    Love Cole’s!!!! We’re regulars and absolutely love it! Be patient, as there’s usually only one person working front of the house. The food is usually pretty quick though, it’s not usually crowded, and the food is great. I can’t wait to try every item in the bakery case and on the menu. Love doughnut day (Saturdays). Most menu items can be made dairy free. They have a good assortment of baked goods that are dairy free, vegan, and even some keto options. All their sauces are dairy free. My favorites so far are their Philly sandwich, the waffles, the chicken strips, pulled pork, scones, and doughnuts. The hamburger was ok, but wasn’t my favorite and I don’t care for the way they do their side salads. I look forward to being able to try their pastas!

    Great place! They are a little pricey but that's worth the sacrifice! I can have donuts, pizza, nachos, burgers, tiramisu, cupcakes, etc! Cute little shop!

    A lot of great gf offerings. Not a lot once you add in dairy and egg allergies. Had vegan bbq nachos, which were underwhelming. Still rating 4-stars because seems safe and good if you’re just avoiding gluten!

    nice to have the gluten free options but the food is so so, onion rings dripping in grease, overall the food is lacking a tasty special touch that would be expected in a specialty shop and overpriced

    Tons of amazing stuff. lt has lots of flexible items (they have dairy free/vegan options) and the food is really good too. We had chicken strips, a gourmet grilled cheese, a pizza, mac & cheese, and then shared a key lime pie. We will be back.

    Our experience was not at all like Julia's. Had a outstanding GF food and beers. The bread was a good as I've ever had. We were staying at a lake cabin for a few days so we stocked up on soup, fresh buns, carnitas, quiche and sweets. A dedicated facility is such a treat, I don't feel like a second class citizen.

    Slowest service...every time my family and I (2 adults, one four year old and one infant) go here it takes us no less than two and a half hours and we are always one of two tables. The food is decent, but the orders are always messed up and we purposefully have tried ordering strictly from the menu with no modifications or substitutions for this purpose but still it is always wrong. If you have a ton of time and don't mind Luke warm food- go for it!

    AMAZING!!! I wish they were everywhere. A dedicated facility and the owner is celiac so she knows what it's like. I felt like a normal person again ordering off a full menu! First day had pecan waffles..... So good! Second day went for lunch and had French onion soup and split a sandwich and chips - she is a genius at flavors. Love this place and will be back again and again! PS - cheesecake is to die for.

    This food was AMAZING!!! ALL of it is gluten free! I had the cocoanut chicken tenders/fingers with fries and the tarter sauce. They were very good!! I also tried the fried pickles which were awesome and wayyyyy better than any of the fried pickles that I've ever had before. All of their deserts looked amazing! I split the magic bar with someone and it was awesome! The service was great too! 5 stars for sure and across the board. I highly suggest going here if you can!

    The entrees were quite were good, but unfortunately the fries were lukewarm when they showed up. Loved the french onion soup (have not had this for many years) & the Philly sandwiches were excellent. The highlight was the gorgonzola sauce for the fries, it was amazing, we could have licked the bowls(maybe we did). The service was very friendly but a little slow. Nice place, clean but a little sterile still (no ambiance), I am sure that will will change after they have been here a while.

    We were on our way through spokane and used the app to find this buisness. her baked goods are phenomenal. my non gf fiance said the cinnamon roll was better than anyone he had ever had. such good food. the pizza of the day was like chili pizza so that was weird, but the crust was nice.

    Excellent gluten free food! The whole place is dedicated gluten free! The owner has celiac disease so is knowledgable. It's nice to not worry about cross contamination. They have pizza, baked goods, sometimes they have lasagna, mac n cheese. You can order stuffing, rolls, pies etc for holiday meals. Everything I've had was really tasty, even my non GF husband likes there food. I love the peace of mind that my daughter and I won't get sick.

    OMG!! This lady had the best Gluten Free Pizza I have ever had! I had a maple scone that tasted like a maple bar! Her Tiramisu and cookies are to die for! She serves soups, lasagna, pizza, mac-n-cheese, ANGEL FOOD CAKE that is out of this world and all at great prices. I am in love with this place, and you can take it out or eat at one of her tables. I love that she is at the north end of Spokane and her prices are great! I didn't know she was there, but we will be a fixture there now. I am such a sensitive celiac that I feel better knowing the entire place is gluten free, and better than the "other" gluten free place in town. Her food is worth the trouble to go check her out. I thought I was excited when I discovered a few other places, but this place doesn't make me nervous to eat at and her food is better. I hope you go see it!

    I love this place! I'm not sure what my favorite is here......maybe the pumpkin roll, or Angel food cake, or the cinnamon rolls. The pizza is awesome and the owner Jeanine is knowledgeable and very friendly.

    I visited the bakery just after the soft opening and just before the grand opening. I went in because it caught my eye as I was driving by. They wer not officially open but the owner Jeanine was incredibly friendly allowing me to sample several of their items. I have to say that it was all excellent, but the angel food cake, was out of this world! It was so light and fluffy with the crispy crust you get when it's really fresh. And don't get me started on the homemade cheese balls and crackers.(They actually make part of the cheese from scratch). I definitely loved that the entire bakery is only dedicated to providing gluten free items that you can dine in or take with you. They also have several items available for baking in your own home. I will definitely be back again!
