Been coming here since 1982, won't stop coming. Beat donut shop in town. Cash only, good variety and the beat apple fritters.

This place is so wonderful. It's a little tricky to find if you're not familiar with the area, but it is worth the trip from no matter what part of the metro you're from. The chocolate twists are my favorite, but they truly have something for every donut lover.

The donuts here are outstanding. The best in Kansas City from my experience. They are always fresh. Beware that they sometimes run out of some of the more popular kinds (because they don't build up a big inventory that may sit there for hours), so get there early if you can. But all of the donuts we have tried there... More

The place used to be "the best" but our last two experiences have shown a lack of quality and caring. We have found the donuts are dryer, they gave up our favorite Carmel Long johns and they have not been friendly to day before orders. Special requests very early were not honored. Too bad for all!!

Go for the fritter, get there early! Owner makes a limited amount every day and the place is usually closed by 10am at the latest. Walking in it feels like the place hasn't changed in 50 years, which it probably has not. Someone is always behind the crescent shaped counter to help you. Grab a coffee with your doughnut and...

I've been going to John's Donuts since 1976 when my 4 month old daughter was making too much noise early Saturday mornings. I would put her in her car seat and simply get her out of the apartment. Most often than not we would end up at the nearby John's Space Age donut shop. We continued this routine until she... More

I love me a good donut and this is the spot!! It is an old fashioned donut space. It has a long l shaped counter with the swinging counter chairs ala the 1960's. The glazed are the stuff of legends. Simply delicious. I also had a coconut iced cake donut. It was an 8 out of 10. But the glazed... More

The best glazed donuts in Kansas City. Hands down. They have limited hours, but so worth it. Family owned, lovely people, and such good donuts!
