Doughnut Shops Paradise Coast

When was the last time that you enjoyed a hot doughnut and a freshly brewed cup of coffee from your favorite doughnut shop? National Doughnut Day, which takes place every year on the first Friday in June, is right around the corner and is the perfect excuse to order a dozen (or two) from your favorite doughnut shop.

The doughnut shops of the Paradise Coast are ready to serve you every flavor under the sun, and our real estate agents have put together a guide to help you find the best sweet treats just in time for National Doughnut Day.

  1. Peace Love & Little Donuts – 3106 Tamiami Trail N., Naples, FL 34103
    What started as a home-cooking experiment with an old doughnut machine that would only produce mini-doughnuts has grown into a popular, fast-growing chain called Peace Love & Little Donuts. But don't let the bite-sized nature of these doughnuts fool you! Every bite is packed with flavor, and every doughnut is served with a smile. The toppings available here are unlike anything you'll find at a typical doughnut shop, and these little doughnuts are perfect for sharing with family or friends on National Doughnut Day.

  2. Hello Coffee – 15495 Tamiami Trail N. #106, Naples, FL 34110
    If you can't imagine celebrating National Doughnut Day without a fresh, hot cup of coffee, then Hello Coffee is the place to be. Locally owned and conveniently located close to Naples homes for sale, Hello Coffee is known as much for its excellent bakery as it is for the fantastic coffee that gives the store its name. The shop is currently open for takeout, with a full selection of hot and cold-brewed coffee to go with your doughnut.

  3. Dojo Doughnuts & Coffee – 3370 Pine Ridge Rd., Naples, FL 34109
    Fresh, handmade, artisan-style doughnuts are the name of the game at Dojo Doughnuts & Coffee, which you can find every Sunday at the Pine Ridge Road Farmers Market and at other pop-ups in the Naples area. People from across the Paradise Coast come out for pop-ups to grab some of these delicious doughnuts while supply lasts. You can keep up with the latest pop-up locations on their Facebook page, or make the short trip out to their regular spot at the Farmers Market.

  4. Divine Donuts – 9131 College Pkwy., Suite 145, Fort Myers, FL 33919
    When you want to celebrate with a fresh, delightful doughnut, it's hard to top the selection of Divine Donuts in Fort Myers. This beloved local shop offers more than 200 varieties of doughnuts, with fresh batches baked daily. Choose your favorite classic doughnut style, or branch out with one of the one-of-a-kind treats that you'll only find at Divine Donuts. Of course, you can also grab a cup of coffee or enjoy a hot breakfast before digging into your doughnut.

  5. Bennett's Fresh Roast – 2011 Bayside Pkwy., Fort Myers, FL 33901
    The combination of fresh-roasted coffee and made from scratch doughnuts has made Bennett's Fresh Roast a favorite in the Fort Myers area. Even celebrity chefs Tyler Florence and Alton Brown have enjoyed doughnuts from this Fort Myers shop! Doughnuts on their menu are sure to delight with flavors like classic glazed, maple toffee crunch, and cinnamon sugar. Every doughnut is hand-cut, raised, and then baked with love! 

The doughnut shops are just one of the many reasons life on the Paradise Coast is so sweet. Contact us to buy and sell homes throughout the area.
