Bill's Donut Shop

Centerville, Ohio

Thanks to a kind fella from the Obama campaign, we experienced the goodness that is Bill's Donut Shop — a Dayton institution of caloric delight.

This place is the real deal. Family owned and operated since 1960. Open 24 hours a day. A counter you can belly up to. Fifty cent refills of coffee (if you have your own Bills mug). Closed between Christmas and New Years. Simple rules too: a handwritten sign says No Loitering.

Talking politics goes good with coffee, but man was it hard to make a decision about which donut to pick.
