That old saying, “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” has a pretty narrow scope. We all know it’s meant to convey the worth of money, and not spending it like water, but think about it. There’s plenty of things we wish grew on trees, so we could walk right up and pick them. Martinis, for example. Hamburgers. What about doughnuts? We’re here to tell you about a miraculous doughnut tree, or in this case, a Doughnut Plant! Pick up a dozen or five of the city’s tastiest doughnuts at 220 West 23rd Street (and a few other locations around town)!
The Best Kind of Nut Tree
True, the doughnuts at Doughnut Plant don’t dangle off branches for people to harvest, but you can pick out all your favorites at the shop. This pastry place has every flavor of doughnut you can dream of, and some you might not have thought of, too. From dense, delicious cake doughnuts to fluffy, raised yeast doughnuts, Doughnut Plant serves them up fresh every day.
The bakers here do nothing halfway. These folks are innovators in the doughnut world. They invented a square jelly-filled doughnut, all the better for dunking or packing into a box to carry around. Heck, they even make their own jelly for filling their treats! That’s dedication to the art of the doughnut.
Delectable Innovations in Pastry
One of the shop’s perennial favorites is the pistachio doughnut, topped with crumbles of pistachio. As great as that sounds, don’t stop there. Go for the Blackout Doughnut. This thing is a masterwork of sugary delight: a chocolate cake doughnut, filled with chocolate pudding, dipped in chocolate glaze, and covered in chocolate sprinkles. (Seastreak is not responsible for the sugar crash afterwards.)
Don’t forget, Seastreak welcomes your boxed-up foods on our ferries! Grab a dozen doughnuts, then kick back on one of our luxurious catamarans for the nicest ride to and from Manhattan.
Sea you soon!
