Everything we tried was wonderful. I am Celiac but my husband isn’t. He enjoyed his pie just as much as I enjoyed my treats.

Big selection of gf pastries! I have found a few items to be a bit dry and some to be lacking in flavor, but as a whole it’s a great bakery. Very good at labeling other allergens!

This place is amazingly good. I got a chocolate cupcake and I’m not even that big of a fan of chocolate cake, but it was amazing- not dry or crumbly, delicious frosting. The muffin I had was moist and delicious.

I will be back!!

Ate a pb choc chip cookie that was sooo good! The softb pretzel was ok, just not what I remember soft pretzels being like pre celiac of course. Got a salad at lunch with some sort of garlic dressing that was really good but pretty small, ate a choc cake of sorts that was ok but not great!

Wow! The most delicious vegan/gluten free donuts I have ever tried. They have two options (one is vanilla something and the other is like pink sprinkle donut). Both are incredible! They also have vegan/gf carrot cake which is amazing as well. Lots of other options not mentioned for people with allergies/sensitivities or fad diet seekers. I also tried the lavender latte and it was very tasty! Totally worth the price!

Donut was quite delicious! The pretzel was pretty dry - to be expected for gluten free, but there was no moistness to speak of. Would have appreciated it being a little softer for being fresh baked

Pleasant and bright bakery/coffee shop in northwestish Portland. Great selection of sweets and treats. Coffee was light and flavorful. Definitely recommended!

Quiche with cheese and broccoli was delicious, if a bit rich. I like the crumby, grainy sugar donuts but my friend didn't. Loved the holiday gingerbread men. Still working on trying other treats and bread.

Amazing! I had the best quiche ever with a flaky crust (how do they do it? Tapioca?). It was goat cheese, butternut squash and carmelized onions. Also bought a smoked cheddar scone for later! Really phenomenal spot!

I’ve been interested in this place ever since I found out it existed. And for good reason! I tried it this morning and it’s AMAZING. I got the pink lemonade doughnut and the lemon poppy seed pound cake and both were so good and I couldn’t tell they were gluten free! Service was great too. I highly recommend this place.

Great bakery! In terms of gluten, I felt completely safe. I was slightly disappointed because there were very limited dairy free options. Didn’t use nut flour which was a plus as I am peanut and tree nut free as well. If you’re solely avoiding gluten, this is a good bet!

I love this place. By FAR my favorite GF bakery in Portland for sweet stuff. I love it because it isn’t overly sweet like other places I’ve been to. I like sweets don’t get me wrong, I just don’t like feeling sick after one piece of cake (I’m looking at you Petunia’s).That cinnamon roll is to die for. Also the cheesecake. Also the donuts. Pretty much everything I’ve had has been perfect.

The sweets I’ve tried from here are pretty good. The house salad was also pretty great. The vegan savory tart, however, was super bitter and neither my husband nor I could eat much of it. Still giving 4 stars because they have a totally GF kitchen.

Inviting little bakery and cafe. 100% GF and also lots of dairy free/vegan options. Small food menu, had the savoury vegan tart for breakfast. The crust was very good! Only minor complaint was that it was not well heated. Also had a lovely raspberry glazed doughnut (nice to be able to partake in the doughnut trend that is prevalent in PDX 😜🍩) and the soft pretzel to go which was very good.
