I've lived in the area for 10 years and always heard how great they are. I thought the donuts were heavy, the bacon maple was very smokey so it almost tasted burnt. I was really sad I didn't love it.

What a find across the street from Legacy Harbour Marina. Everything made fresh. Great coffee, special donuts, lunch salads and treats. Highly recommended.

Donuts were good. Not the best I've ever had but still pretty dank. Strawberry iced was my personal fav. Biscoff latte didn't live up to expectations it was good until the crushed up cookie on top got all soggy in my drink

Bought a dozen so we could try them all, interesting some doughnuts were tougher than others, the coconut ones for some reason, overall not bad, just not worth the hour drive to & from our hotel.

Today we had the soup and sandwich special at Bennett's Fresh Roast. The tomato basil with noodles was excellent and the Panini was hot and spicy. Love this place!!

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
