I love donuts, and I really love chocolate donuts. So when I spotted this place close to were we were staying I had to try it. Donuts were good, but the chocolate ones, not so much. Really strange chocolate icing on them. Not the usual dark colored icing, more like maybe milk chocolate and not much flavor, just sweet. Glazed... More

After reading all the reViews we decided to give this place a try. We got the peaches and cream, key lime and a long john. The donuts were good but nothing special. The prices were special. Way too much for just decent donuts. Sorry but that's my take.

While a lot of places were closed, this location is open and was packed at 0630!! Locals, tourist, snow birds, didn't matter what you were. Everyone was very friendly and the donuts were awesome!!

Best donuts within a 50-mile radius --- even the dolphins wish they could swim across the street from the beach and get their donut fix here! A real "old school" beach experience with fresh baked donuts daily. The Long Johns and Peaches 'n Cream filled donuts are my personal favorites! Buy a dozen and keep your family satisfied and quiet... More

You won't find a better selection or a better tasting donut. Always look forward to the great donuts and service at Thomas's.

This place is amazing for breakfast if you want pasties or breakfast-sandwich fare. Lunch and dinner are also good and a good value and you can sit outside if you choose. Don't miss it! Even if you prefer "fancy," you must experience Thomas's at least once in a lifetime!!

Being Canadian we thrive on our Tim Hortons, coffee and donut breaks. The donuts offered at Thomas Donut, put Hortons to shame Absolutely delicious strawberry Jam Filled donut, and of course one was not enough, red velvet was just as tasty. Wish our condo was Closer, but maybe that's for the best, keep as a special treat .
