I don't recommend donuts to anyone, but---if you must have one--this is the place! Always a line! Escondido landmark!

This is the most talked about donut place in the city and I've finally got around to stopping by. Its in a cute little location that would downplay how GREAT the donuts are(slightly pricier I might add) a must visit.

Worth the wait time n line. Delicious donuts in both texture and flavor. They have all the classics plus specialities like the bacon maple bar, cherry fritter, and butter log.

Peterson's is a local favorite so naturally I wanted to try it out. Unfortunately it did not live up the hype. I tried both the maple bacon bar and a strawberry pillow (essentially a square cronut) and both were way to sweet for my taste. A plus for this business is that they open 24 hours, but I'm not likely to return

Peterson's is legendary in Escondido! They have the largest donuts that you have ever seen, and a great variety too. Be prepared to stand in line at this very popular place!

Honestly, it's more hype. Unless you can get one specialty or cake type, the old fashioned are more greasy than tasty. Sorry but the truth

I like to call this place Donut Town! Open 24 hours a day...which makes it amazing and dangerous for me. Always fresh donuts and a nice selection. Cash only, so be prepared for that.

This 24-hour donut corner is probably hands down the best in Escondido, or San Diego county for that matter. They have a wide variety of donuts that seem to always be fresh. The prices are incredible cheap, but be sure to bring cash because the card service fees will cost you.

Amazing old fashioned donuts, not I mention, humongous! I really loved the zebra donut and how fresh and moist they all tasted! You can't beat a locally owned, family run business!

Great family owned and operated donut shop for over +25 years. Muffins and cupcake are just fad food but donut have the staying power. Nothing better than the maple bacon bar with a nice fresh cup of coffee. Place is open 24 hours so it great for a 2AM snack on the way back from an evening out with friends.

Peterson's! Everyone who lives in and around Escondido knows it's name. 24 hour delicious donut service is how they roll. Every donut I've tried there has been awesome from a traditional old fashioned glazed donut to the new "cronut" fad.

These donuts are legendary. I have never been here when there wasn't a line. As big as these donuts are (huge) they somehow don't sacrifice taste. Great place to go in the middle of the night with your buddies.

One of my favorite late night haunts! They are open 24 hours and making fresh donuts all the time. They have a huge selection and even make HUGE texas donuts by special order in pound increments. My favorite are the buttermilk bars and glazed cake donuts.

Peterson's Donut Corner is an old-time donut shop with an abundance of baked variety and nostalgia to boot. Select from any type of donut your heart desires, add a bottle of cold creamy milk, and transport yourself to simpler times. It's open 24 hours a day, and the line will be down the street even at 10:30 at night...like it is right now.

This corner donut shop is epic! Step back into the 1960’s. Ask for whatever is still warm – You WON’T be disappointed. My favorites include the butter log, glazed old fashioned buttermilk bar, and massive apple fritter!
