Peter Pan Donut and Pastry Shop has been serving the Greenpoint neighborhood for more than 60 years, and it’s still bathed in the aura of yesteryear, thanks to its mid-century decor, its S-shaped counter, and its employees, who wear I Love Lucy–like green and pink dresses. Doughnuts are made fresh throughout the day, which means you can always find a hot pastry here, no matter what time you roll out of bed. The shop turns out classics, like traditional cake doughnuts and French crullers, and a couple of inventive twists, like red velvet and toasted coconut, but the old-fashioned glazed doughnut, available daily, is Peter Pan’s masterwork. Sporting spongecake-like consistency, it’s covered in a vanilla glaze. Enjoy it early on a weekday morning with a cup of black coffee.
