We enjoyed walking to the bakery, getting a breakfast sandwich and the famous jelly donuts, which we loved! Bread is delicious! We also have their lunch sandwiches (Tuna, grilled cheese and cheesesteak ones) and were delicious! I wish I got more donuts to take home! We definitely cannot wait to go back and try everything else!

Bread, Cakes, Donuts, Cookies, Sandwiches -------- it's all super - people have started to find out about Ferrara's for their breakfast and lunch sandwiches - fresh and great ingredients - you won't be sorry you stopped here - mostly take out - but there is room on the side to sit and eat - would love to see this outside...

If you want a really good jelly donut with lots of jelly and great tasting donut, this is the place to go. Get there early as the line can be long but well worth it. Other donuts and pastries are just as good and good bread too. Super inexpensive too.

Pork roll sandwiches perfectly prepared and completely satisfy your savory cravings. But the sweet tooth is in heaven here as well. Best doughnuts, cookie, sticky buns and coffee ever. If you haven't stopped here while on the island you must! Staff is so great too.

They advertise Best jelly donuts in the World... oh yes they are... but the crumb cake tops all crumb cakes tons of crumbs. Grab your donuts, head to beach and enjoy now that the crowds are gone!!!!!

We've been "regulars" here over the past 5 years. All donuts & pastries are winners vs. any local or commercial shop i.e Dunkin, Crispy Creme etc. However, this year, we learned that they changed the recipe for their Crumb Buns - less butter in topping & cake not as moist. Too bad! To fill trhe void we actually bought Entemann's... More

Great donuts, baked goods and sandwiches! We start our mornings there, every day! Parking is on the side of the building and they are open all day. We finish our day at The hot beach with a cold delicious ice cream!

Jelly doughnuts are amazing. PB&J doughnut is my second favorite. If you're a cinnamon bun fan, stop here and try theirs...awesome as well. Their pork roll and egg sandwiches are made to order and the staff is the icing on the cake so friendly and helpful and always smiling. A true LBI breakfast gem!

Someone that lived down here told me about this place. It lived up to its expectation. Has reasonable prices for breakfast sandwiches ($5) and a dozen of variety gourmet donuts was $15. My fav was the PB&J.

It's possible to put too much jelly in a donut. Sure, it's my opinion, and yes, the donut itself tasted okay, and yes, the jelly was very good. There was so much jelly in the donut that certain bites were just mouthfuls of jelly. We had purchased some glazed donuts that became vehicles for the jelly that oozed out of... More
