Eva’s Original Chimneys mixes two of America’s most popular desserts; doughnuts and ice cream. Their specialty, Chimneys, are freshly baked Hungarian pastries with a crunchy outside and a soft inside. Eva’s offers not only a satisfying treat but also a visual experience, as the Chimney Cakes are baked using a traditional-style, open rotisserie grill, just like on the streets of Budapest. Another bonus – the pastries are made using organic ingredients and a vegan base. Try an Original Chimney Cone (aka ‘Doughnut Cone’) filled with real-cream soft-serve ice cream for $8.
