Nomad Donuts


For the first time, Nomad Donuts invites all to view its future location at the corner of University Avenue and Illinois Street in North Park and enjoy donuts, drinks, live music and more while supporting a good cause on Tuesday, Dec. 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. This free-to-attend evening partners with local non-profit David’s Harp Foundation, which empowers at-risk and homeless youth to achieve academic success through music education, sound engineering and multimedia production.


Throughout the evening guests can purchase donuts at just $2 each including the purple-hued ube taro donut, coffee maple, haupia custard-filled, jam-filled and a special cotton candy-topped donut in collaboration with Get Fluffed Up. San Diegans can peruse the 3,100-square foot space while viewing early floor plans for the new shop, sipping craft beer pours from Fall Brewing, participating in a raffle, mixing and mingling with neighbors and listening to live music by the David’s Harp Foundation. More than half the night’s earnings will benefit the non-profit.


Nomad Donuts second location will be an expanded and evolved version of its original 670-square foot shop on 30th Street near Normal Heights. Upon its expected Spring 2017 opening, fans will be able to enjoy Nomad’s eclectic donuts and coffee alongside new additions like house-made Montreal style bagels, sandwiches and a pop-up savory and sweet bakery section. Nomad Donuts’ second location will offer indoor and outdoor seating and will stay open all day.

About Nomad Donuts: Launched in November 2014, Nomad Donuts is a San Diego gourmet donut shop serving eclectic and artisanal donuts, coffee and more at its location near North Park, Normal Heights and University Heights – with a second location opening in North Park in Spring 2017. Executive Chef Kristianna Zabala, former winner of Cooking Channel’s Sugar Showdown, handcrafts every donut using small batch ingredients from farmers’ markets, produce from community retailers and cage free, organic eggs – and has led the shop to being named one of the top donut shops in the nation by The New York Post. Nomad Donuts changed its menu daily and can often be found collaborating with local craft brewers on exclusive donut and beer pairings. For details, follow @NomadDonuts on Instagram or visit
