so-so donuts - Edit

I tried 6 vegan donuts and I don't understand what all the fuss is about. They all lacked flavor and were just plain bland. Staff were very friendly though.

Warning, sugar is probably not vegan. Their menu says "refined" sugar is used in all vegan products.

Pros: friendly staff

Cons: bland tastes , street parking difficult, "refined sugar" (not vegan?)

Best Donuts in SD - Edit

I've been here many times. Consistently the best vegan donuts in SD! So many unbelievably interesting flavor combinations, like "The Lebowski White Russian". I especially LOVE the donut holes too (4 for $1...great deal). The great thing about Nomad is they don't just have a couple of vegan flavors, I usually see 8 or more each time! But they do sell out quickly so it's worth calling to check if you are craving a particular flavor that you saw them post on their Instagtam (they always post the flavors on IG a day in advance). The donuts are not cheap (most cost $3 each), but they are large and very well made...truly artisanal donuts HaHa. Enjoy!

Pros: Rare Vegan Yeast-Raised Donuts, Lots of unique vegan flavors, Will let you sample the icing

Cons: Close early, Hipster vibe , Wish the whole shop was entirely vegan
