Worth every bite!

In NYC for a family vacation and had to stop here - it did not disappoint! We tried the blueberry, lavender, peanut butter & strawberry, peanut butter & banana, and creme brulee. All were amazing.

i don't usually eat donuts but saw this place on TV and decided to visit. I had the peanut butter and Jam donut and it was incredibly good! My partner had a Carrot Cake donut that was equally as good. I'm getting hungry now just thinking about it! Another place to make sure you get to in NYC http://doughnutplant.com/

Holy hotdogs! Doughnut Plant is literally a place of pilgrimage for me. I especially recommend the baked doughnuts, namely green tea and oatmeal. Pop these tantalizing, egg-free beauties into your mouth hole NOW!

This doughnut store is highly rated on Trip Advisor so we headed along. It has a quirky colourful little seating area (check out the seats) and a range of doughnuts. We found the peanut butter and jelly one far too sweet and the PB was weird with doughnut. The tres leches was little and we really enjoyed it. One doughnut... More

Okay, so I saw this place on Food Network....one of the chefs said their doughnuts were the best thing they had ever eaten, so naturally, it was on my list of spots to hit when we were in NY. It took FOREVER to find it.....such a tiny shop, but so happy we didn't give up looking! The PB & J... More

Every now and then I treat myself to dessert, but usually in a restaurant type environment. Donuts were never one of my venues. But....on a recent visit to the East village I discovered this place and sampled the blackout donut and the tres leche one. Words cannot express the euphoria my taste buds experienced! I am only glad that I... More

Are they crazy? Seriously, it was a good donut, but I've gotten better at Dunkin Donuts and the only difference was that for that much money, you can get 6 donuts. But, we were there and figured we had to try it. Not again. :O(

Delicious unique flavors that will put you into a sugar coma, in a good way. My favorite is the Coconut Cream Doughnut.

The doughnuts were very good, but perhaps I was expecting earth shattering from the way my friends talked it up. The doughnuts seemed overly sweet across the board. Perhaps that's just a personal preference, though. The staff was nice, even though they were having computer troubles and were only accepting cash. Nice stop for the morning, but probably wouldn't make... More

People definitely come here for the different flavors. We got the chocolate chip cake doughnut, the tres leches, the Brooklyn black out and the coconut cream square. The best two were the blackout and the tres leches. The other two were pretty mediocre and the coconut cream was too sweet. I think they'd taste better piping hot (we came after... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
