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.

i have been wanting to try this place for quite a while so of course.. my expectations were way too high. the doughnut (tres leches) tasted good but was so heavy and thick. i literally felt like there was a rock in my stomach after i polished it off. personally, i prefer the lighter and more subtle taste of a doughnut. this was like eating two desserts at a time... and i have a sweet tooth! definately not for me... but i can see the appeal.

We went down there to try them & we did but neither one of us feel the need to make that long journey again.

I LOVE donut plant donuts!! Once you try them you'll never go anywhere else! I prefer the cake donuts (the smaller ones) to the big, yeast donuts. My favorite flavors are the tres leches (a cake donut with glaze on the outside and infused with 3 different kinds of sweetened, condensed milk...OMG so good!!), the blackout donut (a chocolate cake donut with chocolate glaze, chocolate crumbles, and the inside is filled with chocolate pudding = heavenly!), and the coconut creme-filled donut (a yeast donut with coconut glaze and dried coconut on the outside with a coconut cream center that is light and amazing!). Okay, I'm drooling! Can't wait to go back! :-) Oh, and the counter help is super duper nice!

These were the best donuts that i have ever had!! People need to understand a few things though.........sort of/kind of expensive, it is NY though, right? This is not a sit down coffeehouse/Dunkin donuts place. I went and bought 1/2 dozen and ate them with my daughter while driving to park the car. The donuts were awesome. Can i say the best in the city...i have not been to them all to say that, but, these were the best that i have had. Also understand that the selection is not great, there were maybe 8-10 varieties when i went, i basically got one of each...all were great. Guy behind the counter was very helpful.

Yummy donuts! They look big, but they're quite light and perfectly sweet. I tried the raspberry donut which was made with fresh pureed raspberries and you could really taste the flavor of the fruit. Sooo good! I can't wait to go back and taste more flavors!

Everything about this place and the food was amazing. Hands down one of my favorite places in the city.
