Nicola’s Donuts

Opening way back in 1982, Nicola’s has always been a family-owned small business. Nicola’s Donuts is a delicious option with tons of variety. Its doughnuts are so tasty they’ve earned the bakery the title of Best Donuts In Tampa Bay by Creative Loafing Yelp and The Tampa Bay Times. Like many doughnut shops, Nicola’s Donuts makes its doughnuts fresh daily and is open until sellout.

Nicola’s Donuts has an expansive doughnut menu including classic cake, yeast, filled, and vegan options. Some of its most interesting flavors include the hibiscus iced vanilla cake vegan doughnut, the frosted animal cracker fancy raised doughnut, the guava classic filled doughnut, the fried oreo fancy raised doughnut, and the croissant fancy raised doughnut. There’s truly something for everyone at this doughnut shop.

The recommendation is to place an order ahead of time (a day in advance) to avoid missing out on doughnuts due to a sellout.

Cost: A dozen doughnuts from $10 to $23
