We’ve all been in that situation where it’s cold, rainy and generally unpleasant outside and all we need to do is stop inside a cute little coffee shop to warm up our tummies and spirits. Well, if you happen to be in Long Island City you can stop into the Doughnut Plant for a delicious sip of coffee and a doughnut to make you feel happy!
In the Doughnut Plant, dozens of delicious doughnuts are served every day along with steaming coffee ground straight from the beans to warm you up. They are handmade fresh every day and have no eggs, trans fats or preservatives. What a deal!
The Doughnut Plant was founded in 1994 by Mark Isreal. For years, it was just him making all the doughnuts and delivering them himself to specialty shops all over New York City. But in 2000, he finally opened a store on Grand St. in Manhattan and ever since then they have been making beautifully crafted doughnuts for all of New York City.
Now let’s get to the good part: the doughnuts! I absolutely LOVE the doughnuts at the doughnut plant because there are so many interesting flavors to delight the taste buds and quite frankly the whole body. The doughnut plant makes six main kinds of doughnuts; Yeast, Filled Square, Doughseeds, Cake, Filled Cake and Gluten Free. My favorites are the classic yeast because they are light and fluffy and taste like heaven. Some of my favorite flavors include Apple Cinnamon, Rose Doughflower, Tres Leches, Cinnamon Sugar, Carrot Cake and Black and White.

Overall, The Doughnut Plant is an amazing place that I recommend to anyone who loves doughnuts as much as I do!
