    If you could give no stars I would. This cafe needs to find another name. I drove 40 minutes do get a gluten free bagel to find that their selection was prepackaged - something I could have gotten from a grocery store. I decided to purchase the bagels to find that they were bread in the shape of a bagel.

    Gluten Free Me is not the name o the restaurant. All GF items are pre-packaged. Small amount of entire menu is GF. By the advertising you think it is 100% GF, not the case, disappointed.

    Used to be great. Now it is impossible to get your food delivered on time and they don’t sell exclusively gluten free items. Pretty disappointed.

    I'm basing my review strictly on bagels; Brought home a pack each of Sesame & Everything; when toasted, I don't find that they have a GF texture at all . **UPDATE: they recently consolidated this location w/ their other store, Bageland . They now have both names on front window, but there is nothing indicating that the varieties of bagels on the wall are NOT GF. We went in a couple weeks ago, having no idea about the change, as we didn’t look at the front window... so my Celiac daughter unknowingly ate a couple of the non-GF bagels that we took home. We thought it was a GF cafe still! Upon going there today, we noticed the new & old signage, so I asked & found out that the right side is just regular bagels. When I explained to the employee that she ate them w/o any idea that they aren’t safe & suggested to that a sign should be placed on the wall where the bagels are (seems obvious), he responded that they did put a sign on the front. I’m very disappointed that a former GF store made this change in such an inconspicuous way & were so blasé when informed of the risk they are posing to returning clientele that would have no idea unless they look at the window & happen to ask. Needless to say, they are off my recommendation list.

    Love the gf bagels and bread... but they now sell non-gf items.

    None of the hot food can be made gluten free. I’m sure the pre packaged bagels taste good but this is not a gf cafe. Don’t come here expecting a meal

    Best Gluten free food I've ever had. I had a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a blueberry muffin. They were amazing.

    As a previous review mentioned, I would be wary/use caution with this bakery. I discovered Gluten Free Me at a convention, ordered several items, and watched one of the employees handle money with bare hands and then proceed to place my items into containers immediately thereafter. I confronted the employee that he did not wash his hands and ultimately decided against purchasing from here, wary of kitchen practices. I would not recommend for celiacs!

    The first time I went here it was great... but I noticed a Quaker oat container and assumed it had to be GF... Fast forward to my second time there and I confronted them seeing the container was indeed NOT gluten free (yet let me remind you, this is a "certified gluten free" Bakery) and the lady that worked there laughed in my face and said no they aren't GF but we use them in our smoothies. I asked why do they do this, as it's EXTREMELY shady... this place is a dedicated gluten free location and they do this?! SUPER SCARY, beware! It's been reported, to the GF certification as this is absolutely unsafe & absolutely not certified gluten free like they claim. I'd avoid if you want to NOT get sick with regular oats! I confronted them and got laughed at in person, and emailed with NO reply. Extremely shady.

    What a great cozy place...the bread and the coffee are fantastic..the gentleman behind counter so pleasant and polite...the only suggestion I have is, open up earlier for the work crowd. 8am is late to open up for a working person that wants to pick something up on the way to work... Not one negative on the food, coffee, service or cleanliness...place is great! I wish they were in westchester, NY.

    I found my new go-to for GF coffeecake muffins. So delicious. Haven't tried bread yet but sure it will be great too.

    As with the other comments, I wanted this place to be better than it was. Breakfast sandwiches were just ok. We got muffins to go which were good. We also got a couple of desserts which weren't great either. I won't go out of my way to go back unfortunately.

    I enjoyed an excellent chicken salad sandwich on a bagel. My non-GF husband husband really enjoyed his sandwich as well. This restaurant is completely gluten free. There is even a sign on the door prohibiting outside food and drinks. Unfortunately, the brownie that I had wasn't too good.

    This is tough to write, but the my sandwich honestly wasn't good at all. I got a sausage egg and cheese on a bagel and it was so unbelievably salty that that was all I could taste. I am fairly certain the sandwiches are microwaved and not fresh. I have such a deep appreciation for someone opening a place like this, but the sandwiches need some love. The coffee cake muffin on the other hand was just fantastic! I would stop in again if I were looking for a muffin.

    I had a bagel sandwich, bagel was great but the 'sausage' was disgusting & they put butter on top which was kind of odd. Also got a cupcake to go that was okay nothing special.

    We got an egg sandwich on an everything bagel. Bagel was good, bacon was gross and the eggs weren't great. Also got a chocolate muffin that tasted nothing like chocolate but cinnamon and the frosting tasted like what I'd imagine Crisco straight from the can would taste like. Brownie was like something I could of got in the frozen food section at the grocery store. Wouldn't go out of my way again for it.

    Love their bagel breakfast sandwiches and blueberry muffin was good too! Great to have an entire gf cafe near home! Nice atmosphere to sit and enjoy food as well.

    I am blown away that a place like this exists! An actual cafe where you can sit down, enjoy a delish bagel sandwich. Coffee, pastries, great service ... and not a shred of gluten to be found. Amazing!

    Very nice sit down cafe. They have bagels, breads, muffins, brownies and more! I got a breakfast sandwich with cinnamon raisin bagel and it was excellent. I'll definitely be a return customer.
