Perfect spot to grab a delicious coffee, pork roll sandwich or the BEST jelly doughnuts! Consistency is key always delicious and the staff is always kind and friendly and helpful. Places like this make LBI GREAT.

When they advertised as the world's greatest jelly filled Donuts, they aren't lying. We had to take a few dozen home for our friends.

The jelly in their jelly doughnuts is amazing! I wish they bottled it and sold it! All their doughnut flavors are awesome. The staff is wonderful and always smiling and helpful. If you haven't been here you have to stop in.

We enjoyed walking to the bakery, getting a breakfast sandwich and the famous jelly donuts, which we loved! Bread is delicious! We also have their lunch sandwiches (Tuna, grilled cheese and cheesesteak ones) and were delicious! I wish I got more donuts to take home! We definitely cannot wait to go back and try everything else!

If you want a really good jelly donut with lots of jelly and great tasting donut, this is the place to go. Get there early as the line can be long but well worth it. Other donuts and pastries are just as good and good bread too. Super inexpensive too.

Pork roll sandwiches perfectly prepared and completely satisfy your savory cravings. But the sweet tooth is in heaven here as well. Best doughnuts, cookie, sticky buns and coffee ever. If you haven't stopped here while on the island you must! Staff is so great too.

They advertise Best jelly donuts in the World... oh yes they are... but the crumb cake tops all crumb cakes tons of crumbs. Grab your donuts, head to beach and enjoy now that the crowds are gone!!!!!

We've been "regulars" here over the past 5 years. All donuts & pastries are winners vs. any local or commercial shop i.e Dunkin, Crispy Creme etc. However, this year, we learned that they changed the recipe for their Crumb Buns - less butter in topping & cake not as moist. Too bad! To fill trhe void we actually bought Entemann's... More

Great donuts, baked goods and sandwiches! We start our mornings there, every day! Parking is on the side of the building and they are open all day. We finish our day at The hot beach with a cold delicious ice cream!
