Included on Bon Appétit’s 2010 list of the top 10 best donut shops in the United States, The Donut Stop has been serving up glazed, cake, and custard-filled rounds since 1953. A large red stop sign urges passersby to pop in at the white, standalone shop for a raspberry jelly donut, maple-iced long john, or a cinnamon glob, a massive ball of cinnamon-swirled dough dipped in glaze. For birthdays, The Donut Stop offers cake-sized donuts that can reflect your actual age or the age when you discovered that Santa Claus only eats oatmeal raisin cookies.

Comprised of a cavalry of other martial-arts experts, the Ohana team also specializes in other unique martial-arts forms including san shou kickboxing, Bruce Lee jeet kune do, and kajukenbo—a Hawaiian style that combines karate, judo, jujitsu, kenpo, and kung fu. Fifth-degree black belt Jim Greenwood also specializes in kyusho jitsu, which uses acupressure points on the body as a form of self-defense.

The Fountain On Locust has earned accolades such as St. Louis Magazine's award for Best Restaurant On a Budget in 2012 and an honorable mention as one of Sauce Magazine's favorite restaurants to impress out-of-towners. Described as "luscious" by Sauce Magazine reviewers, the café's ice-cream creations skew toward adults. They may be topped with hand-crafted sauces or blended into champagne floats and eclectic ice-cream martinis. On the menu, these sweets converge with a panoply of vintage cocktails and playful café dishes that include hot roast-beef melts and a turkey BLT "so good you might cry."

The retro cuisine meshes perfectly with the vintage-inspired decor, highlighted by walls of hand-painted midnight-blue murals. Black and white tile floors spread out from a wooden bar lit with art deco-style hanging lamps, much like the kind F. Scott Fitzgerald described in his unpublished novella about Gatsby's electrician. And yet the restaurant's eclectic design isn't limited to the dining space—The Fountain won Cintas' America's Best Restroom Award in 2010.
