    I have celiac and although they had a disclaimer saying they cannot guarantee there would not be cross contamination, I had to risk it to get the biscuit--or breakfast sandwich if you will. I ordered the breakfast sandwich on GF bread and although I'm never excited to pay the $2 up charge it was totally worth it as the sandwich was HUGE (my husband ordered the same on regular bread and it was much smaller) and super delicious. When ordering they asked me if the GF was a preference or allergy, which I appreciated as well. I did not get sick and I left super full, would definitely recommend!

    I had the breakfast sandwich on GF bread. It was absolutely amazing! HUGE sandwich, I ate it in three sittings. It even tasted great cold! I was diagnosed three years ago with a wheat allergy. I have found some decent GF bread in stores and from local bakery's. Flour Bakery has the BEST GF bread around!! SO flavorful and didn't crumble like most GF bread does. The egg was delicious and so was the bacon! I did not have any reactions at all and I have a severe allergy. I can't even eat anything that has been cross contaminated without getting sick. That did not happen here!!!

    Changing my review to one star. We went back for dinner and after checking to make sure they had gf bread the five of us placed our orders. After getting our drinks they informed us they have one piece of gf bread and they could try to make two sandwiches out of it. After STILL charging us for our drinks (obviously we had to go somewhere else) we left. For this reason I am giving it one star. My previous rating: As far as a gf bakery they only had two items. A huge disappointment for my kids. It was a choice of creme brûlée or almond meringue cloud. I don't think you can consider yourself gf with 2 items. Sorry. Perhaps the sandwiches are better. Hence the 3 stars.

    i tried the roast beef samwitch. it was very good and really large. asked before ordering if they had gluten free bread today. cashier checked instead of just saying yes which made me wonder how often they didn't. place is nice but tight seating.

    I didn't get anything because the crowd made me worried that any gf prep would be ignored due to time. There was gf cookies, salad and bread. The worker there highly suggested that I abstain from eating there because of my needing gf due to celiac.

    Ordered a sandwich on GF bread (listed on menu) only to be told they didn't have any right now. They only had 2 GF baked goods, but neither looked appetizing so I didn't try them. Disappointing overall.

    They have gf bread which they make most of their sandwiches on. Some days they have a gf muffin or cookie. Not much choice and the risk of cc is ever present but I’ve been back a few times without incident. And, the sandwiches are good so I take the risk

    Yummy gluten free food, but possible cross contamination.

    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.

    Not sure how clean prep areas are- did see that the woman changed her gloves several times, and they did ask if it was preference or allergy. Bread was pretty good though- kinda like sub roll. I only went because work catered only sandwiches and it was right near by. It was my only option but I didn't get sick!

    The gluten free options I've had were not great. And as the previous reviewer said - gluten is everywhere. All of the pastries are in the same area, etc.

    Great. But it's called flour. It's everywhere. Highly doubt anything is actually edible for celiacs, but oh so delicious. Damn this disease.

    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.

    Not a lot of GF options but their almond macaroons are excellent and happen to be GF.

    Got the breakfast sandwich on a salad with fresh grapefruit juice! Awesome place with delicious gf options! If I lived in Boston, I'd be here every day!
