So nice to have a bakery in a good location that is dedicated GF. I like a few of their cupcakes and their banana chocolate chip muffins are my absolute favourite. Chocolate milkshake was also delicious! However, a lot of their stuff is incredibly sweet and the prices are very high.

Kelly's Bake Shoppe is 100% gf. We can trust everything there. That being said...wow, everything there is WAY TOO SWEET and SOOO EXPENSIVE. The servings are huge and the prices sky-high. Personally I'd prefer smaller portions and lower prices.... Having glanced at some of the other reviews here, I have to say I have no idea of the politics of the owners, but the over-sweetened items, the high prices, and the lack of nutritious choices for actual meals (eg the Jamaican patties and individual pot pies you can get at Turtledoves, which also carries some good sweet-but-not-too-sweet treats) mean I won't likely be shopping here again.

If I can rate the food alone, I’d give them 5 stars—the best gluten free, vegan desserts I’ve ever tasted. Unfortunately, I’ll be boycotting this business because the owners stand by their donation to the “Freedom Convoy”.

I don’t support doxing and no one should be threatening the business owners or harassing the employees. But since it has been revealed that one of the owners donated $1000 to the cause, the owners has continued to voice their support for the protest through their business Instagram account. In their Instagram stories, Kelly’s Bake Shoppe has reblogged posts that have comments such as “thank you for standing for freedom”, “right side of history”, and “#staystrong”.

It has come out that there are alt-right personalities and white supremacists that are leading, funding and participating in the Freedom Convoy—complete with swastikas and (American) confederate flags. The truckers’ protest message has been lost and anyone who stands with the protest is standing with these bigots by giving them voice and power.

As a BIPOC, I don’t feel safe shopping there or comfortable knowing that money made at this business is being used to support such dangerous people.

The cookies were massive I had to take leftovers home. The fresh pressed juices came in reusable containers and were very tasty. The cookies, brownies, and squares were my favourite! They even stayed fresh on my counter for days later!

Very cute little spot to enjoy a gluten free and vegan snack.

Amazing. I usually base my stars purely on gluten related experiences but I just have to say that the staff that work here are incredible. They were so genuinely friendly. The cupcakes are delicious and the snickerdoodle cookie was the best I’ve ever had. I didn’t try the icecream but I’m definitely looking forward to going back!

Came all the way out from Scarborough for work booked at a wedding event. It was tough on road finding a dedicated gluten free facility, as it always is living with celiac; for me, cooking and eating my own food at home is not only essential, but also the only safe option. Last minute I found this bakery, and as cheesy as it sounds, was a dream come true. The staff was incredibly kind, and to my disbelief, also serve tea, soft serve ice cream, and more. All gluten free, diary free, and more.

Most importantly, the cupcake I got (most popular - had a cookie on top of the cream forgot the name) was hands down the best cupcake I have ever had. The whipped cream alone was INCREDIBLE. I had to savour it, taking each bite slowly to mindfully notice the texture, etc.

Long story short, I never made a review on this app, until now. Nor have I ever made a foot review for that matter. That should speak for itself.

Not sure if it was the rain but this place was packed on Labor Day. I got a black magic cupcake that was divine and the chocolate chip cookie was soft and delicious however I could taste coconut oil(flour?) in it. Ice cream seemed to be their business as everyone was waiting to get some. Swing thru if you’re in the area!

My son has celiac and I have a dairy allergy. It was so nice to be able to walk in and order whatever we wanted, without worrying about cross contamination or hidden ingredients. Everything we tried was delicious. We are from the US and I'm already trying to find an excuse to come back to visit Burlington.

Was buying cupcakes here trying to “cheat” when I first became Celiac.....found my mother buying from here for my celiac nephew. I was like “you can’t give him that, it’s wheat!!!” She was like “uh that bakery is GLUTEN FREE!!!!” So this whole time I never knew.

Great staff, great taste, and it even fooled me.
