Donut Tour in New York

During the Donut Tour in New York you’ll try some of New York’s most delicious donuts. This unique food tour will take you to four authentic donut shops in Manhattan, where you’ll get the chance to sample a variety of tasty and unique donuts. You are probably already familiar with this typical American treat from supermarkets or cafes, but there’s a high chance that you won’t settle for anything less after trying the donuts on this tour. You will discover what a real donut is supposed to taste like! Together with a guide, you’ll walk from one shop to another and at the same time explore a nice part of Manhattan.

New York Donut Shops

You’ll meet your guide at the Hotel Chelsea, also located in the Chelsea neighbourhood. You’ll sample your first donut at Doughnut Plant, next to the hotel. This shop has cushions on the walls in the shape of all the donuts they sell. The donut you try here will pleasantly surprise you; it was one of the tastiest I have ever had! As you make your way to the next shops on this tour, the guide will tell you about the history and architecture of New York. You’ll pass by the Flatiron Building, walk along Fifth Avenue and into Greenwich Village. This area of Manhattan is full of character and old school New York charm. You won’t find tall skyscrapers or hordes of tourists here. Along the way you can already start looking forward to the tasty treats that are still to come!

The Best Donuts in New York

There are two other donut shops to visit before the tour ends at the Doughnut Project in the West Village. At each location you receive a sample of the shops’ best donut(s). You’ll see and taste each shop’s own style, both in terms of the dough and the special kinds of glaze. For example, I tried a croissant donut, a salted caramel chocolate donut and an ‘everything donut’ (inspired by the everything bagel) with seeds.

Eric’s Tip: The samples are big, so don’t eat too much beforehand. Perhaps you’ll even earn the champion’s sticker for the participant who manages to succeed by eating all of the samples. This tour will take you to unique local businesses that you probably wouldn’t have found so easily by yourself. This is where New Yorkers get their donuts! I wasn’t familiar with all of the shops before the tour, but I have definitely found some new favourites. Learning about the history and the architecture of the city is also a bonus.
