ATLANTA - Here's what you may have missed on today's Good Day Atlanta for Aug. 25. 2023.
Atlanta's Sublime Doughnuts: From technology to fashion, many things have evolved over the past 15 years. But entrepreneur Kamal Grant says two aspects of life haven’t changed a bit: "Atlanta still loves doughnuts, and we still love Atlanta."
Grant, of course, is the founder and creative director of Sublime Doughnuts, which is celebrating 15 very sweet years of serving up decadent doughnuts to metro Atlanta. Grant opened the first Sublime location — on 10th Street near Georgia Tech — back in 2008, after spending time in the Navy and studying at the Culinary Institute of America.
"I’ve always been into pastries and doughnuts … so it was just about creating my own thing," says Grant of his "Sublime" inspiration. "Before 2008, doughnuts were just chocolate and glazed, chocolate and glazed."
Anyone who’s ever visited Sublime Doughnuts at any of its locations knows that’s not the case anymore. Local favorites include the Orange Dream Star, Fresh Strawberries N Cream, Smores, and the iconic A-Town Cream. Those and others have gained Sublime a reputation of excellence, and the company has appeared on countless "best-of" lists over the past decade-and-a-half.
So, who’s ready to celebrate Sublime’s milestone 15th anniversary with a tasty treat? The original shop is located at 535 10th Street Northwest and the North Druid Hills location is at 2566 Briarcliff Road Northeast, Suite 107 — both are open 24 hours. To check out the menu, click here.
