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!

Donuts taste amazing. They change gloves before you order. Options can be limited at times. Eaten here a few times and never had an issue.

The best GF old fashioned donut I’ve had—taste and texture is super similar to “traditional” donuts. A bit sweet (it’s coated in icing), but great in moderation.

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.
Gluten Free display.  Always have the chocolate and old fashioned glazed and sometimes have a third speciality flavor.

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!

We arrived around 8:45am and waited in line to find that they were all out of gf donuts. My 6yo Celiac son went with the flow, but I’d recommend calling ahead before making the trip.

I was told the gf donuts are baked at a separate location that is dedicated gf and once brought on site they keep them separate. I didn’t get sick so it seems they know what they’re doing and taking celiac seriously!

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.

We were able to get gluten and dairy free donuts here, and they were delicious. We went late in the day, and they only had 1 flavor left of the gluten free, so go early if you want selection.

The gluten free donuts are real. This the first GF donut I have ever had that tastes like I remember donuts. They are also larger than standard chain donuts and there is a no up charge for GF. Not fast food price but worth it!

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.

I think the donuts might be prepared in a shared kitchen but I'm Celiac and never had a reaction.

Gluten free donuts that taste like... donuts! Of course there is a risk eating here, but they do attempt to prevent cross contamination and I haven’t ever had a reaction (and I’ve probably gone through about 5 full “frequent donut” reward cards... I eat a lot of their donuts...)

These donuts are amazing. I used to have a reaction to them but I don’t anymore. I think that they are getting better about how they handle gluten free donuts. They only have three flavors, but it is awesome to be able to have an old fashioned donut and a cup of coffee with my friends.

This place is AMAZING!!!!! A real doughnut! I fly out tomorrow and intend to buy six to take with me. They are that good :D The person working knew to change her gloves and put it in a separate bag from the cookies and cream gluten one I bought for my wife plus to get mine first. I do wish they had more variety like Boston Cream Pie, but I loved my old-fashioned glazed one. I would have been disappointed if the only options were chocolate- something I encountered yesterday at 2 different cupcake shops. Thank you, Kane’s, for making me feel normal and having such a tasty treat!

Went yesterday with my Nima sensor to test the gluten free donut it came back with low amounts of gluten found in it... didn't care for the response I got from the owner wasted trip/money for food I didn't bother to try without risking getting sick. Didn't like how I was told NO ONE ever complained about their gluten free donuts... they didn't handle the Nima test/proof well

Update!

Kane's Donuts blocked me from their Instagram account which has the picture proof of Nima saying their donut has gluten in it... that alone should tell you how shady they are. Best of luck to anyone who eats there. Don't believe me go on my Instagram @glutenfreepanda
