There was a line.
There were anxious moments of waiting and nervous chit chatting with the lady in front of us until finally it was our turn.
We decided on four doughnuts plus a delicious organic coffee for me so I don't go psycho.
We ordered a coconut creme because I love coconut and the clerk highly recommended it, however GG is not a fan of the tropical bounty, so this was all mine. It was soft and yeasty with a pleasant fresh coconut flavor. The creme inside was not too heavy or custardy. Everything about this doughnut was coconut and I did start getting a little coconut OD towards the end.
Coconut Creme, not for the faint of heart
We definitely had to have the creme brulee doughnut. Especially since the lady in front of us kept mouthing off about how good it was. The doughnut itself was much smaller than the other ones, but I was impressed to see an actual burnt sugar coating on top. The innards were filled to the max with thick vanilla custard. This was a very naughty doughnut :) Basically desert.
What doughnut dreams are made of: Creme Brulee
Per GG's request, we sampled the Blackout, a cake based doughnut made with dark valrhona chocolate featuring a ring of chocolate pudding inside. I'm always skeptical of cake doughnuts being a little on the dry side, but this was anything but, although a tall glass of organic whole milk would be the ideal pairing for the blackout if I *had* to do it all over again.
Beam me up to The Blackout
The tres leches was the most delicate of our sampling. It was not overly sweet like the creme brulee and had a pleasant condensed milk ring inside of its moist cake structure. I appreciated the simplicity of this doughnut and how it paired perfectly with my coffee.

Good stuff at the Doughnut Plant. I was tempted to go back again during my short stay in Manhattan, but there was just too many good eats in NYC to return. Next time!
