Their gluten free doughnuts are not safe for those with celiac disease as they fry them in the same oil as the gluten doughnuts.

Very delicious GF donuts with so many options! The girl working put GF and non GF donuts in the same bag.. I’ve been multiple times and this was the only time it happened. She seemed uneducated so be careful and let them know but I did not get sick. Only available on Fridays but they do have a GF muffin available everyday. Love this place just not for celiacs.

HAD NOTHING!!!!! ONLY ON FRIDAYS WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!!! I will never be returning because I can’t controls what days I have celiac disease. Do not go here. There’s also absolutely no way it’s safe. It was all on the same counter.

Should have read the other review a bit more closely but they only offer their one gluten free option (doughnuts) and that’s only offered on Fridays. :( So I was really bummed we wasted a trip, but the coffee was good!

The Gluten Free Donuts are delicious! They offer a variety of GF donuts on Friday mornings. The day we visited they had 8 to choose from. We tried original glazed, apple cider, maple glaze, chocolate on chocolate, chocolate with sprinkles. So good!!!
