Do yourself a favor and try it!

This place has some of the best donuts around. I'm not a huge donut eater but the pb&j one was outstanding. Everything we had was delicious. Always get and eat them fresh or they lose a little something, as with any donut.

Based on the reviews I expected more. They have a very wide variety of doughnuts and they do taste good (but not special) however I wouldn't pay 3.75$ for a single doughnut again, simple as that. If they decide to halve the prices I'll come back :)

Very nice donuts, but the real draw here is all the very unusual and creative flavours that they have. Worth stopping in and giving something new a try

Maybe our problem was that we happened to go here on national donut day. But they were out of almost everything, so we were not able to try the flavors we wanted. The ones they did have in stock were obviously high quality donuts, and very delicious, but not really all that unique. We had the valhrona chocolate and a... More

get a ½ dozen or more and enjoy all the flavors- all freshly made, natural ingredients without preservatives- like no commercial doughnut you've eaten before. every trip to NYC we go here. you won't even have to worry about calories since you're walking it all off in the city.

So many different choices. This donut place had to be one of the best in nyc. From small to large doughnuts. And even a giant square doughnut that is filled with Crème in every bite.

Pretty sure everyone says the same. Donuts here are out of control. My faves are the coconut cream, pb&j and crème bruleé!

I absolutely loved it here. Ate two massive doughnuts and wished I could have eaten more. I would also love to be able to ship them over to the UK. We are going back to NYC this year and this will be my first stop.

OMG the Carrot Cake, Coconut Cream and the Crème Brulee is out of this world good. We also ordered the Blueberry, Vanilla Bean, Strawberry Jam, Pecan Praline Doughnut and a Cinnamon Bun. I tried a bite of them all and I wish I could come here once a week and enjoy a different flavor each visit. Everything was delicious! This... More

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.
