In my experience gluten free donuts are not easy to find. Since going gluten free over six years ago I have probably eaten less than ten gluten free donuts. And I guess for me that seems so odd. I would not say I ate donuts a lot before that, but we had one donut shop nearby and I have many memories of going and getting donuts with friends.
Bougie’s Donuts is located in a part of Southwest Austin called Sunset Valley. Sunset Valley has a lot of retail shopping as well as restaurants. Their donuts are also sold at different local coffee shops around town. I do not know if they have any of the gluten free versions at those locations though.
The storefront is somewhat small, but very cute. Definitely not what I am used to for a donut shop. As soon as you walk in you can see the display case for the donuts. They keep the gluten free donuts on the top shelf for safety. The display case makes a corner with the counter and the counter goes back towards the back of the building from there. On this counter they have the register and a nice espresso machine. In the back they also have a window that looks into the kitchen. So you can watch them make the donuts. I thought that was a really awesome idea.
They also have a handful of tables both inside and out. This allows you to sit and enjoy your company. Or if you are like me it gives you the opportunity to dig into your donuts as soon as possible.
Overall, I enjoy the donuts from Bougie’s and I recommend giving them a try. These donuts have been tested with a Nima Sensor and are Gluten Free.
