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



  • Tres leches, chocolate and yeast donuts (especially with seasonal fruit!) are all the best doughnuts you will ever have in your life, and I doughnut tolerate any disagreement.
  • Nothing beats these doughnuts. The yeast doughnuts are light, sweet, and extraordinary. Eric Wolitzky, Top Chef Just Desserts
  • PB & J all day
  • 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.
  • The carrot cake is great
  • The crme brulee donut tastes like the most decadent dessert Ive ever had for breakfast. - Jeffrey Saad, United Tastes of America
  • Best to come here on a weekday afternoon. Otherwise, you'll wait in line forever.
  • Just the thought of a creme brulee, peanut butter and jelly, or tres leches is reason enough to hoof it to the minuscule, bare-bones, (lower) Lower East Side location. And plant yourself there.
  • If it's your 1st time, go for the Coconut. Check the chalkboard sign outside that lists the seasonal specials too
  • Seriously the best doughnuts around - airy, flaky, crumbly, moist, sticky! Get the creme brulee, the carrot, the pb&J, the coconut and the blackout! Let the salivation begin!
  • Doughnuts like you've never experienced. Especially when it's fresh. Don't even think of comparing it to a chain store.
  • Try the Doughnuts
  • A doughnut is a classic guilty pleasure, but here they are heavenly. -Yigit Pura, Top Chef Just Desserts
  • Nice to meet you, coconut-glazed doughnut filled with coconut cream. We'll be seeing each other again.
  • Eat a creme brulee donut.
  • Just remember: They're closed on Mondays.
