Chicago's neighborhoods are dotted with doughnut shops, and we've rounded up the best gluten-free doughnuts in the city! From pistachio to coconut, there are plenty of options -- even if you are gluten-free. Check out the video and list of the best gluten-free doughnuts in Chicago. Let me know if we should add any others!
Here are The Best Gluten-Free Doughnuts in Chicago:
#1 Stan’s Donuts & Coffee — Multiple locations including Wicker Park, Fulton Market, and Streeterville
1560 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
Stan’s Donuts & Coffee is a must! They offer three gluten-free options: pistachio, chocolate, and blueberry. The gluten-less dough is made from potato and brown rice flour. Heads up, although those doughnuts are made gluten-free, they do share equipment with the regular doughnuts. If you don’t have time to visit their locations, Stan’s delicious treats are available for pick-up and delivery to be enjoyed at any time and place. They also ship all across America, so whether you’re visiting Chicago and wish to enjoy this doughnut back home or just want to send some to a friend across the country, Stan’s Donuts & Coffee has your back!
Price: $2.70 for a gluten-free doughnut
#2 Wheat’s End Café — Lake View
2873 N. Broadway Chicago, IL 60657
What’s so cool about Wheat’s End Café? Its entire menu is gluten-free! After learning about their own gluten intolerance, one of the café’s co-owners wanted to offer gluten-free food that did not compromise taste. If you’re craving something sweet, their strawberry, chocolate, coconut or pumpkin doughnuts are a fabulous choice! Wheat's End Cafe is entirely celiac safe, making it a favorite restaurant among people who are gluten-free.
Price: $3.00 each
#3 Firecakes Donuts — Multiple locations including the Loop, Lincoln Park, and River North
68 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60654
The bakery is owned by a married couple — Jonathan and Karen Fox — who used Karen's family secret doughnut recipe from the 1930s to open Firecakes. The popular Chicago doughnuts spot offers a decadent gluten-free doughnut. The dark chocolate doughnut has a chocolate filling and coconut flakes. It's vegan too!
#4 Do-Rite Donuts – Multiple downtown locations including Wrigleyville, Loop, and West Loop
50 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60601
Apart from its famous all-day breakfast and chicken entrees available at two of their locations, Do-Rite offers one of the most popular gluten-free doughnuts in Chicago. The daily menus are subject to their chefs’ discretion, so not all doughnuts will be available every day. Still, you can expect gluten-free flavors on the menu such as Birthday Cake, Valrhona Chocolate Glazed, and Cinnamon & Sugar.
Price: $2.95 for one gluten-free doughnut

The Pistacho Donut from Stans Donuts is a winner in my book!
Definitely going to try the chocolate!! So excited. Thanks for sharing Lizzy ❤️
These all look great!! I did a self made donut tour of Chicago & found my favorite donut to be the blueberry old fashion from Doughnut Vault!
I love a simple glazed donut, but my favorite might have to be WARM apple cider donuts. They remind me of Fall and it’s my favorite season!
THANKS FOR SHARING ALL OF THE GOOD SPOTS! I’m starving now!
I’m not a gluten-free person, but I’m loving a basic glazed, and I’m happy to try gluten-free until I find a favorite flavor! ?

Pistachio donuts all the way!!! ?
Becca Joy says
All of stans are definitely the best:) especially normal glaze
My current fav is Stan’s glazed, although the Chocolate Glutenless sounds dreamy.
Mallory Grimaudo says
Pistachio all the way! ?
Stan's is by far the best in Chicago for gluten less donuts! I love Stan's so much that we did our engagement session at the Stan's on Clark and Diverse! I do wish they offered more flavors.
The best donut at Stan's is the chocolate! So velvety and rich!
Amanda Garcia says
The GF blueberry donut at Stan’s Donuts is my favorite!
Allie Cooney says
