Takes me back 30 years.

Thomas Donuts reminds me of places when I was a child. The place my parents would send me ( with the "take your little brother with you"), to get us out of their way for a while. While the place we went had ice cream, Thomas' has donuts! I noticed a shelf with name labeled coffee mugs and realized... read more

Simple, old-fashioned donuts - nothing fancy here, no bacon on maple, no "artisanal" boho overwrought interpretation of a simple pleasure. Just donuts, mostly under a buck each, that beckon you back to that pure and uncomplicated concept of little circles of fried dough (yeast and cake) coated in some form of sweetness. Take this simple concept and set it across... More

Stopped here for breakfast and it was great! I got the sausage biscuit and gravy (wonderful), husband got a kolache (he enjoyed it) and we shared two doughnuts, The key lime was our favorite!

We came here for breakfast biscuits and left with half dozen donuts too! Sausage biscuit with gravy was very good (especially the biscuits) but gravy a little salty. Not sugar rush here--BUT I must admit we each had a donut before breakfast and Hubby had another afterwards. The Key Lime filled donut is exceptional and I am trying to control... More

Website: http://thomasdonutandsnackshop.com/ Menu: http://thomasdonutandsnackshop.com/menu/ Phone: (850) 234-8039 A very laid back, casual breakfast and lunch restaurant open from 6am-3p everyday of the year, across Front Beach Road from the beach. You can order either outside or go inside to order. You can sit inside or out on picnic tables under umbrellas. The homemade donuts and Texas-style kolaches are to die... More

This place is a local favorite. If you come in Spring or early summer be prepaired to wait in a long line - the donuts are that good!

I live locally (now)and can tell you that EVERYONE who lives here knows this place. The donuts are awesome. I've lived in New York and several other places-this place is outstanding. It may look like a shack, but get there early as there will be a long line for the best donuts you have ever tasted.

How can you pass up a part of old Panama City Beach history, I rather pay homage to old establishments being a history buff. Great Location for a stop and view of the ocean. But that is were this visit really stopped. Had a craving for a couple of regular Coney Dogs (not footlongs), and an order of chili cheese... More
