I worshipped this place at one point. Sadly it just doesn’t seem the same since the change in ownership. The GF rolls are great and served at some restaurants as well.
Awesome GF good! Some of the treats are too sweat / dense! But amazing bread and awesome people! Update... super disappointed to hear the company has been sold and bought by someone who owns/owned a not safe “gluten free” bakery prior. Really bummed to hear that news after the gluten free expo.
They have a wide variety of food and products that are gluten free. Everything. From cupcakes to breads to bread crumbs. They also offer gluten free dairy free or gluten free egg free products. Products are somewhat pricy but worth it. Have never gotten sick from their products.
This is okay for a sometimes treat. Cute cookies and lots of treats you don’t find often when eating gf. Sadly the prices are astronomical. I left with a couple of sugar cookies for the kids and $25 less in my wallet. I wouldn’t mind, except the ingredients being used are not optimal. Thankfully they label the fact that gmo ingredients are used. I’m not against gmo’s, but what I am against is glyphosate laden food (corn syrups, corn oils, non-organic sugarcane dried with glyphosate) which further attacks the mucosal lining of the gut and causes similar problems to what we are attempting to avoid by eating gluten free in the first place. When I inquired with the woman at the counter she said they use those ingredients to keep prices down.
I’ve tried a few things and want to love it. The DF cinnamon croissant is hard, very dense and the only saving grace is the cinnamon sugar...which would be better on toast with butter and save you 20 grams of fat. The dinner rolls are good. Some local restaurants serve them, but other than that, I think I’ll pass trying anything else.
Great selection. Always new items and seasonal items. Favorites are the sugar cookies, herb bread, cinnamon rolls and cupcakes. All so good!!
You need to plan more than one trip !! So many options ! Educated staff! Lots of bang for the buck!!
I’ve tried a variety of gluten free breads and pastries and SSWW blew me away with their products! Breads are AMAZING. I make sandwiches with the herb crusted white bread! Whoopie pies are SO good and don’t forget about the chocolate croissants!
Something Sweet Without Wheat makes the hands-down, most delicious GF products in the area! I worked with SSWW for three years in both their retail and factory settings, and can't say enough good things about this business. The staff genuinely cares about offering only the highest quality products to their customers. The care and planning which goes into creating new recipes is something truly special. Much of this passion stems from the owner, Christine, as she herself is afflicted with severe intolerances. I will continue to recommend these products to anyone who is looking for delicious, allergy friendly options.
This bakery is fantastic. Note that it is NOT a cafe- there’s nowhere to eat. But they have a variety of frozen items ready to go and some fresh items ready to eat. The cinnamon rolls are to die for and the cider donuts didn’t even taste GF (but are!) such an exciting find! They have cupcakes, cookies, breads, etc.
I tried a variety of cakes, cookies, muffins and breads and I’ve yet to be impressed by any of it. All of it lacked flavor. I’ve had better in the frozen section at grocery stores.
Before I was an employee at their Woburn location I enjoyed their food. They tell you that the food is fresh, however, it is NOT! Everything is frozen (even the stuff you see when you enter the store that they tell you are fresh) They do not inventory the freezer well and they treat their employees absolutely terrible, like slaves. I absolutely hate leaving a review like this but everyone should be aware.
Bread is pretty yummy. Especially if you're looking for something different- they're cinnamon sugar bread is awesome. I will eat the whole loaf in a day if no one stops me. Some pastries are okay, some get crumbly if they freeze them. Whoopie pies and cinnamon rolls are my fav. Sub rolls are pretty good too!
Everything is yummy! Bread a little on the dense side, however still better the frozen isle at store. Breadcrumbs and whoopie pies are my favorites!
Amazing cupcakes, even my family members who are not GF thought their variety, taste and texture were all great. Try the Boston Cream or Chocolate Raspberry cupcakes, those were my favorite.
There bread and treats are in Whole Foods and I first saw there cookies at the TD Garden in the Club section . There bakery in Woburn has fresh bread croutons cakes cookies . Tried a lot of GF bread and there's is the best tasting
By far the best gluten free bread (oatmeal) around, actually has a "Normal " bread texture! Delicious baked goods! Well worth the money for a decent product!
Extremely over priced. Ordered a cake from here and was not very impressed with how much I paid and how it came out.
Cannot say enough good things about this place! Not only can I eat GF without the fear of getting sick, but they have dairy-free options as well. I had their tea-bread (a cinnamon type cake which was heavenly!) their woopie pies and a few other baked goods which all tasted too good to be true! They also make custom cakes, have a phenomenal staff and I would highly recommend them! (Their dinner rolls are now served at Legal Seafoods!!)
Amazing! I loved the cookies and apple cider donuts. I can't wait to eat the cupcakes and whoopie pies, but I've managed to ration my supply because it isn't near me. Absolutely recommend. Some of the best gf treats I've had.
Delicious!! Amazing. I'm never disappointed!
I used their GF bread cubes for Thanksgiving stuffing. Also enjoyed their flavored GF olive bread. Nice to have GF fresh bread vs frozen.
One word......... YUM

Love this place. Cookies, cupcakes, bread, pita chips! I also get my birthday cakes here. Not only gluten free but nut free. Most things are dairy free and I believe cakes can be egg free on request
So nice to walk into somewhere where everything looks so good and you can eat all of it. Bought a load of herb bread and some cupcakes. Sampled a chocolate chip cookie that tasted like a chocolate chip cookie!
Excellent service, get my birthday cakes here.
Super friendly staff. They had great recommendations for our first visit. All their products can be frozen so it is a great option to stock up and have at home as needed. The pastries were great. Also the frozen pizza was a good option for a quick dinner. So I'm sure we will make the trek from Boston again.
Wonderful service and foods. Call and ask when it will be fresh and still warm, best time to go DAIRY FREE TOO
My favorite gluten free place! Amazing breads, cakes, and treats! Tons of dairy free and amazing staff
