Doughnut Plant

Choose from three types of handcrafted doughnuts daily: yeast, cake and filled in a variety of flavors at this beloved bakery. Yeast doughnuts are light, airy, fluffy yeast-raised doughnuts, with a slight chew. Cake doughnuts are leavened with baking powder, and have a texture somewhere near the intersection of a classic birthday cake and a buttery pound cake. Filled doughnuts are loaded with our house made jams, creams and custards.

Popular flavors include Coconut Cream, square Peanut Butter & Jam and Tres Leches, and look for seasonal flavors like Creme Brulee and Cacio E Pepe (like the pasta). Gluten-free and vegan options available.
