Undoubtedly the best doughnuts in NYC! I have tried many donuts and these are the best! My personal favorite is the tres leche. I have no idea how many calories these have in them, but they are worth it! I figure walking in NYC is my workout for the day, so indulge yourself with one of their specialty donuts.

These doughnuts may be a little more costly, but I loved them! Every one was unique in flavor and it wasn't just the frosting, but the actual doughnuts that were flavored! Whether you prefer yeast or cake or someone with a sweet surprise in the middle, this place is perfect for doughnut lovers of all ages!

Great NYC stop... Great selection of interesting doughnuts... I had the Peanut Butter Banana Cream and it was amazing..!! A bit more expensive than a traditional doughnut but worth it..! They also offer beverages and coffee.

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.

Thank Barbie5067

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.
