World’s Fair Donuts Reviews

Lord Rev. Shaun Boswell

Donut consistency was great not super airy and not super chewy. The taste was a bit different as they use an old style recipe. Nothing special about the icing. Over decent donut. Oh, they have a payphone…I mean you may not need it, but it’s one of the last surviving one in the city.

I pass by this shop everyday. Today I stopped because I heard they were very good donuts. I see from the reviews that its a new owner. I didn’t like it. The worker was very nice though.
She didn’t know what was in the case though. Asked worker what kind of fritter it was, she said raisin, it was blueberry when I took a bite. Also told me a pumpkin spice donut was a buttermilk old fashioned. The Pumpkin spice donut wasn’t cooked through and was doughy on the inside and the blueberry fritter not quite done either.

Donuts are good but won’t knock your socks off. $1.25 per donut, price matches the quality.

It’s so nice to have a donut shop walking distance in tower grove. Unfortunately, the quality is lacking in the 5+ times we’ve been since the new owners took over. Miss the old glazed donut as it was 100% the best I’d ever had. Also, would be nice if the new owners upgraded the coffee. Doesn’t need to be completely the same as before – if you’re donuts are just ok, at least offer better coffee!

World’s fair donut is a good old fashioned donut shop. It is run by a family and that just adds to the charm. The donuts were delicious, make sure you know your donuts because donuts aren’t labeled.
This is everything a donut shop should be and the passion and time show in the quality.

The parking is tight so if you come at a peak time be prepared.

Super nice, friendly guy, which is why I put 2 stars and not 1. My husband and son got the chocolate cream filled. I got the cream cheese topped. Mine was ok, though the filling was a little sharp tasting and different consistency. The others were just WRONG. The dough part was good, but there was something really off about the filling. They couldn’t eat it. I tasted it – and had to spit it out. Rancid? Maybe? We were worried about food poisoning (we were fine), it was that weird.

Delicious donuts with good service and great prices.

Worst donuts ever pretty sure I could of went to qt got fresher donuts. Such a sad thing to see the name I’m go to waste. I would take down the world fair sign such a misrepresentation of the brand. Strange donuts are very strange pretty sure these are two days old.

This place is the ideal definition of a mom-and-pop place. There is a unique touch to this gem tucked in a corner of a busy intersection: A mural of the previous owner has been completed. It is as though she is still “behind the counter,” overseeing the place she ran for 40 plus years. The history of this store was provided by an employee who was very enthusiastic about her job and remained friendly and smiled throughout the encounter. The donuts are both cake donuts and yeast donuts. There is a very large variety. Each donut seemed to melt with every bite. The apple critters are also very flavorful with the perfect flaky crust.

Mark Zeman

Long-time fixture in the neighborhood, World’s Fair offers good, traditional donuts at a terrific price. Quaint with a personal touch.
