They had only one GF option, flourless chocolate…which definitely isn’t my favorite. My friends say the gluten flavors are amazing but it’s tough to only have one option. And they are all in the same case so if you are super sensitive, it might not be an option at all. Great if you love chocolate, frosting, and some risk of cross contamination.

Haven't actually gone. But not allergy friendly. I have celiac so I have to check places before I go. From their online menu: "We bake with peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, raw eggs and other food allergens. If you have any sort of food allergy, run away."

There is one gluten free cupcake that is flourless chocolate, but it’s in the same display as regular cupcakes. Other reviews made me think it would be ok, but we didn’t end up buying anything from here

Their own menu states that they use many ingredients that are on the allergen list wheat being one. In their own words, "if you have any sort of food allergy, run away."

Got my daughter's birthday cake there along with cupcakes to bring to her class. It was great to give her a normal birthday cupcake treat experience for her birthday.
