One of the hottest neighborhoods in Las Vegas gains a ice cream and doughnut shop opening this summer.
Yonutz plans to open its first location outside of Florida in Centennial center with smash doughnuts — filled with ice cream sandwiched together on a waffle maker — and doughnut-topped milkshakes. The dessert shop plans to open at 5765 Centennial Center Blvd., Suite 180 near Nothing Bundt Cakes and Cafe Rio Mexican Grill in late July.
Founder and CEO Tony Bahu tapped local entrepreneur Jordan Leach to open the location. Bahu teamed up with Shark Tank entrepreneur Kevin Harrington to expand Yonutz nationwide.
In Las Vegas, Yonutz plans to open a 1,500-square-foot space, the first of several planned in the city. The dessert shop offers smashed up flavors such as a Nutella crunch smash doughnut filled with cookie dough ice cream that’s smashed and hot-pressed, then topped with Oreos, cereal crunch, and Nutella drizzle; the unicorn smash doughnut, stuffed with candy ice cream, smashed, hot-pressed, and topped with cotton candy bites and unicorn glitter; and a birthday cake smash milkshake with Oreos and topped with a mini doughnut. Most of the smash doughnuts start at $8.95.
Yonutz also serves regular doughnuts that come topped with M&Ms, salted caramel Biscoff, pink Pebbles cereal, and just simple glazed as well as stuffed with raspberry jelly, Boston cream, apple pie, and more. Vegan and gluten-free options also make the menu, along with mini doughnuts and doughnut decorating kits.
The dessert shop also serves ice cream flavors such as S’mores with Chips Ahoy cookies, graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate drizzle and a mini doughnut; strawberry Nesquick with Lucky Charms; French toast with Cinnamon French Toast, sprinkles, a mini doughnut, and maple drizzle; and Berry Bliss with mixed berries and Rice Krispies.
A secret menu features milkshakes with Kinder Bueno bars, a birthday cake rendition with Bang Energy drink, a cotton candy version, and more in the $11.95 range.
Yonutz plan to serve from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday with an eye toward Southern Utah next.
