    I have not had the opportunity to try the GF cheesecake but I was very impressed when I wrote the bakery and Alex himself wrote me back with a list of their GF items. They have won a customer for life!

    Gluten free items are not really gluten free. Just made with gluten free ingredients in a heavily contaminated kitchen and then stored touching gluten containing items.

    I was really looking forward to indulging in the GF cheesecake that I've heard so much about. When I visited, they had GF cheesecake, cupcakes and muffins. BUT...GF is a loose term. The GF muffins shared a tray with regular baked goods, which made me question the cupcakes. Just the fact that the muffins were pointed out as GF, right next to a non-GF food, made me realize we had different understandings of the term "Gluten-Free." I questioned the gentleman about the GF cheesecake. He assured me that everything was cleaned before cooking, the shared slicer was cleaned after cutting non-GF cheesecakes, and the GF remained covered in plastic wrap (right next to normal options) in the display case. He was so convincing that I almost ordered a piece. Luckily, a very gracious employee walked up, and explained that: while the cheesecake is made with GF ingredients, it is very unlikely that it remains safe from contamination. She suggested I forgo it if I was very sensitive. I left disappointed, but extremely grateful that I wouldn't be sick in a few hours. This is another case of eating based on your sensitivity. I happen to be very sensitive. However, even if I wasn't, having Celiac means ANY gluten does damage to my body...even if I feel it, or not. I guess it's a matter of personal preference. If you can tolerate their version of GF cheesecake (or normal cheesecake, you lucky thing) you will not be disappointed by this place. I've had it in my Pre-GF days, and it is amazing! If you are sensitive or cautious about what you put in your body, this is not the place for you...sorry. I ended up finding a GF cheesecake at Aldi. It had a sampling of 4 different flavors. It may not have been as good as Alex's, but it didn't leave me hating life, either.
