It's not often where I live that I get to go in to a diner/bakery and order from an entire menu dedicated to gluten free dishes or let alone, purchase any kind of gluten free baked goods. This place though, has all that and more. While on a weekend getaway to Madison, we stumbled upon this gem of magic made into food. Having Celiac's, I was able to completely enjoy myself here. The menu was absolutely fantastic and the choice in baked goods was phenomenal. I had the Bloom Benedict and mopped up every ounce of deliciousness with the moist flakey biscuit on which the perfectly poached eggs and toppings rested. We also couldn't pick just one of the beautifully crafted gluten free baked items, so we bought one of each. I haven't tasted them all yet, but of the four I've had I know I'm in for a food coma very soon. Bloom also has a wide selection of vegan meals, desserts, and pastries. And if you're still not convinced of how incredible this place is, know that they also are a safe space for the LGBTQ community AND they sell a gorgeous "Love is Love" purple and rainbow frosted, gluten free, vegan cupcake. Do be prepared for a wait if visiting during a normal meal time, but it's worth every second. Thank you for doing what you do Bloom staff, and somehow, someway, I will be back.
I am in heaven every time I go to Bloom. It’s difficult to choose one thing, so I often leave with a box full of goodies. Even my family of gluten eaters love when I bring home anything from Bloom. Last Thanksgiving I ordered the pumpkin pie to serve on Thanksgiving Day. A bit indulgent, but totally worth it. This was the BEST pumpkin pie I have ever had. Honestly, I didn’t want to share it. The crust was flaky and absolute perfection- quite a feat considering this was also a vegan pie. I can’t wait to get another one this year.
GF biscuits and gravy. Need I say more? :) Have had a nice conversation with the owner about all the precautions she takes for GF. She knows her stuff and takes it seriously. I did once have a mixup with a takeaway order, but I should have checked it before I walked out the door. (Thankfully, I could tell the difference by sight, and didn’t consume any of it.)
This is my go to bakery for Celiac friendly gluten free baked goods. They use separate kitchen spaces for gluten free baking, which prevents cross contamination. The texture and flavors of GF pastries and cakes is phenomenal, sometimes even better than glutinous baked goods! I love supporting this locally owned bakery and pretty much exclusively purchase GF baked goods from here.
I'm thinking that one of the past reviewers didn't look closely enough at the bakery case! Gluten free and gluten-containing baked goods might appear to be in the same case at first glance.....but it's actually two separate cases right next to each other. This has been the case every time I've been here, and the workers/owners have clarified that gluten free and gluten-containing baked goods are always separate. It's also awesome that the GF stuff is vegan as well, for those who also have to avoid dairy! It can be so hard to find a GF/DF treat. I'm not usually a cupcake person, but the GF cupcakes here are the best cupcakes I've ever had. Love this place!!!
Just stopped in to look - they have lots of gluten free baked goodies but everything was in the same case with crumbs all over the inside of the case and all over the trays. Everything looked delicious but sorry, not safe for anyone with celiac or especially sensitive.
