Mariposa is amazing! Great gluten free sandwiches, baked goods, frozen pizza dough, etc. Everything is gluten free and clearly labeled with allergens. I am very sensitive to gluten and have never had a reaction there.

It’s mandatory to wear a mask. So don’t forget one before coming. Totally worth it, can’t complain one bit.

When you walk in to the left is baked GF goodies/ pasta /Gram crackers. In the fridge there’s a a variety of GF items such as pie crust,ravioli,bread, pies and etc.

Then you get to the bakery section! Holly molly! Talk about a complex decision on what to get. Everything looks perfectly delicious 🤤! We got the orange scone and the Apple fritter . Orange scone was explosive my husbands says😅. And my Apple fritter was cold and slimy but still good. I should’ve asked if it was possible to warm it up.

Then you get to the cupcakes that also look cute and delicious ! And then you reach the register . They offer sandwiches, breakfast, bagels ,pizza and much more ! A little on the pricey side but this was a treat! Hard to find all GF spots!

We got a bagel with cream cheese, bacon, tomatoes,cucumber and arugula. Delicious! You would never know it was a gluten free bagel. Just next time I’ll ask for light cream cheese .

We also got 2 small coffees with French vanilla flavor w/sugar and cream. Coffee was strong and tasty.

It was totally worth the 33 mile drive. I want to come back and try the chicken pot pie!

This was my first visit. The food was OMG good. It has been a really long time since I had a baguette since I am now Gluten Free. My Turkey Sandwich was on their amazing GF baguette that even had the crunchy outer crust on it. My Husband had the Ruben and he too said it was amazing!!! The cupcake and cookie we got we fantastic. I highly recommend this place. I had absolutely no gluten reaction. I have only high praise for this bakery!!!

I’ve been to GF bakeries all over the country and this is rated #1. The sandwiches are great. Cinnamon rolls, molasses cookies, croissants- all amazing. You can’t go wrong with anything you choose! (Difference Baker outside of DC still wins for best cookie.)

I have been a regular here for years. The cinnamon rolls are my go-to. The breakfast sandwich with bacon is pretty good too. I also loved their seasonal mini bundt cakes. Specifically, the Mexican chocolate and maple ones. The menu has a wide variety of goodies, and be sure to grab some garlic bread from the freezer. If you love here, or are visiting the area there's no reason to not stop by and treat yourself.

I’m new to the gluten free scene. I’ve gone to this place every weekend for the past month and they’re always great! The pastries are made fresh, the sandwiches on the menu are amazing, the staff is always friendly and kind. I haven’t found anything to dislike. I’m so happy to have found a place that I can eat and doesn’t make me sad or sick!

I love visiting gluten free bakeries when I’m out of town and specifically made a point to visit Mariposa while I was in the Bay Area. My group and I tried several offerings: a breakfast sandwich, French toast dippers, a spanakopita pastry, a croissant, sticky bun, pop tart, and bear claw. All were delicious! I would recommend sticking with the pastries as while the sandwich and French toast were good they weren’t unique. Our favorites were the fluffier pastries like the croissant and spanakopita pastry which are hard to find elsewhere. I would absolutely return!

This is the very first restaurant I went to since being recently diagnosed with celiac disease, as I am fearful of resturants now in regards to cross-contamination. So, I was invited to lunch and was told to choose a restaurant. I Googled gluten-free restaurants near me, and after reading so many reviews for various restaurants, this restaurant stood out the most to me with their reviews. Went here a week ago on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and had the best experience. The employee taking my order ensured me the restuarant was a dedicated celiac friendly restaurant, so that calmed my nerves. I ordered the B.L.A.T. w/o chipotle mayo, and instead of romaine lettuce, I noticed the sandwich had arugula which I didn't mind at all, and for dessert I ordered a cupcake. The bread on the sandwich was lightly toasted, and overall the sandwich tasted delicious w/o mayo for me. Loved the crunchiness of the bacon. The cupcake I ordered was like a birthday cake with the rainbow sprinkles on top of the frosting, tasted fresh and was very moist. The ambience was great. The employees were friendly. It was busy and crowded, plus the music selection was good as we sat there and ate. Pricey, but I will definitely be returning.
