Peter Pan's Doughnut Shop

  • f

How this place didn't pop up on anyone's CH radar I will never know. IMO they are the best doughnuts period . They are Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint. Once you eat them you can kiss DD and KC good bye. Check them out plus the they make a god cup of JOE. Has anyone CH been to this store . What do you think for Peter Pan ?

  1. Peter Pan has been mentioned here and there. I'm with you that it's probably the best doughnuts in NYC.

      1. re: FAL

        i've mentioned it several times recently on various threads. i think they make some of the best, if not the best, donuts in the city.

      2. I used to go to this place when I lived in Greenpoint in 2003/04. It was my favorite place in the neighborhood along with Thai Cafe. The thing is, we never knew it was named Peter Pan then. There was no sign on the door, no awning with a name, nothing. We just called it "The Donut Shop on Manhattan Avenue." It was so old school, with plastic coffee cups, paper aprons, etc. The donuts rocked then, and I am sure they rock now. I am suddenly hungry.

        1. Great place and ridiculously cheap, and the girls who worked there last summer had shortest skirts in New York City....Not that there's anything wrong with that...

          1. oh, I would definitely say it's a favorite among any Greenpoint Chowhound. those are some damn fine donuts. now, I'm just waiting to watch someone I know eat the cream-filled, whipped cream and a cherry topped delight that lurks in the window. that looks to be 36 hours worth of calories.
