    Doughnut Plant claims to have the world’s first square filled donut so I had to get one. The vanilla bean filled with blackberry jam donut was light and airy and the filling was very fresh.

    The peanut butter & jelly doughnuts are basically like the best slice of morning toast ever. Tres leches are great if a cake donut is more your style. Also, the Kenyan pour over is delicious too.

    Our pick for "Best Doughnuts." With yeast and cake doughnuts on the menu, you'll be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. Try the Tres Leches, Toasted Sesame or Peanut Butter Glaze with Blackberry Jelly. Read more

    You can never go wrong with the creme brûlée donut! Also try their vanilla and orange blossom donut! They also have seasonal specials!

    What's good here? What isn't! We took a selection with us to eat on the High Line. The Creme Brûlée is a must. As well as the Vanilla Bean. Not too sweet, but definitely worth your efforts.

    The coffee is decent but not amazing. However the donuts were YUM. I love coconut and the coconut cream donut is amazing and not overly sweet. The chocolate hazelnut was also good. Bathroom code: 1486

    The tres leches doughnut is technically a cake-style doughnut, but it has a sweet custardy filling that makes it super moist. Prefer a yeast doughnut? Then don't miss out on the PB&J flavor!

    These doughnuts may be pricier than most, but they're worth it. Go for the carrot cake, or the crème brûlée, or the tres leches...oh, who are we kidding, they're all pretty awesome.

    Their best seller is the creme brulee and it really is in a league of its own. The other donuts taste good too so try all flavors. The donuts are balanced, and not too sweet. 😉

    One of our new spots to visit while in New York. Haven't had a donut I didn't like. You won't go wrong without whatever you choose. Don't miss out on the bathroom!

    The chocolate chip tastes just like its namesake. The soft cake doughnut is studded with pecans and chocolate chips, then coated in a chocolate glaze and rolled in cookie dust.

    Scrumptious concord grape filled (front) & PB & Concord grape jelly filled doughseed (L) donuts- made w/ fresh Concord grapes frm Union Sq Mkt! ;9 Loved these over overly sweet carrot cake (R) donut.

    Hmmm I just can't suggest just one...go with friends and get a few...that's what I did and got to try 4 in one sitting, yum! Pistachio, chocolate, coconut, creme brûlée.....

    Pumpkin Doughnuts in both cake and yeast form. A finish of caramelized pumpkin seeds, nutty and crunchy, iced over in a spiced glaze. The cake one has cozy pumpkin flavor with of cloves and cinnamon.

    I could eat all the donuts here. Their creme brûlée is amazing! Also love their Brooklyn blackout chocolate donut and the triple chocolate cake donut. Great passion fruit donut as well!

    This location has more seating and better ambiance than the Grand St location. Yes donuts are expensive but so worth it. They have season flavors so take advantage of the while they have it.

    The doughseeds are the perfect size for a quick and filling snack to satisfy your midday sweet tooth craving. Rose and passion fruit dough seeds!

    Delicious doughnuts in interesting flavors. Right now they have a "Pecha Berry" flavored "Pokéseed" doughnut. *Poison is healed! It's very delicious*

    Ate them too fast to take pictures for this review... whoops! The coconut square was amazing (I actually don't like coconut so I was surprised). But my favorite was definitely the chocolate!

    The best doughnut store in all of NYC. Gets very busy. Do us all a favor and decide what you're gonna get while waiting in line. And check out the bathroom, you'll know why ;-)
  • KristiaMarie P.
    Go with a big group of people and share a bunch of donuts! They are all super rich but tasty. If I have to tackle one on my own I could only survive the plain vanilla yeast donut LOL

    Fab place, fab doughnuts & awesomely-cute servers (!), just a stone's throw away, but I can't go often. Yummy carbs+cute=disaster! Now, how to have the cute w/o having the delish carbs too often? :-P

    Place is stucked beside a hotel so its a bit easy to miss. Everything is delicious especially the creme brulee and pb&j, both of which seems to be almost always sold out!

    One of the best doughnut shops in NY. Accepts LevelUp payment. You get sometimes great LevelUp deals like $5 credit so you can get a doughnut for free.

    Near Hotel Chelsea. They take credit cards. Opens daily from 8-8. I loved Tres Leches & Coconut Cream. Vanilla bean glaze tastes like regular sugar glazed donuts. Each donut is roughly $2.50-$2.75.

    Their cake doughnuts are what makes them amazing, they fill the inside with icing. Not overwhelming, just makes it moist and deliciously. Love the coffee cake one.

    Oh so good. Cash or Level Up only, and they tend to run out of the best flavors as the day goes on, so go early for the best selection

    Try the blueberry cake, coco cream or carrot cake! Yes they are pricy but it's soooo worth it. I have not touched another donut since. Also VISIT THEIR BATHROOM!! Disco disco disco ball...

    Splurge on doughnuts that are a million times better than Dunkin’. You have to try the Tres Leches, the Crème Brulee and the Blackout Doughnuts. Cash only.

    Creme brûlée doughnuts are the mvp here 👌🏽,but in general the doughnuts here are the mvp doughnuts of NYC,doughnut seed type of doughnuts are a must try

    These doughnuts are the Platonic Ideal of doughnuts. After you eat one of these you will never be able to go back to other so-called donut-like substances. It's just not fair how darn good these are!
  • Ashley H.
    Ashley HornJanuary 18, 2016
    If you like filled doughnuts, go for the creme brûlée. If an 'old fashioned' is more your type, pick tres leches. But carrot cake is the all around best!
  • Roque S.
    I had a good experience. I had the Tres Leches and the Cocconut squared donut. They are in fact very very good. Coffee was good too.
  • Joori
    JooriJanuary 12, 2016
    One downer is that they don't make fresh donuts on site. They get there donuts deliveries from somewhere else and sugar coat it with many different flavors. I just want a fresh plain donut...

    The Gingerbread Doughnut is good, but not a must try. If you have a favorite, order that instead and hope the next seasonal doughnut variety will be amazing.

    Great Doughnuts but Very "Expensive" $2.75 each or 3 Times as much most other Donuts! At $33 for a dozen You Gotta be Rich to afford them! Some might say a affordable Luxury.!

    WOW...This place is def not for the calorie counter... Yes it is a bit pricey but these are not the mass produced crap you get at Dunkin Donuts. These are small batch hand made sugary heaven cakes.
