My niece and I made a trip to this little, adorable, gluten-free bakery a priority on our NYC trip and it was sooooo worth it! We tried a little of everything, and the donuts, brownies and more were moist and delicious. The Samoa donut was superb. It’s so nice to be able yo go to a bakery and have choices when you are gluten-free. It was like being a kid in a candy shop. :)
Their donuts are incredibly delicious. We can’t get enough. We’ve tried so many gluten free and dairy free bakeries and this bakery, hands down, makes the best gluten free and dairy free donuts! Highly recommend for people with Celiac disease, such as myself and daughter.
Erin McKenna’s is a bakery that creates dairy-, egg-, soy-, and gluten-free cakes and cookies. It’s a must visit when you are in town. Everything was AMAZING! Also, right across the street is Irving Farm New York, a tasty little coffee place.
Great sweets - so many choices! Not a fan of the icing but the carrot cake was great. Chocolate chip cookie sandwich was great, too, but oh man! A little sweet. I wish they had tiny ones, lol. Staff could be friendlier, but all in all great options and I would visit again.
Can’t say enough good about this place if you are vegan and gluten free! I’ve been here probably 6 or so times and then I’ve also been to the one in Disney Springs the same amount of times.. love the donuts!!! The breads are amazing too, had chocolate raspberry and lemon.. the “bagel” that I had in NYC wasn’t anything like a bagel but it tasted good.. I can’t remember all the items I’ve tried but out of everything go for the donuts! I’ve had the ice cream in Disney Springs and it’s soo good, not sure if NYC has it.
Sad to say their cupcake recipe needs some tweaking, but their donuts are off the charts amazingly good. I'm not a donut person, but I'd easily turn into one if this shop were closer to me. Their donuts are the best gf baked item I've had thus far. They're now my go to bakery & I highly recommend. Adding due to recent visit: they have pretty good bagels. Donuts still the yum!
We came to NYC just for this bakery! 100% Gluten Free and Vegan! Tree Nut Free too. PERFECT for our allergies/celiac disease. We were in heaven here. Cute little shop, friendly staff, awesome music, delicious donuts, brownies, cake, bagels, cookies, etc! Going back for more today!!!
WOWZA! I walked in and although not a large selection of items, still overwhelming of what to get. I finally asked the nice girl behind the counter what the best item was. She told me Samoa Donut! Sold!! As I have been unable to have the staple Girl Scout cookie for years. It was AMAZING!! So soft, full of flavor! Awesome, awesome!!
Super fresh, right when they opened in the am. Loved the cinnamon sugar, chocolate covered and sprinkles donuts. Lemon cake was delish and apple churro was yummy- more like a donut. Was reluctant to try bc did not enjoy treats from Orlando location, but very happy we did!
Delicious and a favorite since they happen to be by my parents apt! The only complaint I'd give them is that their cupcakes and donuts always have a grainy taste to them which just tastes gf when I know from running the official gf of nyc they don't need to taste like that but I love their thin mints!
I live in LA, and we have a Babycakes near us (same company), so when my friend asked me to pick up a couple of gf cupcakes for her wedding in Brooklyn, I knew exactly where to go. I pre-ordered a half dozen. On the day I arrived, they pulled a lovely assortment with some inventive flavors (banana with maple frosting), and I also got some churros. (So GOOD!) The staff even recommended a nearby pizza place (although it wasn't as good as I had hoped). A few hours later, the cupcakes were a little dry, which is not outside of my experience with their counterpart in LA, but that also didn't stop one girl from having three. :) A great little bakery. I recommend everything except the cupcakes. The churros were even fantastic the next day.
100% GF and vegan bakery, by far the best I’ve ever had. I’m not sure what kind of deal was struck with the GF devil but their cupcakes and doughnuts are straight out of my celiac dreams. I even prefer their frosting to non-vegan stuff
Dedicated gluten free. The everything bagels were amazing... I bought only two because they were the last two. My non-celiac husband had the lemon bread (not sure what they call it) and coffee cake, which he said were better than any gluten versions he’s ever had. My daughter ordered “the bakery sink”, which was a cup full of a hodgepodge of leftovers. She will probably be eating it for a week. It would be the perfect treat for a starving artist or poor college student with celiac disease... $6.50 for a ton of gf goodies. My freezer is now full of the variety of treats we picked out for later.
Definitely celiac friendly, but for a place with such a good reputation their bakery doesn’t exactly blow me away. Their cupcakes are pretty mediocre and their doughnuts are definitely sub par. It’s also really expensive. The staff are really knowledgeable and attentive though.
I am an extremely sensitive Celiac, and I have never once gotten sick here! Everything is amazing, and it's the only place I eat baked goods that aren't my own! I have never had a problem with Bob Mills flour, but everyone is a little different (based off a previous review). It is a little expensive, but for great gluten free and Celiac safe baking, it's totally worth it!
It's heartbreaking to go to an "all gluten free" place and learn that their food isn't actually safe for you to eat. Good thing I specifically asked employees about their ingredients... I learned that they use Bob's Red Mill brand flour for all of their menu items--which is NOT certified gluten free by the GFCO, and contains about 20 ppm (parts per million) per serving of raw ingredients. If I would have listened to the reviews here and the business' claims of gluten free safety, without doing the extra checking myself, I would have gotten very sick. If you are incredibly sensitive and react to anything containing more than 10 ppm (part per million) of gluten, definitely do NOT go here--unless it's to request that they change their ingredients to be legitimately gluten free for people with severe celiac disease :( I wish that everyone would include in their reviews the exact amount (in ppm) of gluten which they are sensitive to. This is not the first time I've been led astray by well-meaning reviewers who are not highly sensitive.
Zero gluten, all vegan. Open 9a-9p or later! I bought too many items! So far I've tried and loved the cookie sandwich and the mint brownie cupcake. So rich and delicious! I also bought a thin mint cookie and a few day-old donuts, which is apparently what they're known for. Their eclair isn't soft, but made with crisp cookies with a creamy filling; good but not what I think of as an eclair. When I'm in the neighborhood, I'll keep them in mind.
Some delicious and some average goodies. We have to eat GF, but vegan isn't a norm for us. Maybe that's why we felt some of the treats were lackluster. The highlights were the lemon eclair, thin mint cookie, and lemon pound cake. I'd skip the donuts and brownie cupcake.
This bakery is a little slice of heaven for people with food allergies. It features baked goods without gluten or dairy. My favorite thing is the "ice cream" cookie sandwiches made with ginger cookies. The cream is actually their non-dairy frosting. Delightful! I also love the donuts. They taste more like cake, as they're not deep fried. Also, the cinnamon rolls are awesome. This isn't a health food store, so don't expect low calorie options. Just awesome baked goods!
I was informed that not only are all of their baked goods gluten free but they are also soy free, which was great for me as I am allergic to both. I had a cinnamon-sugar donut that tasted like lemon but it was moist and didn't crumble like a lot of gf options I've tried. I also tried a plain biscuit and was shocked by how spicy it was. Yes, spicy! I don't know if they gave me the wrong flavor or what but it had chilli flakes in it and I thought I was having an allergic reaction to it at first because I wasn't expecting any heat. I guess if you like spicy biscuits, this could be great, but it wasn't for me. Also, it was a bit pricey. A donut and biscuit cost me $9. Also, they have freshly made gf bread on the weekends.
Had a DELICIOUS pumpkin cupcake with vanilla frosting yesterday. I've been waiting for this location to open for a while and it did not disappoint. A bit pricey, but I'm willing to pay more for quality. Also, you can purchase yesterday's goods at a discount. Now when my husband gets a treat on Larchmont, I can too! Yay!
