    I tried the carrot cake muffin, chocolate muffin and the pumpkin parfait. The carrot cake is one of the best I have ever had! It is so moist! I didn't care for the chocolate cupcake it was a little dry and so was the butter cream. The pumpkin parfait was rich and yummy!!

    So happy to have found this gem. Delicious gluten free cakes, cookies, muffins, donuts, yes donuts! I may have cried a little when I bit into my maple cake donut, it was that good. Soft and thick wonderful sugar cookies. And so reasonably priced. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

    so amazing. The baked goods are succulent and moist. All the food is vegan too, which doesn't matter to me, but it doesn't skimp on flavor.

    We got an assortment of baked goods. They were ok, but nothing to write home about. Our main complaint was that they were dryer/crumblier than they should be and a lot of the food tasted of perfume or some kind of cleaner. This is a common complaint for me, as many bakeries have staff that wear heavy perfume or body lotion and the taste/smell is transferred to the food. No one got sick from eating here but considering the risk of cross contamination I probably wouldn't eat here again.

    One word - YUM!!!!! Worth the trek slightly out of downtown. Eat before you go as food choices beyond sweets is slim.

    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Cheesecake is amazing and served on a shortbread crust. The cafe part is a bit weak, but the bakery is so stellar I'll still give it 5 stars!

    Love this place!! Delicious gluten free bread. My family loves their cakes for birthdays. My daughter especially loves their cake donuts and cookies. All their other desserts are delicious too. Even make gluten free rolls now that are awesome! I would recommend this to anyone seeking gluten free!!

    Quaint little bakery store, close to Liberty Park. Full blown pastry factory behind plexiglass (so you can see your order being made fresh!). Do not know how pure the GF food is made (i.e. cross-contamination). I ordered GF waffle with syrup & fruit- and I survived! As I said, it's quaint... the selections aren't Dunkin' Donuts, but unique enough. Neat coffee carafes, choice of soy or half-half creamer. If you don't mind not doing mainstream pastries, this is the restaurant for you and your crew!
