Family, minority-owned business, and the whole family seems genuinely involved and passionate about what they do. Mother (celiac) and daughter both have serious gluten issues, so the work is personal. Okay, all of that matters a lot to me, but I'm sure that's not your main question. The bottom line: Everything I've eaten from this brilliant bakery is delicious. The cinnamon rolls are legendary (and taste as good as or better than any similar but gluteny stuff from my pre-celiac disease). It does indeed taste like they love what they do. We've known about and loved Hannah's for a few years and I've always been pleased. I can't account for why I failed to review them until just now.
I had peach cobbler and a sugar cookie, both were very yummy. The entire bakery is GF. I believe the owners daughter is GF based on photos in the bakery and a conversation. They offer a variety of option, but somethings must be ordered ahead. I will be back every time I’m in the Dallas area.
Update: Still love this place! They’ve been expanding their menu and literally everything I’ve had has been absolutely amazing! They have also lowered prices but with that they have done away with teacher discounts, but that’s ok. Went for the first time today and it was amazing! The owners HAVE to be the nicest, friendliest, happiest people I have ever met, no joke, y’all! They took the time to talk with me and tell me about their top selling cupcakes and of course, they’re most famous for their cinnamon roll. Thankful I work down the street, so will definitely be going very often for my sweet fix. Oh, they also give Mesquite ISD teachers a discount, so that’s a plus as well lol HIGHLY recommend!
Please keep in mind we are a small family owned business. Our kids get sick, we have appointments, and sometimes we have to close on days that we would normally be open. We apologize for any inconvenience and we’re thankful for your understanding. CALL AHEAD or PRE-ORDER for best service. Shipping available nationwide.
Some of their stuff is really good, like their cinnamon rolls (as long as they are fresh). Some of their stuff is just really dry. I used to go there all the time, but then it was like every time I went, they weren’t open. Recently I have noticed some changes. I used to go there because I swear this is the only place you can find gf strawberry cupcakes. But they are smaller now with the same amount of icing (which is different now) so the cupcake to icing ratio is all wrong. I could hardly taste the cupcake. Also there used to be cute little icing flowers on top and they don’t do that anymore. If I don’t want to roll the dice on a cinnamon roll, I just won’t go.
This place is amazing! I tried the lemon bars, cinnamon rolls, donuts, kolaches, and a slice of pizza. Hands down this is the best food I've ever had gluten free or otherwise. Could NOT believe they are gluten free. It's a small family run place so they sell out quickly some days so I always call ahead. Great customer service and live the fact that they are family owned.
The best gluten free I’ve had. I travel allot and have tried most of the places around the US. Hannah’s is the best. Period. I was excited to find out they have national shipping during my last visit too so now I can have their products shipped to me nationwide.
THEY HAVE GLUTEN FREE KOLACHES!!!! I don't think there's anything better than fresh fruit and meat kolaches for breakfast and Hannah's did not disappoint! First I tried every flavor they had which were lemon cheese, cheese, raspberry, cherry, apricot, andouille, and jalapeno cheddar. They were all so good but the savory ones were what I came for. At only $2 per kolache it is a huge deal! I bought everything or one they had! They all freeze well so I will have andouille and jalapeno cheddar for breakfast for the next week and I'm not ashamed at all! If you need dairy free (which I don't require) they have you covered there too as the cherry, raspberry, apricot, and andouille are gluten and dairy free. This place has been doing amazing things in the gluten free world and the service is friendly. They actually treat you like you're part of the family and the mom (Larrisa) is so knowledgeable about food allergies and gluten free baking that two other ladies and I practically begged her to start a blog or vlog to teach others all the good stuff she knows. Hannah's also offers national shipping and I'm all for it! I live an hour and way and made my first shipping order for Christmas. I'm so excited to have fresh kolaches for Christmas and I can't wait!
Exceptional products. Best gluten free and vegan cupcakes we've ever had and their vegan cinnamon rolls were so worth the drive from OK. Great things come in small packages sometimes and this little gem is a prime example of that. RUN don't walk to the doors because they sell out fast.
I am visiting from UK and saw reviews for Hannah’s. We went over from Plano and it was so worth the drive! Had the banana pudding, doughnuts and the muffins and they are all amazing just got the cinnamon rolls to try .. can’t wait !! Highly recommended as not eaten a doughnut or muffin this good even in London since I have been a celiac
The location was very easy to find (ty Google maps) and sits inside an old shopping strip. The strip itself doesn't lend well to clean and crisp, but I do understand that is outside the control of the owner and this is not a complaint, just an observation. Inside however, while it was probably clean, the lack of updated paint and flooring may make others question the cleanliness. The front of the building housed 2 small tables, each seating 2-3 customers, a small confectioners chilling chest and checkout area. Inside the cases hosted about 10 different cupcake types, a few cookies, a few doughnuts, and a variety of prepackaged (their own personal packaging) of cinnamon rolls, and personal sized cobblers and cakes. *Note, pricing is not available any where and when asking the owner, she wasn't sure herself on a few items. Everything within the case looked delicious but ceremonial small sizes. Cupcakes were $4 (maybe $4.50 each) and all standard size. The cookies were on the larger but thin side, and because they didn't peak our interest, I don't remember the price. Cinnamon rolls, which were advertised as leavened (simply put they used yeast) were cup saucer sized as well as a lemon Bundt cake (same size) were both sitting in dried puddles of what looks like a simple confectioners sugar drizzle. Both of these we're $6-7 each. The owner was initially very kind, asking for us to Yelp a review to avg out negative Yelps by others who were offended when asked to return their gluten items to their cars. (Big thumbs up if this story hold true, I have yet to review other Yelp reviews posted) I located the store using Allstate Rewards, which is a program through our insurance agency that rewards us for safe driving. I have used these rewards hundreds of times from local to out of state small businesses and fast food without ever having a major issue. We have run into a few times where the individual I presented them to was unaware of them did question it, but in the end had always accepted it. This reward was for 50% off a purchase with a maximum discount of $5. It was nothing amazing, but it got me in the door, which seems to be the whole point. I tend to use caution when finding coupons from non-reputable locations, but I do consider this form as reputable. Before I go further into our coupon adventure... We ordered their top 5 cupcake flavors as recommended:. Triple Chocolate, Red velvet, Caramel Coffee, Banana Cream and Strawberry, as well as 2 cinnamon rolls. I also originally ordered a lemon Bundt cakes but ultimately decided against it for reasons later mentioned. We chose to purchase our items and leave the store since there were no visibly available options for coffee, milk, water, etc to enjoy with our cupcakes. *I will not make this mistake again, TEST the product (even just 1 thing) before making multiple choices! So why the lemon bundt cake left behind? When presenting the coupon, (which comes at a cost of points through Allstate) we're weren't just denied, but the drama to follow by the owner was incredibly off putting. While she claimed that they have no coupons and have no clue how that was out there (and perhaps that is possible) she had the audacity to first ask me to correct the issue with Allstate, this as a consumer is NOT in my control, however I did explain that perhaps her reaching out to Allstate would be beneficial. Even after I verified the location, business name and phone number were correct, she continued to speak at a high volume at how wrong I was (outside of staff, no other customers were present), this continued throughout out 3+ minute check out process (as they had to double check prices) and even while we walked out the door. Here's a helpful hint to any business, if there is a coupon out there, especially for something as minor as $5, consider taking it. Because it was not accepted, I declined to purchase the lemon bundt cake that was $7. Now I do get that the cost to make items isn't free, the staff isn't free, the location, tools, etc aren't free either. But a negative review can have a greater impact than a mere $5. Overall rating of actual experience from entering and leaving the location was very poor. My daughter and friend couldn't wait to try these items, neither child has gluten sensitivity or Celiac, but are both use to it because that's how I cook and bake. So they are no strangers to the good and bad (especially my own flops). My daughter and i chose to split the triple chocolate and her friend had the caramel coffee (which we did get two of those so we could try as well). *I won't pretend to be able to distinguish individual flavors from each other or deconstruct the finished product down to their actual ingredient list, but I will try to be as accurate as possible to texture and flavor. Triple Chocolate Cupcake: The cupcake was not moist however not so dry it reminded me of bread crumbs. Initially I felt as if I were eating a kitchen sponge with grains of grit. The flavor itself was not remarkable, in fact didn't even taste like chocolate. The icing was a deep brown color and visually pleasing. Unfortunately, I'm still questioning if this didn't just come out of a can. The four remaining cupcakes were tried later in the evening at our hotel, each cut into ¼ sections for my daughter and myself. (Her friend had since gone home) Coffee Caramel Cupcake: This cupcake was moist and the coffee flavor in the cake itself was fantastically strong (which is a plus to me). As the coffee flavor hit with a punch it didn't linger, thus allowing for a chance to taste the cake itself. My best guess is, this is the same batter used for the triple chocolate cupcake, with the same unfortunate stages. The icing itself was light and airy and flavorful. When trying both the cake and icing together however was a texture nightmare and a fight between artificial flavors. Strawberry Cupcake: Beautiful strawberry colored cupcake topped with white icing. Cutting it screamed that a moist cupcake was to come! The icing itself was dry and crunchy, but perhaps it was meant to be that way. While the cake itself was the most moist one encountered, the artificial flavoring overpowered the ability to focus on how well constructed this batter actually was. The icing was vanilla, that's it, nothing more, and I don't know how to make vanilla icing more exciting to review. The following we're the top sellers: Banana Cream Cupcake: The cupcake itself was dry and dense, but not as dense as an actual banana bread. There was no actual flavor present in the cake itself, not even the slightest hint of vanilla. If you're looking for a delivery method that will not affect flavors of other items, this would be it. The icing was an intense hit of artificial banana flavoring, sickly sweet with a kick of chemical taste. On top of the icing were crunchy something's, unfortunately I was not able to identify for sure. It was a weird texture combination but didn't affect taste or flavor, thus finding it rather harmless. Icing and cake together provided a better balance which lessened the artificial flavor, but for someone like me who LOVES banana-most-anything, I couldn't get past the fakeness of it. Red Velvel Cupcake: 1st off, red velvet is a hard one, gluten free or not, so the fact they had it available piqued my interest. The cupcake was a beautiful intense red color topped with a modest white icing. For me personally, I liked this presentation because it's the cake itself that is the centerpiece. I'll address the icing first, unfortunately where a good buttercream or even pushing the limits with a cream cheese based icing would have complimented this piece, it was topped with the same unremarkable icing from the strawberry cupcakes. But then again, maybe this was the time for the cake to speak for itself! Oh and speak it did!!! I'm going to assume this was the standard chocolate batter base used in the triple chocolate and coffee leaving the texture no different. The kicker was the color, how did they managed such a feat? Now this is one I do now how they did it, because I have in the past made the same good awful mistake with red...way too much gel coloring. If you've never used too much gel, I don't think I can adequately explain how horrible the taste is. A cupcake, a perfectly cooked steak, a piece of 5 day old trash will all result in the same flavor when using too much gel, and none of them are good. So what remained of each of the cupcakes after our tasting...well that is the sad part. We did each finish our quarter portion off all the flavors except the red velvet, one bite of that was enough. The remaining half of the others hit the trash, this was not money well spent. So what about the cinnamon rolls you may ask? While we were saving these for breakfast, they haven't even left their bag/containers. We spent the next remaining hours in a small hotel room without gas masks, while trying to expel large amounts of gas build up from what I'm no convinced was a gross over use of bean based flours. (Even today I'm not back to pretesting size) As an individual with celiac, when I travel I do carry various sized pants with me for the 'oh damn my gut is expanding from gas build up’, but nothing prepared me (or my bean and carb loving daughter) for this experience, even my shirts aren't fitting around my buddha belly. With 8 more days on the road, neither of us are willing to chance it again for a cinnamon roll. While I can understand an old building, deal with prices not listed, and even a coupon not honored, a prideful (to the point of obnoxious) owner, Hannah's Bakery still had a chance at redemption with their products. But alas, that ended up being the biggest failure of them all. Maybe this is the best that Texas has to offer and maybe this is what they consider good, but Dear residents of and surrounding Mesquite TX, there is a world out there you have yet to see, it's full of flavor that even your gluten counterparts would walk away loving.
In Dallas for a family wedding and stopped in at Hannah’s for a gluten free treat. The owner/Baker was delightful. I tried a cinnamon roll and kolache for breakfast and a red velvet cupcake to take to the wedding. All three were amazing! I will definitely be back next time I’m in town.
Let me start by saying this is a real review.. I've seen other bad reviews and the owner apparently says all the bad ones are "fake"... because people have time to write "fake" reviews?? I'm sitting here actually shocked at how this owner treats people. I was in Texas for a few weeks and tried to contact this shop to purchase some gluten free products. I called several times and could never get anyone on the phone and also messaged through Instagram on April 23. She JUST responded today asking what location. I wrote back and said I'm not there anymore but you may want to check your online hours and numbers bc I couldn't get anyone. (Which is why I messaged on ig) she wrote back rude as can be saying "she doubted" I tried calling or I called before or after her business hours. I told her that would be silly of me and that it was rude to respond in that manner. She then blocked me on ig so I emailed her saying how rude to treat potential customers that way and I'd love to talk on the phone to fix this bc I'm sure she doesn't REALLY treat people this way. Otherwise.. I'll write a review and let others know. She responded saying I was harassing her and she's going to let everyone on her social media outlets know what type of people LIKE ME she has to deal with. People who try and contact her to buy her products??? I'm still so confused and baffled that a business owner has this sort of attitude. It's truly sad when I tried to make things right to be a future customer! Doesn't it speak for itself when she responds on ig almost a month later? I feel like that proves my point of it all. Anyway, sad sad customer service here. I feel for the others who left reviews and she tries to blame the customer in all of them.
I tried Hannah's gluten-free donuts 3 weeks ago and thought it was fantastic!!! I had been craving donuts for weeks but needed a healthier alternative. This really hit the spot for me. I actually placed my donuts in the freezer and had them 3 days later. It was fresh and tasted delicious.
Let me start by saying I'm so happy that I didn't go by the last few reviews of this place and tired it anyway. I'm not sure if this is their local competition trying to ruin this bakery but my experience was absolutely amazing! The place was super packed when we went on Saturday and everyone was racing about their food when they found out we were newbies! The owner was so friendly and extremely knowledgeable about not ONLY GF but dairy free, vegan, and sugar free as well. We tried allot of the items. Hands down the cinnamon rolls were THE BEST we've ever had. The kolaches, donuts, and the sugar free low carb cheesecakes were THE BOMB too! If you're visiting the area you must make this stop! It was certainly the best GF my wife and I have ever had!
Unfortunately, I have to agree with the previous two reviewers regarding customer service. I purchased a groupon with OBSCURE and VERY misleading wording. When I went to redeem it I was told I was not the only one who didn't understand how it worked. Here is the breakdown. Purchase price of groupon $14 for a $20 voucher, but you HAVE to purchase $60 worth of cupcakes or a $60 cake. She tried to convince me it was still a $20 value because you take $20 from the $60 total which is $40....BUT add in the $14 already paid for the groupon and you are actually spending a total of $54. So the groupon was essentially a $6 value with a minimum order of $60. I realize I read the groupon wrong (like I said, the wording was small and misleading) but she said I was not the only one. I told her I was bummed out I didn't understand the groupon when I purchased it but I couldn't afford to spend another $40 and she snapped that I just need to get a refund from groupon (impossible). She would not let me at least use the $14 value that I had already paid. Nope, take it up with Groupon. If she had let me use the $14 value I would have actually purchased more baked goods as a "thank you" for being understanding and allowing me to get what I had already paid for. Unfortunately she would rather be "right" than try to make the situation right. so I left empty-handed. Have no idea what their food tastes like, but you can guarantee I will never go back especially when there are places like Company Cafe and Liteful Foods who have MUCH more affordable prices and friendly people.
I placed an order for my son’s birthday weeks in advance and paid for it. After driving over a half hour to pick it up, at the time agreed upon I was told “we’re not open yet”. Then come to find out they had lost my order. I calmly said, “oh man, we just drove 30 minutes” and the owner said “yeah, well shit happens”. I was appalled especially considering she spoke to me this way in front of my young children. She said she had been trough a lot recently, but in my opinion, regardless if your situation that is no way to speak to anyone; especially a customer. My son was incredibly disappointed and did not have a gf birthday cake for his party.
As noted by another reviewer, not worth the drive! While they may make good gf items, customer service is horrible! Save yourself time and avoid dealing with the temperamental owner. Too many other choices for gf bakeries. But if you dare, counter service only! Do not place an order here, trust me!!
I had a few different donuts and a cinnamon roll and they were all amazing! The fact that she can make things gluten free in a gluten free facility is a dream! I wish she was closer to me. She mentioned being able to have it delivered via some amazon service so I'm for sure looking into that.
The cinnamon rolls I purchased today we're fantastic! However, having Celiac, being from out of state, driving 45 minutes to get there and being greeted by a very unfriendly young lady it made the whole experience a bit disappointing. I did find another bakery close that was so much more inviting and welcoming!!
Absolutely fantastic! I have tried other gluten free bakeries and while tasty, they still left something to be desired. I purchased an array of goodies from Hannah's booth at the Dallas Farmers Market and every single treat was delicious! Better than their glutenous counterparts. The cupcakes, breads, cinnamon rolls were the perfect texture and didn't fall apart like most gluten free breads tend to do. Thoroughly impressed. Will be checking out their store in Mesquite next time. Side note about their cinnamon rolls...must try! I'm usually not a fan, but will not turn down one of these! Highly recommend to anyone! I'm celiac and my non-celiac boyfriend now prefers Hannah's over anyone else.
I stopped by this bakery yesterday around 5:30pm. Someone I work with told me you about Hannah's. I have celiac disease. At first I was very skeptical and had no intentions of trying the bakery out. I had tried a different gf bakery and was disappointed. Anyway I had an eye doctor's appointment in Mesquite. The office was very close to the bakery so I decided to give it a try!! I bought a salted caramel chocolate cupcake, cinnamon roll and five layer brownie!!! It was so good, it made me wanna slap my momma!! It was AMAZING!! I couldn't believe how moist and delicious everything was. I ate the cupcake and brownie first. Then I ate the cinnamon roll the next day and all of it was GREAT!!! As I was eating them I really couldn't believe they were gluten free!!! I was like these can't be gluten free!! Have I died and gone to heaven?
I finally had the opportunity to try out Hannah's gluten free goodies at the Farmers Market. My daughter treated me out to several treats and I took advantage try out their chocolate cake & cheese cake cupcake. I can not believe something so good can actually be gluten free. I took one bite of the chocolate cake and it was delicious but decided to save it for later, instead ate the cheese cake cupcake oh my I'm hooked. It so moist and delicious. My birthday was a few weeks ago and opted not to have a cake due to my gluten issues, so this was a real treat. Thank you Hannah for creating such a delicious treat for those of us that are gluten intolerance.
Um, YUM. I just went to the Dallas Farmer's Market today to try these cinnamon rolls everyone is raving about- and everyone is completely right. These cinnamon rolls are SO GOOD. We also got a Hunk o Love and a few cupcakes, which are also good. One thing is for sure- Hannah's has got GF baking figured out. The texture is spot on. In fact my 5yo son kept asking me if it was really GF. And I actually considered giving them a low rating to keep them all to myself. :) but of course I wouldn't do that. My son has also claimed one of the extra cinnamon rolls by marking his name on the container. That should be recommendation enough!
