Donut Hole is a Destin institution!
This place is PACKED any time there are tourists in town (basically half the year) and the line for donuts spills out the door.
Don’t be scared of the line. Most people just want to grab some donuts from the counter and be on their way. You can sit down and eat and enjoy a big, hearty breakfast, 24 hours a day.
I like to treat the kids to a Donut Hole breakfast before school on occasion, but if we’re not there by 7:30, we just might not get a seat.
Donut Hole is the closest thing Destin has to a truly classic diner and it doesn’t disappoint. Just good, honest, homestyle food that pleases the tiniest tots to the most particular snow birds.
The kids usually order a donut (they prefer plain glazed or chocolate, while I’d gladly splurge on a red velvet, key lime, or vanilla cream-filled angel). The donuts are huge and fluffy! And of course the donut holes are big kid-pleasers, also.
I always love to check out the specials board- heuvos rancheros is one of my favorites and, surprise, the portion is enormous.
The menu is overflowing with breakfast staples, as well as some local favorites, like the Diet Plate. Get a load of that description!
In addition to the baskets and baskets of fresh donuts, be sure to check out the cases of sticky buns, brownies, cakes, pies, breads, and more.
You’ve gotta visit Donut Hole at least once (though I’m sure you’d visit again and again)! The original location is right in the heart of Destin near the harbor. For those of you staying on 30A, there is also a South Walton location in Santa Rosa Beach.
