Making Fresh Donuts for Nearly 50 Years – Old Town Donuts
FLORISSANT, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) — Fall is in full swing in the St. Louis area. Baseball season is over. The leaves are turning. The smell of pumpkin spice is in the air! And nowhere is that more true than at Old Town Donuts! Both the original Florissant shop (508 South New Florissant Rd.) and the Cottleville store (3941 Mid Rivers Mall Dr.) are serving up a seasonal favorite: pumpkin spice cake donuts. And their regular customers will tell you, no matter when you go to Old Town, the donuts are always fresh.
Old Town Donuts has been a fixture in Old Town Florissant since it was founded in 1968. After nearly 50 years, this family business is still going strong. That let them open a second shop in 2014, in Cottleville. Despite competition from national chains, they’re still the number one donut shop in Florissant. In fact, the shop is frequently listed among top tens around St. Louis.
In September 2016, theCultureTrip.com listed Old Town Donuts as one of the top ten restaurants in Florissant. That’s the same month they made the STLResaurant.News list of Top 10 Bakeries in St. Louis. (They were number two!) That list was based on reviews of 63 bakeries and pastry shops around the metro area. In 116 reviews, Old Town Donuts had a 5 Star rating.
A look at the way they make their donuts, and it’s not hard to see why. Their donuts are all made by hand. At the original Florissant location, they’re making donuts 24-hours a day, seven days a week, so the donuts are always fresh. All of the fillings, toppings and flavorings are made right there in the shop too. With adventurous combinations, like caramel-bacon long johns, and tried-and-true favorites, like hand rolled cinnamon rolls or gigantic apple fritters, they’ve got a fresh choice for everyone, even your dog! That’s right. Bring your four-legged friend up to the shop, and they’ll give it a free donut hole!
The Cottleville shop is open daily from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Florissant shop is open 24-hours a day, and they’re making fresh donuts right this minute. Both shops offer quantity discounts for churches, schools, offices, etc. Besides donuts, they also make muffins, cookies, pastries and bagels.
