    These are the best donuts ever. I'm serious. I'm a donut connoisseur, so you can trust me. These are the platonic ideal of donuts.

    just as tasty as the Brooklyn location and with a better selection but also with more tourists to fight over the best flavors. call me crazy but the good old plain glazed is still my favorite.

    Donuts the size of your face...literally! But seriously, these are amazing. Light and fluffy and so good! Lemon poppyseed is my favorite but I still have a lot of flavors to try!

    Dough opens its newest shop in Manhattan. Taste the shop's superlative yeast doughnuts, especially their incredible Dulce de Leche creations topped with slivered almonds. Read more

    Altho' Passionfruit + Blood Orange frostings are tastier than most, doughnuts here are breadier & less sweet which I prefer. IMO, they're still less oily & not as dense than the 1's @ Doughnut Plant.

    where to begin? Donuts are big, soft and delicious! Earl grey chocolate donut has some a delightful spice. Seasonal pumpkin donuts are the best thing there.

    Very unique and artisanal flavors - I loved the crunch of the Boston creme and the tartness of the lemon poppy. Get a few to take home!

    Have tried 3 different donuts and all were amazing! The mocha almond is my favorite so far. The texture of the yeast doughnuts is unbelievably good. Definitely must stop in if you visit.

    Hard to find and the interiors are a bit rusty. MaybeI had high expectations, not sure but I didn’t find the wow factor everyone’s raging about. Tried their Blood Orange and Nutella, all were fine.

    Regulars like Salted Chocolate Caramel, Cafe Au Lait, Passion Fruit along seasonal flavors such as Grapefruit Tarragon and Blueberry Lemon are some to try.

    Loved the hibiscus donut, but I have to bring it back to the classics - chocolate frosted and glazed melt in your mouth. Out of this world.

    My fave donuts. Choco Nibs is #1 (best icing to dough ratio). DucleDeLeche is flavorless to me. Salted Choc is too sticky to enjoy. Hibiscus is pretty, but I would prefer a choc donut vs. flowery.

    I'm a sucker for doughnuts, not your run of the mill dough but the artisanal kind. Dough offers a good selection, I had the coconut glazed ones but for me Doughnut Plant rules!

    Had the dark chocolate ganache type of donut and it was amazing, especially with coffee. Chocolate was smooth and decadent, dough of donut wasn't too sweet, perfect airiness texture.

    My favorites here are the cocoa nib, coconut, glazed and lemon poppy! Can get a bit dense if sitting around so get them fresh!

    Don’t sleep on the glazed you newb. Best judge of a donut place btw- can’t hide behind advanced flavor profiles you sea lions are easily dazed by. Read more

    The earl grey chocolate is way better than I could've imagined of that flavour combo. The nutella doughnut will make you realize you're not tired of nutella, and you probably never will be.

    They have a variety of flavors and more exotic ins like hibiscus and passion fruit but my absolute favorite is the dulce de leche covered in almond slivers. It's the perfect donut.

    These are the most incredible doughnuts! I tried the pumpkin it was soft and airy and the frosting was just right not overly sweet but just enough. I love this place!

    You can't go wrong with the hibiscus doughnut. I also love the lemon poppy seed and the chocolate earl grey!

    Lemon Poppy, cafe au late, mocha almond i guess,three of them were divine, but get your coffee with you, coffee available is just fine

    If you are a dough-nut fiend, Dough is a must. Plenty of fluffy and airy doughnuts from this Flatiron outpost.

    Dough is perhaps my favorite donut place in manhattan. The plain glazed is simply perfect, all are delicious, but some very rich. However, the service is sooooo slowwww.

    Passionfruit (front) + dulce de leche doughnuts were IMO more tasty & less oily & dense than the ones at the Doughnut Plant.

    I really liked the dulce de leche doughnut. It has tons of flavor and great crunch from all the almond flakes. Sophisticated flavors for doughnuts!

    Everything, but if your looking for something different try the Passion Fruit and Hibiscus donuts. They are unlike anything you’ve ever had.

    They have something for everyone's taste. Good rich donuts. Homemade. You can see into the kitchen! Once you go, you'll never look at Dunkin the same way.

    Surprisingly not busy for a Saturday morning. Grab a half dozen to try as many flavors as you can. Personal fav so far is dulce de leche

    every donut is the best donut here. I don't know what their secret it but it's in close quarters to Krispy Kreme (with the red light on).

    Awesome place..crowded all day but worth the wait. Creme brûlée donut is a work of art. Loved the NY cream (not Boston cream).

    Donuts here are amazing! Maybe the best I've had. The dulce de leche was delicious, definitely our favorite. But all of the others we tried were also great.

    HIBISCUS donut was perfectly airy, glazed with a beautiful pink, just-sweet-and-tart-enough icing.

    Many creative donuts from margaritas (with tequila) to guava cheesecake. But as always the best one is the plain glazed one.

    Dough's flavors are pretty yawn-inducing, but their yeast donuts have a heavenly buttery texture that's better than Doughnut Plant's. Skip the cake donuts tho—they're a little dry.

    My fav donut shop in NYC; portion is big and better priced than donut plant. The horchata flavor was tasty!

    The passion fruit donut is terrific: the mix between sweet and sour is just perfect! The almond leche is great, too!

    I love the dulce de leche and the toasted coconut, but my best friend worships dough for its work with hibiscus. Much recommend

    The passion fruit curd stuffed donut I had in September was mine blowing. Like many of their flavors, it's seasonal... So waiting till next year :)

    Super fresh doughnuts. Basic sugar cinnamon is the way to go but if you want something different, get the lemon poppy!
