John’s Donuts Reviews

William Roestel

John Donut is the best! Anytime we want donuts we go to John’s. The apple fritters are the best ever, and I highly recommend the St. Louis (Boston) crème, chocolate filled, and glazed old fashioned. The rest are great too, but those are the favorites for our household. To avoid missing out on the high demand items go before 8am, as they open a 4am and close at 11am.

It has taken me forever to review this establishment. I have gone here for over 10 years and wanted to keep them my secret. It was really selfish of me.

These are the best donuts in St. Louis. The recipe has not changed since I found them. Always fresh, always delicious, always kind and caring employees. I recommend all of them! Of course I have my favorites but you cannot go wrong with anything you pick.

Super friendly, pleasant & prompt service. They had exactly what I needed to provide a delicious morning treat to my co-workers as a random act of kindness. Needless to say the donuts were devoured.

Packed in a cute box. Priced appropriately. Variety of options along with beverages to wash the sugar rush away.

Clean, COVID friendly. Masks required upon entry and worn by employees.

Ample parking in front.

I come back to my hometown of St. Louis all the way from Florida to get the best Apple Fritters in the world! They melt in your mouth! Also, I place special orders for 1-2 dozen of them and the staff always has them ready and are all so friendly and great at what they do! Please go visit John’s and pass the word!

Nice varieties of freshly made donuts Best to arrive early. I was 6th in line at 6 AM. I understand they sell out daily. Hidden gym on the south side of the city

Great donuts! The outside looks a bit shady but don’t let that scare you away from going inside! When you go up to order, you should be ready. One of the guys is likes to be efficient and if you fall behind he’ll get irritated. The glazed donuts last a week in the refrigerator. Their danishes last 5-7 days. Definitely drink some milk with the donuts, it will taste much better.

Brian Baker

Best donuts in St Louis, and honestly the best I’ve had in the United States. I rarely lavish praise, either.

The donuts here are light, chewy, and not too sweet. I have been coming here on late nights since 2010 and honestly they have only gotten better since.

Skip all the other donut shops and go to John’s.

This was my first experience with John’s Donuts. A coworker brought them in. As a donut lover, I was excited to try them. I have heard good things; but, sadly, as a Pharaoh’s Donuts lover, I never made moves.

For this first try, I picked the Glazed Jelly Donut and the Vanilla Iced Long John Donut. The Glazed Jelly Donut had good flavor with a GENEROUS amount of jelly. My only complaint is that the jelly was not uniformly distributed on the inside of the donut and was localized to one corner. Due to this excessive amount in one area, some was lost when I bit into it. Nevertheless, this was still a solid donut. The Vanilla Iced Long John Donut was better. It was very, and the icing was very flavorful and the perfect sweetness.

While Pharaoh’s Donuts is a better choice, I enjoyed my experience with John’s Donuts, and I look forward to trying their other product offerings.

Brad Beggs

Extensive selection of classic donuts in an old school setting. Love that they open at 4AM daily.

My daughter and I come here one Saturday a month. Their donuts are like no other and the ladies are super nice. John’s and Pharaoh’s are my two faves.
