Excellent cupcakes! Wouldn’t recommend for those with high sensitivity, as they are not a dedicated gluten free bakery.

Not a dedicated kitchen, but they do try to limit any risk for exposure. They offer gluten FRIENDLY, not gluten free. And they have a disclaimer clearly sitting on the case. We go there every couple of months and have never had any issues.

They clearly state that their cupcakes are NOT CELIAC SAFE, which means they ought not to be labelled gluten free in the first place. It really bugs me that places still get away with this.

I've had a few of these and never been sick. Flourless chocolate is my favorite.

They have a sign up specifically stating that although they offer gf cupcakes, they do not suggest those with Celiac eat them. They did say gf cupcakes can be ordered in advance and then they would be made first thing in the morning in an attempt to cut down on possible contamination. I haven't decided if I'll try that route yet.

The cupcakes here are okay. I had the GF lemonberry and there was way more icing than cupcake. It was overly sweet and just wasn't anything special. Next time, I plan on trying the peanut butter chocolate. It makes me a little nervous that the GF cupcakes are in an open case with the rest of the gluten cupcakes. My friend got a gluten cupcake and the lady asked if we wanted them in the same box. Apparently they're not too concerned with avoiding cross contamination.

**UPDATE** I did indeed get sick from these cupcakes. They are far from Celiac safe.

It's fun to be able to get cute cupcakes any day. The staff is helpful. We've never been sick from these cupcakes. We don't really like the flavored that aren't the flourless cake-- strange texture. I also don't think the frosting tastes that great. It tastes about like what I expect from canned frosting.

The service here is phenomenal. They are very helpful and give specific instructions about gf if you ask them. I have Celiac Disease and have had cupcakes from here 3 different times,and have never been sick. We just ordered for my little boy's birthday and they were beautiful and delicious. Great place!

GiGi’s offered about 10 different flavor combinations of cupcakes. The chocolate with fudge icing was yummy and very rich. The cake was like a brownie. I also tried the wedding cake cupcake. Excellent! I bought a chocolate caramel, but haven’t tried it yet!

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!
