Amidst the high-end boutiques and upscale restaurants of Chestnut Street, one old-school spot has managed to stay afloat: All Star Donuts, which had been serving up classic old-fashioneds, apple fritters, and donut holes since 1986. But as of this week, All-Star will no longer shine. As Inside Scoop reports, the 24-hour spot, long a favorite for everyone from elderly neighbors to hangover helpers, has lost its lease after the landlord raised the rent. They're on the hunt for a new space, but have no leads as of yet;
their space hasn't yet been taken by a new business.
Update, 10:30 am: A lease has been signed for a new business to move into the space, but the landlord isn't saying who.
Here are some social media tributes to the beloved shop:
