In my opinion, the two best doughnut shops in town are Stan the Donut Man on Wilmington Pike and Bill's in Centerville but when I was growing up in Belmont, Charlie's Donuts on Smithville was the best.

I'm going to stretch the topic slightly from donut shops to include bakeries as that's where we got our donuts.
On Gettysburg Avenue there was The Cake Box and sometimes, on Saturday morning, my Mom would send us to get our breakfast. I don't know if they were the best in comparison to other places but they were the best we ever had and they disappeared quickly.

Jim's Donuts in Vandalia! The best I've ever tasted and on par with Bills in Centerville. Been going to Jim's since the 70's and they're still going strong. Under new management, but you'd never know. Great stuff. Sure miss Linda the waitress though...

I’m amazed no one ever mentions Jung’s Donuts. Don’t any of you Belmont old-timers remember Jung’s?…….LOL

For a very short period of time Jung's had a location in Centerville about where Panera Bread is now. Eventually this location became Bill's Donuts and then Bill's later moved to their current location. Great location, too. You can hang out at Bill's for breakfast and then move across the street to Esther Price for lunch! After that walk next door to Marion's for dinner. Dayton icons gathered in one location!

Jungs also had a donut shop on Dorothy lane in same building that the Chinese carry out still is. JJMaine only place I can remember there is Fairmont bakery which definitely had the best donuts and bread going. It was there for many years and mom would send us kids up to get a warm loaf of buttercrust for dinner. Prior to that there was a small place called The Donut Hut that sat on Far Hills and had a walk up window in the area of a used car lot.This was before the small plaza was built that contained Fairmont bakery Allens drugs and small Franks poultery store were built. All gone now but the place that went in where Franks poultery was has been a dry cleaner for years.

Back around 1969, there was a Donut shop just north of Dorothy Ln on South Dixie a little past where the Golden Nugget Pancake House is. I can't remember the name but their Donuts were really good. I was working at Cantrell & Guy just down the street on Kettering Blvd, and about twice a week I would make a Donut run for the Salesmen and Mechanics. Even today, I can't help but think of this Donut shop whenever I buy donuts. I believe that BUDCO was located next door.

Mpup do remember the donut shop you speak of but passed it many times over the years. Never did go inside and don't think its been gone all that long.Several businesses closed down due to illness and this may be one of the casualties.

I sincerely miss Jolly Pirate Donuts at the corner of 202 and Needmore. Their long johns were excellent. Sadly, it's a boring Subway, but at least they didn't tear the building down.

The iced cake donuts at Moler's Dairy were some of the best. Not much variety there, but if iced cake donuts are your cup of tea, then Moler's wouldn't disappoint.
