    I found the bakery to be VERY expensive. I'm pretty sure I paid $9 for a loaf of bread. I bought a specialty bread - cinnamon bread (if I recall). It was okay toasted. I also bought cupcakes. I found the cupcakes to be dry and the frosting to taste like lard or Crisco. Not impressed with this bakery. They also over charged me and I had to go back to get my money back, and both wound up on my credit card for a few days, but then worked out.

    I would give the loaf of bread here 5 stars without a doubt, but not everything else lives up to the standard set by the bread. I mean, all the other things I've tried have been really good, but some have an aftertaste. It is a great feeling, though, to walk in to a bakery & have so many options & not have to worry about cross-contamination! And everyone who works there is really nice--an added bonus.

    Too sweet and oily for our three gluten free family members' liking. Staff is friendly and it's a pleasure to walk into a completely gfree facility. However, the products we bought were really high in sugar.

    The best GF I have had. A bit pricy but everything is excellent. I would venture to say better than most things pre-GF life too. You won't feel like you're missing out on anything

    So yummy! I thoroughly enjoyed the lemon cupcake and "remedy" brownie/cookie bar. The store is adorable, and the service delightful. If you have food allergies and crave something sweet, this is the place!!

    Very friendly staff that made me feel very welcome being my first time there, offering free samples and allowing me to take my time. They had so many yummy options to choose from... From hamburger buns to lemon bars!

    Their dedication to maintaining allergy free protocol is unsurpassed. With high expectations, we drove far out of our way and found this lovely little bakery. Darn good variety for such a specialty shop. Unfortunately their baked goods were dry, flavorless and expensive. Don't get me wrong, I'm exceedingly pleased this bakery exists to make gorgeous allergy free birthday and wedding cakes. But I won't be returning until I need that wedding cake. I've been GF for 8 years now, so I'm not comparing to glutened bakery items.

    They have the BEST bread I've ever had in my entire life! They even made my 22nd birthday cake and all my friends and family had second servings!

    This is a very good bakery! As a Celiac's and dairy free Mom, I very much appreciate the dependability and attention to food allergens detail, it relieves much of the stress and worry that you might have at other places from ordering something that could potentially make your child sick if they don't pay attention. No worries about cross contamination here! Also, the cakes are decorated beautifully and taste wonderful! We had a large birthday cake done for a campout, and everyone loved it, not even realizing it was gluten free! We have tried cupcakes, brownies and breads too, and each has been quite good. The things we have gotten do not taste commercial to us, and I make a lot of homemade foods, so we are not used to commercial. Overall, the service is excellent, the food is worry-free and quite good. I highly recommend them!

    Good, but not stellar. Taste like gluten free a decade ago. They need to up the ante a bit

    I really wish I had better things to say about this bakery. We visit GF bakeries all over the country- some are awesome, some are a waste of money. So sorry to say but we spent $40 so we could try a little of everything and everything was a dissapointment. Everything had a weird sponginess to it that we did not enjoy at all. It was very commercial- kinda like a gf vegan version of Von's baked goods. But if you like that type of baked good you might really enjoy this place. Staff was super friendly though and the place had a line of customers so clearly a lot of people do like it.

    Excellent bakery! I've gotten many of their goods, and believe it or not, they taste even better than their "glutened" equivalent, or at least how I remember them. Excellent friendly service; they make you feel like part of their family. Anyway, if you're GF, or have just about any other food allergy, this is a must-stop if you're in the neighborhood.

    I can't get enough of their cupcakes and cake pops. Would love to try more but can't pry myself away from those. I go almost every Friday to get a weekend treat. A bit pricey, but they are the best I've had and I never have to it is worth it in the end. Look for coupons...

    The best Gluten Free bakery, bar none! We had the apple crumb cake and had to go back for seconds! Cute shop and excellent customer service. Go for the cupcakes but don't stop there, too many other great things to try!

    The cupcakes are very moist! I haven't tried the bread or pizza mix yet but heard it was great. I look forward to trying more of their selections.
