The place is small and decor not great but omg their donuts are insane. The creme brûlée was my favorite, followed by the raspberry and cream. I'm not a big fan of the tres leche or matcha one. definitely a must try when in the city. Can't wait to visit again

Visited here on a bus trip and desparately wanted to buy their famous crème brulee donuts but they ran out as it was later in the day. Bummer. So got two other flavored donuts and they both were very good. One was chocolate covered and had Bavarian cream in the middle.

I walked over two miles to Doughnut Plant from my office and I am glad I did because then I could try any doughnut guilt free :) The blueberry was awesome! I ordered an iced latte as well which was also delicious. Highly recommend!

What else to say. I'm pretty sure I had a food-gasm! The banana peanut butter was to die for. In a way I'm glad you guys are not next to where I live, coz I would become obese. Thanks again for this great experience.

We visited Donut Plant as our last stop on a food/ social history walking tour of the lower eat side. These were the most delicious donuts I've ever tasted. Don't miss the "creme brûlée" flavour.

We stopped by after breakfast one morning and my overall thoughts were so so. I love the uniqueness of the square doughnuts and the many flavours available, but the glazed didn't rock my world, nor did any of the others. I love my doughnuts, and these were very high on my list, but when I bit into it, it lacked... More

I'm not sure if it's worth searching for this place but if u r in the area and feel like something sweet then absolutely stop by. We went around 3:00 and some of the doughnuts I wanted to try were already sold out( Manhattan creme n tres leches). We tried pbnj, cream doughnut with coconut, creme brulee and hazelnut filled...

If you are on the lower east side and get a chance to stop by Doughnut Plant get the peanut butter and banana cream doughnut. It was amazing! The girl behind the counter was super nice too.

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.
