A few weeks ago, Robyn and I took down the city’s doughnuts on a weekend excursion. Starting in the wee hours of Saturday morning at Trois Pommes in Park Slope, we were greeted with ploofs of warm sugar dusted jelly doughnuts before trekking our way through Brooklyn…7th Ave Donut Shop, Mike’s Donuts…all the way to Bay Ridge, back into Manhattan and then, with the sun going down, we ended at Peter Pan Bakery in Greenpoint.
Of course, we made sure to rest our okoles for a midday break from intense doughnut consumption with a hefty lunch at Shopsin’s before moving up to Union Square and then the Upper West Side. Earlier that same week I did a mini bomboloni tour, coupled with a few odds and ends in the East Village and Upper East Side.

I’m happy to discover that while I may have suffered from slight doughnut fatigue the few days following our adventures, I am in fact, not the least bit tired of these fried wonders. In fact, I’m having one for breakfast right now! My favourite in the end is Doughnut Plant (the cake, not yeast doughnuts), though Trois Pommes comes awfully close and I do love bombolonis from both Sullivan Street Bakery and Caffe Falai. Oh! And not to forget – the weekend creations at Bouchon Bakery are surely worth a detour.
That’s it for now…hope you’re having a delicious week!
