While I appreciate the effort and attempt to provide something for those that can’t handle gluten, I was very disappointed and will never go back. Their regular donuts are tiny, deep fried delights. They are served in a cone with toppings. The GF version is smaller than a traditional cake donut, baked, shipped from elsewhere, and the consistency and taste of a Twinkie. Even that one would have tasted better deep friend as well. Each topping is $1 extra making my donut $6. No, worth it at all. I make yummy donuts using Pamela’s pancake mix baked or fried.

Tastes pretty good, but it’s more like eating a piece of cake than a donut. There’s a variety of toppings, but they don’t put a lot on the donut itself. Gluten free donuts do get shipped from another location though.

While it was nice to have a reliable GF sweet treat while visiting the Sonoma Plaza, I must admit I was disappointed in the donut itself after reading the rave reviews. The GF donuts are essentially a donut-shaped cupcake/sponge cake. I’ve been spoiled by having fried mochi donuts in my home town which are incredible. Overall, though, I felt safe eating my Harvey’s GF donut. NOTE: Harvey’s is only open on weekends. Check the website before going or call to verify hours.

Best donuts ever! Harvey was so kind and took the time to discuss my wheat allergy. Donuts are made in a separate kitchen, almost all toppings are gluten free and they are AMAZING!! It’s a must visit.

Calling all Celiacs! If you’ve been missing that donut from days a past, check out Harvey’s. Both my wife and I have Celiac and just enjoyed a chocolate covered and half caramel half marshmallow donut that pretty much satisfied our craving for a donut. The owner, Harvey was there. He explained the entire safety protocols that went into making the donut which immediately put us at ease. He has his gluten free donuts completely protected from cross contamination. Dedicated cooking area, individually packaged. All topping except gram cracker are gluten free. So you can easily order the gluten free donut without worry.

Harvey’s came into my work for an event for the second time today and both times they have accommodated my celiac and made sure to have pre-prepared separate donuts for me. I spoke to Harvey today and he informed me that they have a separate area for the gluten-free donuts and a dedicated fryer. The donuts themselves are sweet, fluffy and fill me with nostalgia of the days when I could eat regular donuts ! They’re delicious and safe which is a huge deal for me, obviously. Thank you Harvey’s !!

Gluten free donuts are made off site at a different location and then brought in. They use different utensils to serve them as well. Donuts are very good on top of that.

This place is wonderful. They don’t have gluten-free mini donuts but they have regular gluten-free regular donuts.

First, let me get this off my chest. The lattes here are divine. I go here for the lattes. Haha!

Second, the texture of the donuts are wonderful! The donuts themselves are so good. The toppings add to the fun but I could just eat these guys plain. They have the consistency of a well crafted sponge cake or pound cake. Idk. I can’t tell anymore because I’ve been a celiac for over 10 years and you just forget. Either way, it’s really good.

My favorite combination of toppings are the raspberry jam and marshmallow fluff. The cinnamon sugar is also great. :D

The donuts are made separately in another facility to eliminate cross contamination. Thanks, Harvey!

This place just opened, the owner is very knowledgeable about gluten free. He said they make the gf donuts (which are bigger than the minis) in a separate fryer. Almost every topping is gf!
