Tom's Diner's A-Z: D is for Donuts

Welcome to Tom’s Diner’s A to Z of all things plant based. This week we bring you …the letter D
D is for…. Doughnuts!

Now we love a doughnut here at Tom’s. We once brought a grown man to tears with one- he’d been diagnosed with Coeliac Disease in the late 90’s, and hadn’t eaten a doughnut for over 2 decades until he visited Tom’s. We all got quite emotional. True story.
We have been working on our American-themed doughuts for quite a while as part of our Afternoon Tea offer, and are proud to unveil them right here, right now! They will be available exclusively at our Diner to provide our lovely customers with another touch of Americana indulgence to enjoy.

There will be three doughnut varieties to start with, including the New York cheesecake doughnut developed by our very own Jem, our fudgy chocolate doughnut, and the super tasty Wow Butter & jelly doughnut. Each are freshly prepared and lovingly crafted with a focus on indulgence, which connects to the growing range of American desserts that we are developing. Traditional American desserts can be sweet, creamy and calorie-laden, whereas ours are made with free from, fairly traded and health conscious (ish…) ingredients. Happy Dunkin’ X
