“The only place for doughnuts - better than krispy's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Bennett's both downtown Fort Meyers and now the new branch on Sanibel Island are AMAZING! I used to travel all the way down to downtown Fort Myers just to get my fix but now I can just hop accross the bridge and get it in Sanibel. Bennett's is always a highlight when I visit. I have never tasted doughnuts like these and I am NOT a doughnut person. These doughnut are light and fluffy not doughy or heavy. they are made fresh everyday and the flavours are really original. My parents stick with the traditional glazed and cinnemon sugar but I have made it my mission to try a different one each time. One time I had the maple bacon - yes it actually had bacon on it and it was weirdly really good. This time I tried the heath bar which again was super and we all split one of their famous pecan sticky buns which were a hevanly goo of goodness. What Bennett's is also excellent at is coffee. The coffee there ( and I am usually not a filter coffee person) is smooth and you can pick your strength as they have several pots of diffrent blends on the brew. I like mine strong and even though I usually drink esspresso their fliter coffee did the job and was so smooth and rounded. My parents sware by their light brew. The breakfast sandwiches are healthy and tasty for those who want protein or don't like sweet stuff. It is well worth a trip on your way to the beach!

“Coffee is GREAT! can't beat the Glazed dounut either”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Short and simple, this place has done a wonderful job with coffee in roasting there own home brews, buy it by the cup, buy it by the bag and or bring it home. The prices compare to Starbucks, it's a small place and has just opened up it's second store, but homey and nice, Bob has done a nice job as a local businessman. Come on down and enjoy!

“Donuts to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Best donuts of anywhere around Ft. Myers. Need to get there early as this place is no secret with the locals. Strange flavors but brave it and you will not be disappointed.

“Maple Bacon Donuts Rule!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Homemade donuts are my weakness. The selection is awesome. The lines are long, but well worth the wait! Maple Bacon donuts are my boy's favorite. Great staff and the lines move quickly. Great coffee selections to go with breakfast.
