    AMAZING for any dietary need or mix of needs! Sadly, they closed their storefront 10/25/2013 and are now only a catering business

    This place truly gets the gluten-free lifestyle. Over half of the bake case is dedicated to delectable dainties for the celiac-free: cupcakes, cookies, pies, and turnovers in constantly changing seasonal varieties. Staff very helpful as well. Would definitely go back again.

    SUPER! What a wonderful cafe attached to the public library, nice atmosphere - couches and board games, people hanging out with their laptops or playing chess. The main lady knows her grains! She makes several GF breads - and named them by their grain that I had not even heard one that was made from a type of corn mesa...she explained things clearly and made changes for a friend who also could not do dairy or eggs. VERY VERY allergen friendly! The baked goods were limited, but very grateful to have a sandwich on GF bread! :)

    Wonderful treats and breads. They cater to so many allergies. Now they are coming out with a new line of gluten free cakes that are not vegan. This way they people that just need gluten free can have a cake that is fluffy and light. The gluten free vegan will continue as well. Though a little denser the flavor is great even without eggs, dairy or corn. The staff is knowledgeable and very nice. So excited that they are here.

    So nice to have a place to order a GF sandwich. She keeps the bakery case well stocked with GF and non-GF cookies, muffins, etc. Will do special orders for special occasions. Her Cowboy cookies are my favorite!
