Review of Half Baked Co.

1126 W Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA 91506

Overall Rating


I visited this small bakery about a week ago, and I have to say that I was a bit hesitant because I had already ordered their gluten free cupcakes for a party, and was not a fan of them. Boy was I missing out, because their macarons are absolutely amazing. I know that macarons are usually gluten free, but when purchasing at a bakery or restaurant there's a high risk of cross contamination, not to mention a different baker who may add his or her own additional ingredients. I have tried the strawberry, chocolate, pistachio, salted caramel, peanut butter, and mint chocolate chip macarons. I was highly impressed by all of them except for the salted caramel and peanut butter. My favorites would definitely have to be pistachio and mint chocolate chip (they taste like thin mint Girl Scout cookies). The staff is also very friendly and super helpful. I enjoy going to this establishment even more because of that. I still wouldn't recommend the cupcakes, but the macarons alone are definitely worth the trip. Also, I've never had a reaction, and I am highly sensitive, so that's saying a lot.

Celiac friendly?
