    Dense but delicious. Haven't had a donut that isn't cake like though. Had four options. Got the chocolate coconut and it was a great treat. Would definitely come back!

    So good! Got half dozen gf donuts! Chocolate sea salt, maple, strawberry, old fashioned, cinnamon, glazed! They're homemade Maine potato donuts, not potato flour, mashed potato! They have non gf sweet potato too. So yummy!!

    The GF chocolate sea salt donut is sooo good! they generally have one other flavor, but it's not many nor often. This is NOT a GF environment, they make many glutenous donuts a day! I've been sick on several occasions, due to cross contamination.

    Good donuts and friendly staff. Three gluten free options when we visited. The cinnamon sugar donut was great. Kind of a novelty stop when walking around town

    The only celiac friendly donut in town I know of. I was in the shop and overheard someone order a dozen donuts. They said throw a few GF into the box as well because someone at the office was gluten free. The server insisted they go into a separate bag just in case that person was celiac. 'Nuf said!

    If you like heavy, deep fried donuts, they offer a couple choices made with potato flour. The rest are all a combo of wheat & potato flour. All I could taste was a "deep fried" flavor. $2.70 for a 'GF' donut

    cinnamon donut was amazing. chocolate salted a little too salty and rich for me, but I would drive hours for another cinnamon donut. wow.

    Amazing donuts, seriously. The dark chocolate sea salt is basically heaven. If you're really sensitive though, be wary: the shop is quite cloudy (like dense flour-y bakery air, you know?) because they make thousands of glutenous donuts every day! While I have thoroughly enjoyed the donuts I've had on 4-5 different occasions, I had varying reactions to most. Three stars based on gluten-free-friendliness, a million stars based on the holiest of donuts.

    Amazing donuts, period. Way better than regular donuts and to be able to enjoy them gf is a treat. They usually have 3 or so gluten free flavors. The coconut and dark chocolate sea salt are to die for.

    Dedicated fryers, separate area where gf donuts are displayed so no crumb droppage from the other non-gf donuts. Maybe the best donut I've ever had, even before going gluten-free!
