SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. (July 14, 2015) – Bennett’s fresh-from-scratch donuts made daily aren’t just for breakfast anymore.

Beginning Monday, July 20, Bennett’s Fresh Roast’s Sanibel location will begin offering fresh donuts in the afternoons and evenings.

“With our expanded hours on Sanibel and being open until 9 p.m., our customers were asking to have our mouth watering donuts available in the afternoons and evenings,” said Bennett’s co-owner Frank Albano. “We typically would run out of our morning batches by early afternoon, but now we will have fresh donuts available while supplies last until closing.”

Bennett’s Fresh Roast has prided itself on its fresh-from-scratch donuts made daily and being the only Fort Myers donut shop to serve fresh roasted coffee from the finest beans resulting in the most flavorful and freshest cup of coffee around. For the past seven years, the Bennett’s team has been known for unveiling delicious new donut concoctions from flavors including maple bacon, pumpkin spice, maple toffee crunch, s’mores and more. The shop has also become known for surprising offerings like its limited sale (which sold out) of Kopi Luwak coffee, often called “cat-poo coffee” after the prized bean from Indonesia that’s eaten by wild civets, passed through the animal’s digestive tract, and then collected and processed for brewing.

In addition to fresh roasted coffee and hand-cut-from-scratch donuts, Bennett’s also offers fresh desserts from Bennett’s co-owner Bob Grissinger’s own recipe book including praline bread pudding and lemon bars, giving area residents an alternative for afternoon treats. Bennett’s also features packaged whole bean or ground coffees, breakfast muffins, oatmeal and breakfast sandwiches. On the weekends, Bennett’s Strata (a layered baked breakfast dish) is a regular sellout at its downtown Fort Myers location, while the Strata is available every day on Sanibel. The Sanibel shop also offers a pancake dish for breakfast. Tea lovers may choose from a large variety of Harney & Sons Fine Teas. Lunch offerings including paninis, soups, sandwiches, three signature salads, and Bennett’s ‘Chicken & Donut’ and ‘Donut Dog.’ Bennett’s Sanibel location also offers Artisan Gelato by Norman Love beginning at 11 a.m. daily until closing.

Bennett’s Sanibel shop is located at 1020 Periwinkle Way and is open Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
