So you’ve found yourself in search for the sweetest treats around, or maybe even the most savory: donuts. Lucky for you, San Diego has a plethora of establishments catered to donut lovers like yourself. We’ve found some of the most visited, unique, and innovative donut shops in San Diego for you to explore the next time you’re craving a pastry.

Nomad Donuts

Bringing flavors not previously imagined to a sugary donut, Nomad Donuts brings this pastry out of its comfort zone. Brad Keiller, the owner, decided to open shop as a way to exhibit the fresh and local flavors San Diego has to offer. Whether that be from farmer’s markets or local growers, Kristianna Zabala, executive pastry chef, then takes these flavors and incorporates them in unconventional ways that keep customers trying new combinations with a daily changing menu.

Savory and unique flavor combinations include honeydew mint prosciutto, zucchini chocolate chip, cherry chili lime, and even more that you might not find at your average donut shop. In addition to the exotic tastes of these donuts, Nomad Donuts incorporates a variety of flavorful vegan options as well.

Beyond the allure of these one-of-a-kind donuts, the ambiance of the shop provides a trendy atmosphere for guests to congregate and enjoy their pastries. To accompany their donuts, the drink menu has an extensive selection of coffee along with other donut-accompanying favorites. 

Nestled between Madison Ave & Monroe Ave University Heights, Nomad Donuts is open from 6am to 4pm weekdays (with the exception of Tuesdays) and from 8am to 2pm on weekends.
