Donuts I have a serious craving HELP!

Bronx and Manhattan would be great for some serious suggestions.

  1. Well, Manhattan would be on another board. I know nothing about donuts in the Bronx, but one of the best in Queens is Alpha Donuts on the south side of Queens Blvd. in Sunnyside, and in Brooklyn it's Peter Pan Donuts on Manhattan Ave. in Greenpoint.

      Yes, yes, yes to Alpha Donuts. We wrote about it several months ago (with pictures, if you're interested in seeing what they sell)--it is easily my favorite doughnut shop in New York City. Not to mention the fact that the people who work there are the nicest folks.



      1. re: Nosher

        hey nosher, can you be more specific about your alpha post on your blog. went looking for it but couldn't find it (loved the blog, tho)

        1. re: missmasala

          Sure. You can search the site for 'alpha' and find it, but here's the direct link to the post:

          Hope you enjoy!

          Great post on your site, as always.

          peter pan's donuts are SO GOOD. definitely worth a trip to greenpoint.

        4. There's Doughnut Planet in Manhatten.

          1. Correction: Doughnut Plant...not planet, sorry!

            1. In Queens Ideal Donuts on the corner of 65th Ave and 108th Street, Forest Hills.

              1. I'm partial to the cream and jelly donuts at La Salle Bakery 3139 E. Tremont Ave. in da Bronx.
