Regardless if you spell it doughnut or donut these fried dough concoctions are one of my favorite sweets.  If you are following me on Instagram, then you are no stranger to my obsession with donuts.  Here is a round of up my favorite donuts in New York City and this list is NOT up for debate, but feel free to leave your favorites in the comments. 


They always say your first is special.  LOL!  Dough was the first donut shop I checked out upon moving to The Big Apple at their Chelsea location where you can sneak a peek into their back room to see the donuts made throughout the day.

Sugar and Water

The new kid on the block is making quite the impact and worth the trek to Astoria, Queens! The mastermind behind these creative dossants is Master Chef’s memorable contestant, Scotfish Francis. What is a dossant? Just imagine if a donut and a croissant had a kid together. Let that flakiness set in!
