Peter Pan is a doughnut shop that’s been around since the 1950s, and looks like it hasn’t been updated since opening. When you have magical baking powers like they do, you don’t need to renovate. Starting at 4:30am on weekdays and 5am on weekends, people line up to get their hands on their delicious circles of fried dough. Take them home, bring them to an interview to increase your chances of being hired, or sit down at the counter and order them with some eggs or coffee. They also have breakfast sandwiches, bagels, and milkshakes.
