This place was recommended to us by a friend so we checked it out this morning. I had a kolache and a key lime donut. Both were absolutely delicious!! We will be coming back tomorrow morning for another round!!

Donuts were good! Keylime donut was delicious and their Texas Style Kolaches couldn't get any better - one of the best Kolache ever even in Texas - Great service;however the lady who may have been in charge was deliberately rude to her staff - pushing them out of the way and yelling at them about picking things up they dropped...

Very Good but I personally thought it was a little too expensive. Not even a price break when I bought a dozen. That was disappointing.

We went for breakfast and had several items. The cinnamon roll was the best. We also liked the kolaches. After that, nothing was great. The apple fritter was terribly overcooked. The glazed and chocolate glaze were very average. The food was worth three stars, but the blonde working the front was so rude it gets two stars.

We love small, local fresh donuts and these really hit the spot. Tried the chocolate frosted sprinkled with real bacon crumbs, key lime stuffed, and sour cream. Sour cream was sweet, key lime was slight tang with gentle lime flavor and bacon was great for those who love their bacon! Pre-ordered some apple fritters as they were highly recommended. Can't...

We are quite sure what the hype is about this place. We waited forever in-line and the cake donut was literally nothing but grease. The cinnamon rolls were small and just good. My husband liked this biscuit sandwiches, but nothing to write home about. Filled donuts were pretty good however. We only went once as again, we think this place... More

Love this place. The donuts melt in your mouth. But if you go during season, get ready to wait. there was a line every time we went. it would take 20 minutes to get donuts. it would be great if they added more staff. But I will say, it's worth the wait!

We asked our hotel front desk staff where the closest place to get donuts was located (expecting a krispy kreme or dunkin) and they directed us to Thomas Donuts on Front Beach Road about four miles west of where we were staying. We didn't actually "get it" at first, but upon arriving you see lines of people and you know... More

Heard it was "the place" for Donuts and weren't disappointed. Holy cow, the line starts early and lasts all day! They have two windows out front, but our local contact told us to go inside (which we did) and we were served almost immediately. And the Donuts were just out of this world! Best value for the money anywhere, any... More

These are fresh donuts that taste great and are a tremendous values, especially for the beach front location. A little drive west of central PCB but worth the short drive. They open at 6am and the popular items go quickly. During the week the line is manageable to nonexistant but grows crazy on the weekends. Save your sanity and go... More
