  • A&J Bakery

    5 starsJanuary 02, 2014

    1458 Park Ave, Cranston, RI 02920

    Love A&J Bakery. When the normal close-to-home options are getting boring, this is the remedy! They have EVERYTHING... and if they somehow don't make what you're looking for yet, chances are they are working on it and will soon. We especially love the chocolate chip cookies (OMG BEST EVER), pie crusts (the best we've found), and pizza dough. The ginger molasses cookies are, oddly, our favorites - even though we wouldn't have guessed we liked either ginger or molasses all that much if you asked. They're moist, chewy, and amazing.

    Staff is super knowledgeable, and changes gloves between customers by default when you mention you need to eat GF. Everything is GF except for the flour tortillas. YES, you can even have the on-site fried tortilla chips - the fryer is a dedicated one. This is the single cheapest healthy and satisfying GF option we have found near home. We go here All The Time.

    Rasoi is amazing! I'm shocked to see that no one else has mentioned yet that the brunch buffet on Saturdays is 100% gluten free! It's sooooo good. Pretty much everything here is the best version we've had of it at any Indian restaurant....and I am completely obsessed with Indian food, so that's saying a lot. I love to see a family business doing so well for their customers and their community.

  • Wildflour Vegan Bakery & Juice Bar

    Lots of options. Yummy but expensive. I agree that the cupcakes are the worst of their offerings, and after we tried each kind once, we are pretty sure they're all horrible, and that it has to do with the fundamental composition of what's going into all the cupcakes. (Same complaints as others have had - frosting is really funky, probably because it's all vegetable shortening - and cupcake is dense, dry, and doesn't taste like what it's advertised as.) The brownie is to die for, though. And the muffins, sweet breads, tarts, bars, and cakes in non-cup form are all good. We aren't vegan. Maybe you aren't either. If we *were* vegan, then maybe even the GF cupcakes would seem good? The hot drinks and juices that involve cayenne pepper are amazing. Especially if you're feeling like you're about to come down with a cold, or have a sinus infection.

    They served my husband his gluten free burger from the gluten free menu on a regular, gluten-filled, standard wheat roll. After taking a couple bites that seemed too good to be true, we asked if it was indeed a gluten free bun, hoping that it was and that they had found some magical method / source for making the most amazing GF buns ever. They said that no, it probably wasn't a GF bun, but they could check. The manager came and informed him that it was not a GF bun at all. They didn't seem to understand the gravity of what they had done. When we stressed that yes, it was a really big deal, they then said could put that same burger (contaminated with the bread it was on before) on the toast they usually use when people order things gluten free, if he wanted. They pointed out that the fries (that had also been touching the wheat roll) were gluten free, so he could still eat those. They also offered him gluteny malt vinegar to put on them, further demonstrating their cluelessness. They don't understand what it means to have Celiac's disease or a gluten intolerance. They were basically saying that since he didn't get "red and puffy" (their words) like someone would with a shellfish or peanut allergy, that he must be fine and it must be no big deal. They had a theoretically great menu with lots of choices, but it's completely pointless to have this if the staff still serves food that puts the health of their customers at risk risk. It's fine to not be able to cater to customers who have to eat gluten free. Most places can't. The problem with this place is that they say they do, but actually the waitstaff and kitchen staff have no idea, and do not serve the food the menu promises. There are plenty of other places in North Attleborough that do a great job of serving gluten free food, and live up to the promises of their menus. We'll be sticking to those.

    We go here regularly. They are meticulous about keeping their GF food GF. There's a huge menu of GF options - equal in size to the regular menu. They're super friendly. We love everything about this place. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • Singapore Chinese Restaurant & Bar

    I got all excited to hear about a standard Chinese restaurant nearby serving GF food...but I called the number listed here today, and it was out of service. 3 stars because I don't intend to actually rate, just provide info.
