Hands down the best donut around. Creative collection with tons of possibilities. Highly recommend the carrot cake donut!

My sons and friend were intent on finding NYC's best doughnuts and we weren't disappointed here. There was so much to choose from, in so many different flavours and varieties, and they were all so good, we all chose one more to take away for breakfast the next day. The one downer is that the place is just too small,... More

The coconut square donuts have rich coconut cream inside, it's dense and rich almost like a paste, like nothing I have tasted before. Covered with coconut flakes this thing is a singular and focused thing of beauty.

Had a peanut butter banana cream square donut there, probably worth 700 calories, delicious and killer! Unfortunately the cream in the donuts to go did not survive a metro trip home. An hour after buying them the crème brûlée was sour! Better eat them fresh while walking.

Great selection of donuts, in cake, yeast and filled versions. Very popular with locals and tourists like me. We had a couple of donuts for breakfast each and all were great. The best donuts I have ever had. There are a few tables inside and a couple of benches outside but in busy times may struggle to get a seat.... More

I had never been there before. Went with a friend. We could find no parking anywhere in blocks so he stayed in the car in a no parking zone when I went in to get some. So many delicious choices. I ended up buying about a dozen and two coffees and had a $50+ bill. Sticker shock for sure. They... More

When we first entered the shop, we already knew the doughnuts were going to be good. There was a rather long line and pillow doughnuts adorned the walls. For 5 people my family got six doughnuts which added up to 20$. Although this sounds pricy the doughnuts' taste makes up for this. There were so many options to choose from!... More

We popped in having just eaten at Spitzer's corner. For a nice end to the meal, I had the creme brulé and my partner had the vanilla bean. Considering the reviews to be honest it was a bit of a let down. They weren't bad doughnuts in the least but "The Best Doughnuts" I have to say I have had... More
