Safe place. But only very sweet options. Most of GF are glazed, which I don’t like. No salty GF for a sub for example, which they sell there but no GF version. Coffee is not great. I recommend for a sweet tooth moment.

I happened to stumble upon this on Find Me Gluten Free one morning because I was craving something sweet one morning. Our Air BnB was in Revere so this location was super close. In total we got 6 donuts- two glazed, two jelly filled, one blueberry, and one strawberry (special flavor of the week). I almost cried happy tears eating the strawberry donut as this was my go-to flavor at Dunkin prior to being Celiac. The texture was consistent with a cake donut and didn’t even taste GF. The donuts are also nut free, which was great as my husband is nut free. This location only makes GF donuts and will bring in non-GF donuts to sell. Both GF and non-GF are clearly segregated and the employees understand cross contamination. As someone who is extremely cautious eating out, I felt totally safe eating here. I believe there are about a dozen flavors they offer and they can ship so I hope I get a box for my birthday! 

As of 2020 Kane’s Lincoln Avenue location is their dedicated gluten-free kitchen space. I worked with them to ensure their donuts would be safe for celiacs. They have over 12 delicious flavors that are gluten dairy and nut free! Try them all!

Gf chocolate donuts that remind me of the good old days being able to eat at Dunkin’ Donuts!! I’ve never found a gf donut like it. Their old fashioned glazed, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon sugar donuts are all amazing. They’ve consistently added flavors over the last few years until they now have 15 (fifteen!!!) permanent gf flavors. They’re also made in a totally separate building so there is no kitchen cross contamination. They’re so good that a non-gf family member, who hardly even likes donuts, loved them!

They sometimes sell out of certain flavors - you can order online for pickup at a certain time, and I highly recommend that if you have a particular flavor you want to try!

The donuts are fabulous and so many options!! I was first introduced to Kane’s prior to my gf days and can say bring the whole family, no one will be disappointed!! They have 3 shops, 2 are in Saugus, one is where they make the gluten free versions. Buy a box, coffees and milk and go for an awesome picnic at the Saugus Iron Works!

Wide variety of GF donuts! Donuts are made in a dedicated GF kitchen. Gluten filled donuts are available, but they are made elsewhere. Good donuts, lots of choices! Definitely worth a stop!

We stopped at Kane’s on Lincoln Ave in Saugus to pickup some gluten free donuts last weekend. My daughter has celiac so any chance to have safe, fried donuts is a treat. We tried the chocolate glazed, cinnamon sugar, lemon poppyseed, jelly, maple bacon, and blueberry. Overall, the donuts were good- they were a bit dense/dry, and noticeably gluten free but still enjoyable especially when warmed. Skip the maple bacon (not really maple bacon flavored) and jelly (just gross) and go for the blueberry, cinnamon sugar, and chocolate glazed. We also tried the blueberry and corn gluten free muffins which I would recommend skipping—too dry. Overall, I would go back and appreciate the celiac safe options.

LOVE their donuts! They have a new line of donuts called KGF free from dairy, nuts, and gluten. Donuts made in separate facility as well. Most of the donuts seem to be the same cake-based donut and vary with frosting and toppings. Highly recommend the coconut or the blueberry. Can sometimes be delivered through UberEats

As of 2021, Kane’s offers 12 different gluten free donuts all the time , as a opposed to the two they would rotate out. There’s no grainy texture or grit, just good old fashion donuts that are also gluten free. A must for sweets and breakfast lovers alike. They change gloves when serving any gluten free donuts and separate orders whenever asked.

I cannot say enough good things about Kane's Donuts! They have the BEST (and biggest) Donuts - and they have gluten free ones, too! They make honey dipped and chocolate honey dipped gf Donuts daily, plus have a specialty gf donut that changes every month. Call first, though, because they often sell out of the gf Donuts!

I am here in Boston for a swim meet and found this on this site. I went to the downtown location but they had sold out of gf donuts by 10 am. I decided to take a ride to this location and OMG!!! are these good. I have had celiac disease for a very long time and cannot remember the last time that I have had a donut. I had the old fashioned and chocolate glazed. I would have bought the strawberry but it was sold out. I bought a little more than a dozen but in going to go back tomorrow for any other flavors that may have. This shop is well worth the trip!!!

They have two types of GF donuts, chocolate and vanilla, and they tasted just like the regular donuts I was able to eat before I found out I was gluten intolerant. Not celiac friendly, and they have a sign stating that. But awesome for someone with just an intolerance. Best GF donuts I've ever had. Voted "The World's Best Donuts" by Saveur magazine. According to the non GF person I was with the pizza and regular donuts were amazing. Would definitely recommend!
