Tasty-O Donuts has been a beloved fixture in downtown Vero Beach since 1972, delighting locals and visitors alike with their mouthwatering creations. Owned by John “Y” Heng, this iconic shop has been a hub of activity, churning out an impressive 300 dozen doughnuts from Monday through Thursday and a staggering 500 dozen from Friday through the weekend. However, recent events have catapulted Tasty-O Donuts into the spotlight even more. A viral post in a popular Facebook group sparked a community-wide outpouring of support for this cherished local gem, resulting in long lines and sold-out treats by 9:30 am. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, Tasty-O Donuts persevered, keeping their interior closed for safety reasons. However, responding to overwhelming customer demand, they have recently made the decision to reopen their dining room, allowing patrons to once again savor their delicious doughnuts, alongside freshly brewed coffee and breakfast sandwiches, in the cozy ambiance of the shop. Tasty-O Donuts continues to be a beacon of community spirit and culinary excellence in Vero Beach, where every visit is a delightful celebration of homemade goodness.
