Items were labeled with the generic “gluten sensitive” wording. There were probably a dozen choices of desserts, but it is a shared kitchen and space.

I had vanilla ice cream with an espresso shot (affagato) and it was great. The employee was willing to get me a scoop of ice cream from a container that hadn’t been potentially touched by a waffle cone.

Gf items mixed with other gf desserts in case, chocolate mousse was on bottom shelf and has crumbs on it. Boxed chocolate was made in shared facility no one could tell me if they clean lines. Was able to some ice cream But was disappointing overall. The bon bond looked divine

So good!! This place was delicious! Lots of gluten free and vegan treats! Everything was clearly labeled and packaged separately for the most part.

Delicious, luxurious treats! They have gluten free goodies in separate cases on top of the bar. The coconut macaroon was super delicious. Most of the non bond are gluten free. We got a box with dark chocolate bourbon, raspberry, cranberry, lavender honey, dark chocolate caramel, praline and cream, dark chocolate turtle. They were all super delicious.

The way they have the case setup the GF items are on the bottom of the case BELOW all the gluten containing products. Because of this potential cross contamination, I would say don’t eat any of the GF products. And Because of this cc issue I will rate it at a 2. However, you may be able to indulge in the hot chocolate or the liquid truffle. I have celiac and am trying the hot chocolate- pure dark. The staff informed me that the pot and kitchen area that this is made in has no gluten. I will update on if I get sick or not.

The chocolate creme brûlée is to die for. But you won't die. Because it's gluten free.

3/5 because there are gluten free options, and even dairy free too, but the staff isn't always knowledgable, and I found this to be hazardous

Moved original location up the street in Nov 2014. Line out the door all day but worth it for this hip dessert spot. Lots of GF options marked on their menu including most of their truffles. Don't stand in line for truffles only- walk down to the next door for truffle shop and no wait. Nice vibe. Delicious hand crafted chocolates, cakes cookies and chocolate drinks. YUM.
