I’ve been looking forward to trying NoGlu as its one of the last GF bakeries I had yet to try in NYC and had heard good things. Generally speaking, I was disappointed. While everything here is gluten free and I had no worries about cross contamination, everything I ate was also sort of flat and tasteless.

First I got a quiche which was bland and very tough. In fact, both the plastic fork and knife broke trying to saw through the crust! The quiche filling itself need salt and pepper. Next I tried some of of my friends croissant. While buttery, the croissant was also grainy and heavy. Definitely not a traditional flaky and light croissant dough. Finally I got an apple tart. While the tart filling itself was delicious, the pastry crust was again bland and grainy.

All in all, I’m very disappointed and probably will not come back. I will say that the folks working there are very nice.

I was excited to try the croissant, but it did not look light, fluffy or layered at all, so I didn’t try it. I had a fairly good piece of carrot cake bread (huge slice), and a very good cookie. I thought we might be able to have lunch, but it’s more just a place for grab & go baked goods. Nice to have somewhere near the museums though.

The pecan tarte had such a light buttery crust which is usually missing in gluten free pastries, and I was very impressed. I also had a cold chicken sandwich from their cooler section, and a chocolate muffin both of which were delicious!! This is a can’t miss spot in NYC for anyone with celiac!!

okay so. this place was VERY good. employee was super sweet and i got a lemonade a banana chocolate muffin and a peanut butter and chocolate cookie. sadly they didn’t have cream puffs and eclairs but she said if you come around 12 they usually have them! the muffin was super fluffy and had a great taste! the cookie was very normal tasting. overall really good and i would recommend (especially considering ALL the food is gluten free and not having to tell servers you are celiac is a LITERAL dream) but beware that it is pretty pricey and i do have the admit that the food is not quite worth the price but i’ll do anything for a good muffin so o well

They are not serving hot food during the pandemic, but warmed up a quiche for us. It was delicious! I also tried a chocolate eclair, which was heavenly! I know most people miss pasta/pizza/bagels but I’ve found decent enough versions of those. Ever since my diagnosis I’ve been really sad about choux pastry and didn’t think I’d be able to find a GF version. Their’s was perfect, I almost cried!

I bought a lemon tart and croissant to take home as well as the cookbook that the owner published of her GF recipes. It was such a great experience to be at a restaurant (let alone a bakery!) and not have to ask a million questions or stress about cross contamination

We ordered takeout lunch from here. I had been really looking forward to gluten free baguettes from a French bakery. Not only were the sandwiches tiny and overpriced - which I could deal with - but they were refrigerated beforehand and tasted like styrofoam. They were like baguette sandwiches they might give you on a long airplane ride. Why a French bakery would ever refrigerate sandwiches with fresh baked baguettes is incroyable!

I really really loved the canele, I had never had one before. It was about $5.50 for one. I got one of their premade sandwiches for my flight and it was delicious! The one with Turkey/arugula/avocado on a bun definitely recommend. Overall I loved what I got. Wish I could’ve tried other things!

We visited this little bakery for lunch and it was amazing to be able to choose anything we wanted as it’s 100% GF. The staff were so friendly and helpful and we enjoyed a lovely eclair and cream puff. The rolls and filled brioche was also very nice, although all on the higher price side for a lunch- but definitely worth the visit and we would certainly like to return

Man, I really wanted to love this place. I was so excited by the reviews but honestly I was underwhelmed. I went on a Friday within the lunch window and found out the chef wasn’t in and they weren’t serving lunch. So I decided to get a turkey/cheese quiche and a ham/Swiss croissant with a slice of the lemon loaf for dessert. The quiche was the highlight- it was delicious. But the croissant and the lemon loaf were so dry I could hardly eat them. When I cut the lemon loaf with my fork it literally crumbled into dust.

GF but not suitable if you have other food allergies. Manager begrudgingly answered questions about ingredients. Maybe don’t work in specialty cafe if you are annoyed about ingredient questions. However, chef was very friendly. But missed allergy requests and food did not come out as ordered. If gluten only concern, it might work for you but skip if you have other food concerns. Food tasty but only decent not fabulous.

Amazing! Everything is 100% gluten free and delicious. We tried the quiche, coconut tart and cream puff - all were light texture and amazing. You wouldn’t have known any were gluten free. The cream puff was so delicious that my 10 year old son asked for another! It is expensive, but the quality and safety is worth it.

UPDATED: just had the pancakes! Wow! I eat the burgers at lunch (very tasty). The pancakes for brunch are so delicious. Light, fluffy with just the right crispness in the outside and a fruit compote that wasn’t overly sweet. Wonderful balance. Also shared the frittata which was chuck full of veggies, bacon and some cheese. The food is just delicious by any measure whether you are gluten free or not.

Dedicated facility. I love the eclairs. I saw there was a poor review for one. It must have been an off day for the baker because this place is delicious. The pecan tart, lemon tart and chocolate peanut butter cookies are my favorites in addition to the eclairs. I am less enamored by the lemon loaf and such. But before Celiac disease I never was partial to that sort of stuff. I also enjoy the savory food. I eat lunch here about once a week. The people who work here: Martin, Hazel, Kim and Maria to name a few are kind and helpful. It’s a wonderful place to go if you are in the neighborhood.

Being gluten free and dining out is always a challenge. This little gem is easy because it’s a dedicated gluten free kitchen. I will say it is expensive... French Toast $14 / Spinach & Feta quiche $15. The food however was delicious. It’s an open kitchen and chef Kim was very welcoming chatting with patrons . They had so many choices and the store front is tiny. When back in NY I will try the other items.
