Update: as of April 2024 they share oil between the GF and regular donuts. No longer safe for celiacs.

———— Great GF donuts! They had vanilla, chocolate, and coconut when we went.

All prepared in a separate fryer and kept away from the gluten ingredients.

Delicious donuts! My boyfriend has celiac and we had a great experience. The person who served us was very careful about changing their gloves (without us even having to ask!) and they store the GF donuts in a separate area to avoid cross contact! There were only 2 GF flavors when we went (more were listed on their website). My bf didn't love how messy the chocolate option was, (it was chocolate dipped not chocolate cake) but said he'd like to go back to try their plain donut!

they offer gf donuts that are incredible!! best gf donuts i’ve ever had!!!! they take as many precautions as they can to make them celiac safe (dedicated fryer, store them separately, make them first thing in the morning before the gluten donuts, etc). they are not a dedicated facility so it’s up to your comfort level but i felt completely fine after and staff was knowledgeable!
