There are so many great restaurants in Destin!

It can be tough to decide which ones to pick and which ones to pass on when you only have so many days to see all the Emerald Coast has to offer.

Starting with the most important meal of the day… breakfast… the caring, on site staff at the Palms of Destin have taken the time to consult each other to come to a consensus on which eatery is a ‘must’ to start your day(and trip)when visiting our piece of paradise.

We overwhelmingly determined that a trip to the Luckiest Fishing Village on Earth wouldn’t be complete without stopping into the little, unassuming seaside eatery, the Donut Hole, for a good southern meal to fuel all your day’s exciting adventures on the Gulf of Mexico.

Located along Emerald Coast Parkway in Destin, Florida just moments from the Palms, this famous eatery is a favorite of locals and visitors alike with pictures of some of the more eel known guests adorning the walls. Reasonably priced and directly across from the sparkling waters of the Gulf, the Donut Hole is French Riviera cuisine fused with fresh Florida ingredients in a charming, diner like atmosphere.

An original Destin landmark, the Donut Hole is perfect for breakfast or lunch anytime of the day, and besides house made donuts of over 20 varieties, they are also known for their Eggs Benedict with homemade hollandaise and farm fresh eggs, and for their out-of-this-world Cheese Blintzes with fresh creamed cheese and juicy, in season fruits.

For lunch, try their amazing French Dip or Reuben sandwiches, piled high with cuts of savory meats and cheeses on freshly made bread. If you haven’t noticed the pattern yet, it’s that everything served at the Donut Hole is made right on the premises or sourced from local vendors.

Once you’re stuffed on fresh strawberries, pastries and mimosas, you can make your way back to your suites at the Palms of Destin to let your food settle and make your plans for the day from all the countless, nearby activities like kayaking around Henderson State Park, directly across from the resort.

Our just put your feet up in style and unwind in your comfortable lodgings.

Also awaiting our guests leisure are our lighted tennis/basketball courts and state of the art fitness center, where you can work up an appetite for our unbelievable gourmet creations at The Brick and Spoon, one of our favorite places for lunch or supper also!,conveniently located within the resort.
