I have not eaten here, but have enjoyed the bakery items. I come here because I have a friend who is gluten intolerant. Of course no restaurant can please everyone. But to write a review should never be to hinder someone's business, but to speak about the good you found, If you have something about it that did not please you, then of course speak freely. But never to the point where it would turn someone away.
So confused as to how there are so many good reviews for this establishment. Have tried it over the years a few times; for the restaurant, market and bakery. Did not find the food in the meals my family got all that good, especially for the high prices. It's a fact that I do cook and bake gluten free quite (well, I must admit) a bit, but don't find the food here to be of restaurant quality. The bakery items were so-so and again overpriced and I think overrated. As far as the grocery items go, you can get them all at your local nearby grocery stores, health food store, and Trader Joes much cheaper with bigger variety and stock.
Discovered this little gem while traveling and I wish I had a place like this near home! I was able to eat GF French toast, and I tried their GF muffins, donuts and cookies, all of which were phenomenal! In addition to a quaint little sit-down area, there is a bakery and packaged GF foods you'd find at the grocery store. This place has it all in addition to a wonderful staff! I wish they would expand across New England!
It's been a summer staple of mine for 2 years. Unfortunately they are closing in December (as a restaurant) and moving their bakery to a new location.
Absolutely awesome! Great homemade gluten-free/dairy free bread, excellent donuts. Breakfast was amazing!
I can not say enough good things! You must try their own rolls! I have looked long and hard for rolls good enough for a breakfast sandwich and these are it. I would eat lunch here everyday when working in Latham !
Great gf retail area. Breakfast was ok. Nothing outrageous but it was really great that we could order anything. My son loves the rolls.
Slow slow slow. No a/c. It's ok if you don't mind eating in 85 degree room. Market part is cool. Lots of stuff. Food tastes awesome.
The first time I took my 11 year old daughter to Sherry Lynn's she wouldn't believe she could have anything on the menu and kept asking about each item. The look of joy on her face when she realized I wasn't kidding was priceless. The food is typical café/pub fare, burgers, sandwiches and pizza. I have had really great burgers there, she wasn't as psyched with the pizza, but we both loved the mozzarella sticks, which are huge. Definitely plan on waiting a bit and make sure you get dessert. Love the cranberry bars!
THE BEST gluten free bread anywhere, and the only bread I'll eat!! And gluten free pastries, pizza, and and and......I had tears in my eyes when I sat down the first time and realized I could order ANYTHING on the menu! No place even comes close to this! Only wish they were open 7 days a week and for dinner, but everyone deserves some time off!
Awesome place. Some off the best bread we have ever had.
Traveled across the country searching for gluten free food and this is the best of the best! Go on the weekends for fresh donuts!!
Sherry Lynn, Howie and their children have devoted their lives to helping the gluten free community at large and they provide a safe haven for celiacs and gluten-intolerants to enjoy home- cooked meals, baked goods and an opportunity to meet other celiacs for comraderie. The Birches embrace everyone like family. They have donated their time, food and energy to various causes and organizations. (but no one ever hears about those good deeds) They are a family run business and they do not have dozens of employees, so perhaps it does take a little time to make larger food orders from scratch, but we have never waited very long for service and a smile.. If you want food made in a totally dedicated environment, safe from any cross contamination, well, this is the place. The food is reliably delicious, the baked goods are awesome and the Birches would do anything they could for someone newly diagnosed to get a handle on living a gluten free life. Tons of foods to choose from in the freezers and on the shelves. WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE SHERRY LYNN'S. The mac and cheese is creamy and delicious. The chicken salad is wonderfully fresh and the burgers are juicy. Every single member of my family loves Sherry Lynn's. I have tried baking my own rolls (and buying every commercial brand available) and no one's come close to Sherry's light and squishy rolls. The muffins, the rolls, those donuts from heaven!! But, the carrot cake cupcakes with frosting...oh man, those are my favorite! These are not goodies I would make at home, so I am delighted to have them available to me. The Birches--are a gift to the celiac/GF community. A fellow celiac from the NYC vacinity told me NO ONE --even the best NYC bakeries--makes apple fitters like Sherry does. No ONE. Go there and enjoy!
After all the glowing reviews, I was more than a bit disappointed with this place. The market section has a nice selection of brands and items but nothing I haven't seen in other stores. We also ate in the cafe, which was our biggest disappointment. The food for my family of 4 took over 50 minutes to come out, with no visit or follow-up from the waitstaff. The mozzarella sticks were wonderful -- what a GF treat! But the mac and cheese was mediocre at best...my 3-year-old, who had never met a mac and cheese she didn't like, wouldn't eat more than one bite (I tried it and found it ok but nothing special). I still give 3 stars for the groceries, but I wouldn't revisit the cafe.
Awesome place all around. EXTREMELY knowledgeable and compliant with GF. Their cafe is wonderful. Their baked goods are amazing. LOVE the pizza crust. Oh and the Biaglut pasta they carry is THE best GF pasta I have had yet. I served it to guests and no one knew it until after they ate and they were all shocked. Oh.. if you go there and they have their macaroni and cheese in the cafe.. .do NOT leave there without having some even if you are not hungry. I live in Florida but am from the Albany area and I make it a point never to miss stopping in to Sherry Lynn's. I hear they may be expanding to Florida too!
Wonderful food! The bread was great, I brought home a loaf & made my French Toast for the first time in 6 months! You should go!
AMAZING owner operated establishment, 100% gluten free, best food anywhere, diner prices and extremely friendly staff. Because all naked goods, sauces, etc ate made on sight they can also inform and accommodate those of us with other good allergies as well. Nest gf pizza I've ever had! Open Monday through Saturday until 5pm
Apple cider donuts were amazing.
I had been to a wedding where the bride got me a gf cheesecake from here and I had always wanted to go there. I was going to a local establishment with my kids and they didn't do any gluten-free. I planned my trip so I could stop here first. It was an awesome experience!!! I ordered a grilled turkey panini and it was so yummy! I never get the chance to buy tasty gf baked goods!! I was so excited. Next time I am going to order some stuff ahead of time. I highly recommend it. It was a great experience!!! Thank you Sherry Lynn!!! Sincerely, Sherry Lyon.
Dedicated gluten free. Menu has a great variety of options. Baked goods are a nice treat but can be a little too sweet.
This place is awesome!! My husband is gf, kids and I are not, and still, we all like the food here.
I cannot say enough great things about Sherry Lynns. this restaurant is a home away from home with no worries about the food! the place is family owned and are extremely warm and very knowledgeable about gf. Sherry Lynn is gf herself! Highly recommended especially if you're visiting the area or live here!
Sherry Lynn and Howie are awesome!! Great GF food. Anything and everything GF that you could ever dream of.
