I was really excited to try this place as I’m allergic to gluten and egg. Unfortunately, I was super disappointed. The texture was very dry and the flavors were off. I couldn’t understand how a popular shop had donuts that were so bad. Maybe the vegan donuts aren’t bad but the gluten free vegan ones are horrible. I truly hope they can figure out a new recipe because it’s rare to have gluten free bakeries.

Uses almond flour in majority of their baked goods. Could not verify if there was cross contamination between the non-almond flour goods and their almond flour goods during preparation. So I could not even attempt to eat the items that were not made with almond flour. Which for the record for those with tree nut allergies -- the chocolate chunk, oatmeal, raisin, chocolate chunk with pecan... (This is what they had the day I went)

Long story short -- they don't label at all for additional allergies...

This place was great. They have gluten free in a separate case, employees change gloves before hand and bag gluten free and non gluten free separately. Put a gluten free sticker on my bag.

This is my first review here and I only tried one baked good and a coffee. The place is modern and clean. The coffee was outstanding. The lemon blueberry muffin was flavorful and real blueberry. It did have a next day taste to it so a tad dry but I would eat it again because I like my muffins with a bit of texture.

This bakery only offers Vegan or Gluten Free items. Gluten Free items are in a separate case. I sampled the cupcakes, muffins and doughnuts. Everything was delicious. Check their menu online for the daily flavors!

All I can say is AMAZING! Entire bakery is vegan and they have a nice variety of pretty and tasty baked goods, gluten free and otherwise. They use precautions for cross contamination and the gluten free items were in their own case. It was a lovely display, there were a lot of gf to choose from, as many as the non gf items. The gf items were packed in their own bag, marked with a gf sticker. The food was fresh, and really yummy. The staff were very helpful. I had no issues with being sick.

I appreciated that all of the gluten free items are in one pastry case, and the gluten ones are in a separate one on the other side of the register. The employees are super nice. There's also a lot of drink options in the drink fridges, so take a look at those too.

I was disappointed in the plain white donut base (they tasted bland, and the baking soda or baking powder flavor was noticeable). The frosting flavors were all very good. The lemon and blueberry donut was probable my favorite, followed by the chocolate with chocolate icing & sprinkles.

When I go back, I will focus on the chocolate donuts, or the lemon donut.

Delicious. We got 3 different flavored donuts, chocolate with sprinkles, apple cider, and maple brown sugar. They are a cake-y texture, not like fried KK donuts. Flavor is awesome. An awesome treat for my recently diagnosed 5 year old.

I usually rate 5 stars for anywhere that doesn’t gluten me. These were safe for me but I just want that crazy about the donuts themselves. They had a bit of a mushy texture and just an odd flavor. Of the ones I tried the lemon was the best and the chocolate ones had the strangest flavor. Almost like a carob doughnut instead of chocolate. I wish I liked these more as they were adorable and safe. Maybe I had them on an off day, as so many others seem to love them.
