Pleased with the gf donut selection. Gf donuts are stored in a separate case from regular donuts and clearly labeled. I do wish the server washed his hands or put on fresh gloves before handling the GF donuts. He just used a fresh piece of pastry paper. He did pick the GF donuts first before the regular donuts and was happy to put the regular donuts in a separate bag. Two folks working werent sure if the tea used to make iced teas is GF or not and I was too lazy to Google it myself.

Great donuts. Get there early in the morning, gluten free or not. They sell out quickly of the different flavors. The day to day will vary on what GF options they have but all are good. GF donuts made separately and safely in other fryer.

Their donuts never disappoint. While not an exclusively gf place they take extreme precaution to minimize the risk of cross contamination. The list all their procedures on their website which helps.

I was never a big donut-eater before I had celiac, but I knew I had to give Holy Donut a try. I was super impressed with their gluten-free selection. I think there were 8 different gf flavors! They also had great coffee.

I know someone who worked there, and she said that while they don’t have a dedicated production space for gf donuts, they do empty the oil every night, clean the fryers thoroughly, and mix/fry the gf donuts first. I ate there for the first time today (honey lavender flavor donut). I asked the counter person to wash their hands first before picking my donut and they were very accommodating. I made sure to leave a big tip. I am very sensitive to cc and I did not get sick at all!! Very excited to have a new option.

Yum!! Loved the cinnamon donut. Loved that GF were on their own rack and packaged in their own bag (without me having to ask).

The GF donuts are all cake donuts, so if you're expecting a chewy glazed donut experience, you'll be disappointed. Also, the taste profile from one flavor to another isn't very different. Most of the flavor is in the frosting. The GF donuts were kept in a separate case but when the store is busy, I would worry about cross-contamination from the servers' gloves.

On a different note, I was asked to wait for my specialty coffee. The store was packed, so when the coffee type (not my name, like other coffee shops do) was called, I didn't hear it. When my husband inquired after several minutes, the gentleman behind the counter (in the Dallas Cowboys hat) blamed us for the mistake and said he gave it away to someone else. Another one was made, but the first impression was already set. For four donuts and a coffee, our bill was $21. We will not be back.

We love to the gluten free selections at Holy Donut. They have an ever expanding selection (Dark chocolate sea salt, lemon, chai, old-fashioned, cinnamon sugar, triple berry, and maple) of GF donuts. Have eaten there 30 times over 5 years and never gotten sick. (Not celiac)

They make gluten free separate I ask for the ones in the back under plastic to avoid cross contamination because the ones out are exposed when they make donuts. Call the night before to ask them to set some aside! Best donuts I've had and even those who aren't gf love them!

I go here everytime I visit Portland! I love these donuts and wish they had them where I live. They're a little pricy ($2.78/donut) but they delicious. My favorite is toasted coconut but they're all good.

Really cute place and they have specific donuts that are gluten free and delicious, just wish they were as moist as the non gluten free ones. My girlfriend tried both and thought the gf ones were dry. Still recommend!

They did not store the donuts in a way that kept them from getting cross-contaminated by the gluten donuts. On top of that... They were totally unapologetic and rude about that fact.

outstanding, the taste of each gf donut I have tried is delish, the staff is kind, understanding, and know about celiac. I recommend that you call the day before you plan to go if you are going to purchase a dozen, that way you know there will be a variety in your dozen since they go quickly. I travel over an hour to buy my donuts, they freeze well,, well worth the trip.

Delicious!!! They use separate cutting equipment and a separate GF fryer with oil just to cook the GF donuts. I hadn't had a fresh, warm, REAL donut in almost three years so this was heaven! You wouldn't know that it's GF! My faves are the chocolate sea salt and the cinnamon sugared donuts.

They always have cinnamon sugar gf donuts, and they feature a second option that varies daily. When I went, they had chai glazed. Both the cinnamon sugar and chai glazed were delicious! It was so great to actually have a warm donut! The staff was very friendly and the coffee was good. (I didn't ask about a separate fryer...I should have...but I was too excited. I didn't feel sick, for what that's worth.)

Not too sure. But I have celiacs, had a gf donut and feel great.

I only have been here once. Had the dark chocolate sea salt donut. Moist and very delicious. Will definitely be going back to try others.

Staff was very nice and friendly.
