Heard they give out free donuts at times and food was good. So we decided to try it. We weren't impressed though.

The "Happy Donut" restaurant is a quaint, almost undetectable gem seated in a small strip mall, on Highway 98, just three short miles from the main gate of Hurlburt Field. Run by a sweet couple who work with limited help, this company churns out freshly prepared donuts daily, and offers a modest, yet satisfying menu. As Happy Donut has limited hours (currently 5am until 2pm), it caters to the breakfast and lunch crowd from the nearby base and also many locals for breakfast on the weekends. Unique menu items for this restaurant include Bulgogi (Korean BBQ beef), Yakimando (fried Korean dumplings), and probably the best patty melt in town. While each of these items is attractive for lunch, one would be remiss in not stopping by for a traditional, well-priced breakfast of pancakes, eggs, or biscuits with gravy. As each selection is typical for a small breakfast establishment, the menu items may not leave a lasting memory of Happy Donut. What you experience in atmosphere, from the hundreds of customer photographs on the walls to the warm welcome each customer receives, will certainly bring you back again and again.
