Went in to buy a treat after positive reviews. Asked what I could get gluten free and they said nothing is celiac safe there as all shared prep and baking space, really disappointing but at least they told me so I didn't get anything

Gluten free and with gluten baked good are prepared together in the oven and stored together on the counter. There is significant cross contamination which they were honest about and kind to let me know however this is important to know before going all the way to the bakery. These treats are not celiac safe and are not for someone with an allergy.

Amazing!! I stopped in and got one cheese bun while my husband was picking up food next door- I took a bite and went back in and bought two more! They had several gf items that were clearly marked- cheese buns, cheese/herb/bacon rocks, cornmeal and cheese pancakes, flan, and more.

Absolutely delicious Guava rolls and cheese rolls and cheese rocks -all gluten free and the best taste and texture of GF that I have had. Also make Paleo muffins and cookies that look delicious and flan Highly recommend

Delightful little bakery with delightful treats for GF and non GF people. I had the GF banana muffin which was moist and yummy. The guava filled roll was also tasty. They offer a traditional Mexican flan to which I'll be returning to try later.

I eat here as often as possible. The cheese rocks are incredible (and somehow taste like real, doughy, bready rolls!) and the staff is so friendly.

Yummy tasting baked goods. The sweet corn pancakes are outstanding? My daughter loved the cheese rolls better than the cheese rocks, but I thought both were great. There is no gritty GF taste to any of what we tried. The lady that helped us was patient and helpful. The only concern is that the GF items share a case with gluten items. Cute little place that smells divine! Wish it was closer to home.

Went here for breakfast while on vacation. They have a few gluten free options- savory or sweet cheese buns, corn pancakes, banana muffins. The flan is also gluten free and amazing. The cheese rocks were crispy on the outside and gluteny- chewy on the inside. They're so good I almost don't believe that they are gluten-free! Not many options that aren't carbs, but their baked good are quite tasty. When he cooked my pastries in the panini press, he wrapped them in parchment paper so they didn't touch the grilling surface, but the baked goods are stored in the same case as the gluten goods, so this place may not be 100% celiac or allergy friendly.

5 stars for the gluten free baked goods and service. Not a place for a breakfast sandwich, though if you got the cheese stone to go it would be awesome for an egg sandwich! I also had a guava pocket. It was almost like corn bread with guava filling. Not too sweet (which I prefer) and definitely Latin flavors. I ordered iced coffee black which was mediocre so next time I'll get milk and sugar. But everything else was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely come any morning I'm in the neighborhood.

Few GF options, but what they have is really good. Cheese buns and banana muffins made from almond flower were the best. Still no GF sandwich bread.

So I was in NY and not familiar at all with the city. I used the FMGF app to help me locate some gluten free food because I was starving and Big Booty Bread came up! I walked the 2 blocks and was pleasantly surprised to find unbelievably great bread. I bought both the gf cheese bread and the guava filled bread and both were absolutely delicious! The two people working behind the counter really knew what they were talking about when it came to their gluten free bread and you couldn't ask for better service. I will definitely be returning when I am in NY again.

Makes me want to shout from the rooftops. Guava pockets SO GOOD. Turns out a lot of traditional Colombian bread and pastry is made with yucca flour, making it naturally GF. That's probably why it's so good, cuz it wasn't trying to be.

Amazing gluten free breads and rolls made with cassava (yucca) flour. Some breads have cheese, some are plain, others have guava jelly. This bread will change your perspective on GF breads.
