Peter Pan Bakery

With the G train running all the way to Church Avenue, it's very easy to get directly to Greenpoint, & close to the Nassau stop is the excellent Peter Pan Bakery (Manhattan Avenue between Meserole & Norman). This place has been open since 1951 & it's now my favourite donut store. Everything about it is just right: a perfectly preserved interior, a gaggle of elderly local ladies at a back counter, bustling, no-nonsense waitresses & a heavenly array of doughnuts (sour cream, jelly, apple crumb...). I'm not much of a donut eater, but this place could change things.
