20/10!!! Amazing service. ON POINT goodies. The donuts were thoroughly enjoyed by my symptomatic celiac daughter and myself. Very mildly sweet donuts. Super yummy. Not sugary at all. Didn’t get the icks. She said they were PERFECTION. The staff was so so warm and kind. Thank you for making my celiac babygirl smile

The staff was super nice and patient with me asking a bunch of questions. GF items marked clearly on the menu and ALL DONUTS ARE GLUTEN FREE. I have had GF donuts at other places over the years but today was the first time I’ve had a jelly donut (which was delicious) since I was diagnosed celiac *fifteen years ago*. I also got a salad that was fantastic. Definitely coming back!!

Gluten-free FRIED donuts in a dedicated fryer and in 7 rotating flavors. Manager was super knowledgeable even mentioning Celiac sage when discussing their protocols. They also have fantastic salads and gf wraps (just ask for the wraps they don’t list it on the menu).

I’m losing my mind at how delicious these donuts are. Absolutely unreal. If there’s one place you go it needs to be this one. I got diagnosed with celiac 5-6 years ago and I haven’t had anything that even comes close.

We loved this place! This is a new location for an established business in Hoboken, NJ. I looked up the reviews for the Hoboken store and based on that and my phone conversation with someone at the Santa Monica location, I felt comfortable ordering their GF donuts (we had them twice while we were in town). They were great and I did not react. Our favorites were the blood orange and the fairy bread. My husband also had the ginger turmeric lemonade and loved it. If we'd been in town longer I would have tried some of the other GF items on the menu.

The staff was all wonderful, and they were so helpful when we were having trouble placing an order through the app. We really wanted to order that way because all orders through their app get delivered via Coco robots! The whole experience was positive and fun and they were incredibly focused on customer service. I really hope this new location thrives. I can't wait to visit again next time I'm in town.
