    Update: unfortunately they are now closed to the public. Assuming it was due to commercializing their product and focusing on higher profit margins. Too bad. Great to see a dedicated gf facility. They seem to be more focused on mass production and distribution rather than the actual restaurant. Brownies and lasagna are really good. The rest is okay. We have been going there since they opened and the selection hasn't really changed.

    They are no longer open to the public and definitely not a cafe anymore. We drove from 45 minutes away only to find this out. I called and advised them they needed to update their website. I'm very disappointed and unhappy.

    Not even a restaurant and you can find all the same stuff at Mariano's. I was disappointed!

    My husband and I love having a dedicated gluten-free place to go. The brownies are great - you'd never know they're not wheat based - and my muffin was also good. Not crumbly or gritty in texture at all. However, be warned that everything is prepackaged and sold out of a refrigerator in the front of the store. I really miss the bakery experience, but oh well.

    Love that it is strictly gluten free, the sign on the door even says "no outside food". I found the lasagna lacking flavor. I'm sure it is to cater to other food sensitivities, but I would not spend that kind of money on such bland food again.

    Definite 5 stars because of it being a dedicated facility!! We need more of them!! The products I sampled were pretty good, in general. Brownie was good, but GF brownies are the most common baked item I've encountered, and most are tasty. Muffins were decent but extra brown on top, not burned exactly, but not too far from it. Thought that was weird, since the cashier said she pulled them out fresh from the oven. Sampled the bread and it was definitely a GF bread. Not bad exactly, but didn't finish the piece I tried. Just not great by itself; I'm sure it would make a great grilled cheese sandwich... Something was missing... I figured it out afterwards: a sense of community. My GF community rallies around the local GF bakery (New Day, St Louis, MO). The owners listen to your story, ask questions, make suggestions. The cashier at OMG was friendly, but not helpful. I had questions about the products and their distribution and she didn't know. I had to ask for samples, even after explaining it was my first time there. All in all, I wouldn't go out of my way to go back, but I probably would visit when I can to support those that take the effort to ensure my safety.

    Chocolate chip cookies are the best. The day I purchased cookies I also got muffins. The muffins were over baked bordering on burnt.

    Bottom line: Food: 4.5/5stars, Ambiance: 1/5 stars, Service: 2/5 stars. Would buy their products at our local store but won't return to their specific location. Details: food was good but expensive. We had chicken fingers, pizza, bread and corn dogs then samples of cookies (delicious). Cafe part is very UNinviting- like an afterthought. No one was there but us and I probably won't make the 45 minute trip to dine in again. It was basically a counter, a cooler and 3 small 4-person tables. They really shouldn't advertise it as a cafe/bakery bc that creates certain expectations when someone is coming for that type of experience. The OMG brand is available in some of our local stores so that will have to suffice. Lastly, I was a little put off by the counter person. We when walked in, we were not greeted but looked over a bit like we were an interruption or an inconvenience. She ended up being generally nice, not super helpful though and I probably wouldn't have her be the business's representative that customers first interact with.

    Outrageously expensive and the frozen lasagna was awful. Cookies just so-so.
