We have never had better GF baked goods! Every time we travel we try to find a GF bakery. This is by far the best we’ve had! The donuts and brownies are amazing. We are headed back before we leave town to fill our suitcases!

We visit Scottsdale often, but have never been to this bakery in the past. Since this trip was longer than usual, we decided to check it out. We purchased the French Bread pizza, cayenne pepper cookies and breakfast sandwiches and they were all excellent. My celiac daughter ordinarily won't eat breakfast sandwiches and she ate the entire thing!! The pizza was amazing! Loved the cookies! I wished we lived closer so we could take advantage of trying out more items sooner rather than having to wait until our next trip!

Was excited to check this out on our visit to Scottsdale. I must be spoiled with some amazing GF bakeries in Chicago, but the two things I had from here were a miss taste wise.

Both the doughnut and the yellow cupcake tasted strongly of cinnamon (and they were not cinnamon flavors) and were both very dense and dry.

But they also serve breakfast and lunch. Cinnamon rolls, bagel sandwiches, chicken strips.

All excellent and completely safe and GF. Don’t miss this place.

Bought bakery staples like hamburger buns, pizza crust, and donuts. My picky celiac son loved them all! We’ll keep stocking our freezer with great bakery options from GFB. Plan to try their turkey dressing next Thanksgiving.

Technically we visited the Phoenix location. I imagine the food is similar, but bear that in mind for the vibe/service review.

Dedicated GF. Food was pretty good. Most items had great flavor and texture, and they have a handy chart for how to defrost/serve items from the frozen case. Couple misses - burger buns weren't stellar texture and someone slipped with the almond extract on the cherry almond bundt (i.e. there's no booze in it but the icing tasted overwhelmingly of alcohol). Overall a good little cafe. Counter girl was very sweet and service was quick for dining in.

A great dedicated gluten free cafe and bakery. I ordered a Ruben for lunch and had a donut with sprinkles for dessert (like a grown up should). Everything was delicious! The staff were super polite, and they even had a few tables to enjoy a sit down meal. I only frequent dedicated GF facilities because I’m paranoid like that, so this place was an absolute gem!! Next time I’m in Arizona I will definitely be back!!

"good for gluten free"... I HATE when people say that. May we get away from that, and find places which are simply amazing.. and happen to be gluten free? This place was "good for gluten free".. the cupcake I had was dry. It wasn't great. I've had much better gluten free bakery items, many times.

This is a really neat gluten free bakery, great to have for someone who has to be gluten free. I got the vanilla-sprinkled doughnuts. They aren't really doughnuts but more like mini cakes. They taste good all the same!

My husband had a toasted bagel with egg and turkey bacon, and I had a cinnamon bun. Both were absolutely delicious! It’s been so long since we’ve enjoyed either of these food items. The cinnamon bun was warmed up with a scrumptious icing. They also provided us with a list of all the restaurants that carry their baking. This was super helpful finding local restaurants that were GF friendly.

Best gluten free sandwiches! Had a Ruben and gourmet grilled cheese(which pear! ) bread rates real and everything was delicious. Had samples of the baked goods and they all were tempting. Certainly coming back to buy some baked goods to take home. Only drawback was that it was very hot inside. Only fans so a bit uncomfortable in the hot months.

I've been buying goodies here since 2008. I originally went to the one by the 51 & Thomas. Things would go smoothly. I was also helped out by the some young girl. She was pleasant enough, but since that location has closed, I've gone to the McDowell location. The food is still good. I LOVE the sausage egg muffins. The donuts are good. I like their cupcakes too, though the frosting is a bit too much. All in all, it is a great option for us here in the valley. My one complaint would be the old man who rings me up. He never seems very friendly. One time, I saw on FB that they were having a sale that particular day or weekend. So, I go down there, get some stuff.. then proceed to check out. I asked if I was getting the 10% off. He had no idea what I was talking about. I had to whip out my phone to prove they were having a sale.

They add B vitamins and folate to their foods so those of us who are have MTHFR and are Gluten Free cannot eat these products. Please stop adding the vitamins! Thank you!
