A good stop

We loved the fried shrimp and fish and chips. Staff was very friendly. We found the donuts just okay but we arrived just after noon so they were most likely not as fresh as first thing in the morning

I hope tourists find this place and try their ice cream. I'm not sure Donut & Snack Shop is the best name for this establishment. The large deck with picnic tables was a nice place to sit on a lovely evening after a day at the beach.

donuts were amazing as always. the key lime filled is my favorite! the steak biscuit is good but the pork chop was a little tough, haven't had this issue before though, maybe just a one time thing.

Thomas Donut has been a staple of my Florida vacations for over 30 years and it never disappoints. The donuts are always best in the AM but be prepared for a short wait outside in the sun. They have expanded their menu and hours in recent years (maybe new ownership, the staff sure seems different lately), but I just stick... More

Good food, for a great price! We did not have to drive far from our stay to get a great breakfast, we all loved the fresh biscuits!

It is typical of us to stop here on our way down to the Nature Coast part of Florida and typical of us to stop here on our way up to Tennessee. Often the only consolation is a pink box of Thomas Donuts as we make that dreaded journey home. Thomas Donuts may be, along with Krispy Kreme, the best... More

It was our first trip back in several years, and as much as most of it has been taken over by high priced restaurants/hotels/resorts, this wonderful little place has remained. The DONUTS are still as good if not better as I remembered them. The line in the mornings were as long as I remembered..lol. Must stop and try one during... More

The donuts were good, but high priced. There was a fly in the donut case and the staff did not seem concerned about it.

Picked up donuts for the family (and a coffee for my return trip to the condo). The choice of donut flavors was large and the varied choice in my "mixed dozen" was a hit with the family. I enjoyed the key lime filled and red velvet as my choices. The coffee was also very good, being hot and freshly brewed.... More
