Delicious donuts! A nice variety of flavors. I loved the strawberry and chocolate but the cookies and cream was a little dry. I’m not sure why they were called gluten friendly because they were celiac safe and I had no issues.

I bought the boysenberry and coconut Carmel GF donuts. They were absolutely delicious!! When in town, I will definitely go back! The gal stated they are prepared in separate space and have a separate fryer.

Popped in for a sweet treat on a day date after seeing the good reviews here. We went in for A donut each. We walked out with SIX each - half gf and half full gluten. For the gluten free, I went with a blueberry lemon (x2), boysenberry, birthday cake (x2), and a brown butter something or other.

All of the donuts are perfectly cooked. Hands down the best GF donuts I’ve ever had! The edges are perfectly crispy. The insides are moist. They’re regular donut size too! They don’t look small like something from a play kitchen.

IMO they’re best a little warm. They was a little warm when we got them and had some there. I had some after we got them home and they were completely cool, and they all had a slight flavor to them that gave them away as GF. Idk how to describe it other than I usually only taste it when I have gf muffins. I have no idea what it actually is. I always just relate it to gf muffins.

The birthday cake was my favorite even though I’m team buttercream and it had a dab of whipped frosting on it. It was really good and only available for a limited time

Blueberry lemon was like a muffin too in the shape if a donut with some delicious glaze. The lemon flavor is just a slight hint. I like my lemon blueberry treats to be a bit brighter and less if a hint. If there was a sprinkle of lemon sugar on top to make sure the lemon pops, this would be everything to me. I will still order this one again! Also, the staff helping us said the lemon was light on these, and I still got 2.

Boysenberry was a nice treat! I really like boysenberry, and the flavor comes through really well with a slight bite. Yum!

The last one I got was that brown butter something donut. I wasn’t really feeling this donut, but the staff said it’s the most popular. Is it a well-cooked donut with prefect texture? Yes. It’s the best classic gf donut I’ve ever had and perfect if you’re looking for something classic to pair with a coffee. I’ll probably never order it again. That’s not my thing. I’d go as far to say it may be something offered daily, which gives it an unfair advantage in being most popular. It’s really, really good…for what it is. I wouldn’t turn one down if someone gave me one!

If you enjoy excellent customer service, pop in for that too! The staff was amazing!

Can’t say enough good things about this place! I had the vanilla (vegan/gf) and chocolate (gf). The chocolate glazed was the best donut that I’ve ever had. Warm, gooey, and crispy edges. My husband had a variety of gluten and enjoyed them all.

Dave the owner was so welcoming and made us our espresso drinks and chatted! My husband said it was the best espresso he has had. Informed us that they plan to ship their donuts soon! Eek!

Gluten free donuts are delicious! Bought the glazed, chocolate, boysenberry, and coffee cake donuts; chose 9 in total. Sold separately, our total was $40. ALL were fresh (some right out of the oven) and tasty and totally worth it! Best gf donuts we’ve had anywhere. Manager (owner?) explained they are very careful with the gf donuts, having separate tongs for regular, gluten free and vegan donuts. He told me the only potential for cross contamination was possibly flour in the air. All family members (gluten free and no restriction person) loved the freshness and flavors. These donuts are big and filling; two people can share one donut. So good! Highly recommend.

We traveled to Cali for vacation and we had the best experience at JD flannel. My 4 year old daughter has celiac disease and has rarely been able to have good quality gluten free donuts. The owner came out and specifically talked to her to get her excited about the donuts. Such a nice guy and super helpful in explaining all the safety precautions they take to avoid cross contamination. They were DELICIOUS. By far the best GF donuts I have ever had. I wish we live close by!

This place is amazing!!! They have a dedicated gluten free fryer, multiple flavors and I can’t say enough about the service! The doughnuts were a light, soft, pull apart texture, unlike most heavy gf doughnuts. The flavors were incredible and you can tell they pay attention to every ingredient they use. They were wonderfully friendly and I wish they would open one in my home town!

Delicious gluten friendly donuts! They are prepared in a separate fryer with a dedicated work space according to one of the owners. There is risk of cross contamination from flour in the air as they also make regular donuts in the same facility. The donuts are moist but not greasy and very hearty. I tried the vanilla cake with chocolate frosting as well as the lemonade donut. Both were tasty, however, the lemonade donut was AMAZING. The flavor was bright lemon and well balanced

There were four GF option when I visited! Fresh, warm, and perfect!! Dedicated work space, precautions, and fryer for GF. Flour in area and stored next to gluten donuts (own tray and tongs), so still a risk, but I took it. Delicious!! Perfect donuts.
