I always treat my guests to Peterson's. Simply delish! The donuts are quite large and oh so fresh. My favorites are the lemon jellies and the "old fashioned".

Texas size donuts for family desserts. This is the best place in San Diego. Worth the trip if you have to drive.

The donuts are REALLY big. And the frosting...not for the faint-of-heart, these donuts will satisfy most donut lovers. Which is why you'll find a line, almost at any time, day or night!

The only bad thing about this place is the lines. The lines exist, however, because of the great donuts! They are worhth the wait though.

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!
