Where are the best jelly donuts?

The best jelly donuts I had were in Montreal. In NYC I've tried La Delice and Orwashers. Any other suggestions? Please don't send me to Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

  1. Maybe Bouchon Bakery (weekends only I think) or bombolini at Caffe Falai?

    1. What style are you looking for?

      1. It's a perfect time for Orwashers - Sufganiot for Chanukkah!

        1. Second Bouchon Bakery, also try Sullivan St. for their bombolini

          I think the jelly donuts at Donut Pub are solid as well as if you want less traditional lookin jelly donut, Doughnut plant

              They are good. And small. Really small. Also expensive (for doughnuts).

              1. re: small h

                The PB & J is oversized for a donut, but unless they're real fresh they will taste a little condensed. When fresh, the Jelly is far less contained, which makes it feel bigger.

                It's the cake donuts which are small.

                1. re: small h

                  Small? The PB&J donut is a meal in itself.

                  1. re: Motosport

                    Oh, maybe I've confused it with another doughnut. Possibly the creme brulee. Or, as sugartoof posits, I didn't get one at the peak of freshness.

                    1. re: small h

                      The creme brulee is only bigger than a bombolini, it's the smallest donut they sell, so that makes sense. I think it's also sold at a premium price.

                      1. re: sugartoof

                        They are all sold @ a premium but worth it.

                        1. re: Motosport

                          I agree completely. Though my favorite is the coconut one.
