This donut shop is the best anywhere, they have everything and more. I try to stop as often as i can and they are open 24 hours who else can say that? Very easy to find on the corner of 9th and Escondido Blvd, always a line for a reason but so worth the wait🌝

They are so good I dare not go very often, Highly addictive if you love donuts ! Located in the old section of Escondido on Escondido Bulavard. They have a walk up window and a drive up window.

Be prepared to wait in line, Peterson's Donuts always has a line, even late at night. They are open 24 hours so if you want a sweet delight, get it from them.

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
