We've been hooked on Thomas' ever since a friend recommended it to us and now we visit every time we're in PCB. My personal favorites are the cream filled long johns and the red velvet cake donuts, but they're all pretty good. The biscuits and other breakfast items are also pretty good. My only complaint is that the last time... More

Stood on line for 45 min...was not that impressed with the food. Overrated. Kolaches were not that good compared to the ones in Texas.

The cake donut... that is all that needs to be said. Their donuts are delicious and affordable. The blueberry, cake, and key lime were our favorites. I love chocolate donuts but theirs was the only one I didn't like. Try this place, you won't be sorry!!

Thomas Donuts is freaking incredible. On summer peak weeks, get ready to wait a while for these succulent little fried bits of heaven. I over-did it with apple fritters and one of their smoked sausage biscuits. Im blissfully miserable. Don't leave PCB without hitting up Thomas Donuts. I'm for real.

We love donuts so when we visited Panama City Beach and heard about Thomas Donuts and their competitor, Donut Hole, we decided to compare them one day. The location and setting for Thomas Donuts was just fantastic! It was situated on the main road by the gulf with nothing obstructing your view except cars that occasionally parked in front of...

The donuts are good; however, I think the donuts are just as good in the local grocery store bakery (and cheaper). They do serve some hot lunch/breakfast items; however, I have not had this. The draw is that it is on the beach. It is very busy and parking isn't very convenient.

We have been going here for years. Fond memories of waking up before the family to make the trip to Thomas' for a dozen of their best and surprising them once they woke up. All fourof us have our favorites. Key Lime, Sour Cream , Lemon filled and Fancy Toppings.

We always get donuts and their kolaches. I love the lemon filled donut and the maple bacon donut. Bacon on a donut! It was SO good. We always get our food to go, but the service is always fast and friendly. This is a must visit if you are in PCB.

We were only in Panama City Beach 4 days and visited Thomas Donut Shop twice for breakfast donuts! They were the best donuts on earth! Apple fritters were my favorite!
