    Oustanding!! I have come here a few times and have not been disappointed. I live in Connecticut about an hour away and it has always been well worth the drive. The gentleman who owns it is very informative because of his family having celiac disease. I have had multiple treats but this weekend was blown away by the cakes. I had a slice of the Raspberry Coconut cake and the Washington Cream Pie and was amazed. I wanted to get a piece of the Red Velvet with Cheesecake but could only get 2 pieces. The cinnamon buns and eclairs are to die for as are the filled cupcakes which are pretty unique. I am looking forward to trying the filled donuts!! I have not had one in years.

    The owner was so helpful and informative of all the products and what makes them stand apart from so many other GF restaurants. And the pastries were sooo good. Never had a GF pastry so moist!

    I was given samples at the Gluten Free Expo in Providence and was blown away. I have since visited the bakery and got a Pumpkin Coffee Cake foe Christmas. Everyone ate it: even my "I don't eat GF) husband. I will be back to try everything.

    This place is fabulous!! It is small but packs a punch with the goodies. They even have filled donuts which I have not been able to have in years!! I had an eggnog custard filled and creme filled, both with chocolate frosting and just about lost my mind. I shared a Baily's Irish Cream and Eggnog filled cupcake with my sister and they were awesome too!! This place is a must try.

    Please please please go there- they have eclairs! They taste so amazing!!!! I was a little leary at first, because it’s a tiny little hole in the wall, but everything is so good I cried. I literally was a bawling mess. It’s been so long since I had a GOOD filled doughnut- since I COULD have a good filled doughnut. I literally can’t remember the last time. It was perfect! Also, the frosting on the fruit cupcakes is make with real fruit, and you can tell the difference! Please go check them out!

    Sans Gluten Artisan Barkers was a delightful find! We happened upon this amazing place while out and about. Tom was beyond welcoming, kind, knowledgeable and a joy to speak with along with one of the wonderful bakers! They pulled out all of the stops to make my day special!! It is not often when I find a place with as many choices to choose from that taste as amazing as these goodies! Please! Please! Please! Keep doing the amazing baking that makes my tummy sing for joy!😁 You my dear bakery have made a customer for life even if I have to drive all the way from western MA, thank you very very much!!

    Yummmm! A beautiful array of treats. They take a lot of pride in their work. Lots of creative desserts as well as good old fashioned faves that are usually impossible to find gfree. Recipes are perfection in both flavor and texture.

    ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! Products are all made from scratch with fresh and natural ingredients. The bakery is celiac and allergen friendly. Baked goods are fresh, tasty, and don’t taste “gluten free!” I haven’t been able to eat an eclair, cinnamon bun, or Boston cream donut in years, Sans Gluten has ALL of these yummy options and more!

    My boyfriend tried to get me a gluten free cake and found this place. Of course he did this last minute, so all he could get was a box of assorted cupcakes. * This was the best thing to happen. * I loved every flavor. Some were very unique and even filled with cream and caramel. Best birthday for me!! I even let my boyfriend have a taste.Can't wait to visit this bakery.

    I went to a wedding in RI and the Bride remembered us Celiacs. There was a cupcake tower and one layer was gluten free. OMG they were so good that the non celiacs started eating them. My friend told me the name of the bakery - Sans Gluten. Before we left RI, we stopped by the bakery. I was in heaven. Over 20 varieties of cupcakes and 9 of them were filled. Cinnamon buns and eclairs. I could go on, but I would have to list their entire menu. If you are visiting, this place is a MUST STOP!!

    Have been 3 times and the food had been great. That being said, I placed and order and paid in full for a coffee bundt cake. Ordered on a Monday for the following Sunday. I want told the hours were changed to 11-5 for that Sunday and went at 10am to pick up. Went back at 11:15 to pick up the cake and it wasn't there. The owner was called and was going to have someone bring the cake to the bakery. I received what I thought was going to be full refund for my inconvenience (and could go back at 12:30 to pick up the cake). HOWEVER when I got home, received a call that my cake would actually NOT be available at all. I guess they didn't want to give away the cake. I'm not sure this is a place that can be counted on to provide professional service when you are counting on them.

    People who gave a 1 star review are being way too harsh because they didn’t like a cake donut. Yes, definitely not a yeast donut- but I find them to be excellent! And I don’t know about you but almost everything we buy is frozen- so that doesn’t bother me a bit. I drive an hour to get here and will continue to do so. They just added filled donuts to their menu (but they won’t have them everyday at least at this point) and I can’t wait to get a chance to try them. Love that the donuts are affordable too. Service is always friendly and I’ve yet to have a bad experience. They sell more than donuts too, like cupcakes (so many flavors!!), cookies, coffee cakes, brownies, cinnamon buns, and scones to list a few. You can call ahead to ask what they have because they are a small facility and don’t always have everything stocked. And being 100% gluten free there is no worry!

    Sorry to say but this bakery is the worst gluten free bakery I have ever experienced. After reading such good reviews about their “donuts” we drove over an hour to go there this morning. Everything was completely frozen. The donuts were just a round cake with frosting. There were no other donut characteristics to them. Everything was dry and definitely had been frozen for a while. The employee was actually putting the donuts in the microwave to thaw them. Even warm it was inedible. We were very disappointed and went out of our way on the way home to visit Twist Bakery and Cafe which never disappoints.

    This place is really dedicated to their craft. I'm not only celiac, but I'm also lactose free. They usually have a good selection of dairy free and vegan cupcakes. Their desserts are excellent and they also make cakes and cake versions of popular cupcakes for special events. I highly recommend anyone gluten free or vegan to at least check out their bakery. The family is very well educated about food allergies and intolerance issues, since most of them have to live with it themselves. Very professional.

    I travel for business all over the country. This is the best GF bakery that I have been to. Everything that I have tried is delicious. No funky taste. Not dry and not overly sweet, Cinnamon buns are my must haves. They actually bake everything on site. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.Girl from the back sold me on a caramel delight cupcake, Outstnding.! The safest place to eat. I never get sick. You will be amazed.

    Yes GF, but be aware! I recieved hard, dry, stale cupcakes for a special order! We used to love this bakery until we gave the owner a heads up (not asking for a refund) and received many harrassing, mean replies! She told me to never go to her bakery again. I’ve never seen such a lack of professionalism. I later learned read other reviews of the same so I guess this is how she treats her returning customers. She lost our business and it sounds like many others.

    The best gluten free pastries I’ve had in my life. Every single item is carefully prepared to be as moist and flavorful as possible. You can even find things here you wouldn’t find at a normal bakery such as mango and strawberry cupcakes made with real ingredients! Hands down recommend for all people with celiac and the whole family. I promise you won’t even know you’re eating something without gluten!

    My 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac last week & I decided to surprise her with a visit here today. They've gained a family of customers for life! The baker's husband served us & he was super friendly & knowledgeable. He even took the time to share some info about going GF after learning we're pretty new to it. I cannot say enough good things about the service for sure, but on top of everything, the treats I bought us were AMAZING!!! The caramel cupcake was like a piece of heaven.

    A friend brought me a few goodies from here, so I decided to pay this bakery a visit. She did not tell me that they had cinnamon buns. The man offered to heat one up. I could not believe that this was gluten free. I ordered 4 more to go and 6 cupcakes. I know where I am getting my birthday cake from.

    Hey Batman!! Don't tell Superman, but this is the best Gluten Free Bakery in the Galaxy. I had to ask if the stuff that I taste tested was really gluten free. I can't do this place justice in a review. You have to go and try it out. They give all new customers a taste (your choice) of one of their coffee cakes. Prepare to be amazed.

    I wanted to give my son birthday cupcakes to enjoy/share with ALL his friends while studying for exams. Sans Gluten went above and beyond to help me be a good mom! 2 thumbs up and 5 stars from Alabama. A wide variety of flavors from the expected to the exotic and all were delicious.

    After coming here for over a year I was very disappointed with my last visit. I originally gave this bakery a 5 Star Rating. I’ve visited frequently and never had a problem until last week. I bought three cupcakes and two of them had frosting that was so hard you could crack it with a fork! We didn’t try the third. I called the store and talked to the owner’s husband. He said to come down and he would give a refund or three cupcakes. My husband took the third cupcake back to the store, I told him get the refund or get cinnamon rolls because I didn’t want to chance the cupcakes that day. Well, the owner took the cupcake back and handed my husband ONE cinnamon roll! So that cinnamon roll cost me $15.00!!! We were never given our money back or even offered three cinnamon rolls in replacement. Sadly, this very poor business choice cost them a good customer!!

    Awesome find!! It is small but there is a large variety of goodies to choose from. I was given the history behind how the bakery and the family history of celiac disease that the owner and her 2 daughters have which reassured me that they know what they are doing. Everything is handmade with fresh ingredients, including the flour blend. The buttercream frosting is real butter cream frosting and is delicious. It is amazing that they carry so many types of cupcakes with various types of frosting from American, Swiss, Italian and French buttercreams. I am a foodie and was extremely impressed by the variety. I have tried several of the coffee cakes and have yet to be disappointed. I will most likely order the pumpkin expresso for Thanksgiving. Yum!!

    this place is wonderful, delicious and so nice! one million percent recommend! the eclairs and cinnamon buns are incredible. i live in philadelphia and couldn't remember the name and accidentally went to a&j bakery where i wasted $40 on terrible food that made me sick and tasted awful. so happy that i was in town one more day and was able to find sans gluten again. the owner is very sweet and the food truly tastes and feels good to eat. you can tell they have celiacs in the family and know what they're doing. i really recommend the maple cinnamon bun! the scones are nice too. love this place, just wish i lived closer!

    very small spot. location is busy. but the desserts are on point. traveled a little bit for it but was well eorth it. my girl friend is celiac and she loved the carrot cake and sugar cookies. they weren't dry like how you would expect gluten cookies to be. tasted like a regular sugwr cookie. fairly older gentlemen created the business I believe because his wife and kids have celiacs disease as well so he knows what he's doing!. would go there all the time. wish he had mkre cinnomon rolls!

    This place is perfect. The husband-wife duo who own the shop are clearly very committed to giving everyone who comes in an excellent experience as all of my interactions have been very warm and friendly and they even offer samples of the treats! I got my first slice of GF tiramisu here after being diagnosed for 10+ years without finding it anywhere else, and it was heavenly. This place is a little out of the way, but it is absolutely worth the trip from anywhere!

    my wife recently found out she had a gluten allergy when we finally got the answer to the 6 month prego looking belly after eating gluten! i called Sans and they where professional, well informed, and the owner is a Dr. that treats Celiac and also has it. You can not go wrong here, they let me sample cuocakes and then i purchased my wifes cake for her birthday. it was a hit, all of her friends who are not gluten sensative even said it was one of the most delcious cakes they ever had. My 8 yr old daughter exacts words "wow this is the best cake ever!" so i wouldnt listen to anyones reviews downing this place, i have gone back 4 times in 1 month to get a refill on cupcakes for my wife!
