I absolutely love Doughnut Plant- I love the history, the wonderful service, the funky bathroom (at the Chelsea location), and of course, each and every doughnut is unique and wonderful. My husband and I stop in every time we're in the city, and I'm working on trying all the flavors- plenty more to go and having fun getting there!

There's many good reasons to fit the Doughnut Plant into your New York itinerary, and their carrot cake doughnut is certainly one of the best! This doughnut (complete with cream cheese filling) is essentially carrot cake itself, and is one of the top five doughnuts I've ever eaten. I also tried the fresh blueberry doughnut and the vanilla bean doughnut,... More

I am a fan of yeast doughnuts and Doughnut Plant has some great ones with innovative filling. Fun place to stop and pick up a treat. Loved the passion fruit filling.

I found this place on one of "those" shows that say you HAVE to go there. I think I went at a strange time, knowing that there may be a wait in line (and trying to avoid it), but lest one forget, you are in the city that never sleeps so chance of no line? ha ha ha....I did wait,... More

I tried their Pistachio Dough seed which was delicious & their Peanut Butter Banana one was alright. Nothing to get too hyped about.

I tried the Blackout, pistachio & my favorite of this threesome... pb&jam! Square doughnut filled with raspberry jam, nasty delish! Quite expensive but worth a try!

Ummm...I need to swear and say they are the best donuts ever. These are DA BOMB. Any sweet-tooth who doesn't make a beeline for this doughnut paradise needs their head read. Go OUT OF YOUR way to try as many as you can...and the coffee is GREAT as well. Winning on so many levels. I had the coconut cream one... More

One word AMAZING!!!!!! Simply the most yummiest doughnuts on the planet and worth a trip to New York just for these. There is every flavor you can think of and the chocolate milk is awesome!

As malasadas are endemic to Leonard's on Oahu The Doughnut Plant fries up cake and yeast doughnuts on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. A small nondescript storefront making people happy with their fried and creative confections. Best Matcha, Blackout and OMG wild blueberry.

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.
