Such a great surprise to find this place as we were traveling through Knoxville. I have a gluten allergy and was so excited to see so many choices. I got the bacon, egg and cheese biscuit and it was so delicious and biscuit was not dry but very moist. I also got a doughnut that was very moist. I definitely recommend and will definitely stop again when in the area.
Disappointed. Not the same under new ownership. I have Celiac and travel many hours to BYL pick up large quantity orders. My last order none of the frozen items were individually wrapped, but just laying in a box. Upon taking a bite, quickly discovered everything was extremely dried out. No wrapping would easily explain this. I just tried a blueberry scone and it is not edible. Tastes like plain biscuit batter without basic mixing ingredients such as salt, and honey. Also, most items in the case are NOT wrapped and there is no backing to the case which means the food sits out in the open air all day. The last time I placed a large owner was under the previous owners. EVERYTHING that was frozen was wrapped. Nothing was dry. Hoping they will turn things around, if not they lost a customer. Also, many
Fantastic Staff who look after you really well. The Food is AMAZING! I have many food Allergies and the lovely Lady that served me and my Husband ( who has no Allergies) made sure our experience was memorable. I haven't had any type of cake for over 20 months and it was delicious. They should start a shop up in NZ 😊
They are very helpful and are good for gluten free, dairy free, and Paleo treats. Nothing in there contains gluten, and it's easy to find stuff that doesn't contain other allergens as well
wow - wow. walk, drive, fly - try this place!
Totally GF dedicated. Also have many Paleo friendly items and everything is listed either as GF, DF, V, Paleo.... Tried their Build Your Own Breakfast Bowl, wow, fabulous and couldn't eat it all, very filing! They had already sold out of the biscuits, which looked SO delicious my mouth watered. Lots of brands you may have seen before in grocery section, but.... the items were things I haven't seen at Publix, Whole Food or Earth Fare. Also had fresh farm eggs. I went on a Saturday at 11:45, so take this into account if you wanna eat a biscuit on Saturday.
Good, drove far and out of the way to stop in for specific items listed on website. Unfortunately those items are only on certain days so I was very disappointed. From website I was thinking it was a lot of home made specialty items that I normally cannot find at most stores. However when looking around it seemed to be a lot of name brands that I normally see at my grocery stores. Got a few bakery items that were good but again, things I've seen before.
Absolutely fantastic! A definite must stop!!
Wow! Just stopped here for a late lunch with my family. We are traveling from Texas and needed to stop. Small area for eating inside at but can take food to go. The owner was amazing! So friendly and welcoming! We had 2 bacon and cheese scones, paleo chicken salad sandwich (which my 9 yo son took from me to eat) we also ordered 2 smoothies to go. They had some fudge samples that my son really liked, but it isn't something the sell. The owner cut a few pieces for us to take on the road! Seriously, if you are in the area worth the stop! Looks like they run out of a lot of options as it's a small place and they have daily specials.
Loved all the options-all gluten free! I ended up with blueberry coffee cake with crunchy almond topping. It was amazing!
what a gem!! this dedicated gluten free bakery is absolutely delicious!! The cinnamon rolls were divine and the owners are super friendly. We just wish we lived closer to take advantage of this place often.
incredible biscuits and sticky buns. best I've ever had. I am down visiting from michigan and would highly recommend to any one gf. owner is a great guy and more than willing to help!
The gluten free chocolate cake with chocolate icing was delicious!
Lots of delicious options for a variety of food sensitivities in addition to gluten. The cinnamon rolls are better than normals cinnamon rolls!
Dedicated Gluten Free Facility. Also offers Dairy Free, Egg Free, Milk Free, Vegan and Paleo Options. Fresh, Friendly and Great Food! Smoothies are awesome!
The brownie was 6/10, fig pinwheel 10/10, cupcake 8/10, and the scone was 4/10.
Just tried their Focaccia bread for dinner tonight. One word, Amazing. It's a must visit if you are gluten free. I also had a slice of their quiche and chocolate chip cookie for dessert at lunch. It was also perfection.
LOVE BYL!!!! I'm so thankful to have found them! I have loved every single thing I have gotten! The chicken salad sandwiches are to die for and so are their sweets. You can't go wrong here because there is no chance for cross contamination.
Love that we have a dedicated gluten free facility in Knoxville TN!!!
We stopped here while traveling through and Benefit Your Life did not disappoint!! They have it all, muffins, donuts, cookies, and more!! Excellent healthy choices for sweets...all gluten free too!
The best choices for gluten-free. I've lived in Knoxville for 18yrs and this is the best choice for gluten-free. It's a real bakery. Totally dedicated gluten-free building. Staff are so kind! Everything I've had is delicious. My only complaint is that it's a little too pricey. I love their orange bundt cakes, almond joy bars, especially the cinnamon rolls.
Best bakery around! Tastes like it's "regular" bakery fare but is gluten free goodness!
Yummy things in the bakery. Loved the cinnamon rolls. They have a smoothie bar and freezer & grocery items. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. You also can get sandwiches or wraps and sometimes soup. Saturday's they have biscuits several ways. Everything in the store is gluten free.
Great find just a short drive from our hotel. The staff is super friendly and the food was excellent! I got a tuna salad sandwich and a turtle brownie to eat on the road on our way to Gatlinburg. It was a little pricey, but to be fair the sandwich was huge - it could've easily fed two people. The brownie was pure heaven. Will be back when I'm in the area.
Benefit your life is much more than a gluten-free bakery. They have a friendly staff, MTO food, a freezer with gluten free products, gluten free boxed items and on Fridays they have gluten free donuts. To quote my step-father "best donut that I've ever had, gluten or non-glutened". All of that being said, I would have given 5 stars, but the prices are pretty steep. I would definitely recommend and will be going back.
The best thing about this place is that everything in the entire store is GF! They have a pretty good variety of bakery treats that are absolutely amazing. And they do sell gf pantry items, including specialty things like GF phyllo dough that is hard to find elsewhere. That being said...they are WAY overpriced and kind of snooty. I tend to visit once a month or every couple months when I just want a good GF treat that I don't have to bake myself.
kind of pricey but if you are looking for a GF treat they have the most amazing GF donut!
We drove about 20 miles to get here based on reviews as we were visiting from San Diego with our 10-year-old daughter who has Celiac Disease. We were expecting a cafe. What we found was a market with a menu of three lunch items (tuna salad, chicken salad & quiche) plus a smoothie bar. No soup, as it is seasonal (despite fall like temps and rain). Seating was limited; two pub tables along the parking lot (it was pouring) or three stool at the smoothies bar with hardly any space at the counter because they use the counter more for displaying items. That being said, it was celiac friendly, staff was friendly & food was good. Would have liked to have seen a slightly bigger menu if we were to return in the future. Chicken salad wraps were on small side; my husband was still hungry. We spent close to $30 for two wraps, a smoothie & a cookies and cream cupcake and walked away hungry.
Both the food and service were wonderful! They had tons of options for gluten free, vegan, dairy-free, and paleo. I had the chicken salad sandwich and a cream cookie. A friend had a lemon bar. Everything was delicious! They also sell various gluten free and specialty packaged goods. I definitely would recommend and I will be going back soon!
Had a Italian cream cupcake and chicken salad. Both were delish!
Our favorite local store! Love knowing whatever I buy from the bakery is safe to eat. All the goods they sell are GF, and they offer so many other types of allergy friendly foods.
Everything is incredible. I choose the daily soup (tomato basil) and it was awesome. I also took home one of the scones which was to die for! EVERYTHING in the store is gluten free not only in the bakery but the store as well, it is Celiac disease nirvana!
The entire bakery/store is gf so it is completely safe against xcon. Many yummy options to choose from. Tried the delish chicken salad, and an assortment of scones (savory and sweet), along with a few other things for our trip. Be ready for the sticker shock as almost nothing seems to be priced until it's rung up.
Their chicken salad is to die for as are their baked goods!
Yummy baked goods and smoothies!
My moms best friends sister owns this place and everything is just so good.
Delicious gluten free options! Their bakery is phenomenal and they seem to have something new each time I'm there. Great place to get gluten free baking ingredients, breads, etc.
Lots of selections. Products way more expensive than the grocery store ($7 for a Go Picnic). Had an awesome carrot cake cupcake.
Love this place! They have a great selection and friendly staff!
Everything is gluten free in the store. Had their chicken salad and it was delicious. It had grapes, nuts and I think apples in it. Highly recommend!
Everything GF, so great place to shop. Smoothies are wonderful.
Cookies are great.
