This bakery essentially singlehandedly started the specialty donut boom thats gripping the nation. Donuts have been a part of owner Mark Isreals family for more than 100 years, and in 1994 he opened The Doughnut Plant using that same recipe his grandfather used. By building on that classic recipe, hes made a name for himself and his bakery, and hes also created a few now-legendary inventions, like the square jelly-filled, peanut butter and jelly (left), and tres leches donuts. — Dan Myers, 12/14/2012

The creme brle doughnut is a masterpiece, with crunchy burnt sugar outside, and creme custard on the inside. They are a bit costly but they are bigger than your average donut and mighty delicious.

Get the seasonal doughnut (strawberry in summer) but never underestimate the Tres Leches. It looks harmless, but its really really good.

The shop that started the fancy doughnut craze in New York, it's still turning out some of our favorites. Try the creme brulee, tres leches, or peanut butter and jelly.

Doughnut lovers paradise!The doughnuts are amazing! The coconut creme doughnut and the gingerbread doughnut are unique and delicious. $3.75 per doughnut isn't expensive. Coffee is great as well.
