This is the best pastry shop in Indianapolis. You're lucky if there's no line when you go here. They are that good as all locals will confirm the same.

I know the question is coming each time I take my 87 year old father to his eye Doctor...... Do we have time to stop at Longs? Yeast Donuts from there MELT in your mouth. They are my favorite yeast donut anywhere.

This local bakery has been around a long (no pun intended) time. It produces very tasty doughnuts and other sweets that are delicious. The people are friendly and responsive to the customers' needs. Be careful: They only accept CASH!

I have been a loyal Long's customer my entire life, and I have yet to find better donuts in Indy. Nowhere else will you get the value and quality that Long's offers. The selection of donuts and baked goods is vast, and every item that I have tried has been delicious! I swear by Long's Bakery and I will continue... More

Long's donuts are seriously the best donuts I've ever had. I wasn't even a donut person before I had Long's. My favs are Blueberry Cake donut and Boston Cream Donut. Bring cash though, as I believe that is still their only form of payment. There can be a line at times, but worth it.

Does this place even need a review? People not only in Indianapolis, but living miles away come and stop at this humble donut shop and wait patiently in long lines because every bit of their donuts and cakes is a treat to the taste buds! I love all of their donuts and brownies, they also keep cakes which I haven't... More

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!
