it, Crust and Crumb, even though... More

Basic donuts cooked in a donut making contraption right before your eyes before being rolled in cinnamon sugar. Show up between 7:30am and 9:30am and they're guaranteed to be hot... though you may have to stand on line a few minutes. Some people come in and just order dozens. They've been making these for at least 35 years, though this... More

Go to Marvels and you will be treated to the best donut - ever! Made fresh on front of your eyes on a machine dating back to who's knows when. Take them home to your family when they're still warm in the paper bag. (If you can make it home without devouring the dozen) The staff is friendly and funny.... More

I can pass a Dunkin Donuts with ease. Ignoring a Krispy Kreme storefront is a tad harder. The morning donuts here are to die for. I even stopped in near closing time (note: it's like at 3PM) and they were still OK - not like the hot morning, no need to chew, wonderful ones, but still good enough. Note that... More

Marvel's donuts and rolls (we go to the one in Beach Haven Terrace) are a summer tradition. The donuts are made fresh (cake, dipped in cinnamon and sugar) and the rolls (pecan and cinnamon) are as well. The rolls could use a little more "umph" (more cinnamon maybe) but are fine - but it's the donuts that keeps us coming... More
