Kamal Grant has his dough down -- his doughnuts ($1/each and $10/dozen) spring back into shape after each bite and taste like butter instead of fryer oil. Basic varieties abound, but Grant's innovative creations set this independent bakery apart. His take on a Boston cream doughnut is whimsically shaped into a proud "A" for Atlanta, filled with silky custard and dipped in premium Belgian Callebaut chocolate. But the best one we've eaten is simply a swoon-worthy yeast doughnut slathered in sticky dulce de leche -- it was gone two seconds after the first bite. If you're looking for an option other than a birthday cake, check out the Sublime happy birthday doughnut box for $20. It's worth it.
