We go to Bennett's just about every weekend if possible. The line can be a bit long in season, but we are aware of that and don't mind waiting because we are never disappointed. We always get a couple of doughnuts and if the Strata is still available we are sure to have some of that too. It's delicious!!!

Met up with a friend who introduced me to Bennetts and I must say it was delicious 😋! No other doughnut 🍩 will ever be as good!

After reading the reviews here, I was expecting to be blown away with a fantastic donut. What I found was a donut shop similar to many others in many other locations. I admit there was a variety of flavors, yet that is a familiar situation in donut shops that are not a chain store. Good donuts, but just a donut....

Oh dear, we're sad to learn we didn't live up to your expectations. Please know that our donuts are hand made from scratch. That's, quite honestly, a rarity here in Southwest Florida. But in addition to that we do our best to offer impeccably well-mannered service and, we actually roast our own coffee in shop everyday. We thing that combination... More

After these we tried the orange crush donut, it was so delicious! We do not recommend having these everyday but once is a while is... More

I kind of hate to put it out there that this is a great place for coffee & doughnuts for fear it will become more crowded than it is today. I take my grandson & granddaughter there every time they visit.

After a long absence, decided it was time to get a Bennetts donut. Only thing that keeps me away is carbs. Lol Donuts were light as a feather, just like always. Place was very busy, as compared to insanely busy in season. Always worth the wait.

We stopped here a couple of mornings on our vacation. Don't miss out visiting this place in the morning. The apple fritters are wonderful!

This place is a classic staple of the community and its one of the first places I bring out of town guests. It's just too good to pass up!

Heard a lot about this place decided to go and try it out myself with a friend. Glad we did all we had on this particular visit was coffee and donuts but the donuts are amazing. The food we saw on the surrounding tables looked very good also going back to try some other items.

When in Fort Myers I highly recommend eating here! The toffee donuts will melt in your mouth. These are all hand made and will melt in your mouth. It's a small home with indoor and outdoor seating. The parking is a little tight but it's worth going. You will not be disappointed!
