Ryan and Geri-Martah O’Hara, founders of Big Spoon Creamery, and Jim and Amy Watkins, founders of Steel City Pops, were already friends when they decided to make the transition to business partners. And it’s all thanks to a love of fun food creations.

“We’ve been working on this concept for three plus years, and we’re so excited to finally be bringing it to fruition. It’s a very interactive experience where guests can choose the perfect flavor combination from our unique offerings of sugars and dipping sauces. Donuts are then cooked to order and served piping hot, so you can enjoy watching your donuts being made right in front of you.”

Ryan and Geri-Martha O’Hara, Co-Founders, Big Spoon Creamery

Sons Donuts will feature mini donuts cooked hot to order, along with a variety of unique sugar dustings and handcrafted dipping sauces. But that’s not all. The shop will also offer:

  • Locally-roasted coffee from Non-Fiction Coffee
  • Fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • A milk bar with house-made flavored milk shots

There are lots of donut shops around the Greater Birmingham Area. So what will make the donuts from Sons Donuts stand out from others around Birmingham?

“The Sons donut is golden brown and crispy on the outside, soft and airy on the inside.”

Geri-Martha, Co-Founder, Sons Donuts

As delectable as the ice cream is from Big Spoon Creamery and the popsicles are from Steel City Pops, there’s no doubt the donuts from Sons Donuts will have you saying donut mind if I do.
