Long's has been making the best donuts in Indiana since 1955. They're a staple in Indianapolis and Southport. My dad used to get a box of Long's almost weekly for his employees for decades. I live in California, but I make a point to grab...donuts at one of the two Long's locations each visit! These are no frills donuts. I've never been a fan of overly decorated, super decadent, sickeningly sweet Instagrammable donuts. If that is what you're looking for, you won't find them at Long's. The staff greet you with friendliness and efficiency. I was even complimented on my shirt today. I'm a sucker for a compliment on my eccentric style. 😂 Their thin yet fluffy, delicately sweet glazed donuts are so delicious. It's the only donut I've ever eaten more than one of (ok, today I had two 😁) where I haven't felt like I was gonna explode or have a cavity after. Eating a Long's glazed donut is pure pleasure and joy combined into one slightly off kilter ring. A must for every Hoosier and visitor to Indy.More

Purchased a white birthday cake for pick up Friday at 6:30 pm. Cost $35 including a dozen donuts and had the cake at the party and it was so dry and crumbly. I had 10 guests and everyone agreed that it was very dry. I’m...not sure when it was made but it tasted a few days old. Very disappointed and a complete waste of money.More

We had a couple of sweet treats that we really liked and a couple that were okay and one we didn’t like. The service was fast even though the line was long, and the prices were right.

Best doughnuts on the south side. They have a great selection and are always fresh. Cash only. Lines can be long but they get you in and out quickly.

Cash Only....I get it, I don't have an option. Employees handling cash and not changing gloves shouldn't be an option. "Care for a side of Covid with those doughnuts ?"

Let me start by saying that l truly love longs products, they have been my constant favorite for 35+ years. That being said, my experience yesterday has put a damper on my feelings toward your establishment. I needed a birthday cake and called the bakery...on southport road their person said that they have the very one I wanted, but he was sorry he can not hold it for me, he told me this at least three times to make sure I knew, i even said to him i understand and told him i am on my way. I drove to the southport longs went in and said oh you sold the quarter sheet cake the lady said no we saved it for you in the back I said oh thank you, we had them put a Birthday message on it,and picked out a few other things, then when I was being rang up the worker at the beginning of the counter yelled that that was not my cake ,,she was HOLDING IT FOR THIS MAN WHO CALLED IN. AT this point she let me know that the message I had put on can be easily removed and my cake will given to the other man. I told her that I was told there are no holds and it was first come first serve. She again told me the cake was his. To save the arguement my wife and I left, i feel as though i was not treated well at all.More

Forget about your diet and have a doughnut or two! They are amazing! So light and fluffy! Everything they sell is well worth the drive!

A 'must' stop when I'm visiting Indy. Called ahead and placed an order. Picked it all up when we came into town. Excellent brownies and donuts. They also have cream filled Long John's, which are not found everywhere. Prices are very reasonable but bring cash...because they do not take plastic!More

Excellent donuts and other assorted pastries. Most items are heavy on being sweet and with sugar. Cash only. Friendly staff.

I loved Long’s donuts for years, while living in Indiana, although usually visited the 16th street location. It’s been a couple years since I now live in Ohio. Visited this location at 11:30am and ordered a dozen yeast donuts. There were racks of what looked...like fresh donuts visible in back. The lady went back, and a couple minutes later came back with the white box. Paid, left the store, and when I got outside, opened the box and the donuts were cold. They had obviously been in the refrigerator. Not only were they cold but the flavor was off - actually, these were probably the worst donuts I’ve had in a couple years. Extremely disappointing!More

Long's is justifyably famous for their donuts. The yeast version is unique...there is just nothing else that tastes like it, melting on the tongue. I live fifty miles away, but whenever I'm anywhere close to Southport I have to stop in. And my order always...includes a half-dozen cream horns...gotta have those, too!More

These are the best donuts in town! You will likely need to wait in line if going in the morning, but it’s worth the wait! Be sure to take cash as that’s all they accept. Try the chocolate stick donut!!
