NYC National Doughnut Day Guide

Bitches Brunch Guide
Save to Foursquare

Bitches love their fried food, especially the warm, doughy, sweet kind. So it’s no surprise that when June 5th rolls around there is one thing on our minds: National Doughnut Day!

Gone are the days of glazed, chocolate or sprinkles. No, New Yorkers are taking these delightful treats to the next level. Whether you are craving something covered in powdered sugar or a breakfast snack that’s a little more eclectic, the Bitches have you covered.

Saxon + Parole
While this first delectable doughnut seems a bit par for the course, it definitely goes above and beyond to offer more variety than expected. Served with three sauces (chocolate, vanilla cream, and passion fruit), this little ball of dough started our Bitch in the City Emily’s brunch off just right. Read the review here.

Pig & Khao Brunch

Pig & Khao
Adventure is out there, specially when it comes to doughnuts. If you feel like taking a walk on the wild side, may we suggest visiting Pig & Khao for an order of their powdered sugar doughnuts? That may not sound crazy, but as our Bitch in the City Ally found out, the pandan custard that accompanies these bites is a bit strange in color. Remember slime from Nickelodeon’s Slime Time Live? Read the review here.

Pies-N-Thighs Brunch

Pies-N-Thighs
Although Pies-N-Thighs is known for their, well, pies, we were treated to one of the largest doughnuts at this funky Williamsburg-based establishment. We finished every bite of the hot pecan butter crunch treat and loved the fluffy, layered texture of the pastry contrasted with the crunch of the butter pecan. Read the review here.

Dough Loco
If you’re really into trying new things, specifically off-kilter flavor combinations, then Dough Loco has your name written on it. Known for crafting combos like maple miso and raspberry Sriracha, this one-stop flavor shop will surely have those taste buds celebrating this magical day.

Underwest Donuts
Continuing on with the unusual, to get to these doughnuts you’ll have to find yourself in the most unlikely of New York locations: a car wash. Once inside you can feast on delicious flavors including brown butter glaze, and halva made with tahini.

Orwarsher’s Bakery
Jelly doughnuts often get a bad reputation. That is definitely not the case here. Far from their goopy counterparts, these jelly doughnuts are made to order and filled with fresh fruit jam.

Doughnut Plant
A New York staple, Doughnut Plant offers some of the best variety around. One of the first in the new line of fancy doughnut shops, you can’t go wrong with their mouth-watering concoctions like Matcha green tea and crème brûlée.

Dough
What would you say to huge, yeasted doughnuts in flavors that cover everything from hibiscus to dark chocolate, and even include lemon poppy seed? What if we dropped the phrase “icing trend-setter”? Well if your answer wasn’t an immediate “YAAAAAAASSS” than perhaps dough isn’t for you. (Though we think it totally should be, these big boys look amazing!)

Peter Pan Doughnuts
If getting older means no more doughnuts then we agree with Peter, we don’t want to grow up! A neighborhood staple, this Polish bakery has been making doughnuts and filling them with ice cream for years. Tradition and ice cream, what could be better?
