The gluten free items are made in a shared kitchen and on shared equipment. They use no special procedures to prevent cross contamination. In fact they bake gluten free goods and gluten containing goods side by side. I got very sick after a friend bought gluten free items for my birthday from this bakery. When I checked it out myself, they had a warning about cross contamination. I spoke with the staff and management— it is very upsetting that they are aware of the cross contamination, but do not attempt to minimize it let alone prevent it.
They post signage about cross contamination due to use of same equipment for regular and items made with non-gluten ingredients. This is EXACTLY the same as a packaged product label stating "made on equipment shared with wheat, etc". In addition, it's been well documented that flour remains airborne for more than 24 hours so consuming anything, even coffee, risks ingestion of flour dust! For those with celiac disease, NO place that uses wheat flours is safe. Don't risk it.
My daughter got severely ill twice from this bakery. All she ate was a slice of bread and a cake pop. Once nearly landed her in an ER. I am a nurse and it seemed more of an allergic anaphylactic reaction than celiac. I a cake pop and a cinnamon roll here once and did not react, and I am a much more sensitive celiac. My advice is don't risk it. We will never eat there again. I was very surprised to hear other people had similar experiences.
I have Celiac. The first time I tried a "Gluten Free " item, was on my birthday. I got sick. The second time was on my son's 16th birthday. I explained to a manager what had occured previously. She was very polite and thanked me for letting her know. She gave me a Cinnamon Roll to try that was individually wrapped for free. Asked me to let her know what I thought. I got that Cinnamon Roll home, ate it and within. 30 min I was so sick. it was painful and lasted for 7 hours. I phoned to let them know what happened. She promised she would look into it and let me know what she discovered. She never called. Months later I was getting my hair done and one of the customers was talking about a similar experience. She discovered that the bakery had been using Barley Flour in their GF items. Barley Flour is NOT gluten free.
Heed their warning of cross-contamination if you have celiac. I didn't and got very sick
My mom has Celiac's and was thrilled when we found a bakery that was gluten free. She was so excited to have "real" baked goods again. Unfortunately after eating either a cupcake or muffin (I don't remember which) she became very ill. Maybe this place is ok if you have a mild allergy but by no means is it gluten free. I believe they have since posted a sign that states their food is not suitable for people with allergies. It makes me endlessly angry because this essentially means they're selling the fad gluten free diet. This make life really hard for people who truly can't eat gluten because it encourages the idea that gluten free is an option and a weight loss/health diet.
Had the most delicious gluten free blueberry muffin.... Really enjoyed it and the atmosphere . I'd like more of a gluten free variety . I'd definitely come back!!
Awesome lemon cake and the kids didn't notice a difference
My daughter has Celiac and got sick here after eating the gf bread, cookies, cupcakes. Later, which I was thankful for the honesty, they Thais that they were using barley yeast in their bread. 😣 haven't been back since.
The cherry turnovers are the bomb. They have a lot of good sweets and the staff is nice.
