Best Doughnuts 

O'Fashion Donuts

A year or two ago, someone decided it was OK to cut a doughnut in half, stuff it with a hamburger and cover it in pimento cheese. Gross. Take the antithesis of that, house it in a white brick shack the size of a walk-in closet and you have O'Fashion Donuts. This unassuming spot just off the Hill is the embodiment of St. Louis' classic doughnut dives. The counter is usually manned by a woman who looks like she's been there since 1953; she'll serve you hot-plate coffee in a Styrofoam cup and furrow her brow if you take too long with your order. Not that there's much confusion over what to get. The offerings are few — classic glazed, chocolate and vanilla long johns, and cinnamon and sugar, though the real showstopper is the buttermilk cake doughnut. This pudgy, deep-fried pillow of dough coated with a sugary glaze makes you wonder why anyone attempts improving on simple perfection. 5120 Southwest Avenue, St. Louis, 63110. 314-772-0398,
