I didn't try the donuts everyone was talking about, but I did have a panini and salad for lunch as well as their café du jour! Excellent coffee and the food was good too. It doesn't look like much when you pull up on the outside, but I was pleasantly surprised with a nice shaded outdoor seating area on the... More

We were in Ft Myers to see family and stopped in based on reviews. Definitely worth the stop! Donuts were delicious and so was the coffee.

It was very crowded inside, and the line was long. I thought that maybe that was a good sign. I was definitely fooled! A friend and I stopped in because we had read about Bennett's. I wish we would have just gone to the local Winn Dixie! The donuts would have been much fresher. The maple bacon donut was good.... More

A friend and I stopped in because of the ratings. I ordered a dozen donuts. The maple, bacon donut was the only one that was fresh and tasted good. We ordered cinnamon rolls, pecan rolls, twist donuts, etc. they were awful. I had to throw them away. My grandchildren wouldn't even eat them. I paid $24 for a dozen donuts.... More

Haven't had a doughnut in so long because I'm sick of the same old processed, factory generic ones from places like Starbucks and Dunkin. These are so good! Fresh made and a wide variety of unique options. The coffee was okay but the doughnuts were 10/10. Definitely recommend

Loved the bacon maple donut! Had to try it. Maple toffee crunch, cinnamon swirl bun, famous strata, coffees all really good! We went back another day for gelato and each of the 4 cups (2 were 2 flavor) were enjoyed!

We enjoyed the coffee very much. We had the chilie dog on an eclair and the chicken on an eclair. Each dish cost 9.99, which we felt was way too expensive. Would not order again. We also tries 6 different kinds of their donuts, including the pecan roll. The donuts were good, but we did not care for the pecan... More
