    Paradise. The cakes and baked goods are so incredible that you would never guess they were GF. And it is a dedicated facility so the huge selection of cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, muffins, rolls, etc. are all completely celiac safe. I order their bread from halfway across the country and keep a stock of it in my freezer - I only wish they were able to ship their sweets too!

    Amazing gluten free bakery! Bread is excellent, best bread I've had so far being a ceoliac. Highly recommend :) my husband came with me so is not a ceoliac and he also loved it

    Completely gluten-free facility with delicious and beautiful professionally decorated cakes, great organic coffees, full breakfast, full lunch until 4 pm and deserts all day long. The cheesecake is real cheesecake, not like that vegan sugar paste GF cheesecake you find at the supermarket. The vegetable quiche is my favorite thing on the menu. The pies are amazing. I highly recommend the olive rosemary bread. Vegan options are available. Bonus: the owners are lovely people.

    I had the Waldorf chicken sandwich with tortilla soup. Even though it was 85 degrees our. Get the soup. Thick broth, chunks of chicken, crispy tortilla strips on top. Delicious! My husband had the watermelon salad and a turkey club. All the food was good. We were there for lunch and full so we didn’t get to try any of the sweets. Safe place for a celiac.

    Dedicated Gluten Free bakery and cafe. By far the most gluten options available. We tried 2 of the 5 bread options and both had a lot of flavor. I wish there were places like this everywhere!

    Pies, cakes, bread, and tarts to die for! I was in a celiac heaven. The softest, squishiest, closest to real bread I've ever had. Cute French-modern ambience that is extremely welcoming. Hands down the best gf bakery I've ever visited.

    Sandwiches, cheesecake and cake were all excellent! Wonderful to be able to eat without worrying. The bread was fluffy and delicious. They can satisfy most any bakery craving. I cannot recommend highly enough. Definitely can’t tell that the food is GF.

    This place is incredible. I'm currently eating an apple crumble muffin and had to pause to write this review because it's so good!! The owner/baker has celic and has definitely perfected the art of gluten free cooking. I cannot wait to eat my Waldorf chicken salad sandwich on rosemary olive bread and my two honey oat bread rolls later today!!!

    Wonderful! We came to pick up pastries for a picnic on our road trip and were pleasantly surprised they have breakfast and lunch items as well. Salads, soups, quiche and sandwiches plus the beautiful baked goods. Very good service as well.

    OMG, sweet and savory gluten free heaven. On recent visit to the Santa Barbara area, I relied on Lilac Patisserie for delicious safe food. First tried their turkey sandwich on rosemary olive bread. Perfect blend of flavor. Treats, the lemon bar and brownie. I think the brownie was the best brownie I have ever had, and that includes the 49 years I was eating gluten. Next day, breakfast sandwich. Interesting combo. Coffee cake was delicious as was the blueberry scone. On my last visit I had the quiche Lorraine and the strawberry cheesecake to go. I hadn't had cheesecake in 7 years. What a treat. There crusts are light and flakey and hold together. I would love to know what their secrets are. 100% dedicated gluten free facility/bakery

    Fabulous! I had the turkey club on Brioche bread. The texture of the bread was wonderful. Not dry, a little sweet and nutty. The sandwich was stacked high with meat and veggies. You do not feel like your eating gluten free at all. Now I have decide what I want for dessert! It all looks divine!! One word of advisement, if you are allergic to gluten free oats as well, only 2 out of the 5 sandwich beads offered do not contain oat flour. That's it!!! ENJOY!!!!
