Doughnut Plant

I have often mentioned how incredible New York City can be.  The traffic may be terrible, there are crazy people in the streets late at night and it can sometimes smell but, in spite of all of that, I love this city.

One of the main reasons I am able to ignore all the things that make most sane people move out of New York is the fact that, at any given time, you can Google the phrase "Best (Blank) in NYC" and get at least 10 awesome options.

The other day, the Google search produced the following option for "Best Doughnut in NYC": Doughnut Plant.  Clearly, any business whose name implies that it is an entire factory dedicated to producing doughnuts is a definite "to-do/to-eat" on my list.  Plus, the little dude loves doughnuts, so it was bound to be a win-win.

The name Doughnut Plant is a bit misleading, as the shop itself is a bare-bones, tiny little affair; nevertheless, Google was right: they do make the absolute best doughnuts in NYC.  They have your traditional glazed doughnuts but they also bake more creative varieties: options include Coconut Glaze, Creme Brulee, Carrot Cake and (our favorite) the Peanut Butter and Blackberry Jam. 

There are more pictures after the jump.  I hope you enjoy them.  We certainly enjoyed eating them.  The doughnuts.  Not the pictures.

This is the face of an impatient child waiting for his doughnut.

The window benches are decorated with colorful doughnuts.

I wish there was a way to properly spell the sound you make when you drool.

Carrot Cake Doughnut.  Real pieces of carrot, walnuts and raisins with a sweet cream cheese filling.

And the winner of the "Best Doughnut Ever" Award?  The Peanut Butter and Blackberry Jam doughnut.
