There are much better options out there. I bought croutons which are good, pizza dough which is fair, bagels which are hard as rocks and a 6 inch cake which was $40. On top of that they charge a 3% service fee to use a credit card. I feel like I was taken advantage of, especially on the cake. The bagels are never fresh. I’m done with this place.

The service was below par!! I was charged $78 for 18 bagels and a side of cream cheese that I ordered over the phone by a hot mess employee that had no idea what she was doing when she took my phone order. When I called the owner proceeded to tell me it was my fault that “I didn’t ask if the cream cheese was charged per bagel!” WHO ASKS THAT!!! She was rude and nasty and hung up on me! Quite frankly her pastries are dry and heavy and their bagels are extremely dense!! DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE TRIP!! SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

I was in awe of their selection! Purchased the following items: turkey panini (great!), bag of chocolate chip cookies (great!), cinnamon sugar crisps (meh), "oreo" brownie (Amazing!!), 2 donuts (meh), and a slice of triple chocolate layer cake (ok, but dry.) Many vegan foods.

Gluten free definitely

Nice space though you can’t sit anymore. Didn’t try the food only dessert. The bread is beyond revolting I wouldn’t bother. The baked goods are decent but are incredibly supersized and over the top pricey. Wish they had smaller items to buy. Nice staff. Decent selection.

Delicious, delicious, delicious! I had a vegan grilled cheese, a cake ball, and a cookiewich. My mom had a grilled cheese. The corn chips that came with the grilled cheeses were addicting. Everything looked so good that i had a hard time choosing what to order! Obviously, my diet stopped here! 🤪

While the bakery is safe for celiacs and dedicated gluten free, the food is just not good. I’ve been here about a dozen times because it’s close and convenient and I just want to like it, but the food is almost always dry, weird or just not tasty. Lots of options but nothing I’d want to eat twice. Bummer.

Everything here was good even got some stuff to take home. It’s extremely celiac friendly and also even promotes a comforting atmosphere for those with celiac such as having a message board in the back containing info about celiac symptoms and local community affairs for people with celiacs. I tried one of the paninis, cookies, brownies, donuts (which where my absolute favorite) the bagels were very good too but I prefer the bagel chips they have there if you love bruschetta that’s what I used them for! They have an assortment of take home stuff including freezer goods and baking supplies! Thankyou so much for creating a safe haven! A lot of products were vegan as well!

I come here every time we come to visit my partner’s family. Don’t love the bagels or pretzels as much, but the cannolis? To. Die. For. Like, I buy several at a time. Haven’t found anything even close to this anywhere else ever. And all celiac friendly and selling other GF items? Totally worth the drive and the prices.

On my second order of baked goods and while the fudge frosting was more like actual fudge on the inside my guests loved it. The second, a red velvet cake. OMG to die for. Perfect on sweet and the cake was incredibly moist!! Bought the rainbow cookies and accidentally ordered too many but too shy to say and glad I didn’t!! They were so scrumptious we couldn’t stop eating them! Cake balls a delight! Highly recommend

a lot of dairy free and Vegan options. I had a roll with bacon and egg, it was very very good besides the fact that I'm 99% sure they didn't use fresh eggs(my guess is powdered) and I also got some banana bread (dairy free) but it tastes like they forgot to put banana in it and is rather dry. the lack of products they had in store was disappointing I came in and they had some premade breads, cakes and a few vegan cupcakes but no donuts and almost no bagles (which are on the menu) maybe it was just the time of day I came in or something. the staff was very blegh. seemed like they didn't want to be at work today..didn't really make me want to come back again.

So disappointed to travel all the way to the bakery only to find out they use soy in EVERYTHING! I have never ever seen this before at any gluten free bakery since so many people with gluten allergies have soy allergies! Why couldn't they use rice milk or almond milk in some products so that everyone can enjoy their food! So sad and disappointed and will definitely not be back

My family & I visited after a colleague with tree nut allergies recommended it a while back.

Thought through this review, & after a few days of pondering, felt the need to write.

The concept to prove 100% wholesome Gluten Free food was both enticing, and encouraging. My daughter, with severe nut allergies, & I, with Hashi's Disease are always anxy when eating out. The upside: it's become an adventure finding restaurants we can both enjoy &while not sickened by what we eat. So, we took the 40 minutes road trip on Father's Day.

Here's the review: My chicken w/ cheddar desperately need sauce. I asked for mustard sauce, which salvaged the tastelessness as well (Chipotle sauce was a little too subtle).

Pizza should be flat. Our family was about done with our paninis when my daughter received a thick, burnt pizza. She's a trooper... Ate the melted mozzarella cheese on top & called it a day. The ceasar salads were decently sizes,, but are best with grilled chicken strips, rather than what appeared to be chunks of lunchmeat.

The Rainbow cookie (cake) was good, cause it tasted like a rainbow cookie, & wasn't dry. Can't say the same for my daughter's cupcake.

With all this said, again thank you for the concept. Work on technique, & I believe your beautiful café ambiance will be an even bigger hit in the heart of Long Island.

PRICEY and LACKLUSTER CUSTOMER SERVICE from a manager?? -- which is everything when food is so overpriced!!! I have to say, Everything we ordered tasted pretty good -- turkey sandwich and "vegan Delish" each on everything bagels, and lastly a blueberry muffin which my son absolutely loved!! BUT..... And there's a big BUT -- lady at the counter which happened to be the mgr charged me $2 extra on top of the already overpriced sandwich just for having one of my sandwiches on a bagel. On top of that, they didn't have any vegan cheese available for any of 15-20 vegan items on the VEGAN menu??!!! Also, she forgot to give me my $29 (for 2 sandwiches and a muffin) receipt ... Tsk tsk!!! I would have to agree with other reviewers that the lady at the counter is umm... Not so customer friendly --- in any case, called and asked about the overcharge as well as the lack of vegan cheese in my $14 sandwich and mgr admitted the overcharge was a mistake and that she would refund me for the entire sandwich. Thank you 'bare naked cafe' .. However I will not be returning as a repeat customer... First impression kinda sucked ... Such a shame cuz food was good!! Pls hire customer friendly (more on top of it) employees to be the face of your business!!!!!

Terrible bakery for gluten free vegan options. The cupcake I bought was frozen, tiny, more icing than cake, dry, and it looked amature-ish. The sandwich I bought was overpriced, barely cooked, sub par ingredients, and had no taste. Don't offer vegan options if you don't care about quality!

Finally got there. They had about an hour left till closing so slim pickings. So a loaf of "mock" rye bread. Kinda a pricy so I asked if I could taste before purchasing. Zachary said absolutely. It was delish! Needless to say I will be going back. They do ship for those who aren't able to go.

Their stuff is good and their variety and hours are good. The last time I went about a month ago, the staff was friendly. However I have gone many times over the years and have not been happy with the staff. There is one woman with blonde hair (who might be the owner) who I especially found unfriendly. I understand being busy, but customer service is extremely important in a business like this.
