Spent 2 weeks in NYC and went here twice and it wasn't close to our accommodation. The doughnuts are delicious.

This place set a new bar for me in terms of doughnuts. They are incredible! I had the peanut butter and jam one and the creme brulee one. The coffee is also fantastic. I've come back to the UK unable to eat the stale, rubbish, boring doughnuts they have here. I ate the best doughnuts of my life in doughnut... More

Super nice experience. Clean looking store with a modern, classic touch. Personnel was helpful and courteous. Doughnuts were super! A wide variety of rather unusual flavors and types of doughnuts is sure to please all of us. Don't hesitate to go to this store for a quick snack or dessert. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Based on the reviews I feel like I'm missing something because these donuts weren't that good. They looked good is all I can say.

The best doughnuts ever! We tried a few; had the coconut cream, Brooklyn blackout, carrot cake and strawberry... Yum! Cool little place with perfect decor! A great pit stop on a freezing day!

We were waiting for a table at a restaurant a few blocks away and decided to pop into the Doughnut Plant to pick up snacks for later. It was very early afternoon on a weekday and only a few people in front of us. Two minutes later the line was out the door with more than twenty people behind us.... More

This was the best doughnut I have ever eaten! We went in hoping to try the Creme Brûlée doughnut but the were all gone.. We were pretty full as we had just eaten, so we wanted to try one of the little ones that were stuffed with something, I chose the blueberry cream doughseed! It was amazing - honestly the... More

Small place but interesting selection of donuts. I had the praline beignet and the cashew orange blossom. The orange blossom was amazing with a delicious cream center that wasn't that white fluffy stuff. This isn't a complaint but more of a suggestion: the box of donuts on the counter that show what you have and the electronic board menu don't... More

The staff weren't super welcoming when I visited but who cares, I was there for the doughnuts and they did not disappoint.

Such a treat yo self morning here! I love the graphics and simple outline of their signature square donuts as well as the unique, amazing taste. These are more deluxe doughnuts that are great for a once in a while treat. So many flavors we wanted to try, but the coconut cream was the group favorite. We tried the Brooklyn... 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.
