    The solid-sized dulce de leche offering is a sight and taste to behold: a fluffy, super sweet and moist ring of caramel and vanilla cake embedded with a whole bunch of savory, salty almond slivers. Read more

    Probably the world's greatest donut shop, though there are some contenders in San Francisco and Portland. The product is paradoxically light and cakey, and the range of flavors offered is wild. Read more

    Don't fuck around, get a donut. My advice? The dulce de leche – a fluffy, sweet, sticky, moist ring. Who doesn't want that shit 1st thing in the morning? Where else you gonna go? Donut plant? Please.

    The Doughnuts, pillows of buttery, yeasty airy fluffiness. Flavor combinations that drive all the senses wild. Passion fruit-cocoa nibs & Chocolate-cocoa nib. I alternate bites. The decadence.

    I live pretty close, so it won't be long til I've tried all the flavors. My favorites so far are cafe au lait and plain glazed. Awesomely delicious doughnuts! Btw, it's cash only as of January 2015.

    The Brooklyn-based bakers stick to what they know best: big, fluffy, yeast donuts in seventeen flavors. Pick up a cafe au lait or passion fruit and cocoa nib pastry from the Brooklyn Flea, Smorgasburg

    Bed-Stuy’s favorite doughnut shop, Dough, is responsible not only for Do or Dine’s famous foie gras doughnut, but also for offering a variety of other playful flavors Read more

    These are literally the best donuts I have ever had!!!! I will make special trips here for these without thinking twice. All the flavors are amazing, but I am still partial to the cafe au lait flavor.

    An array of gooey glazed doughnuts line the displays for your to drool over in this donut shop. Try the hibiscus, blood orange, dulce de leche, cafe au lait. Then go back tomorrow and repeat.

    i love their donuts...extra large and slathered in gooey glazes. i prefer the chocolatey ones over the fruit varieties: you won't go wrong with the chocolate salted caramel and dulce de leche.

    This was added right when I was almost done with Pratt but has a small but delectable variety of doughnuts. The Blood Orange one was a favorite alongside the coconut one. Also try the Nutella donuts

    Possibly the best doughnuts in New York. If you can't make it to this location, check them out at the Williamsburg Flea Market. Get a doughnut, some Stumptown coffee, and enjoy the river views!

    It's time someone spoke up for the Berry Donut (pictured right). Similar to its Blood Orange cousin, it's covered in a slightly tart fruit glaze that perfectly compliments the sweet dough

    Forget plain glaze: These pastry wizards frost their giant, fluffy rounds with clever combinations like Passion Fruit with Cocoa Nibs, a fave of Food Network star Justin Warner. Via CityEats.com Read more

    These donuts are everything. Do not walk by without going in. The dough is perfection. The icing to donut ratio was a bit much for my taste, but I'm a minimum icing type of gal.

    Had the toasted coconut donut and it was great in every bite. Not too sweet but just nice and fluffy. The chocolate and salted caramel was good too.

    The dulce de leche donuts just melt your in mouth , sinfully goodness. I have a feeling if st Peter is waiting at heaven gates with a plate of Dough donuts i have lived a good life.

    Big, flavorful, fresh-baked, doughy donuts!! Amazing flavors that you will not find at Dunkin' Donuts or any other big chain. The hibiscus donut is perfection! On Sundays, the line goes out the door.

    Pretty much everything. Go early in the morning to get the freshest donuts: My go-to is the hibiscus, but you can't go wrong with any of them.

    I love a good yeast donut and the selection here does not disappoint. many include a deeply flavored glaze rather than flavored dough, which keeps the donuts consistently fluffy.

    The passionfruit donut is amazing. Pair it with a cup of Earl Grey tea. My friend had the toasted coconut donut and paired it with a chai tea!

    Depending on my mood, I love chocolate with coacoa nibs, glaze or dulce de leche. Worth the wait. Perfect combo 2 glaze, one chocolate and one fruity. #getinmybelly

    These donuts are fantastic. Not too airy to fall flat to the sugary icings: Hibiscus, blood orange, dulce de leche, cafe au lait. At $2 a pop, these babes are dangerous.

    Hibiscus donut is amazing! Basically anything is amazing here. If you happen to be in the area around 3-4 am you might be able to snag a donut fresh from the oven!

    Maybe some of the best doughnuts there are. Go for Dulce de Leche and Cinnamon Sugar and have a coffee. If you ever travel to New York, Dough should be on your list.

    Can't go wrong with the Cinnamon & Sugary. The Toasted Coconut is like eating a giant macaroon, but the Plain Glazed is absolutely the best glazed donut I've ever had.

    I tried the cinnamon sugar and the lemon ginger both were great. The lemon ginger leaned more towards the ginger side but the aroma of lemon. Such a balance!

    Huge, mouthwatering donuts. Unique flavors and they're all good. Love the tart Hibiscus and the rich salted chocolate! Small store with view into the kitchen.

    Ooey Gooey Goodness abounds at this upscale doughnut shop. Try a nutella filled, a dulce de leche or a hibiscus, paired with a hot cup of stumptown coffee.

    Try the luminous blood-orange doughnut: stretchy, yeasty dough, slathered with a tart citrus glaze and crowned with a candied slice of the fruit. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more

    I had the salted chocolate caramel today, and it actually wasn't completely, mind-blowingly exceptional...unlike the nutella cream, however, which is totally the shit!

    The Cafe au Lait is a must try! The coffee-flavored glaze with the crunchy, crumbly coffee cake bits make this fried dough the best I've ever had. And at only $2.25, this treat is a steal!

    Cash only but worth the $1.75 ATM fee at the bodega across the street if you forget. Try everything. Even the simple glazed is on another level.

    If they have the blood orange doughnuts, go for it, no questions asked. I wish I could say the same for the Earl Gray one, not at all what I wanted it to be.

    Tried the dulce de leche and chocolate salted caramel doughnuts. I just don't see the hype. I'll give it one more try.

    The rave about this place is the interesting array of flavors no where close to your regular donut shop. Some flavors are pretty bold if you dare.

    The basic sugar & cinnamon is amazing. This is no cake-style donut, it's the real deal. Fun to sit and watch them bake behind the glass at the counter.

    My first time here and I had the best donut of my life. I can't wait to go back! Plus you can never go wrong with a place that serves Brooklyn Coffee Roasters.

    Accept no substitutes. Lemon Poppy and Salted Chocolate Caramel are the tops but even the plain is the best plain doughnut in the city

    The Nutella is my fave followed by the seasonal carrot cake donut. However my go to is the cinnamon sugar. Classic and delicious!

    Ask the baker at Dough which doughnut you should try, and you may get this answer: "The only thing better than the chocolate salted caramel is life itself." Read more

    Never really loved donuts? Firstly, what? Why? Secondly, come to Dough and try the dulce de leche, cafe au lait, or toasted coconut (or, even better, all three)! You'll love donuts after that.
