It was so nice to eat somewhere and not have to worry about getting sick! Amazing food and a fabulous choice of dessert.
Safest place in town to grab a bite. Diverse menu and food is wonderful!
Had the turkey melt and the lava cake. Yum!
By far one of the best parts of relocating to Little Rock (yes, there are many, this one is just really high on a very long list). Finding gluten free, vegan food is a rare gift - I'm so thankful to the folks at Dempsey who seem to just think of everything!
Wonderful! I go there at least once per week. Pretty expensive for just a sandwich, but peace of mind is worth it.
Never disappoints! Everything is great! I feel like Paula and the others there are our extended family!
"The best GF hotdog bun EVER!!!" 10yo GF son. :-) makes me a happy momma.
Food taste great, and a very friendly staff! love the lemon desserts
The ladies were exceptionally helpful. we called ahead looking for bread and they saved their last half loaf of everything bread for us. we had chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies for my gf boys, which were divine and worth every penny. my sister and I split a slice of coconut like roulade, which i felt was overpriced, but also delicious. we haven't tried the bread yet, but it looks amazing and the slices are huge - like normal huge! I would definitely stop in again.
So glad we stopped here on our way through Little Rock! Delicious GF, SF, NF, EF, and DF breads and desserts. We especially enjoyed the Italian dinner rolls and Jai dipped cookies!
Great place that we stopped at coming through Little Rock.
Amazing food, helpful and knowledgable staff, friendly to many allergies.
They even fix a to go box for me that is freezer ready so that I can enjoy Dempsey's at home!
Love this place!! You can get a wonderful lunch, an actual sandwich on greet bread. The cracker bread is so good you'll want it even if you don't have to eat gluten free. And the desserts are amazing. The milk cake is by favorite but the cookies are scrumptious too.
My favorite place in Little Rock! I can eat anything there! I got a little teary when I got there. It is amazing. The owner came and chatted with us. She's a sweetheart. I love to support businesses like her's. I will be back and I will order goods. Gluten free bread isn't always tasty, but the bread there ROCKS! BROWNIES! Yes! Yum! Cookies, cheesecake, & more. Awesome! Delicious food and wonderful people.
delicious and super friendly
This place has wonderful food and Paula is very sweet and helpful. Lots of samples so you know what you are getting. Love it.
My sister-n -law ordered me some cookies & cake from the bakery & it was great so we planned a trip to Little Rock to visit the bakery. It was well worth it! Paula & staff are very knowledgeable about food allergies in baked goods and are willing to discuss them with you. I could not believe all of the variety of baked goods. I bought many items after trying her samples.
We are from Boston and visited Little Rock over the weekend. We were so lucky to find Dempsey's. This is hands down the best gluten free bakery we have been to. My son has a wheat, dairy and nut allergy, so he was in hog heaven (pun intended). Paula and her staff are incredibly knowledgeable and kind. One was even kind enough to tell me about this website/app, which I had never heard of before! Thank you Paula!! All best, Ellie, Brian, Dylan and Lyndon
Awesome! Cookies and creme cheesecake, hot milk cake and key lime pie! now if they could just remove the calories!
FANTASTIC! The service was exceptional, didn't feel like I was a bother being celiac. What a treat it was to be able to order lunch and dessert both gluten free. My fiancé and I were driving through Arkansas and saw the reviews for Dempsey's so we decided to stop. We loaded up on all kinds of breads, cookies, dumpling mixes and cracker bread! So yummy! It's a must-go if you're in the area or around Little Rock!
I Can't say enough good things about this place, I just wish there were more around the country.
Any time you can find a dedicated GF bakery you have to check it out. I'm not from Little Rock, but I make sure to stock up on Dempsey pitas, pizza crust, and baguettes and other sweet goodies when I come to visit. They ship too!
I very seldom give 5 stars, but this bakery is outstanding. Everything I bought was great and the cinnamon rolls were the absolute best I have ever eaten. We will definitely be back.
Great to eat in a certified GF restaurant. Wide selection of baked goods - both fresh and packaged to go. Samples are available to try, as well. My son is not a celiac but had had a sandwich and thought it tasted like a "normal" sandwich. Very friendly staff.
Paula is wonderful and the Hot Milk Cake is one of the best things I've ever eaten.
Located in little rock, Dempsey Bakery has an extensive and varied menu featuring items such as sandwiches, soups, breads, potpies, cakes, cookies, cheesecakes and more. they also offer dairy and egg free options as well as special order cakes.
Such a great place with the most lovely owner. I have been twice when I drive through on road trips between memphis and dallas- a great stop for a sandwich and soup for lunch! They also have sugar free options and SO many great allergen free items! (I'm dairy free, but lots of egg, soy, etc). The spice muffins and cookies are totally sugar free with no alternative sugars. The others have swerve sweetener, but great option!
...best sweet roll in the galaxy, and it's GLUTEN FREE! (What a concept!)
The best I have had in a very long time. The owner has 2 grandchildren with various sensitives and cares deeply about her customers no matter the sensitivity. Made from scratch every day the bakery and lunch items are exceptional. I ordered the Caprese half sandwich and soup and for dessert a snicker doodle and Jai cookie. Here is why you order for delivery or stop by - I was from out of town and was running late for My plane the owner offered to take me to my hotel so I wouldn't miss my flight. Exceptional service, lunch and bakery items.
The entire restaurant offers a wide variety of gluten free food. There is also some nut free dairy free options. They have great samples they have cookies, breads, and the sandwiches are excellent. No gluten is used in the entire place!
Love this place. Pita bread, paleo friendly treats, and hot milk cake ( pound cake) is amazing. Everyone is sweet and knowledgable. Nut free, egg free, dairy free , and gluten free
What a blessing. We we're traveling from NC back home to Texas and I found this page with this app. We had lunch which was great! I took home some goodies which included a caramel chocolate cheesecake. It was Sooooo good. I just ate it ALL!! lol. I recommend this to everyone. celiac or not. They make sugar free, dairy free, and more. I will be taking advantage of their online ordering.
The best GF food that I've ever tasted! Friendly staff, excellent food, (especially the brownies), and I highly recommend it :) Can't wait to go back again, and again.....
Excellent place. Had an amazing mufalata sandwich a and topped off with a sugar cookie. The bread was great. The people are great too. Huge thumbs up!
Wonderful. Loved that I could have anything there. I did not leave hungry. Great people ! The lemon raspberry muffins mmmmm.
Great bakery and tasty stuff. The woman working there was super friendly and really helpful. I was passing through town and was excited to eat lunch here since gf is hard to find in Little Rock but they only serve sandwiches till 2pm so get there early!
Wonderful!!! So amazing! The sandwiches are fantastic and the bread is so good that it sticks to the roof of your mouth...like back in my gluten days...save room because the desserts will knock your socks off! Can't say enough but this family of six says -- thumbs up!
I truly love there cookies. It's great having somewhere to buy food knowing that everything is gluten free.
I stopped here during a business trip and was greeted very warmly by the owner, who answered all of my questions, and I enjoyed a wonderful sandwich and soup in a safe, delicious and inviting setting. Highly recommend.
Friendly service, delicious sandwiches, breads and brownies. Mmmmmm.
This is BY FAR the greatest gluten free bakery I have ever been to. Everything in here is absolutely amazing!!! From lunch to bread, cakes and cookies. Absolutely obsessed!!!! www.glutenfreegirlms.com
Not to sound dramatic ;).. But I nearly cried walking into dempseys for the first time last week. It's the first place I've been where everything there is safe to eat.. And it tastes AMAZING! I had muffuletta and brownie- delicious! I took a load of bread home - it was the first good GF bread we've had. My only wish?? They'd open a location in NLR and expand hours ;)
there baked goods are fabulous! who needs gluten when you have dempsey's bakery!
Loved it!! Must do if you're in Little Rock!
We are on a road trip and we were passing through Little Rock at lunch time so we decided to stop here. One of our best lunch decisions ever. Our 8 year old daughter has Celiacs and she was delighted by all the yummy samples and great lunch choices. She says, "It is the best place ever". If you are anywhere near Little Rock then you must check this wonderful place full of yummy food and great service out!
LOVE IT! Wish I could eat here every day. The sandwiches and soups are good, but the desserts are what make it for me. The egg-free dairy-free chocolate cupcake is the best I've ever had (even before going gluten free). Cookies and breads are amazing and the people are the sweetest ever. I lover that everything is soy-free too and they have lots of egg-free and/or dairy-free options too.
Dempsey bakery is gluten,wheat,soy and nut free. Everything is made fresh and from scratch They have delicious breads, sweets,cakes and many more. They make custom cakes for birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings. They also have lunch from 11-2 every day. The bakery was just recognized by "Delight" magazine as one of the best GF bakeries in America, Feb 2013 and was runner up as the best bakery in Little Rock by The Arkansas Times, Readers Choice!
excellent food, beautiful cakes. Wish the prices were a bit lower, not everyone with celiac disease can afford the prices. But fortunately my sibling can, so I can enjoy the cakes/breads/etc. on occasion.
Best food Hands down!! Lunches amazing & everything from the bakery will not disappoint!! Every city needs a Dempsey!!
This is the most awesome, attentive establishment! You can't go wrong. Be patient when ordering, it's so wonderful that the news has spread and sometimes there is a wait for lunch. Quality over quantity here is a huge plus!
SOooooo good!! They have tons of samples, so you can try before you buy. The pumpkin bread is wonderful!
We went to the Dempsey Bakery on the advise of my sister. She is gluten intolerant. She raved about the place and we wanted to check it out for ourselves. We arrived at 9:00. They don't open until 10:00. We were devastated, because we were on a schedule. The owner and genius behind the bakery, Paula came to the door. She said we could come in, but they didn't have all the samples out yet. SAMPLES! We tried everything! My favorite is the Hot Milk Cake. It is like a pound cake, but lighter - melts on your mouth! We were delighted with the cookies, cakes and bread. And they ship! If you are in Arkansas - go by the Dempsey Bakery! It is between the Clinton Museum and the state Capitol. Ten stars!!!!
We were just passing through on a road trip and found this little gem. What a wonderful place that has cakes,cookies, bread and more! We just loved it! I wish we had one at home! I think if you go you will not be disappointed and the owner is a real sweetie. Enjoy!!
A few months ago I decided to "go gluten free". I definitely would not have taken the leap without knowing about all the delicious gluten free items available at Dempsey Bakery in Little Rock. I especially love all the sweets: cookies , cupcakes, and beautifully decorated cakes. Dempsey's is a family run business started by a Mom / Nana of a family with first hand experience with food sensitivities and the benefits that can be had just by modifying your diet. She believed so strongly in this, that she decided to hire a baker, spend a year researching and developing delicious recipes, and open Dempsey Bakery. I highly recommend that anyone with food sensitivities in or around Little Rock give them a try. Their menu and daily specials are at http://www.dempseybakery.com.
The best gluten free bakery I've been to yet! I travel all over the country and this is some of the best gluten free bread I've ever had. I actually had to ask the owner if it was gluten free (which she confirmed resoundingly)! Their deli menu changes regularly and is growing. Their primary focus is baked goods, so stop by for some bread and have a sandwich while you are there. They research every ingredient in great detail. I like that they have little plates in front of the breads for sampling the breads...and they don't look at you funny if you have seconds!
Wonderful baked goods and bread products for those who are gluten free.
