I’m really disappointed with this place they don’t date their bread, went home next day moldy bread twice this has happen with their bread being $12.00 this is unacceptable. I went in and the lady servicing the register was packing the cookies in the container with the same gloves then I ask for my receipt she grab it out of the garbage with the same gloves and went back to packing the cookie disgusting wrote to the email on the website about the issues but never returned.

Best. Bagels. Ever.

I’m from NJ and have always craved a bacon egg and cheese, but have never been able to get one before. This exceeded all of my expectations!!!! Got a BEC with a fried egg and an onion bagel, I’m drooling just thinking about it. My boyfriend and I split an apple turnover too and the puff pastry was so flaky and yummy. Anyone visiting or living in LI has to come here!!

Welp, zero stars here we go!

This goes to the manager at the bare naked bakery in Bellmore- your a miserable human who needs control and must be so out of touch with reality that you need to talk to people like they are dumb. I can't recall your name- bc your so insignificant (I think it's something with a k)-- but hey! I promised you the worst yelp review of your career so here it goes! I hope you take a good look at yourself and realize, in the REAL WORLD speaking to a customer means you treat them with respect and care- bc guess what, my business pays your paycheck!

1) went to get bread

2) came home, put the bread in the fridge- next day toasted up a slice!

3) took a nice yummy bite of MOLD

4) threw up

5) called bare naked who pretended to give a shit- said OHHH I'm so sorry blah blah blah- I thought oh wow finally they are probably losing business so they are being nicer!! Had an entire chat I shared I'd be by on Sunday for a refund.

6) today is Sunday! I went in, with my moldy bread in hand! Two really nice girls were working-- I actually hope they quit bc this place is filled with terrible leadership and they don't deserve to have to work under these conditions.

So here's the GOOD STUFF! So I get there- and there's apparently a bread waiting for me. Which I was like umm I want my money back; the one girl calls the manager who I hear her in the background talking... so then she was saying she never said she'd give me the money back etc-- but she's a liar (and I called her one) and then further more asked me to leave my credit card number if I wanted a Credit--Like who in their right mind would do that?

So I say no. And demand my money back in cash right then. At this point I was on the phone with this lovely human who was speaking to me like I was a moron. I told her she's a liar and that I will ruin her on social media (which I will) and then she called me a liar! Customer service? Ok cool. This lady had me YELLING in a cafe, over 11.75! Suddenly after she realized I wasn't the one to play games with she instructed the girls to give me the money back.

Soooo, to sum it up- why did I waste my time doing this review? Bc it's the beginning of my plot to legitimately either make whoever owns this shit bakery to realize that her business will be RUINED any people like her & that if you look everywhere you have the worst reviews, yet stupid people like me go back....well no more! Never ever again. You won't ever see me again, But hey, you've heard that before! I feel bad for the owner, it's clear that they don't understand business if this is how they allow their managers to treat customers. Oh and I'm apparently getting a call from the owner bc this lady wasn't happy with how I was going on I suppose absolutely ridiculous. So if you want shit service and stale food! Go right ahead bare naked is just for you!

I am new to the gluten free world. I figured I’d give this a try today and I’m sooo happy I did! I had an awesome panini (bbq) chicken and a rainbow cookie (amazing!). I brought home a bunch of goodies to try but so far so good. I’m thrilled to have found this place.

I have been going to BNB for years. I have also been slightly disappointed with the staff at times, sometimes the food, prices, etc. But I go because it’s safe for me and I live close.

Today I was the ONLY customer in there and I asked for a toasted bagel with gluten free cream cheese. They (two younger girls) confirmed it twice with me and I get home with the bagel and there is so little cream cheese that it looks like butter. For almost $5 .. it’s not worth it. So disappointing.

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.

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.
