Queens doughnut lovers can now experience a whole new menu of the classic treat from a popular city-based store without having to leave the borough.

Manhattan-based Doughnut Plant opened its first Queens location in Long Island City on Tuesday, complete with doughnut-shaped stools.

The store, which signed a 10-year lease for a 8,500-square-foot space in the Falchi Building at 31-00 47th Ave. last year, will be the second production home for the company, which also has a 4,000-square-foot space in the Lower East Side.

Doughnut Plant is holding off on a grand opening ceremony for the location as the bakery isn’t fully completed, but during its soft opening, patrons can try the full range of menu options at the store, including doughnuts, coffee, tea, milk and juices. The store will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

Established in 1994 by Mark Isreal, Doughnut Plant products are now sold at various retailers throughout the city, including at some Shake Shack and Dean and DeLuca locations.

The firm also opened a location in Japan in 2004, and has since expanded to nine spots in the “Land of the Rising Sun,” and one in Seoul, Korea.
