“Best glazed donuts in town...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

Cheaper by the dozen but always tempted to eat them all while they are deliciously fresh! This time we decided to freeze half and that worked out really well. Within a week we thawed them at room temperature and they were still great. Commercial donuts all taste mass produced these days so if you want authentic freshly made, you can't beat Nicola's. They have 2 shops - Busch for pickup only and north Dale Mabry with a few tables. Call the night before for large orders.

“Best donuts in Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

I have not been in a while.....

But every time I go they deliver a consistently delicious donut. The donuts have excellent flavor and texture.

They absolutely sell out early.

Better than dunkin donuts for sure.

“Oh Yeah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2010

Like donuts? Oh yeah, these are better than good. In fact, I'd go so far as to say they are the best darned donuts I've ever had. They don't skimp on the toppings and even the cake donuts are moist & tasty. Their chocolate covered donuts are covered thick, yummy fudgy chocolate. Gotta try them!
