The Donut Hole is sure to be a hit with the kids simply because of the name and the inviting curb appeal. It looks crowded with plenty of cars in the parking lot, so it MUST be good, right? Nope, don't waste your time. This place is way overpriced and overrated. The donuts are good, sure, but not the best... More

We tried to come here last year when we were visiting Destin, but it was too busy each time we tried. This year, we came later in the afternoon and did not have a wait to get seated. The waitress and the folks behind the counter were not particularly UNfriendly, but weren't as welcoming as we might have expected. We... More

We just ran in for donuts and key lime pie. Got a dozen donuts and a whole pie for $20+. Donuts paled in comparison to the donuts we got from Publix. We threw the last 3 away and our kids only ate the topping off of theirs. Pie was tasty. I didn't need a whole one and they offer a... More

Ever since we walked in I knew the service would be terrible. Anyway, wanted to try the patries and doughnuts because of such high reviews. We ordered a cherry danish, blueberry danish, brownie, chocolate doughnut to go and two drinks. The pastries tasted stale, the chocolate doughnut was fresh and tasted ok. It does not compare to Shipleys doughnuts thats... More

There is a reason there's always a line to the door! Every time we have been here we never leave disappointed. The food is excellent! We usually go for breakfast. The omlette is delicious. We have also stopped in in the evening for dessert and their pies are awesome! Definitely a must if you're in destin!

This was our 2nd visit in a year. I like the breakfast but would not have been excited about it if we had the usual wait. Eggs over medium came out hot and properly cooked. The cheese grits lacked flavor. Biscuits and gravy were great. Service this time was so-so. Kids seemed to like the donuts okay. My wife and... More

We went here for breakfast. It was a little awkward standing there waiting for a table BC we weren't greeted walking in and all the tables were full. There was a big group of people just standing there and didn't know what to do. They don't walk you to your table. Apparently when a table opens up and you're at... More
