Sublime Doughnuts is well known for their wide variety of delectable doughnuts, but don’t miss the equally irresistible ice cream! The temperatures are rising, and there’s always a good reason for an ice-cream cone. A few of the available flavors include cinnamon toast crunch, crème brûlée, peach Riesling and classic vanilla bean.
To really take things up a notch, check out the burger menu—no, not that kind of burger! Sublime’s “burgers” are actually doughnut-and-ice cream sandwiches. Does it get any better?
