Amazingly donut-ish experience! This is my second time having this treat and I can’t say enough. As a celiac with high standards i.e., I will toss out rather than eat wasted calories, these are an outstanding treat

Pricey but delicious. We ordered ahead, five different flavors for 4 people. Was $22.48. Substantial cake-like donuts, great to share in a group so you can have several flavors. Financially I’m kinda glad they’re not in my hometown, but we’ll definitely be back next time we’re in Boston. Nearby park with tables/benches and not far from aquarium.

Really delicious donuts and they are careful about cross contact! They have so many gf flavor options and I’d say it’s worth the price!

Amazing donuts safe for celiacs! The Gf donuts are fried in a separate dedicated fryer. It's the best GF donut my 14 year old celiac daughter says she has ever had. I tried it and loved it too and I'm not GF. We highly recommend it! Go before noon though because they do sell out.

Delicious cake donuts made daily. We got the last 4 donuts (2 apple cider, 2 chocolate) at 10am, so order ahead or go early. Saved two for the next day in the plastic to go container and they held up great! Expensive but tasty!

Delicious GF donuts with lots of flavor options. My son and I tried cookies and cream, chocolate glazed, and cinnamon sugar. Both of us agreed the cinnamon sugar was the best! GF was in a different case from regular donuts.

I’ve gone multiple times now, and totally trust them to be celiac safe! They know their stuff!! This is the first time I’ve ever had GF Oreos worked into another dessert, absolutely delicious! They do have gluten in the kitchen, but say that they take every possible precaution. I’m pretty sensitive to cross-contamination and have had no problem eating their donuts!

Had the Gf cookies and cream and it was delicious. I’m allergic to wheat and not sensitive to cross contamination, and was delighted to find a treat that tasted nearly like the real thing. They’re also a good size, when I feel like Gf baked goods can have a tendency to be tiny and sad.

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!

So there are 3 locations. One of them is dedicated GF and sends donuts to the other two and vice versa. I was so excited the first time I ate there that I made myself sick from eating so many donuts 😂😂😂 I LOVE the plain glazed, chocolate iced plain glazed, blueberry, and cinnamon sugar. They made a GF Oreo one when the new Oreos launched and omggggg. 🤤🤤🤤

OMG! These were the best donuts I ever had, gluten free or not. Ordered a half dozen various kinds and we’re tasting our way through them. They kept the gf donuts in the back, separate from the regular donuts. No problem with cross contamination and I’m pretty sensitive. Highly recommend.

Update 2/16/21: they now have dedicated kitchen space solely for GF donut baking. That site delivers to the other two daily. That site ONLY makes GF donuts. I’ve had many of their donuts since learning this and am very happy with my experiences.

——— Not safe for people with celiac disease! No separate cooking prep spaces. Flour flying everywhere!

The GF donuts here are SO GOOD! They taste like real donuts (or what I remember real donuts tasting like). They make their GF donuts in a separate completely GF facility. The GF donuts are also dairy and nut free. They now offer 12 GF donuts (old fashioned glazed, old fashioned coconut, plain chocolate frosted, cinnamon sugar, devil’s food chocolate, chocolate coconut, chocolate butter crunch, blueberry blast, lemon poppyseed, apple cider, pumpkin spice, and maple bacon). I have tried every single one and they are all really good! Their Instagram page posts about any GF monthly specials on the first of every month and has pictures of the GF options too. The staff is super careful if you let them know you have an allergy/celiac- they will change gloves and make sure they put GF donuts in a separate bag or box and label it GF. They also ship nationwide, deliver, and you can preorder for pickup online!

Though the website says that they cannot cater to hypersensitive individuals, they say they cook the GF doughnuts before all the others, prepared in a separate fryer and area.

Six hours later, I’m completely destroyed with a huge reaction. A significant amount of gluten must have been in the food for it to cause such a severe reaction. Not safe.

Delicious donuts! They're a little cake-like but that doesn't bother me - honestly I like them better than how I remember regular donuts. The flavor of the month can be hit or miss but the regular chocolate and classic varieties are always good.
