Words cannot express what the donuts and coffee taste like at this place. It is a must see cult phenom in New York. Word is that they may soon be shipping them out via online checkout so our house will definitely be ordering. A must check out.

When we visit NYC, this place is a must stop. We love the creme brulee doughnuts the best. The ingredients are great and the varieties are fun.

This place is like the Forrest Gump of donuts - Cake donuts, gluten-free donuts, black-out donuts, creme-brûlée donuts, Manhattan donuts and vegan donuts. Cool dudes / awesome donuts!

Only reason I didn't give a 5 star is because there wasn't much of a selection left when we went. But from what my husband and I did buy, Pecan Praline Beignet and Creme Brûlée, it was delish!! Just wish there was more variety. We got there towards end of day, which I am sure had to do with it.

This place is just amazing. A beautiful place (big pillows on the wall,a pretty menu in the screen, many beautiful details) with the best doughnuts I ever had in my entire life. And it was not expensive (something about $1,50 each doughnut). I really recommend the blueberry, coconut and tres leche. These flavours are so delicious. Just try! :)

It's a must have in NYC. When your are tired of walking the streets of city, there's nothing like a coffee with a couple of original and lovely doughnuts. Nice service and a variety of season pies.

At their best, a donut is the perfect diet buster and will be worth every bite. I'm partial to yeast raised donuts (light and fluffy) and at Donut Plant, these big pillows of happiness are always a joy. They are huge, but so light and tender that I can eat a whole one (no, am not sharing!) and not feel... More

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!

This is the most amazing place for doughnuts. Try them all. Coffee is fab too. I've never had as good in my life this is a must taste experience.

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.
