Lunch: 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, his donuts gained international attention on the Cooking Channel's Donut Showdown. That's also where he debuted the donut dog, a popular lunch sandwich. The lunch menu also includes freshly prepared soups and huge salads. The meats for his panini's are roasted in house daily and they're full of flavor. Perhaps one of the best sandwiches on the menu is the lobster roll. Full of claw and knuckle meat, the lobster salad rests in an authentic New England hot dog bun, toasted in butter. Be sure to save room for dessert. Besides his famous donuts, Bennett also makes a mean praline bread pudding, juicy apple pie and other sweet treats.

Family Friendly: 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. Bennett's loves kids, both the two and four-legged kind. There is a small library for the young ones, and a summer reading program offering free donuts to children when they read a book. On the dog friendly deck, man's best friend is given pillows and treats to make everyone in the family feel welcomed.

Breakfast: 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; it serves strata daily.
