Everybody loves a good doughnut, right?

Travel site/mag Fodor's has scoured the land for a feature titled "America's 20 best Dessert Spots," and the Reading Terminal Market mainstay Beiler's is on the list.

"The stand features a variety of handcrafted Amish desserts, including sticky buns, apple fritters, and authentic shoofly pie," reads the blurb. "Guests will enjoy the bakery’s homemade doughnuts - popular flavors include chocolate chocolate chip and harvest apple."

Owner Alvin Beiler sure seemed pleased with what he called the stand's first national honor in its 27 years. "We did get a Best of Philly in 2010 for our whoopie pie," he said. Earlier this year, Beiler renovated one of his stands, in the market's northwest corner, to emphasize the doughnuts.
