Only giving 2 stars because it is a dedicated GF establishment and pretty. I got the pain au chocolat and coffee eclair. I tried a bite of each and didn't like either. WAY overpriced.

I have had a number of items from this bakery for lunch to donuts to bread at home. They make, hands down the best GF breads and donuts I have ever had. The texture is amazing! The croissants are the only thing I found underwhelming - too buttery and not flaky - but I think I must be super hard to get the same texture with GF flour. The Baguettes, donuts, chestnut bread are my favorites so far.

Delicious dedicated gluten free facility! We got sandwiches for lunch and then went back the next day for pastries to bring on the rest of our trip. The fruit tart was my fave. Highly recommend!

The gluten-free sourdough was so good we thought it was "regular!" Amazing! We had eggs with bread, with avocado on the side. My daughter liked her croissant. We ordered doughnuts for later and they were honestly terrible. Not sweet enough, and we aren't crazy sweet fanatics. I recommend anything else, though. The prices are pretty high, but it is special food and it is Santa Monica.

So thankful for dedicated gf places like breadblok. We loved everything we had. Highlight was the salmon tartine — just delicious. Also tried the croissant: really good. It didn’t have the layered, flaky consistency of a regular croissant but more importantly it had the buttery, yummy flavor of a croissant. Pumpkin muffin was good too but I found it slightly rich.

Got to check out Bread Blok in Santa Monica this morning.

Despite its good looks, it was a let down overall.

If you’ve ever had bread from New Cascadia or croissant from Mariposa, know they are both worlds better.

The bright spot was the Smoked Salmon Tartine. Good bread without toasting, lots of salmon, and really good cashew cream cheese topped with dressed arugula. This is the one things I didn’t get a pic of. I would happily eat this frequently.

The baguette with prosciutto and gruyere looked like it had a nice crust and fluffy interior but really was dense and grainy and the cheese of lower quality. It likely would have been better had the bread been toasted and the cheese melted.

Both croissants, prosciutto and chocolate filled, were very bready and dense with no flake at all. I didn’t even want to finish the chocolate, which is unheard of. Haha.

The latte and golden milk lattes were both good.

We got a loaf of brioche to take home and I’m crossing my fingers.

I spoke with some staff members to ask what their favorites were, since they suggested the salmon to me. The all said the strawberry or pear tarts were great. I would have gotten one but I already had another order to pick up from Cake Monkey in LA. (I will post later when I’ve tried everything but I can say the one thing we already tried was VERY good.)

The worst part was the price. Bread Blok is VERY expensive. The brioche alone was $22! Croissants are $7. Chia pudding was $12. I know it’s Santa Monica but it has to been good for those prices, not just okay to barely edible.

Next time I’m in Santa Monica, if I’m near, I’d consider going back to get one of their salads or the tartine, and a tart. Other than that, not worth the money.

Got so, so, extremely sick from cross contamination with oats I would imagine. Or it's straight up gluten. I have been in bed and in the bathroom for the last 18 hours straight. I ordered items that didn't contain gf oats but if you're a celiac who avoids oats I would not eat here as there has to be significant contamination to make me this sick. It's 4 am and I'm still up sick from lunch today. 😔 There's another celiac user on here who also got extremely sick so that's two now at least. Beware!!! Not safe for us.

Absolutely love this place, we’re regulars now. The brioche (especially as French toast) and the s’mores tarts are to die for, and it’s the best gluten free pastry dough I’ve ever found.

This place is HEAVEN! Dedicated Gf. The baguette is delightful as are their sandwiches on baguette. And their brioche donuts are divine. The person I was with said they would never know if was GF. It really made my day coming here.

Fully gluten-free bakery!!

The best gluten-free sourdough I have found in a store! Only downside is the price. $20 for a relatively small loaf. Small bag of crackers are $10+. That being said, the food itself is very good

Dedicated gluten free facility

One of the first gluten free bakeries with very high quality products. Had the brioche donuts, brioche French toast, sourdough, and blueberry focaccia. I loved EVERYTHING. The space itself is also amazing. Absolutely elevates everything.

THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!!

They're a completely gluten free bakery, and the quality is outstanding.

Try their GF&DF Chestnut loaf for bread that has a beautiful taste and the texture of a European artisan bread... My favorite is their Fruit and Nut loaf! I go in and buy one of each often.

They also have a dine in menu and their coffee is phenomenal.

Very overpriced and i was completely disappointed in everything i bought. It's nice to have a dedicated gf bakery to go to but the taste and texture of all items was unpleasant. Items look good but unfortunately that is the only positive comment i have for them. Tried the croissants, a cookie, the brioche, and a baguette. Nothing was even close to the quality standard i was hoping for. Threw every single item away after 2 bites.

Entirely gluten free and allergen aware establishments always gets five stars. A little pricey ($4 surcharge to add two slices of avocado to a sandwich) but a lot of feeling safe. The banana bread is nut free and heavenly.

New dedicated gluten free bakery on Montana Ave. Started by French/Belgian celiacs. The whole place is gluten free. They have donuts and pastries and various loafs. They also have sandwiches and salads and great coffee. It’s a bit pricy but worth it.

Some of the best GF bread I’ve had. They also label other allergens and what is vegan really well.
