“Delicious Donuts at Old-fashioned Prices”
Review of World Fair Donut

World Fair Donut
Ranked #6 of 60 Bakeries in Saint Louis
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We decided to run into World Fair Donuts after seeing them on our way to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. What we discovered on a whim certainly did not disappoint! The donuts were fresh and delicious and the decor and prices were from a different era! Each donut was only 61¢ each and the antique sign with the menu looked like it hadn't been updated since the 1970s. Definitely with a visit!

This truly is a mom and pop joint. The blueberry donut was our favorite and I don’t even like blueberries!

We love our donuts, and this is the most unpretentious shop you will ever visit. The workers are stooped over from years of maiking donuts. Some appear to have been here since the words fair. They are amazing and so fun to speak with. The have one goal, get you the best donut and quickly... well pretty quick considering the many customers. While waiting for your favorite red velvet cake donut or your glazed bars make sure you take note of just how careful they are attending to the donut making. It is an open area that allows full observation of how they do their magic. OK OK just go. You will love this place.

What a great little place. They have the best tasting donuts. The caramel long johns are great but I love the yeast glazed.
These donuts are so inexpensive.....a dozen of anything at $8.....did they add wrong? The owners are there making them every time we stop in.

Apple fritters, fried pies, cake donuts, cream horns.....need I say more? ❤️❤️❤️

Having lived in St. Louis a little over a year, my boyfriend and I have made it our thing to try new donut shops on Saturday mornings. After trying about 6-7 different places around town, we found ourselves wondering why we weren’t just coming back to World’s Fair - they’re the best donuts and you seriously can’t beat the cost if you tried!

The couple that runs the shop is so hard working and adorable too that you can’t help but want to support their shop.

Would definitely recommend!
