Heaven is a place on earth…

…and it’s called Peter Pan Donut and Pastry Shop located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

I figured this blog could use a little bit more sweetness to it. I’m more of a savory lady and would choose an appetizer over a dessert any day, if the choice had to be made. One sweet treat that I can never say no to is a donut. Especially when it comes from a good old fashioned donut shop. Philly is seriously lacking in this department so I was so happy to find during a recent visit to Brooklyn this gem in Greenpoint. It’s pretty much the reason I found myself one day looking at apartments in Greenpoint on Craigslist. Don’t worry Philly, you can’t get rid of me that easily.

Before I dig into the wonders of Peter Pan, I do have to thank my friend Econ for introducing me to it. She’s all kinds of awesome and I thought she more than deserved a shout out on FWTS.

I love a good sign and Peter Pan totally does it for me. It’s clear and to the point.

This is my standard go to donut, the glazed bow-tie. I love a glazed donut. I like the simplicity of it and how it doesn’t overwhelm the lightness of a good raised donut.

I thought I was fine with the bow-tie until I saw this. A BLACK AND WHITE DONUT. This donut blew my mind. I didn’t even know it existed. I actually did a little freak out in the bakery over this thing. I might have done a little dance and sang a song. Ok maybe not but in my heart I was. Chocolate frosting and coconut cream frosting, it doesn’t get any better than this folks. Unless you hate coconut, which seems to be a thing for some people but I wouldn’t know because I don’t associate myself with those people. I kid.

Peter Pan also serves up other non-donut baked goods, like bagels and I also saw someone eating a breakfast sandwich. They also make a  DONUT ICE CREAM SANDWICH! Yes I was yelling. I don’t know why I didn’t get this while I was there, I think I was trying to save my appetite for burgers. I have my priorities. If Econ isn’t mad at me for forcing her to watch My Girl, she hadn’t seen it before!, I will be visiting Peter Pan again and again and again.

    My favorite local donut shop is Donuts Plus @ 44th & Chestnut. If you’re near King of Prussia, then Suzy-Jo Donuts in Bridgeport is THE BEST around…they make this peanut butter fluff jawn that’s TO DIE FOR. Ya gotta get there early b/c they sell outta that one right quick.

    So have you eaten a burger between 2 donuts yet?

    I have always been of the opinion that chipwiches, with their hard, crispy cookies, are somewhat of a pain to eat…. but a doughnut is like the hamburger bun of the sweets family. Brilliant!

    shout out what what!!!

  • Current obsession: Frangelli’s

    [...] start this good and angry. Where the hell were you people who knew about Frangelli’s when I complained about the lack of good donuts in Philly? Were you keeping it all to yourselves? Huh? WERE YOU? WHY [...]
