No dairy-free options at all. Sad, because many people who eat gluten free can't tolerate dairy either.

Definitely one of the better gf cupcakes I have had. Wish they had more than chocolate, vanilla and coconut flavor.

Staff is knowledgeable but the kitchen is cross contaminated. They usually have very few gluten free options. Good for people who aren’t that strict!

They said they prepare their gluten free upcakes in a separate area, and they have their own pans, but they are baked in the same oven. I had the chocolate coconut flavor and it was incredibly moist and delicious! Didn't get sick.

Only 2 gf cupcake options but never gotten sick. They have mini gf cupcakes on weekends. Also have had special order gf cakes without getting sick. Very good flavor though last batch was gummy.

Delicious cupcakes. You cannot tell they are g-free. They use separate tools and wipe down the space before making gluten-free cupcakes. But it's a shared kitchen with a shared oven. The gluten-free cupcakes are baked in the same oven but not at the same time as the other cupcakes. So there is definitely a risk of cross-contamination. I ate one and felt a sick a couple of hours later. 5 stars for flavor - 2 stars for not being celiac friendly so I landed on a total of 3. A good option if you don't have celiac.

Overpriced froo-froo cupcakes. Very sweet. Only one or two GF options, so variety and selection is not here. Not on my list of re-dos. Dairy free really not an option here, either.

the cupcake I had was very good. I also had a cookie. I instantly felt sick. I then picked up one of their brochures and read gluten free is "optional ". what does that mean? so I suppose not everything there is gluten free and it's another place you have to ask the grand question "which ones are gluten free."

Kind of expensive for a cupcake, even a gluten free one. Not a lot of GF variety. Hope you like chocolate or vanilla.

They cross contaminate all of their toppings, I spoke to a manager. I had a plain cupcake with no toppings and still had an allergic reaction because the cupcakes were all touching. Disappointing that they wouldn't change such a small thing to make it safe.

When I first had their gluten-free cupcakes about a year ago, they were very dry and they hadn't gotten their recipe quite right. But I've been there twice in the last two days and I love them. Super moist. My latest favorites are the GF Coconut Cupcakes, either the Chocolate or Vanilla, which is topped with cream cheese frosting and shredded coconut. But they also have GF Sweet Vanilla and GF Chocolate Velvet. All delicious, in regular or mini. I just wish that they would start having a monthly special that is GF. The GF cupcakes are displayed in a cake pedestal on top of the display case. While I'm extremely sensitive to gluten (I react at less than 20 parts per million), they do make the GF cupcakes in the same kitchen as the gluten cupcakes. Know your tolerance level.
