Love this bakery! Everything is GF and they always have plenty of vegan options. I’m DF as well, so I can still enjoy sweet treats thanks to Pure Love.

Great selection of GF pastries. You can purchase coffee with non-dairy creamers and egg & cheese (with vegan options) on their delicious GF English muffins.

This was my first visit and it’s curbside only. I called on my order and waited maybe 5 minutes. The person who took my order was friendly and answered my questions without rushing me. Haven’t eaten the bread yet, but the iced lemon scone never made it home for the coffee — delicious, light and lemony.

Best bakery, hands down. GF or otherwise. Everything is stellar, quality and taste exceeding all expectations. I love the English muffins; they're light, buttery, and insanely tasty. They make a great breakfast sandwich using them.

But the best of show is certainly the cinnamon rolls. You haven't had better, this I guarantee.

I'm from MI visiting my daughter and I am so glad I found this fantastic shop. Everything I bought here tastes amazing. It's always so soft and not dense at all like many GF products I've had in the past. Even my daughter says if you gave her these products without telling her it's GF she'd never know the difference. The girls up front are amazing too and always so helpful and nice. I 110% recommend this business and will always come back when visiting. Side note: the cinnamon rolls are truly out of this world.

Gave them another chance and was able to try the cinnamon buns. Totally worth it! Amazing! Could put them out at a party and no one would know they were gf in my opinion. Drool worthy! I actually bought one, went outside to eat it, and went back in to buy a half dozen! They are soft, chewy, moist, and rip apart (instead of crumble). Tried a mixed berry crumble bar which was also quite delicious.

My first review: Let me start by saying that I would definitely go back and try other products (especially want to try their cinnamon buns which they only make on certain days- you can go on Facebook to get a good idea of what’s available that day). The aroma was amazing, the dedicated gluten free makes you feel safe and you can choose anything there, and the staff were so kind- however, what I tried I was slightly disappointed with- especially having read such great reviews. The muffins were dry, the donuts and dinner rolls lacked flavor (but the texture was great!), the bagel was dry. All still edible though- I did eat everything I bought. I will definitely give them another chance!

This was my first experience in a dedicated GF bakery, and it was worth the hour drive! GF bakery items are hard to find, and for the first time in 29 years I was able to enjoy a cinnamon roll!

Get the cinnamon roll or the almond joy cookie! And if you're heading over on a Saturday call ahead and they'll put some on hold for you. They usually run out by 10. I think the only thing I don't care for is their bagels.

Omg, the cinnamon roll was best gluten free/ soy free thing I’ve ever tasted and probably the best cinnamon roll! Just the right size, frosting was great, was not dry and it was just so delicious. Coffee was good, had almond creamer, which I appreciated. My kids who are not gluten free, enjoyed their gf/sf cupcakes. The cookies and blondie were yum too. I haven’t tried the breads but the sweets were amazing!

Visiting the Hartford area and wanted to find a GF bakery. The cinnamon and raisin bread we would not recommend. The apple cider donuts and cinnamon buns were average. We wish them the best

Went here a while back, only to end up in the hospital, not from gluten but went into anaphylaxis. I ordered a “vegan” item that was NOT vegan. (Probably a simple mistake like real butter used instead of vegan butter) Either way, when I contacted them about it, they said that if something is that serious, I shouldn’t eat there. If they don’t take allergies seriously, that leads me to believe they won’t take celiac disease seriously either. Just my experience, I wouldn’t trust them.

This place is a gem! Stopped here today and got cinnamon buns and vegan hot chocolate, both were amazing. The hot chocolate was made with coconut milk, it wasnt overly sweet it was just perfect! And the cinnamon buns I thought were better than most non GF cinnamon buns, they were THAT good. The granola is also awesome!! Cant wait to try more!
