Riverfront Times' Description
In what year did St. Louis host the World's Fair? Hint: World's Fair Donuts is located at 1904 South Vandeventer Avenue. Tucked away at the intersection of Shaw Avenue just off Interstate 44, World's Fair Donuts has been selling their sweet, doughy treats for more than thirty years. World's Fair offers traditional glazed and powdered choices, as well as some iced long johns. Of course, early morning risers can't go wrong with a signature crumbly, glazed buttermilk cake donut. For the health conscious, there's a blueberry chip cake donut, fruit-filled Danish rolls, or even an apple fritter, because hey, fruit's healthy, right? If so, then their fruit pies, reminiscent of those waxed-paper wrapped Hostess numbers, just might take the cake. Come prepared, World's Fair only accepts cash or check, and it would be downright dismal to leave the Fair without a tasty souvenir.
Tips from foursquare
I've eaten doughnuts from all over the country, and these are also some of those doughnuts.
Remember they only accept cash money. No cards.
Two doughnuts & a coffee for $2.08, huh? Just be warned - cash only. That cash register is probably older than the building.
Great donuts! Must go before noon. Donut selection VERY limited later in the day, if anything at all!
Go for the blueberry donuts. They're a favorite of Greyhounds.
