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! I mean it’s New York, I can’t say I was too shocked by prices.
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.
Amazing! All gluten free and all so good! We had already prepared sandwiches on the best gluten free bread we have ever had! Tried a few pastries which were delicious! Cannot wait to go back and order food especially the crepes! Very, very small inside but worth the trip for such high quality gluten free food!
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.
Get the eclair!!!! Oh my god it is so good. I also really love the pound cakes they do. I initially went there because I heard they do gluten free croissants. They’re pretty good! Not as flakey as I would want, but that’s pretty hard to achieve without the gluten. If you come here, be prepared to spend a bit more than usual. I’m only giving it 4 stars because I think it’s a bit overpriced.
Went for brunch today. Wasn’t sure what to expect. Ordered several things to try...ham and cheese with fried egg, garlic avocado toast with poached eggs, pancakes and a chocolate muffin. The muffin was delicious, my son devoured it. The pancakes were delicious as well. The ham and cheese was the standout, although the egg was over cooked. The poached eggs on my avocado toast were completely over cooked, basically hard boiled eggs. They were quickly replaced. I purchased a bunch of baked goods to try at home. I snuck a bite of the lemon cake ($7) in the car and was super disappointed. Although it was a generous slice, there was little to no lemon flavor. Everything looked beautiful and the actual food was good. The execution on the dishes could have been better. Glad I tried it and hope my other sweet treats are good.
Llevamos un estilo de vida Paleo y aunque no consumimos granos ni azúcar, fuera de casa no tenemos muchas opciones y optar por comer sin gluten y sin leche es una buena alternativa, sobretodo porque lo que más urge es lo gluten free por mi condición celíaca. Además muy limpio y un trato muy amable.Muy agradecida!
A fabulous find in NYC! Visited in December 2017..We stopped by for a treat and ended up taking supper to go. A very large selection of baked goods and menu items -all were delicious and safe for me to eat. My nonGF family members also enjoyed. Worth the trek.
The eclairs are so incredibly good. I can’t tell the difference between them and all gluten eclairs. I am celiac and the whole bakery is gluten free. What a delight. The brioche rolls are also good. The small baguettes I was less impressed with they are a bit dry. The carrot cake was good. My husband who eats gluten says the macaroons were awesome.
Was super looking forward to coming here, but it was bit underwhleming. We had the eclair and like someone said in a previous review it was dry and so was a couple of other baked goods. Pecan tart was pretty good but I felt like I spent a lot to try different things and was so excited but was not worth it. Maybe it was just an off day.
Dined on 8 October 2017 for an afternoon snack. Also got a sandwich to go for eating later on the way home. So nice to be able to get anything on the menu without worrying about gluten-containing ingredients or cross-contamination. Outstanding food. Pricey.
