    Hands down the best GF bakery I've ever seen, this is a must visit! The bakery is completely Nut/GF and also has many dairy-free and other allergen-free products. I actually thought the frosting, cookies and bread tasted too good to actually be GF but they are! This company has gone above and beyond, staff is extremely helpful and they even ship nationwide (an added bonus!) and they aren't over-priced at all! I left with regular bread, cinnamon raisin bread (very large loafs), chicken pot pie, thick and freshly backed graham crackers, sugar cookies, vanilla cupcakes and a small funfetti cake (all for $35!). So glad I took a detour off 95 and found this gem, can't say enough good things!! Thank you A&J!

    Great bread, just like Gramma's homemade! Love their biscotti too, though it's not as hard as traditional biscotti. Not crazy about their frosting on the cupcakes. Tastes more like shortening base than butter.

    Love A&J Bakery. When the normal close-to-home options are getting boring, this is the remedy! They have EVERYTHING... and if they somehow don't make what you're looking for yet, chances are they are working on it and will soon. We especially love the chocolate chip cookies (OMG BEST EVER), pie crusts (the best we've found), and pizza dough. The ginger molasses cookies are, oddly, our favorites - even though we wouldn't have guessed we liked either ginger or molasses all that much if you asked. They're moist, chewy, and amazing.

    Hands down the best place for GF baked goods! Everything I've ever had has been delicious... And I've tried quite a bit of their products. I ordered three pies from them for Thanksgiving and even my gluten eating family members couldn't tell the difference and loved them!

    I love them! I try to make it out to their shop around once a week to satisfy my sweet tooth and they have a fantastic assortment of foods in their dedicated gluten and nut free facility. I even got full sized pies from them for the holidays. They're reasonably priced too for being such a niche market.

    This place has it all. We heard that this place had a lot of items and I was unsure of it till I got there. Omg they have so many products it will take a year to try every item that they carry. We spent 64.00 and got a ton of product. Very reasonable prices great selection and taste is the best I have ever had. I have had cealic for three months now and after coming here it makes me feel like normal again. Give it a try u will be very happy .

    I've only tried the bread, which was by far the best gluten free bread i have tried thus far. however seeing as it was over 7.00/loaf i'll continue to make my own and play with the recipe. i was waiting for almost 5 minutes before anyone came to assist me, there are no prices on anything and seeing as i had 2 small children with me did not want to spend another 15 min asking what the price of everything was in the store. i primairly went to try the bread not the sweets as i have a pretty big list of my own recipes. however i wont be driving the 45 min back there anytime soon, unless i win the lottery!!

    Great options ! You will not find a bigger selection of GF treats in RI. This place is dedicated GF & Nut Free with some dairy free options. One business can't make everyone happy but this one can make most happy. Give them credit for trying !!! REMEMBER they are the only DEDICATED GF bakery in RI. Love the bread, cookies, hermits, Chicken Soup with Macaroni, holiday items, zeppoli's & eclair's !!!

    The cheesecake there was delicious :D ! but the Udis blueberry muffins tastes better than theirs :) & It is so tru that when the customer service of a bussiness is not great it becomes discouraging :( they looked @ us like we were not customers (if i wish to b a seller too i will treat people nice & b happy & friendly & with an understanding attitude towards customers-even if i dont know wich of those is with a special diets-thats the principal reason to buy there-so the visitors become longtime customers :) but we didnt got that the 1st time I went with my family & that is so discouraging! :) we havent go back there again..maybe someday i will go to c if there is any improvement overall & in the bakery selections..

    I love this bakery. I started going there for my nephew who has a tree nut allergy , so when I went gluten free I knew where to go. My favorite offering is the ricotta biscuits, everyone in my family loves them. We had their cupcakes for a birthday celebration and no one knew they were gluten free, although as with most gluten free cakes they were a little heavier than regular cupcakes. I don't understand the complaints about the service, I have always been served politely. As for the offerings being stale I came upon the last bag of ricotta biscuits and they were a little dryer than the very new ones, but it only happened one time and I am there weekly. So glad A&J decided to go gluten free, as well as nut free, since I've developed a tree nut allergy too! Since going gluten free I have not had a migraine, I used to have 3 per week. A&J keeps me on the straight and narrow without sacrificing baked goods!

    Owners wife is very rude. Makes it sound like they are doing you a favor by being open. Good selection, but I will shop somewhere else.

    This is a sweet tooth life saver. Everything from the cupcakes to the imported pasta from Italy is to die for.
