My aunt is living in an assisted living facility in the area and sent me to Long's to bring her a long-missed treat. The homemade donuts were great and prices were very reasonable. The "old time" feel to the place was marvelous. I will bring my aunt other bakery items from Long's. Only issues are the long lines and slow... More

The best donuts I have ever had. The line was long but it moved fast. They only take cash so make sure you have some on you. Whenever I go to the south side I will be stopping.

If you have a favorite donut you need to try the ones here. They are amazing! They also have great pasteries of other kinds including cakes made to order that are really really good!

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.
