On Monday, we broke the news that Bed-Stuy’s Dough would be heading to Union Square this year, planting their first flag in Manhattan. But never to be outdone food-wise, Manhattan has returned the favor and it looks like Doughnut Plant, one of the city’s favorite donut joints, will open its first Brooklyn location this year.
Yesterday, Doughnut Plant shared the news via Instagram that after twenty years in business, they’re finally hopping the East River and heading to Prospect Park. Interested parties will find the new shop, which is Doughnut Plant’s third location, at 245 Flatbush Avenue near Bergen Street.
According to the bakery, they’re famous for three reasons: (1) They were the first to mix fruit and nuts into donuts, (2) they invented the creme brulée donut and (3) they invented the square filled donut, guaranteeing “filling in every bite.” Additionally, there are also cake donuts, yeast doughnuts, cinnamon rolls and even homemade ice cream on the menu.
If all goes well, Doughnut Plant will make their Brooklyn debut this October right off the 2/3 line. Welcome to Brooklyn!
