The prestigious Zagat Guide’s prizes for the city’s best eateries for 2017 have just been announced and one of the winners is a Greenpoint institution: Peter Pan Donut & Pastry shop (727 Manhattan Ave.) was named as the city’s premiere location for donuts. Peter Pan received a 4.5 for food, a 3.7 for decor and a 4.1 for service. The runner up, Orwasher’s Bakery, in the East 70’s in Manhattan got the same scores for food and service as Peter Pan, but scored lower on Decor. Peter Pan’s unique decor has not changed much in generations and the timeless quality to the place is one of its many attractions.
The 4.1 for service is also well deserved. A team of hard working Polish girls run their feet off trying to keep up with the shop’s huge lines that often stretch out the door. These hard working women truly earn their money and deserve the shout out for their efforts Zagat gave them.
