Sidecar’s donuts are simply amazing but even their gluten-friendly donuts are not safe for Celiacs. Nima sensor found gluten in them.

Same rack; same fryer. Donut looked delicious but not safe. If only they took some precautions, it would be amazing.

Their most popular donut is"gluten free" but is so contaminated by the not so dedicated kitchen. My husband tried it and said it was the best donut he ever had. I just watched him eat it. If they only took the correct precautions everyone could enjoy.

Donuts are fried in same frier as the regular donuts, utensils are used universally and items all placed in same box.

Not certified GF- shared kitchen space. Ingredients not yet posted. Every single flavor I’ve eaten has been wonderful! Huckleberry, Samoa, Butter & Salt, Love, Birthday Cake, Double Chocolate, and most recently Pina Colada 🤤

Warning: This place is NOT Celiac Safe!!! At least not as of a few months ago. This may be fine for those with an intolerance, but they fry the "gluten-free" donuts in a shared fryer with the rest of the regular donuts. That's a big danger for those of us with Celiac. I am glad that the employees were upfront and honest about that, though.

My sister who is gluten intolerant tried the gluten free donut and loved it! They fry their GF donuts in the same oil as the regular donuts, so I couldn’t have it. Not celiac friendly

So glad we tried this place out! Such great donuts! They have a new GF donut flavor every week. I had a birthday cake donut which was fantastic. Can’t wait to go back and try the other flavors. Staff is very helpful and cautious with the GF. Definitely worth the wait.

I've only gone once. They only offer one GF option on their menu. I had the Old Fashion, but I was grateful because it was so good. However, I did not ask if they prepare, handle & bake the GF dough separate from the gluten batches.

This was the best damn donut I've ever put in my mouth - gf or not. Slightly warm and amazing. Granted I have had a donut in almost three years, but this was worth the wait!

I thought the doughnut was fantastic! The price was a little high for my taste, but I would go again when visiting Costa Mesa.

Not Celiac friendly. Offer 1 gluten free donut each week, you cans find the flavor of the week on their website. Had the banana walnut and it was sooo good! Will definitely be bad to try the other flavors!

Not for people with celiac or even sensitivity. Major cross contamination. Employees aren’t knowledgeable about allergies and flat out don’t care. Icing on regular donuts is used for gluten free ones. Flour filled gloves are used to move gluten free donuts.

Artisanal donuts with a GF option but fried in same frier so not safe for Celiac, sadly. This the low rating. Go to ICDC or Fonuts across town for delicious and safe donuts.

As the other person said, prepared in same area as other doughnuts. I love the banana walnut.

Takes ATM/credit and doesn't charge extra for a small purchase.

The gluten free donuts here are amazing! At $4 a pop, though, they're a little pricey. They are prepared in the same fryer/area as the other donuts, though, so beware. I haven't gotten sick from them but I wouldn't be surprised if other people do. They offer one gluten-free flavor at a time, changed weekly. The butter & salt donuts melt in your mouth.
