Very disappointed to find the Donkey Diner closed. They had great pizza when we stopped in last year.

Past history has shown that this Coral Bay icon has transcended recurring transfers in ownership, with sustained, and sometimes heightened, success. I've...More

Donkey Diner is an 'eclectic' restaurant situated in Coral Bay...sometimes mellow, sometimes zany, but always outrageously fun! We specialize in breakfast, pizza & Kickass Bloody Marys!We are located on Route 10 across from the Guy Benjamin Elementary school. There's plenty of parking but we're also easily accessible from the dinghy dock or VITRAN bus. We are open daily from 7am to 8pm. Cash or traveler's checks only please.
