Obsessed. I just moved away from St. Louis, and I am SO sad that I couldn't take this little mom and pop shop with me. The buttermilk cake donut is to die for. It is hands down the best buttermilk donut that you will ever taste. Usually, these donuts are dry and lack flavor, but the ones here have a magical ability to retain sweetness and moisture. If you haven't been here and you live in St. Louis, you ABSOLUTELY have to go. Make sure that you go in the mornings, because they run out of donuts quickly. It is also cash only, so make sure that you bring some dolla dolla bills. :)

Amazing doughnuts, nice old lady behind the counter at a hole in the wall shack, but the place is clean and the pastries amazing! These doughnuts are worth blowing your diet for.

Try coconut pie. It's something different. Worth it.

We really wanted donuts on our recent trip to St. Louis, and a google search for "best donuts in St. Louis" led us to World's Fair. Alton Brown said they were the best around, and who am I to argue with Alton Brown?? We could not believe the prices (just under $7 for a full mixed dozen). We tried frosted long johns, basic glazed, and frosted cake donuts, but the best by far were the buttermilk cake. Depending on where you're from, you might know them as sour cream donuts. They're very similar. They were the best I've ever had, anywhere. And I really, really love donuts! The shop itself is small, the staff was friendly, and the location is really nice (near the botanical garden in a cute little neighborhood with fun local shops nearby). The place was not over-crowded, but there was a steady stream of customers the entire time we were there. One customer would leave, and someone new would immediately walk in the door. They seemed to have a loyal customer base, b/c you could tell some of them were regulars that the owner recognized. Please stop in and give them your business, and for heaven's sake, do yourself a favor and try those buttermilk cake donuts. The other stuff was fine, but those were the star. Editing to add that it is cash only, so be prepared!!

Fresh & flavorful donuts incredibly inexpensive. We always enjoy watching the owners-an older lady who waits on customers while her husband is rolling donuts on the table behind her. Excellent variety as well. Whenever we visit Botanical Gardens or the Hill this is a must stop!
