    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.

    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.

    Their seasonal flavors have never disappointed, but if those don't strike your fancy, the creme brulee doughseed is always reliably delicious

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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...

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

    Love the peanut and BlackBerry jam donut. Also love the carrot cake donut. Went there at 9p.m and the donuts were still so fresh.

    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.

    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!

    Arrive off-hours! Every time I stop in before work, everything I want is out of stock. Today, none of the flavors advertised on their sign outside the shop were available. Ridiculous.

    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    Oh my God, the Vanilla bean with jelly doughnut is like being in a paradise for a while. Incredible! Lovely staff!

    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.

    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!

    Great place for a doughnut and a coff... well, forget the coffee. 4 of us got one, iced, hot, they were really bad. Stick with the excellent doughnuts.

    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 ;-)

    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!

    All I can say is I introduced this place to my friend from Midwest. He had one bite, went back in line and bought additional dozen as souvenir. It's that fabulous

    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. 😉

    A new level if Doughnuts, they will basically drive you nuts. The Creme burle and coffee cake doughnut are orgasmic

    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!

    2nd best. Doesn't come anywhere near Dough in Bedstuy. Not fresh. They don't fry in house! For the price I expect the same quality as Dough, but it's not Ben close. Staff was rude too!

    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.

    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!

    The crème brûlée doughnut is highly overrated. It would taste good as a sample at Costco. It's that small. They charge $3.50 for something good, but not amazing.

    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.

    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.....

    ALWAYS get the creme brûlée! Then something else to try. The oatmeal one is fantastic! And I'm pumped to try the new coffee cake one

    Stock up on sweet and gooey doughnuts in quirky yet delicious flavors like peanut butter and banana cream or vanilla bean and blackberry jam.

    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.

    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.

    Try the Dough Seed Orange Blossom Cashew - Lovely 2-bite dough seed filled with creme scented with orange blossom. I could do without cashews.

    They switched their coffee purveyors from Intelligentsia of Chi-town to NYC's own, Kobrick Coffee Co. Quality of the brew isn't compromised, however...

    good but nothing to fancy about. Expected to be fresher and at least warm. Ordered tres Leches (from the rave) and the guy ended up giving me a chocolate donut. Totally dry. Unfriendly service.

    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.

    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

    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...

    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.

    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.!
