We stopped here on a road trip to get something special for my daughter’s birthday. She got the GF chocolate cupcake in a cup and loved it. We also got GF strawberry cupcakes and they were delicious, too! Neither of my kids with celiac had any adverse reactions. Side note - the GF lunch at the (very) nearby Mellow Mushroom was also delicious with no ill effects.

Gigi's has only one kind of gluten free cupcake per day. We had the rich chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing. They had no cookies or no other gluten free dessert to offer. I consider this a pot luck deal, you have to settle for the gluten free cupcake of the day. All the other good looking stuff had gluten. The one cupcake was celiac friendly.

Gigi’s makes fresh cupcakes daily, but there are a limited number of gluten friendly cupcakes— so they’re first come-first serve (unless you place an order in advance of course). They have two standard flavors year-round that are gluten friendly (“triple chocolate torte” & “wedding cake” which is a vanilla with buttercream frosting). They typically have a third flavor that is alternated based on the day/season. For example I’ve had a pumpkin caramel flavor during the fall, but presently (winter) they have a Banana Caramel Crunch option that’s gluten friendly. I found this location of the national chain to be just as good as other locations that I’ve had positive experiences with previously.

They will be happy to give you ingredients of cupcakes when needed for allergen concerns! The cupcakes are made with rice flour. They use real sugar, not anything artificial! They do not claim to be celiac friendly. They boxed my cupcakes separately from my husband’s non GF cupcakes, keeping cross contamination from happening. The GF cupcakes are kept in a case separated from the others. They do not offer dairy free options, I am unsure of other allergens, but they happily will answer for you over phone or in store. The cupcakes are very delicious!

Gigi’s was delightful! My girls kept wanting to go back there. Our family is very celiac but we didn’t get sick and there was no contamination. The cake is delicious and the frosting is heavenly. Go here

Very good! We got 2 cupcakes and it was a nice treat. They have a lot of frosting on them and are VERY sweet. I could only eat half of one.
