I had a shrimp po-boy and a sno-ball, but we are a family of 6 and everyone loved their food! This place has to be the best value in PCB, and is a must visit for us each time we are here!

This was our 2nd trip to David's in 2 years. This is a cute and clean beignet/cafe right on US 98 in Panama City Beach. Their great staff are very courteous and helpful. The beignets (sno-balls) are Terrific, as are their Muffulettas. Will have to...try other menu items in future due to their delicious beignets and muffulettas. Is evident that a loyal local customer base frequents David's. We Highly Recommend and will be back to try more every time we are in the area. Congratulations to the staff at David's! And Thank You.More

Excellent choice for lunch. Everything was good. Jambalaya, meatballs, beignets and the roast beef sub. Now the snowball ... Dreamsicle is in order.

Closed on Mondays right now, we visited on Tuesday. Red Beans & Rice day! It’s very hearty, meaty and tasty. We also shared the 5” Muffuletta which was even BETTER than I remembered from last year. The olive salad was particularly poppin’ and yummy…and the...bread is LEGIT. The beignets aren’t as light & fluffy as in New Orleans, but they are hot & fresh & you’re at the beach! David’s Sno-Balls is still a PCB fav for us for NOLA food. Parking is good right in front, but it’s hard to find so look for the Parkway Storage sign.More

Had read reviews and travel to PCB on business a lot. Love etouffee. So I was hopeful. Stood in line for 15 minutes as a server made a snowball. Only then did someone else come to help. After all that, they only serve etouffee on...certain days. And not on Saturday.. or at least when I was there.. So let the buyer beware.More

This was my favorite place to eat on our visit to Panama City Beach. Excellent coffee, beignets, and roast beef po’ boy sandwich. Lots of snow cone flavors too. All the staff was friendly and you could tell they had a lot of regular customers....There were tables inside and picnic tables outside. We will definitely come back next time we are in the area.More

My wife and I split shrimp and beef Po Boys. Both were excellent! Grabbed a side of fried pickles and they were delicious as well. Great food at a great price!

What a neat experience it was to have authentic and delicious New Orleans fare in Panama City. On our drive down for a soccer tournament we looked for somewhere to eat on TripAdvisor. My husband is from south Louisiana so we were excited to see...if this place met the standards we’re used to. It was wonderful. The roast beef poboys taste just like mawmaws! The beignets are just like the Cafe Du Monde! The coffee is a delicious New Orleans blend…oh, and the fried pickles have just enough kick the kids quickly ate them up. Well be back tomorrow to get our Sno-Balls!More
