“Best Donuts”
Review of Marvel's Bakery

Marvel's Bakery
Ranked #3 of 3 Dessert in Ship Bottom

The sugar donut is to die for. The donut machine is cool to watch it go from dough to donut to sugar topped. We go every year, wait in extremly long line, chat it up with other Marvel's lovers and get the smell of donuts in our hair once in the door. Yum!

I was told to get a doughnut from here Because they were so good and you could watch them make your doughnuts, so I had high expectations. Well we all ordered doughnuts which we did not watch being made- they were taken off shelf which is fine but I was seriously disappointed with the taste! My kids couldnt even eat their jelly donoughts and I only ate 1/2. Rubbery. Maybe we were too late in the day. Not sure what time they close but we were there about 10am.

Been going to Marvel's for years and we love the cinnamon sugar donuts the best by far. That old donut machine makes real donuts that you will not find anywhere. The big lines every morning tell the story. An LBI tradition that we have been going to for 30 years that we hope will last forever. Simply the best!

Our daughter raved so much about these delicious donuts she had enjoyed warm in the mornings of her youth that our curious houseguest picked some up on her morning walk. Our favorite remains the cinnamon sugar donuts but the powdered were a close second. The other varieties were light and yummy according to our family. Glad they stayed on the island! They offer sandwiches too but did not try them.

The Marvel Bakery is a throw back to days you when you placed your sandwich order, the preparer was usually the owner or a relative of the owner, who kibitz with you,as the prepared your sandwich, put little extra mayo, or and extra pickle , either case you got the feeling that this was a really family venture which they enjoyed doing day to day.
The two women behind the counter were friendly, could probably make the sandwiches blindfolded, they 've done them so many times and low key in their nature.
The Turkey Swiss and mayo with a tomato was delicious.
Donuts ,bought and tried at home were sugar and chocolate covered. They were good .
I certainly will come again either for donuts in the morning or a sandwich for lunch. I recommend Marvel's Bakery is worth a stop
