Oh how I wish I would have taken more pictures of this place! I found this little gem while searching on yelp for new gluten free friendly places to dine in the Roseville area since I would be there for work. Dr. Bob’s Donuts popped up on my search and at first I thought it was just a vegan place. Which while that does help with the dairy allergy I have it doesn’t really help when it comes to celiac disease. Upon visiting their website though I find out that their donuts are 100% gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and even allergen free. I was so excited I made it a point to come here for breakfast before my first demo job.
The lady from the back came up right away to help me and asked if it was my first time here. With an eager look I said yes and proceeded to look around while asking questions. “Are you 100% gluten free, dairy free, etc…” I got the exact answer I wanted to ever single question. They even have dairy free fro-yo! To make what they call a Do-yo which is a Donut topped with fro-yo! It was such a cute and good idea!
I then decided to start making my breakfast. I got one of the basic vanilla donuts and then moved over to their array of homemade sauces. They had 4 different hot glazes and then 5 or 6 bottles of sauces all homemade by the chef. :) She really out did herself on the sea salt dairy free caramel. It was so good on top of that donut. Then I moved to the fro-yo which I layered on top of my donut with both the vanilla and chocolate flavors! Then once I moved to the fresh fruit section I noticed they had kiwi fruit which I have a severe allergy too. She went back though and got me fresh blueberries, raspberries, and banana that wasn’t anywhere near the kiwi fruit up in the bins. Very accommodating. I then moved to the pudding section where they make homemade chia puddings and puddings out of So Delicious brand yogurt. I thought the chia puddings tasted good though I did not put any on my donut and the yogurt bases I wasn’t a fan of probably because in general I don’t like the culture in yogurt I think it’s too sour. I think moved to the rest of the dry toppings where I added enjoy life chocolate chips and apple chips! I ended up going back and adding more fro-yo since I knew I would regret it if I didn’t.
I walked over to check out with also a large coffee in hand and my bowl with the extra cut up fruit on the side ready to by weighed. I thought at first the total would be well of $10 since it was a specialty place and I got a large coffee. To my surprise though the total was under $10 at .64 cents an ounce and I got 20% off with my check in on yelp! Not bad for such a specialty item I think!
Upon tasting my concoction out in the car I was pleasantly surprised that the donut was still warm even under all that fro-yo! This made me really happy. Being able to go in somewhere and have everything in the place is always refreshing. They sound like they are sourcing their ingredients correctly and understand the worries people have when it comes to allergies and celiac disease. I would definitely come back here again. My only negative comment would be that there are no restroom’s. I usually drop a star off my review for something like this, but I understand that they are in an old location in historic Roseville and restrooms just aren’t as common in this area. So I will stick with my 5 stars and be back anytime I am in the area. Thankfully this month calls for work in Roseville again!
