The quaint neon marquee above the door and the cake decorating window might trigger childhood nostalgia, but it's the air vents along the sidewalk that do the best advertising for Bennison's. The wafting odors of fresh doughnuts and breads is hard to resist. And those doughnuts are tradtional and perfect, eschewing the big-as-your-face, loaded-with-candy trend. It's simply a moist cake doughnut with the right amount of frosting. Seasonally, the bakery serves up pączki and king cake. There are also macarons, soft pretzels, scones, tortes, etc. It's a continual walk-in holiday.
