Their GF donuts are amazing! They do fry them in the same oil as the regular donuts so if you are celiac or your intolerance is very sensitive I wouldn’t recommend.

They don’t sell anything that is GF. You can’t call something GF if you fry it in the same fryer as the regular donuts. It automatically makes it not GF.

Their gf donut is delicious - best I've tried in the city - and you can have them prepare with an awesome assortment of fillings and glazes, sort of like Subway for donuts. In this way, you get a lot of variety and choice about what's on the donut as opposed to "that one token gluten free item" but, yeah, I do feel that gut punch because the oil is used for gluten-full donuts. I've tried asking how fresh the oil is and requesting they begin using separate oil but I have not so far run into the owner with my concerns.

If you're gluten intolerant and willing to roll the dice on gluten-ish oil for a great donut served to order, The Donut Friend is your new best friend!

They say there is risk but I have not been "glutened" there. Best GF doughnuts from LA to SD. I always go when I am in the area.

Gluten free friendly, but not celiac safe. They use same fryer and same utensils to for gluten and non gluten free donuts.
