America's Best Doughnuts
Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop; Brooklyn, NY
A retro bakeshop with swivel stools, Peter Pan serves coffee and a vast array of handmade doughnuts, from sour cream to coconut cream. In summer, customers can design an ice cream sandwich with doughnut halves in place of the traditional cookies. One favorite combo: a red velvet doughnut with strawberry ice cream. 727 Manhattan Avenue.
