Destin Bakeries with the Best Artisanal Donuts

An undoubtedly delicious treat, donuts likely date back to indigenous people long before America. The modern donut gained popularity when Dutch settlers brought over their version to what is now New York. Whether you're craving a classic glazed treat or something more unique, our apartments in Destin are minutes from bakeries with the best artisanal donuts.

Donut Hole Bakery Cafe

Topping the list of popular breakfast spots is a local favorite, Donut Hole. You will find the buzz and reviews on social media. Once you stop in, you'll see why. Donut Hole offers out-of-this-world donuts that you'll have to fight to want to share. Try the Boston cream or devil's food cake. The shop is always busy, but the friendly staff will tend to you promptly. 

You can also sit down to enjoy a meal before you take some donuts home. Donut Hole serves scrumptious breakfast all day.

Destination Little Donuts

Another good choice is Destination Little Donuts. Their claim to fame is a small size, packing in the yum. You won't mind the size because that means you can try more flavors. They are made to order in front of you, so they are always fresh. Not only that, but you can choose from menu items or come up with your own toppings. There are also gluten-free options available.

Stop by or order online for easy pickup.

Parlor Doughnuts

Located just a jump away in Miramar Beach, you’ll find Parlor Doughnuts. These are the donuts that make up a whole meal. There are so many mouth-watering flavors and options that it's hard to pick just one. Customers love the selection of flaky yet fluffy delights. Try the Maple Bacon or Dreamcicle flavors.

While you're figuring out which donuts you want, you can grab a milkshake or coffee. Go for the Mayan Mocha or Coconut Cream Doughboy (milkshake). You can also snag breakfast or a donut for your pup. They also offer keto and gluten-free selections, so everyone can have a taste.
