    Everything is pure sugar and way overpriced. Only go when I'm craving something special and hope it's on the discount rack.

    A very safe bet. I've tried cupcakes, cookies and pies from these folks and they are dependable. Well worth the drive.

    I have found their products in some local grocery stores. I have tried many of their baked goods, breads etc. They are just ok. I have had much better GF products from larger brands like Udi's and Canyon Bakehouse. The thing that disappoints me the most is how they treat their employees. The owner Christine talks badly of her employees to other employees. She is flat out mean and is very disrespectful towards her employees. Employees have walked out on her. Also they do freeze everything. Nothing is fresh!!! I have wondered why I have not been able to find them in the local grocery stores like I used to be able to. Now after experiencing it first hand I understand why they are not in many grocery stores anymore. Overpriced and tastes mediocre. Has gone completely downhill.

    I love this bakery! the staff is so friendly and helpful and the treats are wonderful. I buy a ton of their breadcrumbs and pizza dough for my personal chef business and love their rolls, pop tarts, key lime tart and donuts especially!

    Delicious. Kind. Neighborhood business. They're great. Whoopie pies are awesome as are the cup cakes. Great, great! Update: lately gone down hill. Cakes are bit crumbly. Found out that all items are frozen not fresh. Wish they could make more stuff fresh bc most baked goods are so yummy. But it's hit or miss lately.

    Have ordered custom cakes from here plus many more of their wonderful g-free items. They are very knowledgeable about not only gluten free, but also dairy free and soy free items. Many of my non-celiac family members and friends have said their cakes are the best cakes they've had. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic pastries, they even make chocolate croissants and GF cider donuts! They also have vegan GF cupcakes (order in advance), and they are very good.

    Had a slice of cheese pizza, a muffin and a cupcake from here. All of it was amazing but my favorite was definitely the pizza! It may have been my favorite pizza pre and post celiac diagnosis!

    I hope they keep it up, every time I go in it seems more and more empty. Everything I've had has been delicious!

    This has been a go to place since my recent celiac and lactose intolerance diagnoses. Love the snickerdoodles! My family had an amazing carrot cake made for my birthday- I ate the whole thing. Love this place!

    Sometimes it's really nice to have GF things that are just bad for you. The sugary deserts are great (the coffee cake is my favorite with a solid quarter inch of cinnamon sugar on top of it). At the same time, the breads are also really good. the flavor is amazing for all their bread varieties and the texture is pretty darn good as GF goes.

    Its nice to have a gluten free option... but their stuff is WAY too sweet and tends to have a grainy texture. Its just not very good... There are lots of dairy free options though, so if you are gluten free and dairy free and/or vegan and just want something sweet, its nice to have an option.

    The staff were unsure if products had dairy, I spent a lot of money and the only good product was the cinnamon bun, avoid the pies because they are beyond dry, tasteless and have no filling... My local gluten store refuses to sell their product because of all the negative reviews...

    Lots of choices. The "Oreos" were good. Unfortunately my whoopie pie was dry and crumbly.
