    This is the best place in the area for gluten-free food. Their dinner rolls, sandwich rolls, croissants and veggie pockets are absolutely to die for. So good. The cheesecake and cinnamon rolls are my favorite sweets. I have their wonderful products delivered to me now as I don’t live nearly close enough.

    So yummy and all safe! Their “rye” bread is fantastic. I’ve had breakfast sandwich, Ruben, tuna melt, cookies, pop tarts, and more! I always bring home a loaf of rye if they are available.

    A great option - though it seems like everytime we go it takes longer and longer for hot food and staff is aloof about that. Still a big fan, but I think twice and make sure I have a lot of time before ordering food that needs to be prepared (sandwiches, etc).

    Steak sandwich was amazing. Small portion. French toast was tough and chewy. Probably using old bread. Tiny cupcakes were delicious. Baguette was awesome toasted, even a day later. Of course didn’t get sick!

    Fantastic, dedicated GF bakery. Cookies, cakes, pies, pastries, bread. You can also order lunch: gf sandwiches like a Ruben or BLT or pizza. Sandwiches come with salad or chips. They also have frozen pastas and lasagna to take home with you. A little pricey, but worth it!!!

    The food is pretty good, but they lack a little on customer service, e.g., they used to make a good veggie pizza with & without cheese. They no longer make it without, so those of us both gluten- & dairy-free are out of luck, and the won't make adjustments. Also not all products are available at all times.

    Dedicated GF facilities, which is important for those gluten free by necessity. Tasty cakes and great breads yummy margarita pizzas. Nice atmosphere. Got my birthday cake here and LOVED it!! And I am a giant cake snob (probably how I developed my intolerance).

    I come here about twice a month to stock up on frozen items. So much better than any grocery gf bread. Sweets are amazing and worth the calories. Was so happy to find this place! Ruben sandwich is great as well.

    This place is amazing! We had cookies (chocolate chip and molasses), cinnamon rolls, the Californian, the Reuben, a BLT, maple pecan Bundt (amazing), bagels, and pumpkin whoopie pies! Everything was delicious. We went for breakfast and lunch and there is actual seating at this location (San Fran ferry building does not have seating other than outside or in the general mall). There were so many choices that were also DF (and latex free). Highly recommend. Would eat here all of the time if I could! The staff was very friendly here and helpful. Wish we would have gotten the apple galette when we were there for breakfast because they were all gone by the time we went back for lunch. The only thing we wanted but we couldn't have because of the dairy was the pumpkin pie - wish they would make a dairy free version. Highly recommend!

    Wonderland. Literally, overwhelming. It was so great to have options. THE BEST CINNAMON ROLLS EVER! You can't even tell the difference. It was all amazing. We almost got through without my husband seeing the full hanging menu, but he had a bit of a shock when he looked ip. Very attentive and patient staff. Maybe the best part of the trip.

    Dedicated gluten free! They make passable replacements for a lot of gluten containing items celiacs might be missing. Good bread and lasagna, others recommend the pizza crust.

    I went in recently and got pecan pie, butternut squash ravioli, bagels, and a cinnamon roll. Everything was delicious so I am giving 5 stars. A few complaints - the crust for the pie was not that great but the filling more than made up for it! The bagels were a little gummy but still quite good. The ravioli was amazing and the cinnamon roll was perfect! I've never been a fan of their bread so I don't buy it.

    5 stars just for existing, really. So many wonderful options on the menu from pot pie to a Reuben sandwich. Fresh breads are soft and baked goods are fresh. Chocolate croissants, bagels, soft pretzels and tons of sugary buns to boot.

    Not only does everything they sell look incredible, it all tastes just as delicious! Visiting this bakery was like a dream. I ate half of what I ordered from the bakery while I was still there ogling over all the items they have for sale. So I got back in line and bought even more of everything I had just scarfed down. Mariposa Bakery sells everything from croutons, baguettes, croissants, challah, rye bread, cupcakes, cakes, brownies, pies, bagels, poptarts, cookies, graham crackers, biscotti, cinnamon rolls, bread rolls, focaccia, sandwiches, salads, lasagne, empanadas, pizza, and chicken pot pie! It's difficult not to want to buy everything in site when you visit this bakery! I can't wait to go back to San Francisco and explore more of the city's Celiac safe spots.

    What's not to love? I'm a gluten freeK! So many options. Soft pretzel would have been better if they warmed it up. But let's be honest, great environment to have some delicious pastries and enjoy your day. Weird location... Lil bit...

    Not great for people with tummy sensitivities on top of gluten allergies. They use a lot of yeast in their dough, which makes me feel lethargic. I wish I could eat their goodies!

    This bakery has everything! I can't eat dairy soy or gluten and I had so many options! Had a bagel and a Danish and both were delicious, also got a vanilla strawberry cake which was good, too. The bagel and Danish were so close to the "real" thing! You have to go to this place. They also had focaccia, challah, muffins, etc.

    This is hands down the best sandwich bread I've ever had. Really everything so far has been delicious. I am glad to have vegan options but I'm surprised at how much dairy they use... Why no Daiya cheese for pizzas? Sometimes I feel like the vegan options are an afterthought, like those options just happen to be vegan. Why no vegan "rye" bread? I love this place and am glad I've never gotten sick, but the luster has worn off a bit (oh, the privilege of being so near to a truly gf bakery!) and now I'd like to see more vegan options. Also, I recently found a giant hair in a yummy tart and it really bummed me out.

    It's so fun to go somewhere you can get anything! I've had some amazing things and some ok things. Best things have been the salted caramel cupcake, the pumpkin whoopie pie, & the German chocolate cake. All of these were fantastic & tasted normal! I love the ever changing items, I'm always trying something new.

    AMAZING. I was only visiting the area but decided to check this place out, and wow it did not disappoint. The lemon poppyseed and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins were delicious, and the texture was so unlike GF stuff I get anywhere else. The loaf of bread I got was actually soft! Also got apricot danish and nutmeal raisin cookies, which were delicious. Other products I saw were bagels, crackers, croutons, cinnamon rolls, and cakes. They ship all over the country so I will definitely be looking into that.

    What more can be said that hasn't already? Mariposa is amazing. The lunch items are super fun and the desserts are ultra tasty. Prep times for prepared food are generally slow, so don't assume you can zip in and out (although you might be able to!), but I love them anyway. :-)
