Wonderful Doughnuts

Excellent quality ingredients. Delicious varied selections, tres leches, coffee cake, carrot cake and so many other choices. Very small and clean with limited seating. Very pleasant staff.

We ordered four doughnuts: Blackout, Chocolate Chip, Creme Brulee, and Peanut Butter Banana. All but the Blackout one were the most delicious doughnuts I've ever tasted. They had many interesting flavors. I would love to try them all. Another thing we liked is that they had cups and ice water available on the counter. The bad news is we spend... More

Great options for alternative doughnuts including peanut butter and jelly as well as a doughnut of the day. I prefer the classic plain icing doughnut which tastes very fresh and an excellent doughnut. The coffee here is nice and tasty too.

We accidentally found this place, and we accidentally ordered two of the strangest and most delicious doughnuts we've ever tasted. Even during this time where unique doughnuts are all the rage, these stand out more unique and more tasty than any others. You have to go there.

This is simply the best doughnut shop in NYC! If you love doughnuts take the time to try them out. There's just a couple of small tables to sit at if your lucky but I would gladly stand outside in the cold and eat these gourmet doughnuts with a cup of coffee. I love the different flavors! A must have... More

Donuts are fine - who doesn't like them? But doughnuts are a completely different thing. Never thought that I would become a doughnut junkie after just one visit to the Doughnut Plant. I was visiting NYC and of course had heard of the Doughnut Plant. Just happened to be passing by a store and stopped in late one evening. The... More

The best doughnuts I have ever had! I don't know how they do it, but these doughnuts are a wow and then some. Friendly service and there is a small area if you wish to eat your doughnuts before leaving the store.

Worth checking out, unique donuts. We had the specialty Crème brûlée doughnut. This doughnut is sweet and excellent with a coffee. Not a large area to hang out, parks around the corner to enjoy on benches and in the shade.

I tried the blueberry cake doughnut and thought it was a bit dry. I also had a bite of my boyfriend's tres leches cake doughnut, which was pretty good, but be prepared to overdose on sugar if you're not an American.

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.
