This place is AMAZING!!!! If you are in the area and especially if you have celiac then it’s an absolute MUST!!! The staff and extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. But the best part are all the goodies you can choose from. I got a whole box and I would eat these over traditional treats even if I didn’t have celiac. Holy Cow Batman I’m impressed!!!

Amy's confetti cake was delicious! Similar to a crueller with lots of sprinkles. Cream puffs were good, not filled with cream as we expected. Chocolate cake and caramel pecan bars were okay. Staff was friendly.

Probably one of the best Dedicated Gluten-Free bakeries we’ve ever been too. Everything was incredibly good. Nothing was dry, hard, or particularly dense. The staff is great and knows their products. If you visit one GF Bakery in NYC this has to be it. Great to see after the Metropolitan Museum!

As a celiac who was visiting New York, this place blew my mind. I had the Rugelach and even went back to buy some more to bring home for my family in LA. This is NOT to be missed. This establishment is a celiac-heaven. Come here and there will never again be a need to pity the days when you could eat freely… By the way bakery brought a smile to my face and belly. I dream about it on the daily!!

THE BEST BAKERY, PERIOD! The universe has answered by prayers! Perfect texture, incredibly moist, absolutely delicious. I’m a super-sensitive celiac. I will never by a cake or pastries anywhere else in my life. I’ve bought three varieties of layer cakes on four different occasions and have never had any reaction except sublime bliss and gustatory delight.

The RASPBERRY CHOCOLATE CAKE is an act of divine intervention, paradise regained for celiacs. It’s is simply the best cake I’ve ever bought in my life. Only my mother’s homemade German chocolate cake made from scratch is better.

Their loaf pound cakes are absolutely amazing, both vanilla and chocolate marble.

The Lemon layer cake is my third favorite—you actually taste the lemon. Perfect with Darjeeling or Earl Grey.

The chocolate chocolate cake is amazing, even perhaps a bit overwhelmingly chocolate. It’s more like eating ganache, which is actually an amazing thing. Serve with espresso-based coffee.

The chocolate vanilla is very good—great cake, but the frosting needed more vanilla oomph as it was nondescript. However, the brilliance of the chocolate cake compensated gallantly.

And one Friday, I will make the journey to get a challah.

Well it should really be called ‘Out of the Way’ Bakery!! We needed gluten and dairy free goodies for a tea party so we trekked to the Upper East Side specially as all their baked products fit the bill.

It turned out to be a good decision - there’s so much choice for us gf/df folks which is not the norm.

I splurged - $5/6 for cakes, $2/3 for cookies. The almond cookie was light and tasted like marzipan- delish! The ginger cookies are also great. The lemon poppyseed and sour cherry cakes were moist and flavorful. The cakes were quite filling so I have several leftover - looking forward to eating them later....yummm!
