Finally made it out here after seeing on Food Network. What the place lacks in size and atmosphere, it makes up for in deliciousness! The Chai Tea here is just awesome and very authentic. A small is only $2. The doughnuts are pricey---4 for $11-- but simply amazing. I'm not a big doughnut person but these are just scrumptious. Check it out!

I actually live a couple blocks from the doughnut plant, and have passed by the place numerous times, but I have never ventured in. After hearing about the doughnut plant being featured in numerous newspapers and on food network, I decided to give it a try. And boy was it worth it!! I tried the cake doughnut- ( a cake-like texture) Tres leches- which was incredibly moist and sweet. I also tried the yeast doughnut (with a crunchy like texture)- the coconut creme and it was incredibly smooth and creamy and crispy. After trying two mouthwatering donuts, i returned later that day again and found myself buying the blackforest doughnut which was incredible! i highly recommend trying this place once in your life time- it is absolutely devine!

This is really a great place. The donuts are wonderful. My wife and I walked probably a mile to find this place. We had the Coconut donut which was incredible. We also had the Chai hot tea which was incredible. These are the best donuts we have ever had. Make sure to get there before 6:30pm on the weekends because they get sold out quickly.

Not a doughnut person, but this place makes you change your mind. It really is just godly!

After walking for what seemed like a mile, we finally found the Doughnut Plant. I was so excited to be there after reading all the reviews and seeing all the hype on TV I thought I was in for a taste explosion of my life. Sadly though it was a huge let down. I ordered 6 doughnuts that cost me $16.00 dollars in cash! An insane price for what I recieved, strike 1. No credit cards I was told, so if someone tells you they take credit cards, you better take cash with you instead. Strike 2. By the time I got up to the counter, there was only 2 flavors of doughnuts left. Lavender and Coconut Cream. The lavender, as my husband put it, tasted like "pledge" or "off". I thought he was just being silly, so I tried one. It was not that good at all, how anyone would ever think it would taste good is beyond me. To get the taste out of my mouth I tried the Coconut Cream. It too wasn't that "Great". I can't say for the rest of the products they may put out, because again, there wasn't a selection to choose from. Strike 3. In the end, I threw the rest away.

I would like to start by saying I'm not a fan of doughnuts at all. When a relative brought 5 boxes of doughnuts from Doughnut Plant to a gathering i was intrigued by the varieties (Lavender, Tres Leches.. etc). After taking a bite of the lavendar i was hooked. Who knew a flower could be so amazing! And upon trying a Tres Leches i knew i would be a fan of this place for life! The doughnuts are in no way too sweet or greasy. For those who think that these doughnuts are just ok I would love to know where they would get doughnuts that they think are amazing...

I saw Doughnut Plant on the Food Network. I am not a big fan of doughnuts but I knew I had to try the TRES LECHES. I tried it and it was the BESTdoughnut I have ever eaten. It was not heavy, greasy or too sweet. I will definitely make another visit to the plant on my next visit. If you think Krispy Kreme is the best doughnut. This will surpass it. You will never want another Krispy Kreme again.
