    I have celiacs and this place was great! Amazing flavors for GF. We bought 1 of each flavor they had: Lemon glaze, maple glaze, chocolate glaze, cinnamon glaze, glazed chocolate coconut, and plain! Moist, not overly sweet, great texture, just AWESOME :-)

    We went to the Scarborough location (not listed on this app). Donuts were amazing! We took some home, yay! 6 different flavors to choose from. They are huge & moist with great texture.

    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!

    I was so glad to find this place. The line was long on a Sunday morning but well worth it. There were 5 options for gf donuts. The cashiers told me that the owners daughter has celiac which made me feel safe about eating there. So delicious!

    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.)

    Great GF donuts. It's hard to find a GF donut anywhere, so having a few options to choose from was nice. I was a little nervous about how close the regular donuts were in the case to the GF ones at the Exchange St location (I did get one and felt fine afterward). I felt better about how the GF donuts are separated into a different case at the Park Ave location.

    Absolutely loved the maple donut and the coconut chocolate gf donut. I was so excited to try this place... it was excellent! I recommend getting there early. If not, call because they run out of gluten free donut flavors. We are headed back again today, after calling to find a location with some gf options.

    The GF chocolate sea salt donut is sooo good! they generally have one other flavor, but it's not many nor often. This is NOT a GF environment, they make many glutenous donuts a day! I've been sick on several occasions, due to cross contamination.

    The only celiac friendly donut in town I know of. I was in the shop and overheard someone order a dozen donuts. They said throw a few GF into the box as well because someone at the office was gluten free. The server insisted they go into a separate bag just in case that person was celiac. 'Nuf said!

    If you like heavy, deep fried donuts, they offer a couple choices made with potato flour. The rest are all a combo of wheat & potato flour. All I could taste was a "deep fried" flavor. $2.70 for a 'GF' donut

    Amazing donuts, seriously. The dark chocolate sea salt is basically heaven. If you're really sensitive though, be wary: the shop is quite cloudy (like dense flour-y bakery air, you know?) because they make thousands of glutenous donuts every day! While I have thoroughly enjoyed the donuts I've had on 4-5 different occasions, I had varying reactions to most. Three stars based on gluten-free-friendliness, a million stars based on the holiest of donuts.

    Amazing donuts, period. Way better than regular donuts and to be able to enjoy them gf is a treat. They usually have 3 or so gluten free flavors. The coconut and dark chocolate sea salt are to die for.

    Dedicated fryers, separate area where gf donuts are displayed so no crumb droppage from the other non-gf donuts. Maybe the best donut I've ever had, even before going gluten-free!
