For more than two decades, Black Cat Bake Shop has been satisfying Missoulans’ sweet teeth. Their doughnuts are gluten free and as a plain, naked doughnut or in a variety of filled doughnuts. The flavors change on a regular basis, so you’ll have to pop in to see what’s fresh.
These are some of the gluten-free treats available at the Black Cat Bakeshop in Missoula. Oh man. So good. It's not a gluten-free bakery but they take great precautions. There were a big group of us there to share and these were gone soon. The head baker, Jack Wich, knows what he's doing. And it turns out he taught baking at NECI, the year after Danny went there. And his family bought a horse on Vashon last year. Small world. I love these moments of connection. #glaciermt #smalltownbigeats #visitmissoula #sponsored
