Blue Mountain Creamery

Family-owned and operated in an iconic yellow cottage in Blue Mountain Beach, the Blue Mountain Beach Creamery is a must stop for doughnut lovers. Grab the shop’s fan-favorite Oreo doughnut and a milkshake, stroll over to the nearby public beach access for a 10/10 perfect day.

Donut Sea Dough Donuts – Santa Rosa Beach

Get to this donuttery early before these delicious treats, made with a 77-year-old recipe, sell out fast. Dough Sea Dough Donuts boasts the largest selection of doughnuts on 30A. You’ll find everything from the classic glazed and decadent Reese’s, to Key lime-filled.

Charlie’s Delights – Alys Beach

Disabled veteran-owned and operated, Charlie’s Donuts is an iconic South Walton institution. Charlie’s serves handmade 1920s-style doughnuts from his Insta-worthy converted Sunbeam bread truck every morning. Look for crowd favorites sour cream pound cake, lemon-filled, and blueberry donuts, all hand-rolled, dipped, filled and served fresh.

Donut Hole – Rosemary Beach

The eatery is known for scratch-made doughnuts, pastries and pies as well as a full menu of savory eats like omelets, pancakes and burgers. But doughnuts are what bring in the crowds, from traditional glazed or red velvet, to the chocolate peanut butter or Dutch crumb varieties.
