Very small and quaint. Don't know how, but they have the best oatmeal! Sounds simple, but it is delicious. Great home-made donuts and freshly ground coffee.

Thank Sandy W

They have some good donuts! This place is very popular in the medical worker community. Maple bacon donut is awesome! They have a couple of regular breakfast items too but I have not tried them. It's hard to find this place the first time but this is 2013 GPS on phones is normal nowadays. Their coffee is really strong because it is from other countries but I am not used to drinking coffee very often so that's probably why. Coffee is free refills self serve and they have everything you could want to put in it right next to the pitcher. We love Bennett's

We decided to make room for a stop here in our schedule based on the recommendation of a local friend. We stopped for a late afternoon sweet since we were heading to a B&B and knew we wouldn't want breakfast the next 2 days. The donuts were delicious, the staff was friendly and the prices were very reasonable. Don't be surprised by the residential street the GPS may route you through, follow the curve and you'll come right up on it.

Delicious glazed donuts well worth breaking good eating habits. The apple thing not so much. Coffee also good. This place is off the beaten path but worth tracking down.
