My husband grew up in Indy and has fond childhood memories of biking to the other Long's Bakery location for donuts and chocolate milk, so when we were in the area he couldn't miss stopping for some donuts. I must stay they were delicious! Freshly made with the best ingredients, our whole family loved them!

You won't regret stopping at Longs, despite the odd, out of the way location. The donuts literally melt in your mouth. Usually a long line of people, but service is quick. They are so, so good!

Great yeast doughnuts especially when you get them hot and fresh, they just melt in your mouth. They also have great selection of other bake goods too.

Unless you are there during the first hour they are open, (5:00-6:00), expect a line that actually moves pretty fast, because the regulars already know which yummy donuts they desire. The warm yeast are really hard to beat or resist, but the cream filled long johns are a close second. A great variety that is sure to please all donut... More

A friend told me this is the best doughnut shop in Indianapolis. They were good but not the best I've ever had.

Our eight year old granddaughter is a very picky eater and usually will only eat Mac and cheese, egg whites and cinnamon toast, We told her on a day trip to Indy that she should try one of Long's glazed donuts. She took a bite and finished two before leaving the parking lot. We will not be able to go... More

This is an Indianapolis institution. I love their donuts especially the cake donuts. If you go in the morning, the lines are usually long but moves because they have such great donuts. You can only pay with cash.

Those yeast donuts!!! Excellent! Made fresh everyday and they melt right in your mouth. I'm not sure why, but these days they are always SOLD OUT of yeast donuts hours before close time. I'm not sure why they stop making them at early hours if they know that's their biggest seller. It s quite annoying because this is all I... More
