They advertise GF donuts, which are made with wheat flour, so clearly not gluten free. The main lady will flat out lie to you and tell you they are gluten free but will not divulge any other information and plays the no English card when asked further questions. Many people have been made sick enough they had to go to the hospital. Please steer clear and head to other verified safe donut joints.

We have submitted their donuts for professional gluten testing, by Bia Diagnostics (recommended by Gluten Free Watchdog). The results are clear and obvious. The report from Bia explains that 84ppm is the max of their testing range, and states this indicates they are made with regular wheat flour.

I went in because I was told the doughnuts were gluten free. When I asked about them I didn’t feel comfortable with the language barrier and didn’t get anything.

None of their food is gluten free. The items were sent to a lab to settle the controversy since they advertise as gf but many people have gotten sick. The lab results showed all the bakes good are made with regular gluten filled flour. This is false advertising and they need to remove anything that says gf.

Owners didn't understand what gluten was and were allowing folks to believe they were GF when they weren't. They've since taken down their GF signs, but many believe it's still GF. Have had negative reactions to their donuts when they were advertised as GF.

NOT GLUTEN FREE! I previously gave this 5 stars, but sadly can no longer do so. The donuts are definitely not gluten free anymore, and when you try to ask if they are, you get a really shifty/unconvincing answer. I have since heard from someone who had testing done by Bia Diagnostics (company used by Gluten Free Watchdog), and the results came back with a really high gluten content.

Other gluten free bakers in the community have tried educating the owners about gluten and the seriousness of someone with celiac eating them, but they still haven’t stopped trying to claim that they’re GF.

They are delicious donuts, but only if you can eat gluten.

Not gluten free. Please see picture of someone who sent the donuts into a lab with the results showing that they contain wheat. The business is not honest and will say “they are safe for you” when asked if gluten free. So many people have been hospitalized from eating here. Please do not risk it.

I have eaten here often and I am a two gene celiac, and have never been cross contaminated or gotten sick after eating here. They make the best doughnuts and they actually taste like gluten full doughnuts. The flavor is the best I’ve ever tasted. When my celiac children come to town they have to eat here. I bring their doughnuts to my children as gifts!

Awesome gluten free pastries! Our family is celiac and gluten sensitive, depending on the members. We moved away from Colorado Springs years ago and enjoy visiting just so we can frequent this establishment. My wife and I enjoyed a donut yesterday and had no adverse reactions 24 hours later. We definitely would have known if any gluten was present. I think some of the low ratings may possibly be from folks overindulging (maybe???). I get it. I haven’t had any doughnuts for years and then want two instead of one. They are super yummy. Better than regular doughnuts in my memory. But have more than one at a time and you won’t feel good-your body isn’t used to it.

I can not believe the amount of “celiacs” on this page claiming this place to be safe. We have tested their donuts several times and it tests so high that I just really am beginning to think that either people are misdiagnosed or just not showing outward symptoms. This place has made many true diagnosed celiacs extremely sick and even several have been hospitalized. This place should be more open about speaking about ingredients to protect the community but they do not and refuse to. This may prompt me to subpoena the information and ultimately lead into an investigation in the near future if our community members continue to get sick at their refusal of the Food Protection Act.

Advertised as gluten free but my husband got so sick that he had to go to the emergency room. The first time we weren't certain that the donuts made him sick so we tried it again months later and the same thing happened. Many others have had the same experience. Good food? Sure. Gluten free? Absolutely not!

They offer some gluten products, but they are predominately GF. They will use separate utensils for the GF and gluten foods.

The quality is better than most gluten places I have eaten at before becoming allergic. They give a good amount for the price.

This is the best donut shop in Colorado Springs. I have never had a reaction to their food, but to those that have and, rightfully so, complained should remember that this shop is new and has debts.

Their donuts are definitely NOT gluten free and you can never get a straight answer about ingredients. We've contacted the health department about how they're knowingly harming people, but the health dept says there's nothing they can do about it. What?! That's crazy.

If you ask whether their too-good-to-be-true donuts are REALLY gluten free, their answers are evasive. “Maybe not good for you,” is what she told me yesterday. However, no one I know, even fellow celiacs, have gotten sick from the donuts. It’s perplexing. They must use some kind of Voodoo magic. Yesterday, I felt nauseous after eating half of a donut, but that’s not a typical gluten reaction for me, and it was just as likely the excess fat and sugar that was the culprit. Either way, I am highly suspicious of the place and I would not recommend them simply because I really can’t trust the claim that their donuts are safe.

I don’t trust this place as far as I could throw it. There is no way these donuts are gluten free. They may have been at one time, but they most certainly are not now. This place came highly recommended by friends and family who are new to gluten free diets and celiac disease, but do admit to cheating. My celiac daughter was sick very soon after eating here and spent the day in agony. Please avoid if you have celiac disease.

I last ate here over a year and a half ago. Aside from a sauce the dinner dishes were all gf and the plain donuts and donut holes were gluten free but not the filled donuts. She wouldn’t guarantee gf since she did not have testing done. However the owner is celiac. I had a great experience several times without reaction. I was going to go back more recently but was concerned about the recent reviews and am curious to know what has changed because when I was there it was so good and I am so sensitive but had no reaction
