I've been getting donuts from Peterson's since high school, a few years back. My favorite is chocolate cake donut with coconut frosting. Awesome!

The line waiting to order donuts is an indication of how good they are, but be prepared, they are large. They are a great value and there are always fresh. Not sure what to get, just ask for suggestions from those in line. Everyone has their favorite for a variety of reasons - and is is fun finding out what... More

I rarely eat donuts, but when I do, I go to Peterson's. Well, it is like barely a mile from my house so it's easy in and easy out! I once took a trip to Peterson's because I had been craving a donut for WEEKS without having my craving satisfied. This is always a bad idea because when you let... More

If you don't mind standing in a line waiting to buy your donuts this is the place for you! They are pretty fast helping customers so the wait in line isn't always that bad - but I'm talking weekends. There is outdoor seating but....we usually grab and go - home. Parking is adequate but tough when they are crowded. This... More

When you give in to your craving, go here, it will be worth it! Great variety, size, price and that special something that makes them taste BETTER than any other donuts, ever!! Usually has a line, but service is fast and friendly. Outdoor seating.

The donuts here are big, that's for sure. The quality is average. After a certain size, it seems more like bread and less like a donut. Sometimes the frosting can be put on so incredibly thick that it's just too much and I've actually scraped some off (a messy proposition) ... and this coming from someone who loves icing! The...

I couldn't decide which ones I would buy because they all looked so yummy. There are a lot to choose from. They also have a feature donut everyday. Me and my friend tried 4 different donuts and I was not disappointed at all. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

Donuts are huge, lots of icing, with several flavor choices. Muffins and cinnamon rolls also available. Window with trays faces out to tempt. Always has a line at any time of the day. Prices good. Coffee good. Own parking lot. Outside seating available. Personally, a little too sweet for me.

Thank SJR55
