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

Started my day this morning about 1030am with a visit to Peterson's. My step-daughter's husband has lived in the area all his life, and he highly recommended this place. He said it's been here as long as he can remember, and there's usually a line of people waiting to get donuts. I didn't believe him about the line, especially late... More

Selection, freshness and heritage. If you have a sweet morning craving, this place rocks. Highly recommended if in the Escondido/San Marcos area.

On your way to the Safari Park...stop by here for a great treat. Need a special gift? You can order a 3 lb or 6 lb apple fritter. They also take orders for other special treats. Want a quick breakfast? This is the place.Outdoor seating is limited. There are no bathrooms. It's a walk-up.

After 15+ years of living in North County I finally went to Peterson's. I wish I would have waited another 15 though because now that I have had it I won't be able to stop. I think they must have drugs in the frosting. Or maybe its just MSG. Either way I am now officially addicted. I wish they had... More

I have traveled around the world and lived all over the country, and nothing compares to these awesome donuts. Word of advise, walk around the corner to see what is cooling on the rack for the freshest donuts ever.
