Nomad Donuts isn’t the kind of donut shop where you go to get a dozen plain glazed donuts, although you could, but that just feels like a wasted opportunity. This North Park shop specializes in unusual donut flavors, like blueberry lavender, Irish coffee car bomb, and ube taro. If you aren’t feeling a sugar rush first thing in the morning, try one of their Montreal-style bagels instead.
