    I'm not positive who helped me, I think it was the owner, but they we so very helpful. I like to stock up on baked good since I don't have a gluten free bakery anywhere near where I live and luckily this place is only ten minutes from my work! The woman who helped me was very patient and gave me great tips on keeping the bread fresh, as well as some recipe ideas. I will be visiting this bakery often, especially when I get my sweet tooth cravings!! Cupcakes are to die for!

    The gf menu was great. It wasn't extensive, but I had plenty of options. The fact that they carried gf beer here is a major plus. I got the salmon, and it was just melt in your mouth fantastic. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars was that our server didn't seem like he was knowledgeable at all about their designated gf menu.

    The cupcakes get 5 stars. They are just amazing and I stocked up, since I live in an area that has zero gf sweets options--- unless I make them myself. The staff were super nice as well, which that combined with cupcake bliss, is the only reason I gave 4 instead of 3 stars. The prices on their groceries were outrageous. I went to trader joes and purchased Udis bread for $3.99 and it was over $6 at this bakery! All of their items are super inflated like that. I fully understand rent is probably pretty high for that part of town, but I don't think I'll be going their again for anything more than their amazing cupcakes.

    The gf bread here is, hands down, the best gf sandwich bread I have has this far. I got it with the "sometimes I'm a vegetarian" and it was amazing. Best gf sammie I've had. Thanks Ike's for being so good to us who suffer from celiac and just want to enjoy a damn good deli sandwich.

    This place was awesome! The staff were extremely friendly and gave me a well laid out allergen menu, clearly identifying items containing gluten. I have not been able to have a gourmet burger WITH a bun in forever! The bun itself was very good too. Sometimes I find it very difficult to find gluten free bread products that don't make me sad... They have a separate fryer, so I was able to have french fries too, which were delicious! I will definitely come back. Only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because my burger with the gf bun an two add ons was $11.00. Other than the price --AMAZING!
