    I love the atmosphere of this cafe. There is a constantly rotating selection of gluten free baked goodies. The flavors are wholesome and gourmet- if you want a muffin that replicates white flour and cheap ingredients, no it's not like that. It's a yummy blueberry muffin where you can taste the fresh grains as well as the fruit, and I enjoy that. If you don't like it the cookies taste more mainstream, but they still taste like real ingredients. Again, this store does not replicate a grocery store cheapo glutenful baked good, but why would you want that? That doesn't reflect the flavor of the area anyways. There are cookies, muffins, and a super flaky yummy pastry in their current rotation that is textured like a danish or croissant made out of wheat, but it has a more complex yummy flavor profile. Can't be beat. I also love the extensive variety of teas available here- they also sell coffee and wine but I don't care about those too much. There is an indoor cafe area, an outdoor picnic vibe area, and a top loft restaurant area. Overall I truly enjoyed my visit. Their kitchen is not 100% gluten free and is not safe for full Celiac's, but they do make efforts to minimize contamination so anyone up to that will be perfectly safe.

    Blueberry gluten free muffin wasn't very good. I threw the rest out.

    According to a review on, the manager told a patron that they don't try to avoid cross-contamination etc. they make GF foods with GF ingredients but without efforts to avoid cross-contamination, the food may not really be GF. And shame on Northside for not making this clearer.
