The Marvel Bakery is a throw back to days you when you placed your sandwich order, the preparer was usually the owner or a relative of the owner, who kibitz with you,as the prepared your sandwich, put little extra mayo, or and extra pickle , either case you got the feeling that this was a really family venture which they...

I'm trying several of the donuts shops on the island. I am happy to find cake donuts at Marvel's Bakery. It's a cute little bakery joined with a deli. The donut options are limited but look and taste very good. If only I could get my family up early enough to watch the donut machine make them fresh.

Quite possibly the best donuts on the planet. When you get them hot from the oil you really must go sit on the outside bench and eat at least one, immediately. The best donuts on the island, by far.

After reading all the good reviews I had to try this place. Biggest letdown ever. The service was terrible, with grumpy people working there. They had very limited variety of donuts or any baked goods. I decided to at least try one of the powdered donuts. I have had better massed produced donuts. So many other better donut shops and...

Thank you TripAdvisor reviewers. I have passed this place many time and never stopped until today. Donuts to simply die for and the pork roll preparation is amazing on their breakfast sandwiches. Another wonderful breakfast spot added to our summer LBI repertoire! Taking a dozen donuts home with is when we leave this weekend too. Who needs an over priced... More

My husband has been eating Marvel's donuts since he was a kid. They're indescribably delicious and you can watch them being made. It's a great "show" for the kids first thing in the morning. Make sure you get at least 2 per person. We only buy the originals though - cinnamon. Strictly carry out! During the summer, the line is... More

Can't beat this place for donuts or crumb buns. The donuts are as fresh as fresh can be and usually served piping hot. Great spot for coffee as well. Convenient parking lot located right next door. And best of all they open early!

When Jack's Bakery closed some years ago we thought nothing could replace these treats, but then we discovered Marvel's Bakery!!! What a delicious taste experience! The donuts are made fresh while you watch and their crumb buns and bagels are the best we have ever tasted. The smell is intoxicating and the staff is very friendly which makes the short... More

The woman who owns this place is sweeter than her treats. Her donuts are glistening hot, cranked out constantly and served with love. My bagel was one of the best I have ever tasted and I looooooove bagels. Steve had his daily LBI Taylor Pork Roll fix and declared it excellent. Hate to say it, Crust and Crumb, even though... More
