This place must be good, considering we are willing to make the 20 minute drive just for coffee and donuts! The donuts are so fresh and never disappoint. We've tried their classic glazed, twists, the toffee one, and a few others, and they've all been delicious. The coffee is also great, a nice change from chained coffee places. I've never... More

A wonderful place to take family for a breakfast who are visiting from out of town. Fresh pastries and excellent coffee. Nice atmosphere and always popular with locals. Must see!

This place is off the beaten path - we never would have seen or heard of it if our sister who works in the area had not told us. We went around 9 on a weekday thinking it would be less busy. We were lucky to get the last parking spot and there was a line inside to order although... More

I had just returned from a donut and pastry tour of the Pacific Northwest (think Seattle's Top Pot and Portland's Blue Star) when I heard about this place in my own backyard. I took my mom along and we arrived around noon. They had already sold out of a bunch of varieties, so I recommend going early for the best... More

The coffee and dounuts were very good. Both were very fresh. You have to get there early, because it does get crowded.

This is a very simple place to review, Everything is Fantastic!! The donuts are fresh and very good, the coffee hot and everything is reasonably priced unlike some of the chains which think their coffee is worth twice as much as it is!! If you want a good place for coffee and to hang out with your friends, or just... More

Minimal choices, but vary daily, and always delicious. The service is good and there is both inside and outside dining. The coffee is excellent and there is a French Press to go. The donuts, however, are the shining stars. Maple bacon has put Bennett's on the map.

Went here for coffee and donuts. A little hard to find, tucked away. Worth the search, though! Small parking lot, but there was an adjoining lot which MIGHT be for customers too? Coffee was very good, with free refills. I tried both their coffee ju jour and the house coffee. Both were very tasty, not too strong or weak, and... More

A group of us stopped here when we were in FL at the beginning of September. We a little variety...I had ham breakfast sandwich, my husband had the sausage breakfast sandwich, and then we tried a variety of doughnuts which were all amazing. My favorite is the coconut almond doughnut. They are super fresh. This is a must try coffee... More
