I lived in New England for many years, and independent homemade donut shops seem to be more prevalent there. I haven't found anything to speak of near my new home in Morristown! I do love Donut Plant in the LES but I can't be driving into the city just to get Donuts!! (though I did do it one morning to surprise my pregnant wife
..left at the crack of dawn and was through the Holland tunnel.and back in no time!).
So point me to the good donut shops! I am more interested in donut specific joints, but if you know a bakery with good donuts, I'd love to hear.
