Great selection ...... if it was a daily trip for us it would be a little too rich tasting, but still a great treat.

I live in Escondido, had these donuts many times and understand that Peterson's is an institution around here. Fact is I DO NOT LIKE Peterson's Donuts. They are too heavy...too dough-y and sometimes the fat from the frying sticks to the roof of your mouth--YUCK....

We sampled three different doughnuts and enjoyed all three. However our very favourite was a "Boston Cream" type with the pudding filling and iced with chocolate. It is a little difficult to order. You order through a window and have to describe which one you want. Our window waitress was not very friendly and helpful while we were making our... More

Peterson's Donuts are one of the biggest experiences in Escondido. You want a donut you go there. They are open 24 hours and they always have fresh donuts. They are huge and they make tons of different ones. You can't go wrong with Peterson's. I wish we had one in Hemet. Love them

Went here with my wife for dessert on our date night. There was a bit of a line but they are reasonable and worth the wait! Not only do do they have assorted EXTRA-LARGE pastries, they make seasonal specialty pastries and donuts like the many different types of Pumpkin flavored confections! BONUS TIDBIT: THEY ARE OPEN 24Hrs!!! They do charge... More

No matter the time of day, if I'm even remotely close to Escondido I stop at Peterson's. The donuts are fabulously fresh every time.

I'm not the big donut person, my husband and daughter are fanatics though. We stop at small donut places everywhere we visit. This place was amazing! The donuts are reasonably priced and seriously bigger than my fist, the apple fritter is almost as big as my husband's head! So many choices, you can look through the glass at all their... More

I am not even someone who likes donuts but this place will make you a convert. You must have willpower to stop here. It is an old timey corner donut shop with rows of donuts, muffins and asst. other goodies in every surrounding window. You walk around and window shop or look at menu for donuts and order from small... More

Absolutely the best donuts & pastries I have ever had! They are open 24 hours a day and more varieties than I have ever seen! No inside seating, just walk around the building, choose your favorite, order at the window and take home. This is a donut experience you don't want to miss if in the area! Actually worth a... More
