The bakery owner is wonderful, very friendly. Excellent cross contact precautions taken. Separate prep station, separate utensils, and changed gloves and got new topping from back of store. I was impressed, and also had no symptoms after eating. (And I’m a human gluten detector). Had gluten free sandwiches. They were ok tasting. The meats and fillings were great. The GF bun was very dry but otherwise good. I suggest lots of condiments to counter the dryness of the bread. We also got GF cinnamon rolls which were good flavor but also quite dry. The cookies are fantastic! Highly recommend the ginger cookies and chocolate cayenne!!!! They are top notch 😋 Cupcakes are cute and tasty as well. My kids had donuts also and they said yum! Would return if driving through Fort Wayne again!

Great little Bakery. We found after a disappointing brunch & all were still hungry. We got some GF donuts & cookies. GF donuts were cake base type but good. We tried the peanut butter & ginger snap cookies which were great. We will definitely stop back in when we are in town.

The donuts and chocolate chip cookies were so good on Saturday I'm going back today on Sunday to get lunch! Also that carry boars head lunch meat and have a nice salad bar. "...baked goods, sandwiches, soups, salads, and more. We also have a dedicated area for gluten-free items, and our kitchen is tree-nut and peanut-free.

We think eating a plant-based diet is not only good for your health, but good for our planet, too. We use real plates and flatware if you are dining with us, and offer wooden flatware and compostable containers for carry-out.

All menu items are gluten-free and vegan, unless specified."

The GF donuts and muffins are soft and flavorful. Our favs were the cinnamon and the coconut ones. We liked them so much we got a dozen to go! Nice little cafe! Not a huge menu, but our 14 celiac was happy! (Some vegan options available as well, but we didn’t try those).

Stopped in here after reading a few positive reviews and I’m very happy I did. They use a separate oven/cook space for gluten free items. I had a spinach leek quiche and god some cookies to go. Both were delicious. They have sweet and savory with order ahead options as well. Looking forward to ordering a cake in the future.

I am a super sensitive Celiac and have never gotten sick after eating here. Their selections are delicious and there are so many choices! The gf cookies and doughnuts are to die for. They are also vegan friendly. I’d like to give them 10 stars...

Just stopped in for a quick lunch while in town. I felt safe that what I was getting was GF food, but the bread fell apart on my sandwich before I even took a bite. It was crumbly and somehow more cake like then bread should be. The brownie was better, moist and chocolatey.

Have eaten here many times for lunch. Get GF donuts whenever they have them. Recently ordered a GF sheet cake for a graduation party. Got half carrot and half chocolate with their vegan cream cheese frosting. Everyone LOVED it. None of the non-GF guests even knew it was GF, but the GF guests raved about it.

They have the best bread I have ever tasted! It was soft and the texture was amazing. They have gluten free baked goods, burgers, pizza, and soup. They have separate ovens and work spaces for everything and have dairy free options. Amazing!! 💗 I will be returning frequently.

You should definitely check this place out if you are in town. Great gluten free sandwiches, rice dishes, soups, etc. deserts too!! I like the black bean burger and donuts best. They are great about elevating flavors! It's always a pleasant surprise. And the owner is the nicest guy ever! Remembered me after I came in once, seriously genuinely great people there. I fully support this business! Couple of notes: it's inside a large art-something building that has nice metal sculptures in the front and they now close at 8 on weekdays!

Steve runs a delicious GF/vegan friendly bakery/cafe with a variety of handy, delicious meal choices for when you're on the go downtown. It is the go-to meal and snack spot for me and my kids. I frequently order the deliciously spiced lentil and rice dishes and spinach pie which is like a yummy crustless quiche. And I can't stop in without getting a GF donut, brownie or cinnamon roll. It is REALLY NICE to have a place where I can order more than just a grilled chicken salad...

Really enjoyed this place. The baker was very friendly and was able to share about ingredients to ensure I was able to eat safely. The GF chocolate snicker doodles were amazing! The GF donuts were light and flavorful. All in all a treat. If we end up in Fort Wayne again we will return!

Wow! I'm just reading the review before me and so surprised how on the same day two families could have such different experiences. I feel badly for the person before me, our family found them to be a wonderful find! Both of my kids gave them TWO THUMBS UP! My son kept saying repeatedly "this sandwich is awesome Mom!" :) Their bread was wonderfully soft and I even had to make sure it was GF it was so good! :) I had their chicken salad and it was amazing! Yummy! I had preordered some goodies because we were coming in on a Sunday afternoon close to closing...they were so wonderful! It sounds like they are family owned. Their donuts were amazing! Hard to stop eating them and save some for breakfast tomorrow! :) We also had some amazing strawberry cupcakes the lady made for a wedding. I happily give it two thumbs up...very clean! :)

If I could give it less stars I would. Way to much CC going on there, and my son said the food sucked. 18.00 for 2 boars head turkey sandwiches. Don't expect much more then you'd get a McDonald's.

After giving up gluten and dairy, this place is pure heaven because they understand my allergies and I have a lot of menu options. Have you tried the gluten-free vegan lasagna? It is freakin' awesome!!! It is made with homemade cashew cheese. If I brought this meal home, my fiance would never know it wasn't dairy cheese. Thank you for providing a safe eating option in town.
