My daughter loved the sugar cookie, Twinkie, and black and white cookie. I’m surprised the reviews here aren’t good because she said everything was delicious, and it all looked very fresh! Also the girl who worked there was super nice.

Tried the eclair, crumb bun, glazed donut, rugelach, pear ginger cinnamon roll, and cream puff. All were very delicious!! The eclair was to die for!! Even my non GF boyfriend loved it! The bakery does suggest to place food into air-tight plastic wrap or baggies if saving for a few days. It’s pretty typical that gluten free pastries do not stay moist well. We will definitely return again!

The baked goods are decent. Had the apple turnover and donuts. This morning we went right at opening. The person behind the counter was very visibly hating her job and was very unfriendly. We ordered two coffees that were completely cold and bitter. We hadn’t tasted them until we drove away and realized it was likely coffee from the previous day. Likely wouldn’t return.

It this was the only safe-for-Celiac bakery around, I’d probably rate this place higher. Unfortunately, as others have pointed out on here, many items are as hard as a rock, or get that way within a day or two of purchasing. It really is not worth the risk of breaking a tooth.

Cinnamon roll very good. Cupcakes okay but icing was not sweet at all. Donut and bagel hard as rocks and had to discard.

100% gluten free facility, which is fabulous, but the baked goods are inedible. I’ve tried it 3 times now and everytime shit is so hard or dense or just awful tasting. Had a latte too and it was, by far, the worst one I’ve ever had. It makes me sad to say it, but I won’t be back 😢

Everything I have tried from here so far: bagels, donuts (needed a zap in the microwave the next day to return it to its former glory), an absolutely heavenly eclair - has been fantastic!

Very great dedicated facility! I think the negative reviews may be from those who show up later in the day. Sometimes they sell out and wind up closing early, so if you go closer to closing time you may have few to choose from. Other than that, their selection is very big and I see things here I can never find gluten free! Their goat cheese, broccoli and spinach quiche is amazing. I love their chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon rolls. Their baguette and bread loaves are good too! I think the donuts are a bit dense, but they become softer and more enjoyable when microwaved a little. But go early for a bigger selection!! Very yummy options and so many’

Limited selection, with only a couple dairy-free options. On my first visit, in 2017, I was thrilled with my cupcakes! Back again today, I was so sorely disappointed that I felt I needed to update my review. Vanilla cupcake tasted days old; I paid $4 for it and threw half in the bin. Won’t bother going back if the quality is this variable.

Some of their stuff is really good, but when they sell you old pastries at the same high price as fresh ones and you complain, they will not give you your money back. I think that this store employes many young people who do not care about customers, and that is very bad for business. Also, the owner is never recheable. Definitely not good and caring customer service at all! They list me as a loyal customer for sure!!

While their creme puffs are too die for, their other items fell extremely short. I tried their Boston creme, regular creme, regular donut, egg sandwich jawn, and eclair... all of these were dry/thick doughy and hardly flavorful, and the donuts had a tease of creme. Overall, I travelled over an hour because of the reviews... Go somewhere else unless your really hurting for some disappointment.

This facility is 100% gluten free. They also have GF/DF cupcakes (chocolate and vanilla on a Saturday when I went - nothing special) and multiple flavors of GF/DF breads and bagels (cinnamon raisin bagels only on Saturdays). No vegan butter, though, so I had to stop at the grocery store to buy some to enjoy my bagel. Bagels are thick, delicious, and filling. GF (not DF) donuts were "not as good as regular donuts," but my non-GF company said they'd get them again. Bring cash because there's a $10 threshold to use your card. We had already purchased $29 of food and coffee when I realized I forgot 1 coffee. I wasn't able to purchase it because it was $4, and I only had $1 in cash. To-go hot coffee cup was leaking all over and flimsy, leaving us with coffee all over the car and ourselves. Somewhat disappointing in a few ways, but I'd probably go again.

Their donuts and rugelach came highly recommended as seen on reviews and the folks at the restaurant ( Plum On Park ). We got to the bakery to late and kind of wound up choosing goodies from the bottim of the barrel. We did get the rugelach and enjoyed it. Brownie was pretty good and a cupcake was enjoyed. Got a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread which is pretty good considering it's gluten free. Pizza Pocket, Scone, and chocolate chip cookies would not get again. Basically, I'm not too impressed with the bakery. The restaurant( Plum on Park) was outstanding though.

The best chocolate eclair and cream puffs that I have ever had. And I love the black and white cookies. The sandwich bread is soft and the only bread that my son will eat. Definitely worth the trip. Reserve your goods. Everything goes early.

Super clean, super friendly, easy parking and reasonable prices. The rugelach was the tastiest selection with a rich raspberry-raisin filling and a buttery crust. But we found everything had that telltale gluten-free gritty mouth-feel. Thr donuts were tough, dense and gummy. Cookie dough was lackluster and gritty. The bagel chips will be a nice vehicle for cheese or hummus, but in and of themselves, entirely lacked seasoning or flavor.

I've tried this place a couple times and it's disappointing. They seem to have one dough recipe that they try to make taste like doughnuts or cinnamon rolls or whatever. All of tastes like is dense weird bread. All of it tastes the same. I've made better things from box mix

my review is according to my experience and what I ordered.

chocolate chip cookies 8/10

vanilla cupcake 3/10. too much butter cream not enough cake, couldn't eat all of the butter cream.

cheddar biscuit thingy 1/10 . bad texture, crumbles in hand, weird flavor, cheddar adds no flavor or enjoyment. They need to revamp this completely.

I heard the bagels are good. need to try it out.

Excellent & entirely gluten free. They also do not use soy & almost no oats (only in the oatmeal cookies) for those cross-reactive types. Fresh baguettes, cinnamon rolls, creme puffs, bagels, pumpkin pie, and on & on. Get there early -- they close when they run out. Bagels go fast!!
