The store has a lot of variety so picked several items. The pretzel buns were flavorful but incredibly dense and crumbley. The vanilla cupcake itself tasted more like corn bread with a gritty dense texture. The chocolate cookie sandwich was described to be like an Oreo which was kind of accurate. While it's amazing to have a dedicated GF bakery to choose from, all of the baked goods were lacking in some form.
In Denver this is the only 100% GF bakery that has ever been worth going to. They are expensive and could do better but I'm just excited to have a safe place to get some carbs!! I love their bagels and scones and I used get my bread here. They seem to do better at savory. The sweets are hit or miss; the cakes are tasteless bean flour topped with sickening sweet, crystalized icing. But their cinnamon roll is perfect! I love the owner and the staff is very sweet! I hope they continue to grow and improve! I wish they used better eggs and dairy and expanded their meal choices to something worth eating. I work down the street; I'd be there everyday if they served a good GF sub!!
The cake pops are a new favorite! Really nice staff and lots of variety.
love the variety. being gluten/dairy free, I was in heaven with options. great place to pick up a sweet treat!!
more like a negative 5 our bakery goods are hard as rocks (I prefer sift cupcakes and cookies), they are tiny, and EXPENSIVE. Drive to Colorado Springs And get fresh food, larger portions, for a decent price. And, just as an FYI to the owners, if you want to run an allergy friendly restaurant, you might consider having a few more nut free items. waste of time, waste of money and, it is merely a bakery. When I read breakfast, I think bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, etc OMG this is AWFUL. Not sure what they grind for flour, but my guess is dirty rocks. RUN from this place
Not impressed with the cake at all it is too dense and tastes like corn bread
Very knowledgeable and helpful. Everything is gluten free. Brownies are the best in town!! Even has all the stuff you need for Thanksgiving!
Just tasted their GF apple pie - Better than mom used to make. I didn't know that was possible!
I have been gluten free for quite some time and frequent GF bakeries. Was not impressed at all with the Blondie and brownie. No taste factor at all. Maybe other products such as breads and pastries are better but unfortunately I did not like the items I had.
Food was not very good.
What a great GF bakery with Celiac safe kitchen. Lots of options here ranging from cupcakes, cookies, 5280 award winning brownies, cakes, breads and grab and go items plus bagels, cinnamon rolls, donuts and more. I'm Celiac and have been going here last 2 years with no issues. Everything is delicious and made from scratch with only the best ingredients. If you're anywhere in Denver, its worth the trip!
Wonderful place, safe, friendly, KNOWLEDGEABLE.
Wish the ingredients in the cakes/cupcakes were healthier. But loved the blueberry muffin at gnarly root!! They are good products!!
oh wow! these folks ROCK!! I just ate part of the rootbeer flavor cake and it is unbelievably DELICIOUS!! a yummy treat. you would never think it was gluten free. I wish I lived in the Denver area, this was so good! also the Mexican pecan cookie that I ate before driving away. It will take all my will power to not gobble up the other 2 generous size pieces of cake I purchased this morning.
Don't pass this place up. Amazing. And staff is super helpful. Finally someplace to get lunch and dessert and no worries of cross contamation. Haven't had a gluten free pie in 5 yrs. can wait to bake it.
AMAZING!!!! So excited to find a dedicated gf bakery. Wish they were located in my state. Baked fresh daily and free of tons of preservities. Non gluten free people would never taste the difference. Quality place and awesome customer service.
EVERYTHING is gluten free! I had a really yummy blondie and a turkey sandwich! This will be on my weekly rotation
We are from out of state and found the Gluten Escape located near our hotel. This place is 100% gluten free and the staff was very helpful. I have celiac disease and have been gf for 10 years. This bakery was so fun to walk into and find so many options in the fresh baked displays, the fridge, and the freezer. We bought a little of almost everything including pre made sandwiches to take on our road trip home.
Excellent selection, service & quality. What a blessing!
Bakery items were delicious. Wish they offered made to order sandwiches. When we arrived they were sold out of premade sandwiches :(
So nice to have so many GF and DF options. Tried bars, cupcakes, scones, and bread. Favorites were the Caper Parsley Ciabatta (broiled with olive oil) and black forest brownie.
Glorious!! Brownies, cookies, cupcakes. Repeat customer BEFORE I was diagnosed with celiac. Ironic, huh? It's delicious and the owners rock.
Hoping the remodel/move is open soon! We have made three junkets from Lakewood to what my family calls, "The GREAT GLUTEN ESCAPE!" My wife has been a paleo-vegan for 2 1/2 years now and finding this place by accident, while at the Player's Bench hockey store, was a godsend. Each time we visited, we spent about $60 bucks. We got sweet treats, donuts, cupcakes and brownies. But what really impressed my wife were the quality and flavor of the non-sweet breads! "Fantastic they were," said Yoda! The place was clean ans smelled great! On each of our three visits, a different staff person spent all the time we needed to answer our questions and make suggestions. The G.G.E. is an oasis for my wife and my family and very much worth the drive! Out of this galaxy!
Amazing bakery totally dedicated to delicious GF desserts and pastries! I bought some strawberry champagne and lemon blueberry cupcakes for a wedding and they were perfect!
Chocolate donuts are wonderful!
Out of towner that's over the moon with a dedicated GF bakery. BEST chocolate cupcake I have had in a LONG time.
this place is family owned and very knowledgeable. I will definately go back many times
I'm from out of town, found this place online, and did not regret it. Many different dedicated gluten free options, all very tasty. Had donuts and a cinnamon bun for breakfast the first day, and had to go back to stock up before leaving town. Owner is very nice, cares deeply about her business. I just wish they had a place this good close to my house. Then I'd be here all the time.
Awesome. lots of delicious options
Very poor management! Order hot cross buns only to find out that not only were they not cooked they were frozen. We had asked what special they had for easter and indicated this was a good choice. Very disappointed and when asked if they could cook them they said the CV would not. What is the purpose of a bakery if I have to cook it myself. They wreck my morning had to spend all morning to find someplace that has baked goods already cooked that
Awful! I am gluten free and work in DTC. Was very excited to try this place so close to work. I had the red velvet cake cupcake and it was awful. The cupcake was tiny and over priced. The frosting and cupcake itself was gritty in texture and oily. Very very oily. It tasted more like white cake with food coloring. I can make better cupcakes at home with a GF mix. I will not be going back.
Delicious! We tried a bunch of stuff. Cookies, bagels, brownies and cookie bars and all was amazing!!
This place is amazing! I've been there a few times and it's located right off Tamarac (225 and 25), which makes it a really convenient location if I'm coming from Denver or Aurora. Having been off gluten for a couple years now, I've been on a constant search for GF items that taste like the stuff I used to be able to eat, that won't make me violently ill, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. First of all, the bagels are the real deal. There are the traditional flavors, and then a cool citrus/everything combo that I was hesitant to try, but it turned out to be actually amazing. If you get there earlier in the day, they have a basket of "day old" bagels at a reduced price. The rosemary sliced bread is the size of traditional bread (not like the frozen stuff you find at the grocery store made for dolls). I've found that if you freeze it, then put in the microwave for 15 seconds on each side, it warms up nice and soft just like it originally came and much better than putting it in the toaster. It also doesn't start coming apart in a weird stringy mess like another GF bread found in the Denver area. The blueberry muffins are really more like a treat with a yummy frosting drizzled on top. It was a little more dense than I was expecting, but it was good! I tried the Snickerdoodle cookie and it was great (I needed a cookie fix after my rock hard GF Girl Scout cookie disaster), The German Chocolate Brownie got a little messy, but it was worth it. The business doesn't allow outside food/beverages to help prevent cross-contamination, which is great, and they even have lunch there!
Wish they used alternatives to coconut
My mom and daughter and I stopped here, we tried the cookies, cupcakes, donuts, and brownies and we liked them all, our favorite was the cranberry orange cupcake! Yum!!!
Amazing bagels. Pass on the cinnamon rolls tho
We were driving across the country and made a point to stop here. I had a delicious onion bagel with chai tea, then got a bunch of cookies, cupcakes, brownies and cake pops to go. It was wonderful knowing everything was totally me-safe :)
Delicious pretzel chocolate chip bars, amazing pumpkin donuts! Very moist and tasty. Also tried the grain free sugar free bread which was very light and had a fluffy texture, very good toasted! Had a cinnamon roll a whole back that I didn't love (a little hard) but everything else has been fantastic.
This bakery is delicious!
Amazing baked goods. Loved the cakes & cupcakes, need to try the bread next!
I had tried several items including cookies, cupcakes, sandwich bread and bread sticks. Very tasty, great service. Can't put a price on health.
Cinnamon rolls! This place is awesome!
Great cookies and blondies! I visited on a Friday afternoon and there were many options. The cupcake I had was rather dry, but my husband's flavor was moist. Regardless, 100% piece of mind is a wonderful thing. I also like how many things are not in the baked goods and will gladly sacrifice texture for gf and df.
best bakery I've been to
Amazing baked goods. so many options including vegan. The texture is perfect. And the people are very knowledgeable.
I wasn't overly impressed with the cupcakes or the muffins. the dark chocolate brownies, which were supposed to have a fudge like quality, were not quite. they were decent, however. it is nice that everything is dairy free.
This place is amazing. I drive 30 minutes to get here twice a week. The bagels, sandwich bread, and muffins are better than anything that I've ever had with gluten in it. Also, the owner is very accommodating and will specially make you things if you can't have a particular ingredient that is used in the regular recipe.
Excellent allergen free bakery! Very friendly staff. Willing to work with you on whatever food allergy you have. Great tasting treats. The brownies are awesome!!!
I've tried various items from this place several times and the only thing I have liked is the frosting on the cupcakes. The buns I tried were extremely heavy and dry, the cupcakes were grainy, the cinnamon rolls were dry and had a weird flavor and the cookies were extremely dry and sandy. Every item I have tried has been thrown away. I do not recommend this place, do yourself a favor and buy a box mix from the grocery store and make the items yourself...not only cheaper, but will taste far better!
