Doughnut Plant

Doughnut Plant was another recommendation from my Aunt and Uncle. Except, I had already put it on our list of things to see. There was suppose to be line-up, just like Grimaldi's from the other day! Luckily, we went early enough before any line-up started. We were really lucky. After we got our doughnut, the shop filled up pretty quick.

Doughnut Plant
379 Grand Street
New York, NY 10002

They're on facebook and twitter too!

Here's a list of their featured doughnuts of the day. They have different types of doughnuts for you to pick from: yeast, jam, and cake. We really wanted to try the crème brulée one, but we were told there would be a 30 minute wait. We should have waited for it, because in the end, the store we were going to next wasn't open until noon!

Since my brother didn't try the cupcakes on this trip, he got to choose a doughnut and he picked...

The vanilla bean doughnut! I took a bite and it was pretty good, although I would have liked to try a flavour we wouldn't find in Toronto. Next time, I'll come with an empty stomach. I really shouldn't eat breakfast before heading out, I get too full and don't get to try all the neat things we see.

This is where we sat and watched the crowds come in. =)

  6. omg, who would've thought that i'd be able to get a taste of their yummy doughnuts last weekend! since they only have a store in tokyo, and well..let's just say that where i live is nothing near Tokyo,i was psyched when i knew they were opening a small shop for a few days where i live!

    tried the tres leches and daymnn, they were goooood!the yeast donuts were a bit tooooo sweet for me,but tres leches definitely came up to my expectation.keeping my fingers crossed that they'll open a branch where i live! :D
