No Dunkin Donuts
Although I know there is at least one bakery/shop where "donuts" and an attempt at bagels can be had, there doesn't seem to be a "Dunkin Donut" shop anywhere in Columbia. Did I miss it? Are there comparable places like it some where?
Dixie Cream Donuts, off of Nifong (same strip mall as Taquería El Rodeo) is the closest. It's 24 hours now, and the doughnuts are fantastic; unfortunately, the location is not central and the parking lot can be a pain to negotiate. A 24-hour donut shop with a drive-thru, close to the campuses, would be a license to print money.
