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.

We were taken here as part of our food tour. The lines were long and the flavors, many. There are three styles of doughnuts to choose from: filled, not filled, and square. They offer unique flavors such as the Pokemon, which is pecha berry doughseed. Other flavors were blueberry and cream, coconut lime, lavender flower, pecan praline beignet, vanilla bean... More

I love a good doughnut, but this is not the place to go. The doughnuts look good in the case but are relatively flavorless. We tried three different kinds of doughnuts, the yeast, the cake, and the filled. The flavor didn't live up to the names. My coconut lime cake doughnut was dry and only mildly tasted of coconut in...

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.

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.
