This was not good at all for people who are heavily allergic. They had something called “gluten friendly” which essentially means there is no gluten, but is heavily cross contaminated because it is fried in the same oil as other doughnuts. The people were very upfront about this, and did not try to sugarcoat it, but “gluten friendly” feels almost useless for the majority of people who are severely allergic. It is nice that they tried and I would recommend this for people who are not intensely allergic, or for people who are vegan because they have great vegan options. I did end up ordering a chocolate milk, which was not bad, although aside from knowing that the doughnuts were in fact cross contaminated, the servers did not know much else concerning the gluten present in what they serve.

Sidecar has delicious donuts, but they don’t have any process to avoid cross contamination and there donuts are DEFINITELY contaminated. I’ve been sick from the GF ones. They are also very unsupportive of celiac sensitives and basically respond “who cares” when the issue was brought up to them. Their GF donuts are not safe for celiacs- at all.

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.
