Bennett's Fresh Roast has a bit of a cult following, off the beaten path in downtown Fort Myers. Owned by a longtime, local radio personality C. David Bennett, there is a constant parade of dignitaries, local celebrities, retirees, college students and everyone in between, looking for a caffeine fix from his freshly roasted beans and his bottomless cups. His donuts gained international attention on the Cooking Channel's Donut Showdown. They are hand cut, made from scratch and finished off with a variety of unique toppings; the most talked about being the decadent Maple Applewood Bacon. Morning offerings other than donuts include a breakfast sandwich, a fresh fruit cup with yogurt, steel cut oatmeal with all the fixins and on weekends, a sinfully rich strata. Bennett's has a second location on Sanibel Island.
- Best for Breakfast Because: You'll never look at a donut the same after tasting these made from scratch treats, and tasting his freshly roasted coffee at two locations.
- Best for Lunch Because: This famous local donut shop turns out more than just sweet treats; huge salads, soups and panini's du jour and a killer lobster roll.
- Best for Family Friendly Because: Bennett's is a hot local spot with comforting, homemade foods for breakfast and lunch; from decadent donuts to healthful salads.
