Local Favorites: Tonalli's Donuts & Ice Cream

by Cameron

It's been a little while since we've shared with you one of our favorite local spots, so I thought I'd get us started again with an old favorite - Tonalli's Donuts & Cream. This is the perfect spot to fuel up on ice cream or donuts (or ice cream AND donuts if you're hungry enough to try a donut sunday) before doing some fabric shopping.

Tonalli's is a real neighborhood joint. The lines are short, the donuts are fresh, and the ice cream flavors are traditional - and refreshingly free of meat products. There are no bells and whistles here, just sprinkles and cherries on top.

I like the wide selection of cone options - summer demands a soggy, drippy cake cone of coffee ice cream. I was also excited to learn that kid scoops are not just for kids because sometimes you just need a little pick me up, not a bowl full of weigh-me-down (although sometimes you need that, too).

Tonalli's is located at 28th and Alberta, a lovely five minute walk from Bolt. They're open from 7am-12am, so you're covered for breakfast, desert, and late-night munching.
