“I'm drooling just thinking about them.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We wish this plave was a "best kept secret" in Fort Myers so we could get in during 'season' and not have to wait until summer for our donuts! Even on the last Saturday in June, we still had to stand in line for our favorite (Almond Coconut and glazed) donuts and fresh roast 'bold' coffee. The line moved slow due to first-timers taking phone photos of all the donuts in the case. It was fun to watch. We'll be back again next weekend ...

“Not your ordinary donuts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a must visit place for donut lovers! Not the mass produced donuts we are used to eating. Eat em outdoors in the shade. Had a great assortment of teas! Tea drinkers are not left out.

“No health food need apply.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Stopped in for lunch and ordered the chicken salad on a croissant and was pleasantly surprised and how fresh and tasty it was. big chunks of chicken and the croissant was very fresh even though i ordered after 1:30pm. Also had a coffee with the orange/coconut doughnut which was amazing. They were out of the ones topped with bacon, i was told those usually go pretty early in the day. Definitely a place I will be returning to.

“This place is awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Found this place during a visit in April 2013 and we LOVED it! Their donuts are so fresh and tasty, I would have a hard time picking a favorite. Their coffee was really good too. Loved that they had indoor and outdoor seating and they are VERY pet friendly! Loved that feature. This place seems to promote a friendly atmosphere where you can go in and talk with anyone there. We can't wait to go back there on our next visit. I HIGHLY recommend this place!
