Sweet Treats at the Doughnut Plant, in Chelsea

Photo by myself at the Doughnut Plant, at 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue, in Chelsea.

The Doughnut Plant is a small bakery in Chelsea that specializes in all things donut. Dozens of donut lovers walked in and out while we were there, Saturday afternoon. Suprisingly, no one looked too overweight (!).

You would never think that square donuts existed, but they do. All the donuts sold here are made without eggs, preservatives or food coloring. So you can satisfy your little donut craving without doing yourself in.

We took home one peanut butter jelly donut, one glazed and one wild blueberry. Unfortunately they were so delicious, only the peanut butter jelly donut survived to be photographed.

For the Doughnut Plant website, including a timeline of their history dating back to 1910, click here.

The peanut butter and jelly donut with peanuts mixed in the glaze on the outside, and grape jelly on the inside. When eaten with eyes closed, it tastes mighty similar to a PB&J sandwich.

ps: Did anyone catch the Superbowl last night? Hooray Giants!

These are very different donuts I know. Those are almost pastry. I like the wall decorations in the shop.

A tidbit--my local thinks-he's-a-doctor guru swears by his cardiologist that we may now eat as many eggs as we like. So it logically follows that donuts are health food. Doesn't it? Well, doesn't it?

P.S. yes, it was a GREAT game. I thought I didn't care who won, but the Giants uniforms won me over by halftime. If you really loved them, you'd convince them to get more red into their home jerseys.

After going having one of their doughnuts, I find it much easier to keep running past Dunkin.

Did you go to their bathroom?

Kitty said...

Thanks everyone!

Hi Chicken,
I didn't go to their bathroom, but hey, now I have another excuse to swing by. I bet it's cute!

Cute is not the word for their bathroom.

It is also in the same building where Sid killed Nancy.

Yummy in the tummy, Kitty! I haven't had a good doughnut in weeks!
I'm back from attending the Jaipur Daily Photo blogger's wedding in northern India
