homemade donuts

where's the best place to buy single homemade donuts in manhattan? preferably plain, old-fashioned.

  1. Doughnut Plant. They are amazing and delicious.

    1. The Donut Plant is good but I love their smaller, moister cake donuts. I like their bigger, fluffy yeast ones too but sometimes the texture isn't a crowd-pleaser. They're a little chewy. Do a search and you'll see that this topic is hotly debated.

      Manhattan, unfortunately, has a lot of bad donuts, too.

      Honestly, I'd go to Peter Pan in Greenpoint for a big fluffy old fashioned plain donut.

          I just moved to Greenpoint and recently had both Peter Pan and Doughnut Plant.

          I will just say in the future I will be going to Doughnut Plant, I though their donuts were delicious...
