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.

Absolute institution. I grew up in the 80's and my mum would take me to Footscray to shop at the markets. No visit was ever complete without stopping here before we got on the train back home, rain hail or shine. Glad it's still going strong.
