    Wonderfully inventive donut combinations. Lots of gluten free and vegan options. The blueberry and earl grey tea donut was soft and intensely flavored.

    For those who are dairy free, gluten free AND soy free, try the chocolate coconut or passion fruit coconut. Unlike some of the other df fonuts, these are soy free (and oh-so-delicious) as well.

    The lemon donut is softer and much more moist than the average donut: Fonuts does not deep fry, instead steams! The iced coffee (from the infamous Lamills) is cold brewed for 17 hours! Best coffee!!!

    The rosemary and olive oil donut was almost like a really good cornbread. It was savory, it had the fragrance of the rosemary and the richness of the olive oil.

    If Fonuts’ opening week is any indication of what’s to come for his new bakery and coffee shop -- selling out of their fluffy goods each day -- you best be rising early to get a taste of the hype. Read more

    Delicious lattes. The milk is not organic but sweetens up nicely. No need to add sugar. Friendly down-home vibe and service. Great to break up the work day. Half dozen donuts to deliver to clients

    These rings of do’ come in baked & gluten-free funky flaves like rosemary, rum and chorizo cheddar, making up for the massive guilt you'll feel eating a donut that's actually kind of... healthy. Read more

    It's cheaper to buy a half dozen.wish they were $2 per instead of $3. I love the banana vegan GF version. I'd make this a bad habit if I could afford them. They don't give you a sugar high but sweet

    The fluffy confections are like the donut’s hipper, healthier cousin, baked fresh daily. Choose from flavors like strawberry buttermilk, maple bacon, and the must-try banana and chocolate.

    I scream for ice cream! Fonuts has outdone themselves with their newly launched ice cream sandwiches. Head over and add a scoop of homemade ice cream on top that piece of heaven.

    The banana chocolate faux-nut is like the best banana bread you've ever had... But better! Just make sure to leave your puppy at home - strict no pet policy.

    This is NOT your typical donut place—it’s better! Top favorites include: Chocolate Banana (which happens to be gluten-free), Blueberry Earl Gray and Strawberry Buttermilk.

    Got the blueberry earl grey for free! Birthday goodies. The glaze is really good. Fonuts taste more moist and cake like than donut. Still good!

    Incredible GLUTEN-FREE DONUTS!! So many flavors. The chocolate ones have the best taste and texture.

    Baked using less sugar than regular donuts, yet still perfectly delicious. You'll find fresh seasonal fruits, the requisite bacon, gluten-free selections, and savory bites. Read more

    These Faux Doughnuts are baked not fried, giving them a moist, cake-like crumb. Flavors include rosemary and olive oil, peanut butter and chocolate filled, and zesty lemon. Read more

    I don't understand why they mix olive oil with canola oil like in the rosemary fonut. I'm concerned about canola oil bcoz 90% of the canola oil sold in the US are GMO, known to cause health problems.

    Donuts here were tasty but they have a different consistency than regular donuts because they're baked. They're kinda cake or bead-like. Good for a try once but I'm not in a rush to return.

    The cold brew preparation of Lamill beans create a cold, dark cup with hints of honey and earth tones.

    Fonuts are "faux" because they're baked, not fried. Acclaimed pastry chef Waylynn Lucas whips up these tasty treats with--believe it or not--health in mind.
