While a good neighborhood bakery, they are obviously doing gluten free items more to take advantage or a trend. They do not bake separately and often “gluten free” items touch non gluten free items in the case. They do not use separate tongs.
Macrina is a great bakery but definitely not safe for true Celiacs. I live above it and get their coffee every day. However the baked gluten free items are also baked on gluten containing equipment and are not safely segregated at all. I just focus on the coffee, which is my favorite in the world
I'm giving one star because I can't give zero. My husband is sitting across from me eating a glutinous breakfast sandwich but there isn't a gluten-free item in the bakery case or on the menu. The folks behind the counter said they used to have GF oats but don't now. How did this place get five stars? Now I'm disappointed and hungry!
In Seattle for a conference, visited the bakery for some treats. Got a muffin, fruit biscuit and scone. All were very good with no reaction. The only reason I'm giving a 4 vs 5 is the young lady who waited on me wasn't very friendly at all and the gf items weren't in their own area, they were plated separately, but right next to gluten-y pastries.
