We went here after running in the Boston Marathon. This was delicious. I got the lemon poppyseed muffing and it was so light and fluffy. It didn’t taste gluten free at all. It had a great flavor and the texture was great. I also got the BLT sandwich on gluten free bread. The bread was okay. Not the best I’ve had but still good. I recommend you going here if you are nearby.

I can’t have dairy and unfortunately most everything gluten free has dairy in it, including bread. They have gf bread and option to put it on a salad if you want though.

They said they’d handle cross contamination, but as they made my sandwich they used the same knife to cut it as gluten sandwiches. They were nice when I pointed it out and remade my sandwich. But I’d prefer not to watch my food like a hawk. Also… their bread is ok. People saying “best they’ve ever had”… I don’t get it.

Went with my son who has celiac. The wait staff noted that it was for a celiac and prepared his sandwich separately. Their gluten free ciabatta bread is the best gf bread I’ve tried

Was a little disappointed that there was only one item. I read such great reviews. It was delicious but was hoping for a little more selection

I got the breakfast soufflé sandwich on their Gluten Free ciabatta. DELICIOUS! The bread is so good and super moist. They don’t always have the gluten free bread so you should call and ask before your arrive. So worth it.

Bread is delicious. I was amazed how good it was. But I’m not convinced they are able to control for cross contamination.

Best gluten free bread I've ordered, it's different than typical bread, has a little bit of an eggy taste but is delicious and fresh tasting. The blt on their gluten free bread is one of the best sandwiches I've ever had with or without gluten

Odd place. Not all the GF desserts are clearly labeled so I only went with one that was specifically labeled as it was so crowded I didn’t necessarily believe everything the waitress pointed to. GF oreo was terrible- very dry. I also had the green goddess dressing where they gave me GF bread but no butter. Again, dry.

the GF desserts were all around the gluten desserts. Made me really nervous. That being said I didn't get sick.

Had the double chocolate oreo and it wasn't very good. Really dry and crumbly.

The almond cookie had was excellent! Super moist and flavorful

Chocolate torte = 5 stars! This is one of my go-to GF desserts. To me, it is like a chocolate-covered tiramisu dome. I absolutely love this dessert.

I wouldn't get their GF Oreo again. The cookie was powdery and the filling had this odd texture. The taste wasn't anywhere near the caliber of the chocolate torte. I'd rate it 1 star.

The ginger-apple tart was an interesting concept. I liked the flavor profile but would prefer less ginger as presented or a more candied-ginger taste if the ginger will remain as prominent a note. Rating: 3 stars.

Seed pudding = 3 stars. Must really be eaten with the fresh strawberry garnish to enliven the flavors of the pudding.

Creme brûlée = 5 stars.

All in all, not a bad place for GF desserts/pastries. Definitely, a go-to for creme brûlée (not always available) and the chocolate tortes (is always available), for me. The other rotating GF options are worth trying as they're interesting and unconventional in the GF World.

Contamination is an obvious as it is a bakery, however they did ask and I saw gloves switch/different station. I had a BLT and this was by far the best bread I have had. It was like a foccia (spelling?), which I've never had GF. Will certainly eat here again, as I did not get sick.

This is one of those places I really wanted to work out. I'm Celiac, have been for 30+ years, and when I called about gluten free they said they have some items that don't have gluten, but there's a high risk of cross contamination.

They had several gluten free items on the menu. I had a salad and it was delicious. I was nervous about the baked goods in regards to cross contamination.
