The best donuts around. I don't have a favorite, the cinnamon butter log is great especially if you heat it, as is the cinnamon roll, both are larger than a plate. Devils food with nuts, mmm, with coconut not bad either, muffins are oversized as are the donuts. Lots of frosting used. They have a Texas sized donut that can... More

A crazy little donut stand on Escondido Ave. It is open 24/7 and usually, a number of Escondido's finest are there so it is super safe :-). The donuts are great and always fresh. I am not a huge fan of the apple fritters, too much cinnamon for my taste. Give Peterson's a try.

The doughnuts are insane anything you get your going to love. My favorites are the Maple bars, Peterson pillows, and Texas doughnuts need to order 24 hours in advance. Open 24 hours a day only closed around Christmas thru the new year.

I have not found a place with a better donut. Before the airlines would restrict luggage capacity, I would always being a dozen or two home. I often go there straight from the airport. If you like donuts, you will LOVE this place.

Excellent local business with delicious doughnuts. Their chocolate is really chocolate, not brown icing. Highly recommend for a family treat!!

Peterson's has been around forever and is known far and wide, and loved by many generations. Though its popularity causes lines, they move fast and the staff is always happy, patient and helpful. The selection is endless from donuts to tasty pastries.

I had heard mixed things about Peterson' s. When my favorite shop in Santee changed and wasn't good anymore I wanted to find another shop with a wow factor. This is the place. Yes the donuts are at least twice the typical size! The maple bar is a favorite in my house. They look a little odd, but when you... More
