Olympic Doughnuts

One of the first things to welcome you as you arrive at Footscray station is Olympic Doughnuts. It’s the spray-painted metal box just to the left as you exit, that could have arrived here direct from 1989. The man inside is impaling golfball-sized doughnuts onto the nose of a ceramic dolphin that pumps hot jam into each one. The doughnuts, perfectly crispy on the outside and pillow-soft on the inside, are  famous Melbourne-wide. And for 80 cents a pop, this humble old-school doughnut isn’t a bad introduction to Footscray.
