The Ringo Sundae Wins Best Sundae in Hampton Roads

Ringo Sundae by Doumar'sThis month, a panel of taste testers drove across Norfolk and Virginia Beach to discover the best sundae in Hampton Roads. With a score of 95 points (15 points higher than the runner-up), Doumar’s Ringo Sundae was the grand winner.

The Ringo has been a longtime favorite for many of the historic diner’s most loyal customers. A blend of homemade Maola vanilla ice cream and crushed waffle cones, topped with hot fudge and a big red cherry, the Ringo is always sure to be a real crowd pleaser. At only $3.40, it’s also a delicious dessert that’s easy on your wallet. As one panelist commented: “Sometimes you pay for the experience; a sundae at Doumar’s is an old world experience. A treasure of Hampton Roads!”
