Stopped here to try their donuts along with an iced Americano. Sampled several in our group of four, but my favorite was the pineapple rosemary and the fresh peach. Fun way to start our day on the lower East side and Greenwich Village.

We went here because there is a new Doughnut plant opening in Brooklyn and we wanted to get an advance taste of the famous donuts. And they don't disappoint. When we were there it was mostly tourists on line, so I guess the word is out. But definitely worth a trip to satisfy a sweet tooth in a very unique... More

This is a must do if you are in NYC. Located in an unassuming small space. When we first walked in the selection was too overwhelming to take in so we just ordered a dozen in an assortment so that we could try a variety. Honestly, they are almost too beautiful to eat! Everyone that we tried was so unique... More

Anytime I'm near 23rd St, I mean even if I'm at 90th, I make my way over to this Donut Temple. The Yeast or Cake, Cake or Yeast that's what I'm thinking as I wait on line...I do both and I recommend so do you. My fav is Peanut Butter and Blackberry (today), tomorrow it will probably be the last... More

I had heard about Doughnut Plant for quite a while but never gotten a chance to visit until we took a food walking tour of the Lower East Side. Very good doughnuts (both yeast and cake) and coffee with nice little tables and free wifi. Iced tea was meh but as a tea person I know that is pretty typical... More

Our hotel is at Best Western Hanbee hotel at the border of Little Italy and chinatown. Good location! Walking distance to a lot of eateries, including Doughnut plant. It is a good 1km or so roundtrip stroll from our hotel. To the right of our hotel. We went there for breakfast. It is a small place but churns out freshly... More

OK, this is one of the more interesting donut joints Ive been to. Lots of daily flavors, with heavenly aromas, and a little pricey at $3.00 each. Dont worry about calories and carbs if you want a fantastic donut. We ordered coconut lime, blueberry, cinnamon sugar and creme brulee. They are huge, tasty, absolutely fresh and worth it. Went back... More

Our family of six decided to have doughnuts for breakfast at the Chelsea location. We were so happy that we did. The doughnuts were wonderful. The raised doughnuts are large and they also have small ones called seeds. We prefer the raised over the baked ones. The favorites were peanut butter and jelly and fresh blueberry, although the vanilla bean... More

These are honestly the best doughnuts I have ever had. If you come to New York and skip this place, you're missing out. We went every morning we were there, for better or for worse, and just about every doughnut we tried was unbelievably tasty. My personal favorite was the banana-filled peanut butter doughnut, while the wife was partial to... More
