Bennett’s Fresh Roast Sanibel Island Opens for Business

Bennett’s Fresh Roast opened to lines of hungry customers at 6:00am Tues Jan 7th 2014.

Waiting in the dark on the coldest day of the year, patrons welcomed the popular coffee house to the islands. Featuring a full complement of donut’s, breakfast sandwiches and lunch offerings at very reasonable prices, Bennett’s is sure to be a hit with locals and visitor’s alike.

Situated at  1020 Periwinkle Way next door to the Lazy Flamingo, the former Prudential Realty building has been gutted and redone inside and out in a neo classical style, it’s a very comfortable and cheery open environment.  Al Fresco seating is also available.

Bennett’s Donuts feature sweetened potato dough with 0 trans fat.  Healthy donuts anyone?
