It’s not a gallery and they don’t sell donuts. It’s a narrow breakfast and lunch spot with low vinyl stools that overlook a griddle—and it’s also been a Key Biscayne institution since 1972. The walls are covered in photos of Key locals, and the counter’s footrest has indented footprints from regulars. Service is fast and friendly, the pancakes are fluffy, and the coffee is strong. But you can’t go to the Donut Gallery without ordering the Ted’s special. It’s an open-faced sandwich with ham, bacon, tomato slices, American cheese, and two fried eggs that run like a new computer—all on an English muffin. It’s a fork-and-knife situation that can also be served on French toast. Thankfully, after all these years, not much has changed at the Donut Gallery. Let’s keep it that way.
