Absolutely amazing!! We went for lunch and it was the best celiac friendly meal I’ve had yet. Even my boyfriend loved it and he doesn’t have to eat GF. The staff is so friendly and they even let me know they can send me breads and treats via mail and all you have to do is call in the order

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.

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 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.

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.
