On a first visit last month, thoroughly impressed with the donuts, less impressed by the savory food. Good (traditional) texture on the bagels, made in-house, which are boiled then baked. Great selection of donut types, flavors, and styles-- my biggest problem was resisting being greedy. The least impressive doughnut was the chocolate traditional cake style, a little too dry. The vegan donuts seemed to have similar bases. The most unusual I tried was a pistachio topped, cherry-filled number. Yum. I enjoyed the poppy-seed bagel that contained my brisket sandwich, but the filling was uncomfortably dry and non-seasoned. It was begging for sauce or condiment. Nice, friendly staff, cool location and decor. There's plentiful street parking, a local crowd, and great pastries.

Did you know Nomad got their name from being the only fresh, creative, mood lifting donuts for miles and miles in the 1800’s when all the oceans dried out and the only thing left to do was bake for survival? Just kidding. But I wouldn’t be surprised if their donut recipes were smuggled across whichever border has the best drugs (don’t answer that) and mixed discretely into the donuts we know and love today. Maybe it’s happenstance, but I never fail to be in a good mood when I visit this place. Cheers to their new location, it really speaks to the quality and attention 👏🏽 you 👏🏽 deserve 👏🏽👸🏼 the cold brew is phenom, and topped with a jelly filled donut (which was surprisingly easy to pop through that straw for your insta, just FYI ) really made my Friday!

Wow - great bagels and donuts! Picked up a dozen of each for the weekend - don't judge me! Bagels were fantastic - chewy, fresh, perfect toasted with cream cheese or in a breakfast sandwich! Donuts were inventive and delicious. The mango one was superb! Blueberry filled was messy and gooey, and all over the place....was in heaven. Seriously.....GO HERE NOW!
