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.
- 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 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 Family Friendly Because: Bennett's is a hot local spot with comforting, homemade foods for breakfast and lunch; from decadent donuts to healthful salads.
