  • Doughnuts from the Donut House, now closed

The Donut House (8500 Morgan Ford Road, south St. Louis County; 314-638-5828) has closed. The exact date of the closure is unclear. A "For Lease" sign is up in the windows, and the phone number has been disconnected.

Riverfront Times named the 24-hour Donut House the home of its "Best Doughnuts" in 2010.

The only thing better than comfort food is 24-hour comfort food. Yes, Donut House never closes, but what's more notable than simply its range of hours is its consistency in offering a huge selection of deep-fried confections whose quality never disappoints -- no matter what the hour. Whether they're Sunday Morning Church Doughnuts, After-Dinner Dessert Doughnuts or 3 a.m. Stumbling Home Drunk Doughnuts, they will be memorably fresh, tasty and served in a manner and atmosphere reminiscent of a 1950s diner. No apple fritter can compete with Donut House's, and the toasted-coconut cake doughnuts are beyond compare. Furthermore, the House appreciates its customers: The folks there have been known to sneak an extra doughnut or two into your bag with a wink and a smile.
