Had a GF cupcake here. I did realize they are not a dedicated gf bakery and while they try their best to eliminate cross contamination, they cannot guarantee it won’t happen. GF cupcakes were in same case with gluten, which is usually deal breaker for me. I took a chance on one. They were quite tasty, a bit on the sweet side with a lot of frosting and a smidge gummy, but very good. I do have a slight upset tummy after a few hours, so not the best idea, but I knew I was taking a chance. Whoops 😬

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.

I have eaten here multiple times - they make their cupcakes in a separate area and use a separate tray. They taste great.

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.
