Monkey muffins are seriously the best muffin I have had in the Lehigh Valley! Banana chocolate chips and coconut, cant go wrong there. They also have flourless peanut butter cookies that are delicious as well as almond cherry energy bars and gluten free quiche item that I have always seen as also vegetarian. I would add that they do bake wheat items in this store and with any other shop, unless completely gluten free, flour can be airborne so it would be best to use your own tolerance as a guide. I have never witnessed cross contamination from their baker, you can clearly see her working. I have eaten here many of times and they have always been polite and answer our questions but some workers aren't as knowledgeable as others.
Cute place. We asked a lot of questions about what they offer that is gluten-free. We went further in our talk to check their knowledge of cross-contamination. They said they do take precautions to sanitize items between uses. They also bake items with wheat flour, so it will come down to your comfort level with the risk of cross-contamination. But they do strive to the best of their ability. As far as menu items go, salads are going to be the main GF faire, other than muffins or prepackaged items. They do have plenty of GF dressings. Worth a visit.
This store is advertising gluten free foods and I have witnessed them cutting non gluten free foods with the same knife used to cut gluten free items.. I pointed out the incident to the women behind the counter and she was extremely rude and sarcastic! My 9 year old daughter has celiac disease an we will NOT ever buy foods from here! If they are that careless I'm not risking my daughters health with an irresponsible store that doesn't care enough to be educated when it comes to gluten free and cross contamination! The owner of the store was present when the incident occurred and said and did absolutely nothing!! I won't patronize this facility any longer!!
The one review here is NOT accurate. They do not make the gluten free treats in house -- they get them from a local baker who makes them. Whether or not that baker accounts for cross contamination, I don't know. But I've eaten there several times without issue, and I'm very sensitive. Cute shop, with a great selection.
This place is not gluten free, he is selling cookies and baked goods that are labeled gluten free but he bakes them in the same equipment as all the other baked goods and he is not at all educated on cross contamination. I know people who have gotten sick from the " gluten free" baked goods from there. Beware!
