We caught up with owner James Lane to learn more about how he got started in the restaurant business and what makes this tasty shop stand out.
What is your background?
Lane didn’t plan to be a restaurateur. He grew up in Lexington, NC, and wanted to be a teacher, a career his two older sisters pursued. However, after three semesters at Wingate University in Charlotte, he decided teaching golf was where he belonged. He received certification as a golf pro and took a job at the former Baytree Golf Plantation in Little River. When he added an evening job at a Broadway at the Beach restaurant in Myrtle Beach, the owner there believed he could succeed in the restaurant industry. James now owns four different establishments in Brunswick County including Angelo’s Pizzeria and Bistro in Shallotte, Macie and Ethel’s Kitchen in Holden Beach, Maria’s Pizzeria, and Split Milk both located in Ocean Isle Beach.
What makes Spilt Milk Ice Cream and Donut Shop stand out from other shops?
Everything at Split Milk is made in-house from scratch. Trained bakers make the dough and trained workers mix the ingredients for the ice cream and coffee. When you come here, you’ll know the donuts are fresh and made daily. Our selections go beyond traditional glazed and sugar donuts; you’ll find Bavarian cream-filled Bismarck, strawberry fritter, praline, pistachio, and more!
Favorite Donut: Glazed. It’s light and delicious with our homemade glaze.
