    While the place is completely gluten-free, and I didn’t get sick, the quality was subpar. This place is, unfortunately, vegan, and they use Daiya, which is the most disgusting vegan cheese I’ve ever had. This completely ruins all of the sandwiches/panini that have cheese on them, so I would recommend saying no cheese. I also got a lemon muffin, which was good after I scraped all the frosting off, and a cinnamon roll which tasted all right, but was so sweet that I felt like I was going to vomit after eating it. They fall into that trap of adding extra sugar to make up for the lack of flavor, when they could instead just make a better tasting recipe using a wider variety of gluten-free flours.

    They were out of stock of several items Sunday afternoon; however, I got the last plain bagel toasted with some cinnamon butter and apple slices. It was dense and a bit doughy in the middle, but maybe toasting it a bit more would have helped. The s'mores cookie was good but the chocolate chip had mini chips and I couldn't taste any chocolate. They did have peach cupcakes; however, the icing is made with soy, so I couldn't have one =( This bakery is also vegan , so if you have a soy allergy be careful.

    Went in and had a decent panini. There weren’t a ton of options on a Sunday afternoon, many of the items were out of stock. The flavor was OK, however they only had vegan cheese and if you aren’t used to that I can make for an odd melt.

    Great family owned GF facility. I had panini for $9 and it was excellent! My non GF husband even loved it and the donut! I was very satisfied, pleased with the meal and service!

    Have never had a problem with getting sick here- every item is gf and vegan and nut free. The chocolate donuts are amazing, cinnamon rolls are great! Cupcakes are also delish!

    Worst cookie and brownie I’ve ever had. Was excited to try this place and I’m not picky at all but the cookie was so crumby and has no flavor!

    Edit: ugh I wanted to like this place so bad! I was in the area today and was craving a sweet treat so I stopped here just to see what they had. I ended up leaving with a carrot cake cupcake. Ick! It was dense and undercooked, and the carrot shreds were tough and chewy. As someone else mentioned, I’m pretty sure the frosting is from a can. Don’t waste your money here! Ehh. Definitely gluten free but I’m never happy with my purchase. Everything is bland and not like the gluten-full version you crave. Ordered a brownie today and was so let down. Tasted like Texas sheet cake or a cocoa flavored corn bread. Idk it was odd and NOT a brownie. Not very chocolatey, more like cake, and it crumbled apart. Sure stop here if you are desperate for a gf baked good but don’t have high expectations. I’m sure Jennifer Lee is a great person but I just can’t come here again.

    Went into Boston for this place. Definitely not worth a trip in. Bought several items and planned on freezing them. I licked the frosting off the cupcake and swear it was pillsbury frosting. The cupcake was hard and heavy, only took one bite of it. Also purchased a brownie, cake ball, cookie, doughnut and cheese bagel. The bagel was ok. Tried a little of each before freezing and ended up tossing it all in the trash. The stuff was either too hard or undercooked. I didn’t have any reactions, definitely celiac/allergy safe. There was one girl working there and she was rude and nowhere to be found.

    Fabulous to find this for our gluten, dairy & soy allergies. We got to enjoy cinnamon rolls on the weekend and bagels & muffins during the week. She had a binder with ingredients listed and even let us read the butter tub label. So great, we loaded up with blueberry bread for the airplane ride home!

    Donuts and chocolate chip cookies were amazing! Thought about them all day, then came back before they closed for another bite. Highly recommend!

    The staff and owner are wonderful but the food sadly just isn't good. I've eaten gluten free food for years and the flavors just aren't right here. It's sad because there really aren't any good GF bakeries in Boston. I've never gotten sick here, but I have sadly composted most of the food I have ordered. Now, I get most of my pastries from Modern Pastry's GF selection down the street.

    We had a coconut lime donut and a pumpkin streusel muffin. Neither were good. I appreciate that this is a safe option, but the items we had were very disappointing. The prices were reasonable for gluten free in Boston. A safe option if you're truly in a pinch, but I wouldn't recommend it as a first choice.

    Dedicated gluten free; consistent quality. The owner is super nice, but the new girl is not very bright and sucks at explaining things. Read on the Instagram page that they’re doing breakfast, lunch and dinner now!

    meh, not great. Definitely not worth going into Boston just for that. Had a smores cookies that was decent and a lemon blueberry donut that was so so. Staff was ridiculous, didn't listen and stepped away for like half an hour during open hours so we waited around and then they were rude. Appreciated all gluten free, but didn't have a great experience.

    Nice to have options as a celiac, but the donut I got was not good at all, I couldn't even finish it. It was dry and heavy, and the flavor was dull. Very disappointed as I was so excited to try this place! The donut tasted more like a bagel with chocolate mixed in.

    Everything is gluten free, so there are lots of options. The bagel and donuts were very heavy and tasted like dough. The cannoli was really good. Was not my favorite gf bakery, but it was good.

    Did not live up to my expectations from all the good reviews I had read. Not the best service and the Bagel I had was so heavy and dense, and very hard- even toasted. I didn't even finish it, it was that bad. Maybe it was an off day but, I wasn't impressed.

    after a fruitless search in Little Italy for a Celiac safe and dairy free easy lunch, I ended up here (it's in the Boston Public Market). Very relieved to find a safe meal in a dedicated facility! Had a yummy butternut squash, apple, lettuce sandwich with habanero peach jam, and a muffin. Yay!

    Everything I've tried here from The Shroominator sandwich to power balls and sweet cakes are all excellent.

    Got two chocolate chip cookies. They were gigantic so I was expecting to save one for the next day. Not proud, but not too ashamed to say I ate both in the same sitting. They were delicious! Outside was very crunchy but the inside was very very soft, almost still doughy. Literally perfect! Will certainly be back!
