    Lots of gluten free foods available but not much in the way of baked hoofs except frozen pizza and frozen bread, and frozen muffins. They do have one delight Amy's gluten free Mac and cheese...it is to die for. It is in the freezer section. The Annie's Mac and cheese is very watery with little cheese flavor, I add shredded cheddar to the sauce mix for a cheesier flavor. Tends to be expensive, but you do get what you pay for!

    I found very few items offered that were gluten free, besides the obvious, rice cakes and tortilla chips, I did find Udi's bread and rolls. But I was disappointed with the lack of gluten free products.

    I love this bakery. I started going there for my nephew who has a tree nut allergy , so when I went gluten free I knew where to go. My favorite offering is the ricotta biscuits, everyone in my family loves them. We had their cupcakes for a birthday celebration and no one knew they were gluten free, although as with most gluten free cakes they were a little heavier than regular cupcakes. I don't understand the complaints about the service, I have always been served politely. As for the offerings being stale I came upon the last bag of ricotta biscuits and they were a little dryer than the very new ones, but it only happened one time and I am there weekly. So glad A&J decided to go gluten free, as well as nut free, since I've developed a tree nut allergy too! Since going gluten free I have not had a migraine, I used to have 3 per week. A&J keeps me on the straight and narrow without sacrificing baked goods!

    Our order taker didn't know if they had corn tortillas except for taco shells, another worker had to tell her...after that everything was fine, we were able to find gluten free options that satisfied. I thought they could have used more choices in their dishes, but everything was tasty and not expensive.

    Went to Ted's for the first time this week and what a pleasure. Real food. The grilled asparagus were delicious as were the mashed garlic potatoes. But the best was the bison. Delicate flavor, tender, juicy, and left me feeling "lighter" than when I eat beef. Not a problem with finding meals to satisfy and gluten free...didn't have dessert, too full!

    I went to Wildflour bakery because of the referral from this app. Others seem to find it wonderful, I must disagree. There were few gluten free offerings, cupcakes, brownies, and a raspberry brownie and some corn bread. I ordered on piece of cornbread and two cupcakes, the total was over $8. The cornbread was ok, dense and chewy, which I liked. The cupcake, well lets just say I was very disappointed. I dint know what the frosting was made from but as soon as I got to the car the icing started melting..it was all runny by the time I got home. The flavor of the cupcake was odd, I think it was supposed to be lemon vanilla, but neither of the flavors were strong enough to push through the dense soggy cake. Will not be returning. I will stick with A & J bakery in Cranston.
