Caroline’s Donuts

In the battle for Bed-Stuy doughnut supremacy, Caroline’s scores an upset over Fan Fan like a bracket-busting win from a 15 seed during March Madness. The consistency of their dough is on the verge of being dense, but stops just short so you still get that desired squishiness. If you’ve only allotted yourself one treat, get the Orange Cream Cheese. You also can’t go wrong with the plain glazed if you want something simpler. This place is takeout-only, so grab your donuts and head to the tables and chairs at Brevoort Playground just two blocks away.
