This was our first time here and we really enjoyed our sandwiches, the club and the ny new York. I'm looking forward to trying all the baked goodie we bought. The staff are very friendly and helpful. However it wasn't until I left that I remembered that when I looked them up it said that they had pizza and pasta and I did not see it in the menu. Wish I had remembered to ask about that.

As a gluten free snob and cook myself, I will only eat the best tasting and made products. IE I avoid them when the first or second ingredient is sugar. While in Tucson during the stay at home order I called ahead to order the rosemary bread, some Cookies, a cupcake and cinnamon pull aparts for treats. They were lucious and I so appreciated Rebecca, the owner, confirming to me that all could be apportioned and frozen for eating later. They could not have been nicer, the bread was still warm and it was the best gf sourdough I’ve ever eaten and rivaled some of the best nongf sourdough I’ve eaten as well. If you’re a serious bread person, or bread baker and want someone else’s loaf, this is the best place to go. When I leave I hope they’ll ship frozen loaves! They do sell mixes too. Thank you Dedicated!!

They are clearly dedicated to their community and amazing about communication. Rebecca the owner is so patient.

Definitely worth a stop! Had GF/DF cinnamon rolls, and several different flavor cupcakes. By far the best GF/DF baked goods I’ve had in both categories, and I have tried my share (all over the country)! Went back the next day to try more. Hardest thing was not trying everything!

Dedicated GF

We special ordered some vegan items and they were good, but we weren’t blown-away-impressed. They rely heavily on rice flour, which is frustrating because it makes food super starchy without much nutrition. Not to mention that rice is cheap, so I’m surprised at how expensive these items are.

They ALSO use oat flour in many of their items. It’s certified GF but many celiacs (like me) can’t handle oat flour, and I don’t think dedicated GF bakeries should be using oats.

We special ordered challah, which was unusually sweet (but I haven’t had gluten challah in about 12 years so maybe I’ve just forgotten how sweet it was), but overall not bad.

The salads are extremely overpriced for what you get, and there are no vegan breads for sandwiches, which was doubly disappointing.

I’d been emailing with this place for awhile before we placed our order for pickup when traveling through the area, and it was really hard to get a straight answer about what exact flours they use in their baked goods, along with other ingredients. For a place that caters to food allergies, I expect about 5000% more transparency than this, and I expect this info to be on their website. However, once I wrote to them to say I wasn’t feeling well after eating there, they were quick to respond with the flour blend ingredients and asked if I needed or wanted full ingredients lists. I am grateful, but I wish this information was more freely available.

I am sure that the oat flour is why I did not feel well after eating here. (I have celiac reactions to oats.)

I was sad to throw away the oat-containing items I bought. So far I’m keeping the oat-free breads in the freezer to try at a later date. I’m not sure if the oat contamination will be as bad as gluten contamination, but I spent so much money on this stuff that I hate to toss it without giving it another chance.

I probably wouldn’t go back, but if you’re not vegan and you can eat GF oats, you’ll probably love this place and should try it.

The cafe is cute, with kitschy art and a board of local news. The cloth chairs are stained and the tables weren’t cleaned, but since the crumbs are gluten free, I’ll give them a pass.

To be honest, dedicated it not my favorite. i continuously try to give it another chance and am always disappointed. Whether it’s their slow service, dry pastries or hygiene issues. I had better gluten free pastries when I was first diagnosed with Celiac over 10 years ago. I want to supported a “dedicated” facility, but I’m continuously unimpressed with their food. Their layout and the way you order often feels very confusing and disorganized. Pretty disappointing. I’ve had a couple good items here but honestly, it’s usually a miss. On a positive note, their take home items (bread) aren’t bad.

This place is great! The entire place is gluten free. The staff is knowledgeable and few also have celiac so they REALLY know the deal! Very helpful prices could be lower I paid around $12 for a fairly small sandwich no side but the peace of mind was priceless so I didn’t mind at all. I’ll be back soon. Highly recommend

This was the first place I went after my celiac diagnosis, because I knew it would be safe! Being able to choose anything off the menu was very exciting. The food is delicious, and there are so many dessert options too. Understandably the prices are a little higher than non gluten free, but it’s worth it to know that the food is safe. I highly recommend their rosemary bread! Fluffy and soft, and just the right amount of rosemary to compliment their sandwiches.

This place is amazing!! Please do yourself a favor and come it a sandwich, scone, and cream puff! Best gluten free bread I have ever had, and it's makes great sandwiches. I just had sour dough with a "Tucson it's a dry heat" sandwich. It pretty reasonably priced as well. It's located perfect for anyone going to the park place mall, or anywhere central or east side. They even have a mini food store & kick ass t shirts. The staff is so friendly, and the owners are sweet, understanding, and love what they do. Always leave way too full!!! Thank you Dedicated for being you!!

The people were super nice and helpful! However they used oat flour in most of their desserts, which for some celiacs is still not okay. Not very many vegan options and they were out of their vegan cheese when I went. My selection was little and I ended up getting a salad, which was good but just not what I'm looking for when I go to a gf restaurant.

Enjoyed our sandwiches here ... they use Boars Head meats. Easily accommodated GF and DF (and latex free). Bread on sandwiches tasted more like a cornbread; sandwiches were also on the small side. But, it is nice place and wonderful that they are a dedicated facility where you can get a sandwich without worrying about getting sick.
