  • The Donut Stop has 103 types of donuts on offer.

Forget those new-fashioned donuts, those gloriously creative concoctions you can now find in Clayton or Maplewood or a half-dozen shops around the greater St. Louis area.

For its pick for the best donut in Missouri, Thrillist went decidedly old-school, choosing The Donut Stop (1101 Lemay Ferry Road; 314-631-3333) as No. 1.
As the website reported,

Offering a a dozen donut flavors is fine, but 103 — the amount you'll find on this landmark menu — is incomparable.

When we held a contest a few years back to find the city's most underrated donut, The Donut Stop finished fourth, scoring 22 percent of the vote. So let this be a reminder if you failed to follow up after reading that one: The Donut Stop has it going on — and it's high time you made a trip out to South County to see for yourself.
