They say I can’t buy happiness, but why do my dopamine levels go all silly when I buy doughnuts? Undeniably, doughnuts are just irresistible and what better way to indulge on our favorite frosted treat than on National Doughnut Day?
Today, the AM Girls will take you from places serving classic to dressed-up doughnut shops that will cater to your June 1st celebration!
Daily Provisions, Gramercy
Classic doughnuts? Say no more with Daily Provisions’ classic crullers. The rings of twisted dough are made from French pâte à choux (a much lighter and eggier dough than the yeasty American version). You can get different flavors such as maple, cinnamon, or just the classic glaze. They are serving coffee and pastries until 11:30 AM only, so it’s better to go there before 10AM!

Doughnut Plant, Lower East Side
Ever heard of coconut lime and rose petal doughnuts? How about crème Brule doughseed with crisp shells and creamy vanilla filling? This doughnut quest only gets better with a dine in experience with Doughnut Plant. Their yeast, cake and filled doughnuts are available in four NYC locations – Lower East Side, Chelsea Hotel, Brooklyn and Queens, plus there is DELIVERY, so if you can’t go out, better call their hotline for fresh baked goodies in your doorstep!
379 Grand St, New York, NY 10002 • 212-505-3700 ext. 379
The Donut Pub, Chelsea
Did you say a Doughnut Shop that is open for 24 hours? Sweet word. This 50+ years doughnut shop owned by a mom and pop is located in Chelsea, and they have the fluffiest and lightest version of traditional glazed donuts. You can also spoil yourself with filled, croissant and other special donuts. They also have little dippers, pastries, bagels and actually, almost anything you can think of when you’re craving for flavored bread!
203 W 14th St, New York, NY 10011 • 646-398-7007
Boxer Donut, Nyack
The smallest shop in Nyack, NY—definitely worth a try! One of its most renowned offerings is its maple bacon donut, and it's easy to see why: the donut is infused and topped with candied bacon (which is soaked in maple syrup), then coated in caramelized sugar and left to bake for hours—yum!
Boxer Donut 18 N Franklin St., Nyack • (845) 353-5300
