Our Story

We were voted best donuts in Tampa Bay by the Tampa Bay Times!

Nicola’s Donuts opened in 1982 as a small, family-owned business. As the years sprinkled on, Nicola’s has become a Tampa landmark by offering delicious, quality donuts made fresh by hand each day.

Today, Nicola’s Donuts is owned by Diane Rosario, a Tampa local who is stirring up delicious, new recipes and enriching the connection to the community.

Diane is a former elementary school teacher with a sweet tooth and a passion for baking. In the classroom, Diane’s students celebrated achievements with cookies, cupcakes and other treats Diane scrumptiously baked up for them. Diane’s love for baking began as a young child when her mother began to make and sell wedding cakes for friends and family, while her father served up his famous cookies at local events.

Nicola’s Donuts operates on the vision of giving back to the community. We donate to charities, area schools, and our dedicated team volunteers work within the community.

Remember to awaken your taste buds again at Tampa’s hidden gem… The spot for great donuts is only one, Nicola’s Donuts! We look forward to serving you and getting to know you!
