Grill donuts



Throw some donuts on the barbecue for a delicious summer treat.

Grilled donuts a la mode.

Let's break this down.

First: donuts. Soft, fresh bakery glazed donuts grilled until warm and slightly toasty. Grilled until that delicate crispy glaze just starts to warm and glisten.

Then: the warm donuts are topped with robust scoops of rich vanilla ice cream. Pick your favorite vanilla ice cream. Just make sure there is lots of it.

Finally: do you see those little dark brown bits gracing the top of the ice cream? Ground vanilla beans. Or otherwise known as what heaven must be made of. Totally optional but absolutely divine. The end.
