Bennett’s Fresh Roast has to be one of our all-time fave coffee places. From 2011-14, Alison and I use to live in beautiful Fort Myers just off the Palm Tree lined McGregor Boulevard. I had graduated law school and we found a beautiful fixer-upper amongst the rows of mansions in what seems to be a hybrid of mid-1900s and Art Deco inspiration.
One of Fort Myers’ flagship MUST-DOs is also just off McGregor Blvd and close to the eclectic Main Street that is captured and revived so neatly by the city – Bennett’s Fresh Roast. Founded in part by former radio personality C. David Bennett, the coffee shop roasts over 800lbs of coffee a month and makes all their donuts in-house in an array of decadent flavors. Watch us give’em the good old taste test along with our experience at the Ford and Edison Winter Estates below. For those of you who don’t drink coffee (like me sometimes and the kids), they also have freshly-squeezed juices!
They also serve-up a friendly and relaxed atmosphere of a mom and pop shop and treat you like you’re neighbors you’ve known for years!
So, if you just happen to be staying or wintering at one of Fort Myers’ many campgrounds, rv resorts, or hotels, plan a half day to go and get yourself a treat and then take a step further back in time to wander through the grounds and architecture that make-up the Ford and Edison Winter Estates. General admission per adult is $25 and kids are free.
Don’t miss the 2nd largest Banyan Tree in the world!! It is definitely a sight to see and the K girls wanted to just climb all over it!
