Ensure you make the effort to visit this place for a cheeky doughnut! Incredibly indulgent, but well worth it and good coffee too. Highly recommended.

We had the following doughnuts: coconut cream, tres leches, and blackberry filled - loved them all- definitely eat it there or at least that day for the best experience.

I had a coffee cake donut which was too die for. My daughter loved hers too, a pumpkin spice donut. They have so many donuts to choose from and they all looked great.

Holy Crap these donuts are by far the best I've ever had. Mouthwatering, incredibly fun ambiance and location. Don't miss this place if you need a sweet treat.

The best mini donuts from the best donut maker! Light & fluffy yeast filled with a vanilla custard and torched on top to crispiness. I like this location too, the women are sweet and welcoming. On my visit I ordered 6 of these donuts and the woman individually wrappped each one so they didn't stick to the box or each... More

This is the best doughnut shop I have been to in New York. They have several great flavors and for many of them you can choose between cake style or yeast style. There is also good coffee to go along with the doughnuts and the staff is really friendly.

These donuts are so good that they are sold in several NYC markets as well. This is their first and primary location deep in the lower east side. It's small but very authentic. Love the raspberry donuts. Usually lines out the door on weekends. Try and go during the week. Well worth the wait.

These doughnuts are so good. Will change your idea of what a doughnut should taste like. Wish there was more room inside the shop. Tough to navigate the line and get out of the way when only mildly crowded. Peach doughnut was fantastic. Children split a vanilla, because they were full and the prices are pretty high.

I got the creme brulee doughseed and the tres leches cake doughnut, the creme brulee doughnut was just like creme brulee because it had a crispy sugar top. The tres leches cake doughnut was great as well, it had a custard-like filling even though the doughnut had a hole.
