Their website clearly explained that they are no longer a traditional café-type bakery. Goodies are still available to the public, but you must order ahead online. Ordering was simple and our order was ready quickly. Everything was delicious! Items are large, no tiny cookies or two-bite muffins. Everything we tried was the best we've ever had. Alas, they were sold out of PopTarts when we were there. We will be back every time we are even remotely in the area!

Orders must be placed online ahead of time. No walk in orders. Both ordering and pick-up were quick and easy.

We drove specifically to the area for this bakery based on reviews to find the location ‘closed’ to the public. We then read that local coffee shops carry their desserts- mapped out a close one only to learn they have a ‘muffin’. Rather disappointing and frustrating. Can’t comment on the safety or taste of the food as we’ve not tasted.

I’m so excited BamBam is back open in their new Brighton Ave location! Their bread, baked goods, and POPTARTS are out of this world. 100% gf and lots of dairy free options as well.

Just a heads up as of today... we walked 10 blocks to try them out, and they are in the process of relocating. Please check their website before you head to their current address on Commercial Street.

Returned after many sad years away and BamBam does not disappoint. Amazing delicious and so affordable!! Cinnamon rolls are the best EVER tasted since GF. How many can I put in my carry on suitcase? Awesome bakery. Lemon bars are the best. I had Stromboli for lunch one day. It was delicious !! So enjoyable when in know I don't have to worry about gluten! Wish this bakery was in California! Easy walking distance from old port.

Oh, sweet heaven. I got out of there with a very reasonable bill of $25ish. Molasses cookies, sprinkle cookies, chocolate chip cookie, oatmeal raisin cookie, eclair (!), lemon square, apple pie bar, and a snickers bar - amazing! We haven't eaten it all yet, but feedback on the lemon bar, chocolate chip cookie, and oatmeal cookie was, "yum"! My complaint about the eclair is that the filling was too loose. Just to be able to go somewhere and tell the kids that they can have anything they want is such a treat!

When BamBam opened, it was a fabulous place but when the new owner took over the quality plummeted. I decided to give it one more try and the cookies I bought for my son were ROCK HARD. I will never be back...BUT if you are desperate for GF, this place is safe but not that great unfortunately.

This place alone makes a trip to Portland worthwhile for someone who can’t eat gluten. Stopped in for breakfast and split an egg sandwich with my fiance-amazing, then a brown sugar cinnamon “pop tart” that was like the real thing but 10 times better. If i lived nearby i would be there every weekend to try something new. There was so much to choose from.

We were so happy to find this bakery. My boys were ecstatic to learn that all of the beautiful desserts were indeed safe for them. We have also had the Mac and cheese, lasagna, and chicken pot pies, and they were delicious. We will be sure to stop by whenever we are in Portland.
