    I really wanted to love this place. While vacationing in San Diego, we sought this restaurant out and tried both locations. We are Paleo (not "gluten-free"), but like to have an occasional treat. My 2 year and I both have Celiac disease. We ordered baked good from both places and honestly they were terrible. It makes me sad that they were so bad:(

    I wanted to love this place. Cupcakes were amazing, sandwiches/breads a bit dry and bland (poorly seasoned pesto, bread, and salad dressing), and people friendly. I will visit again for sweets but not anything else.

    Great place for a Gluten Free dining. Good muffins, good bread, eggs and bacon. Everything we had was good. My Son, whom I went Gluten Free to support, loved the idea that an entire business was gluten free for people like him.

    Baked goods were fabulous! Cupcakes to die for in many flavors. For lunch we ordered lasagna & chicken pot pie. Both were like store bought frozen meals they tossed into the oven. Lasagna was cold in the middle still.

    So freaking good!! As soon as we landed in SD we ate here. It was such a cool experience to be able to order anything on the menu!! My husband got the omlet and toast and the bread was so warm and soft and wonderful. We got a chocolate cupcake too. So good!! Wish I could have eaten it again before I left!!

    Heaven. It's not often you walk into a dedicated gluten-free eatery. We had the veggie quiche and shared a blueberry muffin. Amazing! Soy and corn free options, as well.

    Very friendly service. They made a special sandwich for me because the one I wanted had pesto and their pesto has cheese. They didn't have as many fully dairy free desserts as I would've liked, but the brownie and lemon bars just had a bit of butter, so that was okay for me and both were very good.

    Awesome cinnamon rolls!!! They go fast! i went back to order a second one for my husband and me, but they had sold out -bummer for me! The omelette was good but the sausage in the omelette had too many herbs (I think it was rosemary) and I found it overpowering. Some may enjoy that flavor. We had wanted to order a lunch to take with us for a picnic but they won't sell lunch items until 11. We were there for breakfast so did not wait around to place that order. That was disappointing.

    Great concept. Everything is gluten free. Flavor is improving. Cupcakes are now really good, at first they were just ok. My favorite is the cinnamon roll. Sooo good! Their baguettes are also delicious. I haven't tried there dinner/lunch options, as their hours aren't the best and I've gone countless times only to find them closed.

    Went here while visiting a friend in the area. I had tried the meatball sandwich which was amazing and bigger than I expected. The staff is very nice and attentive. They have a large variety of food to offer such as tasty salads, hearty sandwiches, and delicious desserts.

    If you have a gluten allergy then this is your place. I had breakfast there and the pancakes are to die for. What a wonderful bakery and the staff was excellent. The crew was very knowledgable about the different ingredients they were cooking with. My kids even like it and they usually don't eat gluten free like I do.

    I love this place but would love to see one in Escondido. The staff is friendly & very helpful. I don't mind the price when you think about all the equipment that is need to make sure it's just right. Only thing that I would change is that I would sell the mixes. There cake is the first I've had that doesn't give me stomach problems (not gluten problems). I just think every1 should try them. Thanks guys for having a place where we can eat really safe & also for making it corn free (allergic). Jeanie

    My friend shared this gem with me after my recent Celiac diagnosis. All is not lost! I walk in and breathe a sigh of relief every time I visit, knowing I can eat anything here and not worry about getting sick! I swear by their baguettes...and their cupcakes are so moist and yummy. Just last week however I strayed from my norm and I tried a berry cheesecake...to die for!!! I'm posting a picture of it now :-)

    Awesome. You would never know it was gluten free, and that can get you into trouble! Because it's gluten free doesn't mean it's calorie free! You want to eat it all! YUM!!

    At first I wasn't fond of the idea of trying something that is Gluten Free. My first instinct, is that it wouldn't be tasty or satisfy my sweet tooth. But I am the type to try something once and I am glad that I did. I tried their delicious mini cupcakes that was soft, tasty and satisfied my sweet tooth. I loved the combination of the cupcake not overly powering with sweetness. In fact, it was just right. My favorite would have to be the carrot cupcake. If the dessert is delicious, I will definitely have to come back to try their other dishes. Also, I am impressed that they offer cakes for any occasion. That is great to know and I will refer 2GOOD2B to my friends who are Gluten Free!

    This place is amazing! I can't believe it's all gluten free! They even have cupcakes!! When I first walked in I couldn't believe the huge wedding cake they had out front. They make a really good panini, the bread tastes really good, fresh, and I almost forgot that it was gluten-free! I also have to say their french toast is out of this world! Don't leave without getting a cupcake though. I have to add to this,since I just recently tried their chicken pot pie..probably one of the best I have ever had!! :)

    Due to my best friends gluten allergies, we have to choose gluten-free restaurants when dining out. I usually have a difficult time finding items that I like when we go to such restaurants, but loved the food at 2GOOD2B. I think that not only the chicken pot pie was amazing, but I would have never guessed that the cupcakes-I ordered the carrot cake-were gluten-free. I would definitely eat there again! Don't forget to take a baguette home...the bread is delicious.
