Long's has two locations in the Indianapolis area. This Southport location is the smallest and thus has a tendency to run out of some variety of baked goods, especially in the evenings. Yet, their yeast donuts are among the best tasting in the US (as confirmed by a recent news story). They also specialize in cakes, pies, rolls, brownies, cream... More

Only problem I have ever had with Longs is that you can not use your bank card or credit. Have to use cash. Have wonderful pasties.

When you walk into Long's, depending on the time of day, you'll likely have to wait in line but so worth the wait. The staff is friendlier than they were in the past but they still DO NOT take credit cards. CASH ONLY!!!

This is the best pastry shop in Indianapolis. You're lucky if there's no line when you go here. They are that good as all locals will confirm the same.

I know the question is coming each time I take my 87 year old father to his eye Doctor...... Do we have time to stop at Longs? Yeast Donuts from there MELT in your mouth. They are my favorite yeast donut anywhere.

This local bakery has been around a long (no pun intended) time. It produces very tasty doughnuts and other sweets that are delicious. The people are friendly and responsive to the customers' needs. Be careful: They only accept CASH!

I have been a loyal Long's customer my entire life, and I have yet to find better donuts in Indy. Nowhere else will you get the value and quality that Long's offers. The selection of donuts and baked goods is vast, and every item that I have tried has been delicious! I swear by Long's Bakery and I will continue... More

Long's donuts are seriously the best donuts I've ever had. I wasn't even a donut person before I had Long's. My favs are Blueberry Cake donut and Boston Cream Donut. Bring cash though, as I believe that is still their only form of payment. There can be a line at times, but worth it.

Thank Vanna B
