Doughnut Plant

Having made the pilgrimage from New Jersey to the Lower East Side on a handful of occasions specifically for these doughnuts, we can tell you from first-hand experience that they are the best we have ever had – hands-down.  And believe you me, WE KNOW DOUGHNUTS.  But don’t just take our word for it.  Check out these other reviews:

“So was it worth the trek? Is Doughnut Plant all it’s cracked up to be? My taste buds offered a resounding round of applause. Yes, definitely yes. Peanut butter, banana-filled (Elvis would be proud), and coconut cream, FTW! We savored the frosted, pillowy soft treats like so much heavenly nectar.  Verdict: Next time you’re in NYC, make the trip. It’s worth eating salad for a week just to put away copious calories of these extra-special treats.” (Hannah Sentenac, The Miami New Times Food Blog)

“If the cupcake craze is getting you down, head to the Doughnut Plant, where the all-American junk food staple is elevated to high art. Fresh seasonal ingredients go into these decadent treats, with real fruit and imported chocolate mixed into the batter.” (Fodor’s Travel)
