Doughnut Plant

I finally went to Doughnut Plant. This place has been on my “go to” list for a while, and I wasn’t able to go to last semester.

My friend, Kristin, and I ventured out in the New York cold on Saturday to make our first city trip of the semester. After our seemingly long subway ride, we walked until we saw Doughnut Plant. We went to the Chelsea location, but they also have one in the Lower East Side and one in Brooklyn.

A busy Saturday at Doughnut Plant.

This small shop was quite busy when we went. The line wasn’t out of the door when we got there, which was awesome. When I looked at the menu, I had a hard time choosing which flavors to buy. So many of them sounded delicious. I quickly chose a few to get right before it was my turn to order.

Some of the flavors they have are Coconut Cream filled, Vanilla Bean yeast, Orange Blossom Cashew yeast, Apricot cake, and Pistachio doughnut seed, and more. A doughnut seed is a smaller doughnut. See why I had a hard time choosing?

I bought Wild Blueberry cake doughnut, a Crème Brûlée doughnut seed, and a Peanut Butter and Blackberry Jam square doughnut. I really wanted to get a Tres Leches doughnut, but they ran out. 😦

The Wild Blueberry cake doughnut was my favorite out of the three I bought. I thought it was perfect. I mean, I love almost everything blueberry, so I could be biased. Haha. Crème Brûlée was different for me. I’ve never actually had the Crème Brûlée dessert, but based on how Kristin described it, it tasted just like it. The Peanut Butter and Blackberry Jam square doughnut was my least favorite. It was dipped in peanuts and filled with blackberry jam. I wouldn’t have asked for it if I knew it did because I don’t like peanuts. If you can don’t mind the peanuts being on it, you might like it.

I had a wonderful experience here. I definitely want to come again to try other doughnut flavors. The service was great. The employees were very nice and quickly finish orders. The only downside was not having many places to sit on a busy day.

Here are a couple more photos from my day.

    Those donuts look sooooooo delicious and I am starving right now! That shop reminds me of a recently opened place in LA not far from my job, called B Sweet, except its specialty is banana pudding. I love how all these dessert places have grown so trendy and niche with all their cool flavors. Yummm.

      They were as delicious as they looked! Ooo. That sounds tasty. I love it, too. It’s like some sort of a dessert boom, and I completely agree. If I ever visit LA, I’d love to try B Sweet.
