All gluten free but horrible taste, undercooked and bland, they put a ton of frostings on products to try to give it taste but it doesn’t work well.

Maybe I came on a bad day or ordered the wrong thing...but every sweet that we bought was under-baked and turned to goo in your mouth 😖 We got the lemon blueberry bar, remedy bar (brownie between 2 cookies), and the banana bread. Wish I could give a better review!

This place isn’t close to home for me, so when I am in the area I try to pop in. They are dedicated gluten free and are pretty darn good. If you are a celiac or have a severe allergy, go and show them some love. You won’t be disappointed.

Great for avoiding multiple allergens and love that it's a dedicated facility for so much, even though I only need gluten-free. Got a few cupcakes and they were all rather squishy, but overall pretty good.

We ordered our allergen-friendly wedding cake (a 6" round cake for us and a large sheet cake for our guests) and could not have been happier. From the cake tasting to the ordering of the cake to the actual taste of the cake, everything was perfect. So many of our guests remarked how delicious the cake was. We also love their other treats--seriously, the strawberry cupcakes are ridiculously good--and stop by any time we are in the area. We LOVE Sensitive Sweets!

So sad to give this place a bad review. Is this bakery celiac safe?? YES!!!! So what’s the problem?? Um everything lacks flavor or is straight up gross. It’s really disappointing especially after trying out other 100% gluten free bakeries that are so good you can’t even tell it’s gluten free. I would recommend ordering on-line from another bakery rather than coming here.

I went here because it was a sponsored ad that popped up on here, but I’m glad I did! While the food wasn’t absolutely amazing, it still tasted really good and I tried about 3 different baked goods. I appreciate an allergen free bakery!!

That feeling when you walk in and you can eat anything you see 😬. Haven’t been disappointed by any of my choices either. Love the rolls and the doughnuts. If you like banana even better. Better than my go to bakery in San Diego.

They list all their ingredients, which make it super easy for those of us with multiple allergies. They had a special chocolate raspberry cupcake for the holiday and it was amazing. The strawberry lemonade was good, but not to die for. The guy at the register went above and beyond to help me figure out things I could eat. Overall, an easy and good place to get sweets.

Totally celiac friendly... but It’s 2018 stop making GF stuff that tastes like the cardboard box it came out of. ..Been trying this place randomly for years and it keeps getting worse?? I bake wayyyyyy better and tastier than this place. I actually threw out their holiday platter after trying a bite of each. Just don’t bother here. 🤢🤢

We love this place! We always come here when we are in town. I wish we had one closer to us honestly. My kids are just obsessed with the donuts and cookies. I will admit the pumpkin cupcakes are completely irresistible! Every time I cannot eat just one ;) my hubby who is extremely "picky" he is addicted to the lemon bars. Where I love the lemon cupcakes. The frosting is a tad sugary which I am not totally in love with however they do have no frosted cupcakes for this solution. The sugar cookies usually have some that are frosted all adorable with character faces and holidays. My kids just love these! I would give it more stars if I could!

Sensitive sweets, thank you for making such a wonderful place so everyone can have a delicious treat! You make our vacations much sweeter!! Thanks!!

I am amazed at the high ratings this establishment has gotten. I'd give it an even lower score, but my son liked a couple of their products, and they're a reliable source of safe baked goods in a pinch. However, most of the products I've tried have been very bland and/or odd tasting. Their cupcakes have a weird, chewy texture. I agree with other posters that unless you're 'allergic to everything,' I wouldn't recommend this place. There are much tastier options for gluten (and dairy)-free.

Excellent baked goods. If you get lucky and they have sundried tomato rolls get them and you can freeze for later...delicious. Truffles are great and my son loves their cake push pops. I freeze them and we always have cake for him if a party unexpectedly comes up. All the kids are jealous because the look (and are) so good. Downside is it's quite pricey, but we are happy to have this completely allergy-free bakery at all!

The desserts that we got here were good for being GF, DF, NF, EF, CF, and SF. That being said, if you aren't allergic to everything, there are better options. The cookie dough truffle was very good, but that is the only good item that I tasted. The dough used in the pastries is really bland, and the only flavor of any kind comes from the icing. I wouldn't recommend this bakery unless you have tons of allergies or dietary restrictions. Or unless you want a cookie dough truffle.

Sensitive Sweets is located in Fountain Valley, California, not too far from Disneyland. I actually can’t go to Disneyland anymore without stopping there to pick up some sweets first. I have a major sweet tooth and Sensitive Sweets has several gluten free and vegan options. I am also grateful to Melanie Hohman for offering shipping on Sensitive Sweets website online for many of their yummy items.

The $10 loaf of bread was inedible. After waiting 30 minutes for service I was told they need a 24 in advance order for the groupon. Tried "donut holes" which are mini cupcakes... Ok tasting... but WAY Overpriced.
