We have been going to the Donut Palace for 15 years! We refer to it as "The Donut Shop" because there is no other!!! Personal favorite is the old fashioned cinnamon but they are all terrific. Put it on your list for the best donuts in STL!

The old fashion donuts are tremendous. The apple fritter are huge and delicious. The caramel cake are also winners. I always get a large coffee too.

Unless you live in Tower Grove or south city, Donut Palace is by far the best option for donuts in the region. The team is tremendous and helpful. The options are wide. The specialty options are beloved by the kiddos (an Oreo-encrusted donut is our favorite). It's busy in the morning but they are efficient and worth the wait.

If you're going for TASTE, not gimmick, these are the BEST donuts in St. Louis. My favorite are the icing stuffed, but the apple fritters are amazing, too. So many varieties. Raised and cake varieties. I've never tried one I didn't like. They're not open all day so be sure to check the hours before you go.

I have been a patron of Donut Palace for many years for the high-quality, non-greasy, wide variety of donuts they serve. Whether you want a simple glazed or cake donut, or something with sprinkles, filling, caramel, or icing, you'll find it here. The staff handles customers' needs efficiently, and all donuts are packaged to maintain the integrity and quality of... More

When I moved out to Ballwin everyone told me about this great donunt place to try called the donut palace. I visited and the guy whom I presumed was the owner was watching Fox News and ranting and raving and cursing about politics and how the Republican Party is great blah blah. I thought this was a bit bizarre, but... More
