Coffee was like water. Breakfast sandwich was terrible. Too expensive for what you received. McDonalds would have been better.

My wife and I tried a variety of items here and we were happy with everything. We visited at breakfast time but would love to go back to try lunch or dinner as well. We highly recommend the fried chicken biscuit breakfast sandwich & the fresh homemade donuts! Across the street is a nice public beach.

Doughnuts are fabulous, but they offer so much more than just that. Indoor beach vibe dining and an outdoor covered picnic tables with a separate ordering area for hand dipped and soft serve Ice cream along with other treats. GREAT STAFF

The night we visited, they were out of a lot of items, but what they did have was very good. I think this was due to the unexpected influx of people from Hurricane Matthew. The superman ice cream was absolutely delicious! The service was friendly and efficient.

I have gone to Thomas Donut shop every year during our annual pilgrimage to Panama City Beach. This year was no different, except for the filled donuts. Their freshness and tasty flavor still deserve 5 stars. But the amount of filling they are using only deserve 2.5 stars. Last year and the years before you would have filling in every... More

Why? You need to reserve your donuts. They are that good. Truth: I am not a donut eater. However when one is in the presence of real donuts, exceptions are made. These donuts made a believer out of me.

My niece asked for Krispy Kreme Donuts and a cupcake for her birthday instead of a traditional cake...well, being in Panama City Beach for her birthday proved to be a bit tricky to get her the KK's she dreamed of as it was a good hike back to PC itself to get them from the condo we where we stayed....

Tradition when we go to the beach to get donuts at Thomas'. We love the cake donuts especially the red velvet donuts. The lines are long in the summer not to bad when we went in October.

This lace is SO good. I get their donuts, which are to die for, homemade and very fresh. I've also gotten a milkshake, which was so so and took forever to get. Overall, they get a A +++++++.

So we've driven by this place a bunch of times. Looking for some breakfast places decided we needed to stop there. Well...apparently this place is popular. We were in a line the was HUGE! That is a testament to how popular this place is, I suppose. We ordered a dozen donuts of all kinds (didn't have a donut I didn't... More
