Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop
For seven decades, this charming donut shop—still reminiscent of its 1950s origins and decor—has served Greenpoint daily while garnering a multitude of fans in New Yorkers across many generations. The current owners, Donna and Christos Siafakas, bought it in the early 1990s (Donna, inspired by a television show, sourced the retro-style uniforms which have become so popular with customers they’ve been lent as Halloween costumes). Amazingly, nearly everything is still done by hand (cutting, frying, finishing). Favorites include the red velvet, blueberry buttermilk, and toasted coconut, plus classics like the powdered old-fashioned, Boston creme, and apple crumb.
How to order: Walk-ins accepted, open daily.
