Peter Pan Donuts!
To make this short and sweet, these donuts are fantastic.
Someone at my office brought them in from Brooklyn and they taste phenomenal. I've had donuts in the South, often Krispy Kreme or some other type of chain, and donuts in New England, where it sometimes seems like there's a local shop on every block or a Dunkin' Donuts nearby. I've never really been disappointed by Honey Dew or any of the other chains I've tried in the past, but Peter Pan could definitely give just about any chain a run for its money.
If you have a chance, go check it out. It's a little pastry shop in Greenpoint, a Polish neighborhood in Brooklyn, not too far from the Manhattan line. From what I tried (a chocolate-frosted and a jelly), the donuts are definitely worth the hike! They also have coffee, cookies and actual food, not just sweets, and everyone from local residents to the NYPD stops in for fresh pastries and other treats.
Hopefully I will get to take the wife there sometime for coffee and donuts.
