It’s National Donut Day! DOUGHn’t you want a doughnut with your coffee?

It’s NATIONAL DONUT DAY! To celebrate, we’re “treating you” to a feature post on a sweet treat that New Yorkers love to pair with their beloved coffee- one of America’s favorite pastries: the doughnut. I’ll admit, I didn’t quite get the doughnut hype when I first moved to New York. Until recently. Because we’re not just talking about any doughnut here. We’re talking the scrumptious, fluffy, sweet and majestic glory of a doughnut from Brooklyn’s own craft bakery: Dough.

If you don’t read anything else in this post, read this: If you’re not on the Dough bandwagon, you’re missing out.

Dough is located in the heart of Brooklyn, but distributes its treats to coffee shops around New York City. In fact, you’ll find a sizeable list of CUPS shops (keep reading below!) where you can discover where to get your Dough fix along with your coffee.

So what distinguishes a Dough doughnut from the other doughnuts out there? Pastry-chef Fany Gerson struck brilliance when she concepted her creation, which was inspired from European and Latin American desserts. Gerson’s doughnuts boast organic ingredients sourced from across the globe, which pairs well with New York’s local coffee shops that serve Dough treats. Many shops with a mission to serve organic and/or ethically sustainable coffee. In short, coffee and Dough are a true match made in doughnut heaven.

Here’s just a sample list of the doughnut flavors you can get at Dough.

  • Dulce de Leche
  • Tropical Chili
  • Passion Fruit
  • Chocolate with Earl Grey
  • Hibiscus
  • Chocolate Salted Caramel
  • Cafe au Lait
  • Chocolate with Cocoa Nibbs
  • Toasted Coconut
  • Lemon Poppy
  • Glazed
  • Mixed Berry
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Lemon Ginger
