Honey Dip Donut: 80 cents
Tiny Fey once said that Peter Pan's donuts were so good that "if [she] had a penis, [she] would put it in this doughnut." We agree with her assessment. The Polish bakery has always been a neighborhood standard in Greenpoint, but its popularity has exploded in the past couple years. The sweet, soft, fluffy honey dip is a classic, and Peter Pan does it so well that you wonder if they own the original recipe.
