UPDATE: MARCH 31, 2020 — Both the Surry Hills and Balmain Nutie stores remain open for takeaway, but the crew has also put together an extensive delivery menu, which features everything from fresh produce and ground coffee to vegan cookies and gluten-free doughnuts. Its also offering vegan lunch and dinner packs ($32) filled with the dish of the day (think quiche, tacos or corn fritters), salad or soup, dessert, fruit and cold-pressed juice. Head here to place your order.

Gluten conscious and cruelty free foodies, we bring you tidings of great joy. No longer will you be deprived of doughnuts, thanks to the good folks at Nutie. After a year hopping from market to market around town, the Nutie Donuts team is opening a permanent location in Balmain next month where they can sling their sweet treats full time.

Opening on Saturday, March 4 at 13 Beattie Street, Nutie Donuts will bake their doughnuts daily in an open kitchen using premium gluten-free ingredients. They'll also offer a variety of vegan and dairy-free options because doughnuts are for everyone.

Speaking of options, let's talk about their flavour combinations. Among the extravagant creations that have popped up on their Instagram account in recent times are pink Champagne, black sesame and green tea, and beetroot with dark chocolate ganache. Oh, and don't worry: despite there being not a gluten protein in sight, they assure us that they taste just like the real thing.

To give you a little added incentive to pay them a visit, Nutie will be giving away free doughnuts to the first 100 customers on their first day of operations, while a dollar from every subsequent doughnut sold that day will be donated to the local Police Citizens Youth Club.

"We want Nutie Donuts to be a strong part of the Balmain community, not just a shopfront," said owner Sina Klug. "That means [doing] everything we can to make a positive difference to the people around us."

Nutie Donuts will open at 13 Beattie Street, Balmain from 10am on Saturday, March 4. For more information visit them on Facebook.
