    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.

    Wish we had made it for lunch but arrived 30 minutes or less before close. Staff was patient and helped us shop. The sugar cookies are tasty & beautiful. First Danish I have had in years (and my GF kids have ever had), and it was awesome. We’ll be back!!

    Staff was incredible. They have the Certificate to be a dedicated gf facility. The owner was not only knowledgeable but was so kind in referring other places to try that take celiac seriously. My belly is SO happy. I had the turkey Reuben and my daughter, who has a dairy allergy, was able to have a gf/df pizza. So SO many options.

    I’m on a road trip from Florida to Oklahoma and am glad I found this spot just at lunch time. I devoured the Ruben in record time and immediately regretted not savoring every bite. Delish! Wonderful staff.

    I literally got in town a few hours ago and decided to stop by after seeing it was a Dedicated GFree facility. What a gem! The egg and dairy free chocolate cupcakes are amazing! Ask for the chocolate and cream cheese flavored icing...I haven’t had cupcakes in a while and they hit the spot. Headed back today for another batch.

    We took our Celiac daughter two days in a row. So nice to have a place she didn't have to worry. We just got cookies for her the first day and then the next day or whole family and friends ate there! It was great food. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.

    By far one of the best parts of relocating to Little Rock (yes, there are many, this one is just really high on a very long list). Finding gluten free, vegan food is a rare gift - I'm so thankful to the folks at Dempsey who seem to just think of everything!

    Wonderful! I go there at least once per week. Pretty expensive for just a sandwich, but peace of mind is worth it.

    The ladies were exceptionally helpful. we called ahead looking for bread and they saved their last half loaf of everything bread for us. we had chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies for my gf boys, which were divine and worth every penny. my sister and I split a slice of coconut like roulade, which i felt was overpriced, but also delicious. we haven't tried the bread yet, but it looks amazing and the slices are huge - like normal huge! I would definitely stop in again.

    Love this place!! You can get a wonderful lunch, an actual sandwich on greet bread. The cracker bread is so good you'll want it even if you don't have to eat gluten free. And the desserts are amazing. The milk cake is by favorite but the cookies are scrumptious too.

    My favorite place in Little Rock! I can eat anything there! I got a little teary when I got there. It is amazing. The owner came and chatted with us. She's a sweetheart. I love to support businesses like her's. I will be back and I will order goods. Gluten free bread isn't always tasty, but the bread there ROCKS! BROWNIES! Yes! Yum! Cookies, cheesecake, & more. Awesome! Delicious food and wonderful people.

    My sister-n -law ordered me some cookies & cake from the bakery & it was great so we planned a trip to Little Rock to visit the bakery. It was well worth it! Paula & staff are very knowledgeable about food allergies in baked goods and are willing to discuss them with you. I could not believe all of the variety of baked goods. I bought many items after trying her samples.

    We are from Boston and visited Little Rock over the weekend. We were so lucky to find Dempsey's. This is hands down the best gluten free bakery we have been to. My son has a wheat, dairy and nut allergy, so he was in hog heaven (pun intended). Paula and her staff are incredibly knowledgeable and kind. One was even kind enough to tell me about this website/app, which I had never heard of before! Thank you Paula!! All best, Ellie, Brian, Dylan and Lyndon
