    This shop is iconic to Greenpoint. Honey glazed = all-time fave. Simple; out of this world! can't go wrong w/ any creme filled (especially coconut). Wish donuts came out early in the morning though!

    You cannot get better donuts ANYWHERE. Peter Pan has the best donuts I have ever had. Their specialty are old school style, deep fried, glazed cake donuts.

    Sometimes the donuts aren't ready until 10am.... 50 min later everything was set right in the world when I ate the honey donut. Also anything cream filled is A+. Also the BEST linzer cookie in NYC.

    Wow! The donuts here 🤩 I felt like I stepped into the 1950’s in this bakery, in a good way. Must come back to try more.

    The classic sugar donut might be the best donut you’ll have in your life. Extremely soft and delicious

    Want a variety of donuts? Check out the Peter Pan Donuts and Pastry Shop. Try the sour cream and sugar jelly, white-cream-filled powder, or the blueberry-buttermilk doughnut. The options are endless. Read more

    So much to love about this staple, classic donut shop. Cash only. Pillowy soft donuts. Bavarian filled or apple pie donuts are my fav.

    So cheap! 2 donuts and a drink for under $5. Lots of freshly made cake and yeast style rings of goodness to choose from. You can't go wrong! CASH ONLY.

    I know the red velvet train left the station not too long ago—taking with it all the cupcake vending machines, froyo shops, and cronut lines—but the red velvet doughnut at Peter Pan is timeless.

    I just called from London as we wanted to get delivery for our friend and the super helpful owner explained they only accepted cash and couldn't do delivery, but she was so nice!

    New Yorkers are passionate about their donuts (second to bagels, of course). This fried-dough mecca in Greenpoint is no frills, offering classic fillings such as egg cream or strawberry jam.

    So light and fluffy! And $1.10 a pop! Not a fan of huge dense donuts, so these are the best in my book. I bought a box of 6 to share and I already demolished two.

    Most doughnuts are $1. They bring the doughnuts out as they make them, so don't be surprised if you stop in to pick up a dozen at 9 a.m. and all they have are plain glazed. Best time is around noon.

    Although they are a donut place, there is definitely more to it: they actually have very tasty bagels 🥯 , both egg & cheese and lox & cream cheese were great!

    This adorable old-school Polish donut shop in Greenpoint has the best (and cheapest!) donuts in all of Brooklyn.

    The best cake donuts you've ever had (and I don't usually like cake donuts). Yeast donuts are great too!

    Got a mixed dozen & ate them all. No regrets. They're all delicious & it's too hard to choose a favorite. Sour cream, wheat, white cream filled, coconut, chocolate volcano cream? How to choose?!

    Go early to avoid line or skip it entirely with counter service. Not your typical "fancy" doughnuts like other BK spots. These are classic, and heavy...get the marble crueler.

    Bagels are delicious, it's not just the donuts. The best spot in town for an everything bagel with nova (fresh as it comes) with scallion CC

    Their reputation is well earned. I go for the nova bagel (fresh, delicious, and now with scallion cc) and I end up leaving with donuts too.

    Ask for the Red Velvet Volcano! It's a red velvet dough fried like an apple fritter with cream in the middle.

    Eat a Peter Pan donut and you might not be able to stomach a confectionery atrocity at one of the Massachusetts-based, ice cream mutants ever again. Donuts are a dollar and bigger pastries a bit more.

    Hands down the best donut shop in the city. Every flavor is amazing and their breakfast sandwiches are the best in the neighborhood.

    The best donut shop in the city. The sour cream and red velvet are my first choices (only $1.10 ea.). The unglazed crawlers are a fan favorite. Also home to an underrated bacon egg & cheese sandwich!

    The old-fashioned glazed donuts don't necessarily look like much, but when fresh, their taste and texture are revelatory. Arguably one of NYC's rare $1 must-have food items.

    Although known for their donuts they do mean egg and cheese sandwiches and a stuffed tomato, lox and cream cheese on a bagel

    Fresh baked donuts all day! If you don't know which to get, always go with the sugar, deliciously fluffy and perfectly sweet!

    Can't believe how cheap and delicious these doughnuts are. Only $1.10 a piece! Try the strawberry/lemon filled or sour cream doughnuts.

    Without a doubt, best egg sandwich in town. Get it on a toasted bialy, and treat yourself to a red velvet doughnut. You deserve it.

    If your close to Peter Pan's, you have to get either a Cream coconut, cream chocolate sprinkles, or of course my favorite... Red velvet cruller. They also have one of the biggest breakfast sandwiches

    Get the toasted coconut donut ($1). A perfectly fluffy yeast doughnut lightly glazed and generously sprinkled with pieces of nutty, toasted coconut shavings. Sweet, messy, and unpretentious." Read more

    One of the last bastions of cheap and reaallly delicious (non-frilly) donuts in NYC. They only take cash but each donut only costs $1.10.

    Maybe the best donut in America. Focus on the cake donuts: maple, chocolate, red velvet are standouts.

    If you ask nicely, the wonderful people here will cut a donut in half and slap a huge scoop of ice cream in between.
