    Not great for people with tummy sensitivities on top of gluten allergies. They use a lot of yeast in their dough, which makes me feel lethargic. I wish I could eat their goodies!

    This bakery has everything! I can't eat dairy soy or gluten and I had so many options! Had a bagel and a Danish and both were delicious, also got a vanilla strawberry cake which was good, too. The bagel and Danish were so close to the "real" thing! You have to go to this place. They also had focaccia, challah, muffins, etc.

    This is hands down the best sandwich bread I've ever had. Really everything so far has been delicious. I am glad to have vegan options but I'm surprised at how much dairy they use... Why no Daiya cheese for pizzas? Sometimes I feel like the vegan options are an afterthought, like those options just happen to be vegan. Why no vegan "rye" bread? I love this place and am glad I've never gotten sick, but the luster has worn off a bit (oh, the privilege of being so near to a truly gf bakery!) and now I'd like to see more vegan options. Also, I recently found a giant hair in a yummy tart and it really bummed me out.

    It's so fun to go somewhere you can get anything! I've had some amazing things and some ok things. Best things have been the salted caramel cupcake, the pumpkin whoopie pie, & the German chocolate cake. All of these were fantastic & tasted normal! I love the ever changing items, I'm always trying something new.

    AMAZING. I was only visiting the area but decided to check this place out, and wow it did not disappoint. The lemon poppyseed and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins were delicious, and the texture was so unlike GF stuff I get anywhere else. The loaf of bread I got was actually soft! Also got apricot danish and nutmeal raisin cookies, which were delicious. Other products I saw were bagels, crackers, croutons, cinnamon rolls, and cakes. They ship all over the country so I will definitely be looking into that.

    What more can be said that hasn't already? Mariposa is amazing. The lunch items are super fun and the desserts are ultra tasty. Prep times for prepared food are generally slow, so don't assume you can zip in and out (although you might be able to!), but I love them anyway. :-)

    Such delicious GF goodies. Plus they have GF and vegan treats for those with multiple sensitivities. I was very excited to find their cream-filled cupcakes in Whole Foods in Lafayette so I don't have to drive far to get my fix.

    Fantastic crackers, burger buns, and brownies. I'm not a fan of their pizza crusts and their prices can be a bit high. If you see gnocchi grab it as it disappears for months.

    Awesome. Can't beat a 100% GF establishment. The chocolate chip cookies, beet ball subs, pizzas, and soft pretzels are my current favs. As with most GF food, it is more pricey than average food, but I would rather pay the premium for super safe treats. THANK YOU MARIPOSA!!!

    I love their beet burger and chocolate chip cookies. My only complaint is I wish they served a meat burger!

    my favorite place ever!! I've been going here since I got diagnosed with Celiacs. The Chocolate Pinguinos are to die for and the take home and bake cheese and margarita pizzas are too. They just opened a restraunt in the Ferry building in San Francisco march2012. Its open 7 days a week. All of their breads and cookies are great too. Also you can find their products in whole foods.

    Mariposa is a strictly gluten free bakery that serves freshly made bread, baguettes, pizza, pasta, cakes, and pastries. They also serve various gfree food items for breakfast and lunch as well as offer grab n' go sandwiches if you just want to pop in and get out for a quick on the go lunch. These sell quickly though, so if you're planning to stop by and grab some lunch, it's best to come early! They also have a bread schedule so if you want a particular type of bread you can either come in that day or pre-order what you want. Breads include: baguettes, sandwich rolls, sandwich bread, focaccia, multi-grain bread, hot dog buns, rosemary rolls, and cinnamon raisin bread. We were able to try some samples, provided very generously by the owner and founder of Mariposa, and I can tell you now that the samples were so good, you can't tell it's gfree! Let me just say, their bread is INCREDIBLE! The texture is just like regular gluten filled artisan bread and the dough is soft and chewy-the way artisan bread should be. Their chocolate chip cookies are to die for. Seriously. We heard from the owner that the chocolate chip cookie recipe was being continuously tweaked for 5 years until they finally got the right balance of chewy and crunchy. That was probably the best chocolate chip cookie I've ever had!

    Love this bakery. Food is top notch. amazing beetloaf sandwich our pizza by the slice for lunch. Delicious tarts and bagels and muffins for breakfast. The nutmeal raisin cookie is yummy, so is their carrot cake. The only problem is they are so popular that their staff can't quite keep up. During busy times, the water jug is always empty and food can take awhile. I go there daily when I'm in the bay area though.
