Bacon Croissant Donuts and More – NYC

If you’re old readers of Bionic Bites, you know I’m a HUGE fan of the original Donut Pub in Chelsea. Quite dangerously for me, they just opened their 2nd outpost closer to my apartment this year in NoHo. The store is bigger and trendier, but more importantly, are the donuts just as good?

And the answer is, for the most part, yes. I’ve been to the NoHo location three times, and out of the three, one time the donuts were stale. But only one time, so I’m hoping it was a fluke. The other times, the donuts were amazing as usual, and they also have a new selection of croissant donuts which are quite tasty.

The bacon maple croissant donut (pictured at top; $4.75) was heavy on the bacon flavor, which makes for an intense savory experience. It’s good, but…

I prefered the maple croissant donut ($4.75) which was a bit simpler.

Either way, both had the “cronut-esque” layers that Dominique Ansel made famous. However, it wasn’t as finely, multi-layered, and overall, wasn’t as buttery and crisp as the cronut. Still delicious though!

Boston cream ($2.50) was good as usual…

with lots of vanilla pudding-like filling.

Same with the sugar jelly donut($2.50) with all its glorious, gloppy raspberry jelly. This is my go-to.

As for the mini jelly donuts (3 for $2.50), the fried dough melts in your mouth, and you don’t feel as guilty eating a smaller portion, but you miss the copious amounts of jelly. I’d skip this next time and go for another full-size. Because, let’s be real. If you’re concerned about your weight, the Donut Pub is not for you.
