Most certainly a 100% gluten free facility. There was a sign on the door forbidding any outside food from entering. The sandwich bread was wonderful, and the cookie I had for dessert was one of the best I’ve had in years. (Yes, I just said that about a cookie)

I can't say much more than what has already been said, but this place is a gluten free goldmine. Amazing food, lots of options, and offers egg and dairy free options as well. A freezer section has things you can take home and bake, and it will be a new go-to place for me now that we've moved to the area. If you are gluten free, go there!

Very good! We both got the club! My husband loved that he could sub the daiya cheese for the regular! BUT he really loved the GF DF ice cream sandwich after! We got some other sweets to take home, and can’t wait to try those! Super cute place!

Stopped on our way through heading to Memphis, and found this gem! They had two daily special cookies: Lemon Drop & Key Lime Coconut... Both were scrumptious!! In fact I only. Got one lemon cookie & before we left town we went back to get some more! 😆 They have egg free, dairy free treats. They also make grain free bread. We went to ‘Big Orange’ where they have amazing burgers & use Dempsey’s buns! Best burger and bun I have had, definitely worth trying it!! 😋

This was a road trip stop and everything we tried was quite good. We especially enjoyed the potato corn soup and the cheesecake. We each got a different flavor but my favorite was the birthday cake- I highly recommend you give it a try!

The only thing better than the sandwiches and desserts, is the customer service. They are so nice! Also, they label dairy and egg free items as well. No gluten, and I believe no nuts as well!

Absolutely amazing all around. I am the only one in my family who is gluten free but I have to fight over ALL of their sweets. Non-gluten free family members prefer them too. Kind staff every time we have been there. Clean beautiful facility. They did our wedding cake, I could not say enough nice things about Dempsey.

This bakery is 100% gluten free and a must-stop if you have celiac or other food allergies and are in the Little Rock area. The owner is so sweet and they have a huge selection of sweet treats, as well as frozen lasagna, pizza, and pot pies. I recommend getting an Airbnb with a kitchen if you’re visiting Little Rock and stocking up on frozen meals at Dempsey’s, like I did.

It’s very safe for my sister to eat at this bakery and for anyone who has severe food allergies.

The gluten free options are amazing for my sister who can’t do any gluten, wheat and soy.

I don’t have any food allergies but I usually will eat their gluten free options and it’s actually and a good option.

I had a fancy grilled cheese, turkey bacon avocado salad, and sweet tea. The sandwich was a little dry, the garlic aoili is a must-have, and the owner was super friendly. I also got a red velvet cupcake and it was very good, pumpkin chocolate chip tea bread (was stored in a bag for a few days while I ate it piece by piece and stayed moist!), and a s'mores bar- best thing I had.

Wow! What a wonderful place. I enjoyed the club sandwich for lunch followed by a Jai Cookie Sandwich. They were so good that I inhaled them.

Next I tried the cinnamon raisin bread and liked it so much that I bought a loaf to go along with a package of hamburger buns.

This place is a gem. I wish I lived closer to Little Rock.
