    AMAZING. I was only visiting the area but decided to check this place out, and wow it did not disappoint. The lemon poppyseed and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins were delicious, and the texture was so unlike GF stuff I get anywhere else. The loaf of bread I got was actually soft! Also got apricot danish and nutmeal raisin cookies, which were delicious. Other products I saw were bagels, crackers, croutons, cinnamon rolls, and cakes. They ship all over the country so I will definitely be looking into that.

    Good BBQ place in Old Town. They do have a pretty good GF menu, including appetizers, ribs, brisket, chicken, sauces, and sides. However, it does not include any desserts. The baby back ribs I got were pretty good, but I wouldn't say outstanding. The sauces all seemed rather unexciting to me.

    Delicious fries that are GF. They don't have onion rings or other cross-contamination hazards from frying. Everything is GF except the buns.

    Great Mexican restaurant with several solid GF options. Fajitas with corn tortillas are excellent, as well as the pollo en salsa, and several other meat/chicken/seafood dishes. And I believe the enchiladas are corn tortillas as well, but ask about that. Guacamole is great, and I have had no issues at all with the chips. Flan and a flourless chocolate cake on the dessert menu, although I haven't tried either. Finally, the margaritas are amazing! The staff is also very nice. There's a larger location a few blocks north, but I like the cozier atmosphere of this one.

    Excellent. Extensive GF menu, including bread so just about any sandwich/burger can be made GF. The rosemary garlic chicken is wonderful. They also have a couple GF beers. One problem though was they had fries on the GF menu, but they do not have a dedicated fryer (?) so ask/watch out for that. Non-GF aspects: nice atmosphere, especially if you can sit by the fireplace, but it is rather loud every time I go here so be prepared for that. Overall definitely recommended.
