I have tried a cream puff thing, brownie, and the biscotti from here. All were pretty good, prices are high but that’s to be expected. No seating really

This is a special place, the kind you remember, but can never find. By the Way Bakery is an old-fashioned bakery where everything is made by hand, from scratch, in small batches. And, by the way, all of our baked goods are gluten-free and dairy-free. They're also certified kosher. Most important, everything we make is as delicious as – if not better than – most conventional baked goods.



Blueberry muffins bursting with blueberries. A lemon layer cake made with fresh lemon zest and filled with homemade lemon curd. A chocolate chip cookie made with the finest Belgian chocolate. A smile you can taste.

Come visit us to find out why so many people have fallen in love with our bite-size little shops!

So many great bakery options at this 100% gf venue! After the night before walking into so many bakeries across NYC as I really just wanted a post Broadway muffin or something and had absolutely no luck - I made up for it with an intentional stop here the following day to get my sweet fix in safely! I had a muffin and it was DELICIOUS!

I was excited to try this bakery out so I purchased so challah an apple cake, some biscotti, and some other apricot pastry. Of course I’m happy to have a GF bakery. The challah was decent, heavy but tasty. The rest of the items we got had way too much sugar for my liking.

Ordered a gluten free birthday cake for my daughter’s birthday. It was beautiful and delicious. As a matter of fact it was arguably better than some standard cakes we’ve purchased for our other kids. Very light and fluffy.

We were visiting from Los Angeles. My daughter is gluten-free and dairy free. When we visit a new city, we always start by looking at where she can eat. We were so happy to have found By the Way bakery. We tried several items, brownies, Blondies, cupcakes, muffins, and the raspberry bar. Everything was perfectly moist and absolutely delicious! Wish there was a location in Los Angeles!

I have celiac disease and a dairy allergy. By the Way Bakery is my safe haven. I can eat literally anything they serve (which is a huge blessing) and it’s all excellent!! I’ve eaten a wide selection of what they offer and I’ve never had anything I didn’t like. A few favorites: the cupcakes (all flavors), the mini Bundt cakes (lemon and chocolate, haven’t tried the vanilla but it’s probably great), the cream puffs, and their chocolate cookies. This is my favorite GF bakery in NYC/the world! I’m about to move to LA and hope they decide to start shipping or open a satellite location.

The best gluten free bakery we have ever experienced and, frankly, a first class bakery period. We have eaten their food dozens of times. Everything here is gf and everything we have had is delicious — not just delicious for gf but delicious period. Staff is lovely, responsive, etc. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Love this bakery and everything is super moist and good considering they are also dairy free. I love the muffins and mini breads! My only complaint is that the times they’re open are inconsistent and wish they posted online which days they would be closed for Jewish holiday because they’re kind of out of the way for me
