“best donuts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Yeast donuts melt in your mouth! I have little self restraint with these, can eat 5 in a row! Its a long wait but worth it for these tasty treats.

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

These are the yeast donuts and alligator coffee cakes, the filled pastry, and the fancy cookies that early morning dreams are made of. A must visit when in Indianapolis. Bring cash, it is the only way you'll get a donut here and 16th street location is the best!

“Best of Indy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Not only is the best donut in Indy but it is one of the best things about being in Indy.

Besides the donuts get the cinnamon rolls and the brownies.

“A hometown favorite since 1955!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Patience is a virtue when you visit Long's Bakery near 16th & Lafayette Rd. In the middle of the day, it is not uncommon for the lines to be out the door. Be patient - it's worth it. While waiting to place my order on a late Sunday afternoon, I had the opportunity to read the magazine article hanging on the wall that had been written about Long's several years ago. It was interesting to read about its start & how long they have been in business. You will NEVER find another yeast donut as delicious & melt-in-your-mouth as these. They don't even have time to put them on the display shelves because they sell out so quickly. If you can get them warm - OMG! Reasonable priced & outstanding - those are the reasons I've been eating them for 59 years!!!
