    I agree with Jessica, really excited to find gluten free rolls. Price ridiculously high for a small roll and the roll is solid/ lacks any flakiness. I have made my own rolls and know the quality can be achieved. Recommend you try a new recipe and decrease the cost

    I was really excited to find gluten free cinnamon rolls. They were quite the letdown though. They were very pricy and were small. It seems like after spending $14 for two I would have felt satisfied. I am giving them an extra star because they use a different display, a different work space, and changed gloves multiple times. A+ for GF understanding/care, C- for cost/quality

    The roll was very over priced. Tiny roll for $5.60 plus tax. While finding gluten free is nice, the mark up is disappointing.

    The GF cinnamon roll was incredible! All the G F items are under a glass covered cake plate to avoid cross contamination. GF Brownies and cookies are available too! Yum

    Got a lemon scone, it was very dry and had no lemon flavor at all.

    Clean trays between gluten and GF food, but everything's made in the same (small) room.

    GF pecan pie: the pie crust tasted stale, the filing was pretty good, but I ended up getting sick immediately after. :-( GF M&M's Cookie: Soft and yummy! However, I just tried this right after having the pecan pie to write this review. ☺ so still have gluten symptoms. I wouldn't go back. I would not want to risk getting sick again. And it was a bit pricey too.

    Tasty and delicious-- a bit pricy, but everything is made on site.

    I would recommend this to my gluten friends. Very good selection of cookies, bundt cakes, cinnamon rolls. I had 3 wonderful items: Orange bunt cake, cinnamon roll with pecans, and lemon scone. Me: I'm highly sensitive to gluten! I know within 15 min of eating gluten. I ate 3 items here and did not have a reaction. I ran the big sur marathon while visiting Monterey. Staff: trained and have knowledge about gluten. Items are made in house on separate equipment then gluten, different ovens and different area then gluten. I decided to try it. I didn't react and I'm very sensitive. Orange bunt cake: Rocked!! Yummy. Moist and really good flavor. I would order it again and take 1 for the road!! Cinnamon roll: Good. You can get gf cinnamon roll with or without icing, with pecans or without. Nice to have options especially for gf people. I chose cinnamon bun with pecans and icing. I really liked the pecans and roll itself. My friend said it just as sweet as the regular gf ones. I'm not into really sweet things. I ordered it just because I've never had one and I always watched my friends eat these (at cinnamon bun in the mall). Now I know what it taste like. Lemon scone: Good. I liked it because it wasn't really sweet. I wish it had been more tart.

    while they have several gluten free options they bake everything in the same environment. the staff didn't change their gloves and placed my fork directly on a gluten filled countertop. needless to say the only thing I felt safe consuming was a boxed orange juice. my husband are my $7 cinnamon roll and said it was dry and old tasting. I would stay safe and stay away!!!

    Yummy pies and cookies! We had a GF berry pie and GF M&MS cookies. Both seriously yummy! They also have GF white and multigrain bread and sandwich fixings. Almost are lunch there, but we had PB&J in the car waiting for us. Decently priced. My son had the non-GF moon pie cookies. He wanted more! Love the fact they had their GF separated from reg. Highly recommended!

    Very good cinnamon roll with frosting and m&m cookies. Gluten free items kept separate from other items.

    I was disappointed in this place due to my high expectations. Gf cinnamon roll was small, dry and overpriced in my opinion. But I'm spoiled with a fantastic gf bakery back home (mariposa). I was grateful for the option, and they also had gf and vegan cookies. Worth a trip if you're in the neighborhood but not a destination joint.

    Cinnamon Rolls, cookies, brownies in segregated containers away from the gluten items.
