Long’s Bakery gets national recognition

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An Indianapolis doughnut shop has been named of the best in the nation.

Long’s Bakery on 16th Street once again made Thrillist‘s list for the Best Donut Shops in America.

The website’s review reads:

On for the second year in a row, Long’s continues to make our list despite a litany of complaints: lines are too long! It won’t accept the Apple Pay on my iPhone! They don’t taste good when you dip them in St. Elmo’s cocktail sauce! But everyone just shut up, get in line wearing your very cool Rik Smits jersey, and spend just over $3 on a half-dozen glazed yeast donuts. There are other kinds, of course, but the glazed are the reason you’ll happily endure the queue. — KA

Yelp reviewers said they also love Long’s brownies, too.

The bakery has been a west side Indianapolis staple for almost 50 years now. WISH-TV’s doughnut-loving Meteorologist Randy Ollis stopped by last year as part of his week-long doughnut adventure. He got an inside look at what goes into making the Circle City treats.
