We live close by so we frequent the Donut Hole for take out...I always get the same thing ... the chicken tenders...yum! Cooked perfectly and plenty of them with honey mustard...doesn't get any better than that! Also, we fancy their Peanut Butter doughnuts...perfect for peanut butter lovers, which we are! Their plate size pancakes are delicious...can't go wrong at The... More

One of the more phenomenal bakery restaurants in the Florida Panhandle, the Donut Hole has the best baked goods, breakfasts, and lunches around. The corned beef hash is the best I have ever experienced. The service is pleasant, professional, and welcoming. The lines out the door during season are a testimony to the quality and quantity of food being served.

Service was haphazard, the food was uninspiring, and it's reputation is overrated. My chicken salad (salad) was a mayo mess with barely passable lettuce. Hubby had cheese grits, eggs and toast. The toast was cold with no butter on it, near it or even offered. Grits were an overcooked clump of goo. I ordered a large chocolate chip cookie which... More

We don't usually eat at the Donut Hole as we don't think the food or service is very good at any of the 3 in the area. We do pick up muffins and desserts occasionally. If you like thick, doughy donuts you'll like these.

There is usually a big wait in the mornings during the season here. I'm a local so I just wait and go when it's winter time. But the food here is very very yummy. Don't miss this stop.

We visit the Santa Rosa area several times a year and always stop for donuts here. The red velvet donuts are our favorites. We get there early and beat the crowds. If you are in the area, it's worth stopping for!

Three of us stopped for a late dinner. Great variety of food to choose from. Breakfast served all day. Had a bacon and cheese omlette with cinnamon fried apples and a biscuit. 3/4 lb hamburger and fries. Lettuce salad with grilled chicken, shredded cheese, tomatoes, onion, ( I'm forgetting something) and homemade ranch dressing. They have decaf tea.

Great little Americana restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Plenty of parking. About 5 minutes from our stay at Miramar and about 10 minutes east of Destin lodging. Across from a Walmart and kind of by itself on main drive. Excellent service and products . Wife even had to buy their t shirt. Will return at least once per visit. Kind... More

The donuts and coffee are great, no doubt about that. However, I'll not return here for a cooked breakfast. 'Soft Scrambled' eggs mean eggs that are thoroughly scrambled, then cooked until they're still soft and a bit runny. It does not mean eggs that are half stirred and then cooked hard, with burned bits of something from the griddle embedded... More

Great selection of fresh quality ingredients. We tried three times to get here and went somewhere else. Finally got in and it was really worth it! Located right at the end of 30-A where it joins the main road. Beautiful building inside and out. We loved everything. Biscuits and gravy (wow!) omelets,crispy hash browns, bacon. Everything perfectly cooked. Great, friendly... More
