The lines are long but the wait is worth it. The glazed donuts are so light and fresh every day. They literally melt in your mouth. They offer every variety imaginable. Eat out or dine in, they have it all, seafood baskets or extra creamy ice cream ... it's all great. Enjoy!

Great tasting donuts and even with a line, it went quickly! There is a variety of them to choose from and they all were delicious.

The last time we visited, it was great! Not so much this time. When we pulled up, outside there were these flying bugs everywhere! Millions of them. Like flying ants or termites. Idk. But once we waded past the bugs, the place just didn't look clean at all. Anyway, we ordered some donuts and they weren't very fresh. They tasted... More

Every beach trip has to include donuts from Thomas Donut Shop! Every kind we have ever tried is delicious. We go early in the morning while they are fresh. During the summer, there is always a long line early in the morning, so I suggest you call in your order to avoid having to stand in the long line. Worth... More

Decided to try their ice cream store "sno balls" or snow cone. I bought a cherry sno ball for $3.75 . I don't know how you can ruin a cherry sno ball but it was the worst tasting sno ball that I ever had. It looked great in the cup, until I tasted it, had zero taste, actually it was... More

Heard this was the place to go for doughnuts. They were good, but not great. The ice cream was worth the trip more than the doughnuts. Always a line to order

When we finally found a parking place at Thomas Donut, we knew we must have gone to the right place!! It is known for its donuts but I got the bacon/swiss bagel and it was good. My daughter got biscuits and gravy and she said it was very tasty. We each had a pastry- I had the apple fritter and... More

These are a staple of any trip to Panama City for our family. We always think we're over buying, but end up with just enough. The cinnamon twists are always the first to go, but the key lime are the favorite splurge. We also eat lunch here when we visit, and love the burgers and fries. As well as the... More

My husband loves a good donut.... It doesn't have to be fancy; just so they are fresh! The first morning he went early, about 630 am, and there was a line already! A good sign! When he got back to our condo with our donuts, we couldn't wait to try them! We we not disappointed! They indeed were very fresh,... More
