They are the best donuts. they are so fresh and there is such a variety. I love the decor, it brings me right back to my childhood, music and all. The apple fritters are one of my favorites. We love it. If dunkin donuts ever comes to ellisville, watch out you have met your match for sure.

The Donut Palace has the BEST donuts ever. They offer a large variety of tasty treats. We have them every month at our Newborns In Need meeting and all of our volunteers look forward to them each and every month. The east coast’s loss is Ellisville’s win. The palace offers a family friendly atmosphere to all that enter. Thank you Frank and Ann Mahler and Kelly and Chris doing what you do for over 15 years.

Love the Palace's doughnuts, especially the custard-filled ones.
