I eat here at least once a week, the sandwiches are great, turkey and pesto on seeded bread is my go-to. And the peace of mind that the whole place is 100% gf is worth the higher prices. I also love the snickerdoodle, muffins and cupcakes... really what’s not to love?

I wish I could make a positive post, as the people who run this place seem very nice & I always like to support gluten-free businesses. This is a very small place & they usually close for the summer. They do not have prices listed on their menu board. I ordered a turkey sandwich, which came with basically nothing. Everything is an up-charge such as cucumbers & avocados. The sandwich alone was around $15. The bread was very gummy. I did not enjoy it. Worst of all, I felt like I got glutened after lunch. This is supposed to be 100% gf place! It had to be the bread or turkey. (Maybe a new ingredient supplier or change in product?) Bottom line - be careful if you have celiac & be prepared for an expensive sandwich! I personally won’t be going back.

I've never encountered a better place to eat. And I've never enjoyed a meal more than in tis dedicated gluten-free eatery. Oliver and his wife serve food that isn't free from allergens so much as its full of care, craft, and great taste. Organic, sustainable, beyond delicious. Think you've had bread before? Try the Cloud 9 loaf. Even my non-celiac friends are floored by it. They prefer it to their wheat. Love the baked goods here, from cookies to brownies to cake. Love the lunch. Can't find a more peaceful spot or better service either.

Totally Gluten Free! I am enjoying a banana cinnamon muffin and it’s delicious. Great selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Worth every penny. Quaint atmosphere and we’ll come back.

It's safe to order anything! I usually get the herbed grilled cheese (I can't believe it's vegan cheese. I still eat regular cheese and it tastes just as good)! My favorite take home is the banana choc chip muffin and a garlic bread roll for my freezer.

Completely gluten free facility, so you never have to ask a million questions about things like cross-contamination. Delicious homemade sandwich bread for sandwiches and great pastries. Kind of high priced, but worth it just to keep a place like this open!

They do have the best gluten free sandwiches I have ever had. Only downside, very slow to get and very very expensive, got the combo salad and sandwich, tea and bag of chips and was $21.00! I will still go back when I know I am going to spend that much and have the time to wait.

We vacationed at Dana point a few weeks ago and I used find me gluten free to track down gluten free bakery's. We tried several on our trip but Cloud 9 was the most amazing. From the bread to the muffins( oh my god the lemon poppyseed was to die for!) the donuts the brownie so, Wow incredible and not just gluten free but dairy, egg etc. The service was great and very friendly and the price reasonable compared to other gluten free bakeries. This is the best gluten free bakery I have found in the 3 years I have been looking from Nova Scotia Canada to California my only disappointment is that it's so far away.

The first time I ate here I didn't believe that it was actually gluten free. The food (both desserts and deli/other baked goods) are amazing!!! They're a little slow if you're ordering a sandwich, so don't come when you're too hungry, or just be prepared to wait. It's worth it.

My favorite organic, gluten-free place to eat in Orange County. Their baked goods are divine! Everything is fresh and excellent quality. Owned and operated by a really lovely family who obviously care about their products and customers.

Entire location GLUTEN FREE! No cross-contam issue here! Got the egg salad sandwich on multigrain bread with side garden salad with honey mustard dressing, 1 oversized, moist chocolate chip cookie, and 4 different muffins (didn't eat yet as of this writing) for $25. The fresh, delicious meal was worth $15 at a restaurant alone, so I don't think I overpaid. Took it all to go in a plain, brown paper box and little brown bakery bags. They were sold out of the coconut rolls, so I committed to calling in advance the day b4 I go to order any larger quantity. The bonus is the owners are so kind and genuine. While there, I met the owner of Hanson's Organic (fruits and veggies store). Reminds me of a tiny, clean NY deli. A very pleasant and delicious experience!

Soft, super moist, chewy GF bread. Loved the egg salad sandwich. Will go back! Pumpkin muffin was delicious. Tall and with a crunchy not-too-sweet topping. Hope they have shipping set up soon to send bread to relatives far away.

Great sandwiches! Fresh salad with the sandwich! They were both delicious. I had the grilled cheese (vegan cheese). I also tried the pumpkin muffin which was fantastic! Only reason not 5 stars is 900 for a grilled cheese is a little much, and they didn't have a big selection of baked goods to choose from. I was lookin for the cupcake everyone likes and they didnt have them yet ( it was noon on a Friday). Would defiantly come back if I was in the area.
