About The Donut Pub

For over 50 years this neighborhood mom and pop donut shop open 24/7 has been a fixture in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. From good old-fashioned donuts, cruellers, bagels and diner-style sandwiches to their new fangled croissant donuts, black & whites, and specialty treats like the birthday cake donut, this shop has something for everyone. A retro neon sign, swivel stools, shiny white tile, and marble counter give the shop its timeless comfortable feel. The Geduld brothers of Brooklyn built the business, which offers locals custom donuts, and catering for all kinds of events. They are the official donut of the prestigious Upper East Side Dalton School and Rodeph Sholom Temple and School.

About The Food

While frequently cited as one of the best donut shops in NYC, they are equally acclaimed for their iconic black and white cookie. And now the croissant-donut is making waves. This cravable confection has layers of dough, tender on the inside with just enough structure to hold it together. It’s hard to decide between flavors like chocolate-glazed with a caramel filling, maple-glazed with big crunchy pieces of bacon, and s’mores with toasted marshmallow and crisp graham crackers enrobed in chocolate. Luckily the 9-pack includes plenty of choices and opportunities to try them all.

Meet The Owner

Born and raised in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, owner, Buzzy Geduld started the Donut Pub with his brother after losing his first job as a quote boy on a trading floor. From this classic donut shop Buzzy learned the lessons that would serve him in all of his subsequent business endeavors. Years after becoming a partner at the Nasdaq market-maker Herzog, Heine, Geduld, he and his partners sold the firm to Merrill Lynch. Known more as a legendary New York trader than a donut purveyor, Buzzy has always maintained his passion for his special Chelsea bake shop. As he says, “I learned how to run a brokerage firm from the Donut Pub.”
