A Sweet Send Off At Sublime Doughnuts In Atlanta

Sublime Doughnuts In Atlanta Georgia

I know it may seem strange to follow the previous post about spinning and weight loss with one about my favorite place to go for doughnuts, but hey, like most people I’m striving for balance and my balanced life has to include doughnuts. So … let me show you what I was doing this morning while the rest of you were having your oatmeal and fruit cups.

Within walking distance to my home in Atlanta, there is place that sells a sweet treat so mouth-watering that you’ll be planning your next visit while you’re still licking the crumbs of your last bite from your fingertips.

In the photo above you can see what I sampled this morning. I had a Caramel Apple Fritter which had been my number one until I tried something called a Chocolate Wildberry Fritter that I laughingly described to my friend Kimberly as a Chocolate ” Crackberry ” Fritter because it was so good I thought I might easily become addicted.

The Red Velvet Cake doughnut was tasty and sweet, but after polishing off the Caramel Apple Fritter and half of the Crackberry, I mean Chocolate Wildberry, all I could manage was a bite-size slice of the Red Velvet Cake doughnut and wrapped up the rest to share later with my daughter.

I was already living in the UK when Kamal Grant decided to put his creative culinary skills, education, and experience to use in a business of his own called Sublime Doughnuts and while his success is no surprise to those who flock to savor the fresh-all-day treats, you might be surprised to learn that he opened Sublime Doughnuts when he was only 28. You have to admire a man who leaves a good job in down economy and cashes in his 401K to go after a dream.

He’s had loads of well deserved awards and great reviews and I found that success hasn’t gone to his head as he graciously posed for pictures not once, but twice with me this morning. I was having a photo snapped with him when my friend Kimberly Krautter arrived and after she and I had a chance to eat doughnuts and catch up, we took a few more shots with Kamal to remember the day.

Kimberly and I were students in the Theatre Department at the University of Georgia in the 80s and had not seen each other since 1987. She’s been pretty busy following her own dreams and you can learn more about her by clicking on her name.

I’m in Marietta for a few last days packing my life into more bags than I arrived with when my plane landed in April. I’ve managed to accumulate quite a bit of stuff during my unexpected extended stay, but I just might have room for a few doughnuts for the plane if I can convince my daughter to stop on our way to the airport early next week. I think I can find a bit of room to carry them on the plane, but the real question might be will they last long enough to arrive?

  1. My mouth is watering…..those doughnuts look like nothing I’ve seen before and incredibly delicious. Glad you enjoyed some for all of us! Safe travels home!

  2. Thanks for the back story, very cool. Oh man, those doughnuts! So glad we don’t have anything like that near me, lol.

  3. Looking very fit there! Balance in all things, as you say, especially treats like doughnuts. Safe travels home.

  4. I’m in Columbus, GA, but my daughter goes to Tech. In fact, her residence hall this fall is only a couple of blocks away! I think when we move her in (a couple of weeks away) we’ll stop by Sublime Doughnuts. I’m planning it already!

  5. This is lovely. It was so much fun seeing you after all these years. You look great, and you still have the same wonderfully sunny spirit. Next time let’s have crumpets and clotted cream in Cornwall!

  6. I love doughnuts but real doughnuts, deep fried doughnuts, cause if I’m going to eat a doughnut, I don’t want it to be good for me at all.
