The original Dough is where its at. While they have Dough everyone, this is the location that started it all and literally perpetuated my love for doughnuts. 

The lemon poppy remains the top doughnut at Dough but then there is the dulce de leche with the slivered almonds,  a glazed, hibiscus, cafe au lait (also great), passion fruit, and cinnamon sugar. These are yeast doughnuts and they are the size of a baby's head. Great by themselves but even better with a cup of coffee or tea, there is flavor for everyone. 

This shop is small but I'm so happy for the owner on how much they've expanded. My waist has also expanded thanks to Dough haha. 

Happy eating and remember: Don't deny, satisfy! 


Dough is home to some of the coolest, most unique donut flavors I've ever seen! They have anything from a standard glazed donut and chocolate to a lavender donut or dulce de leche. Anyone can find a flavor they like!


You really can't go wrong with any of the doughnuts here! They might be the best in NYC! I'm really so blessed to live so close! 

Dulce de Leche, Nutella filled, hibiscus, or glazed, every doughnut here is a winner, especially paired with a Stumptown coffee.


The Dough in Brooklyn the sunday is very nice. You can do the Dumbo market with your amazing Donut.
The Hibiscus is my favorite one - I love the color and the taste :)


i have a pretty serious donut obsession. i can say that out of all the donuts i've had in my life, the moment i had a bite of dough, i knew this was the perfect donut and we were meant to be. seriously, the dough is chewy but soft and not too sweet. the chocolate earl grey, salted chocolate caramel, and dulce de leche are my favorites. would i marry these donuts? the answer is yes, you fool. i think they're known for their hibiscus donut but it's a little too tarte for me. if you're in manhattan, they also have a branch in the flatiron.

This place lives up to its reputation. These doughnuts are HUGE and very tasty. The texture is light and spongy so that they completely compress when bitten into. My personal favorite is the toasted coconut, but the traditional glazed is also great. Be prepared to line up, especially if going on the weekend. However, the glass window provides entertainment while you wait as you watch the bakers meticulously making all sorts of delicious treats (I’m not sure where these go as the store only sells doughnuts). Pair your doughnut with a thick Ronnybrook chocolate milk from the fridge and you’ll be in sugar heaven!

yum yum and yum! when in BK, do not forget to stop at Dough. Treat yourself! They are not too expensive and always fresh

One word Doughnuts! If you like fresh warm doughnuts this is the place to go. Choose your poison and Enjoy the deliciousness. You are Welcome!

I frequent the Dough shop in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and I love it. Usually on weekends, there's a line out the door before noon, but it moves pretty fast. The space itself is great. There are huge windows, with just a couple of bar stools and a small window counter. There are windows separately the line of customers and the bakery, so you can watch the staff making the doughnuts. Also, I love how fresh the doughnuts are at this shop (not sure how fresh they are at other locations). Every doughnut you eat there has been made not just that morning, but probably in the last 90 minutes. Glorious. They et really creative with the flavors, but my favorite remains the hibiscus...bright pink and very sweet, but the frosting is made from real hibiscus flowers in-house, and there's an edible candied hibiscus flower on every doughnut, which is huge, BTW.

If you are a doughnut lover you NEED to go to Dough! You will get overwhelmed by the number of options so solve that problem with just bringing home a dozen. They are delicious and reasonably priced!
