Doughnut Plant takes the doughnut to the haute level. It's not right to really compare it to any others, unless those doughnuts are also $3 a pop. I like doughnuts therefore I like Doughnut Plant, but they're more of extravagant splurges. You would NEVER find my mother waiting 30 minutes in the freezing cold for a $3 doughnut even if it's the size of her face and has boysenberry filling. The cold even wins out against me after 7 minutes. And if you thought the new Chelsea location of Doughnut Plant would cut down on crowds, you're funny and slightly delusional.
