Went to the store in Downtown LA (7th & Fig shopping center). They had GF red velvet and blueberry lemon as well as a chocolate chip cookie. They were in the same case as the gluten but on the top shelf. Sadly the Vegan cupcake was just next to the GF ones, so high chance of cross-contamination. I do not have celiac (my kids do) and I am GF for health reasons. I just ate the red velvet cake and it is very delicious, except for the tooth-breaking "G" on top, which was very, very crunchy and not good. It has not been ingested long enough to see if I have had contact w/ gluten, but I am writing a review because it is delicious and it was so exciting to see GF in the store! One star off because the server used the same glove for my cupcakes as for my friend's gluten one, and because they're in the same case next to gluten. I would not buy my kids cupcakes at this store, too risky.
I went in and asked about the process they used to make their Gluten free products. The gentleman brought out an allergy book of all ingredients and could not guarantee me that no cross contamination takes place which made sense to me after I looked in the case where they kept the baked goods. The GF baked goods are kept in the same case as the non-GF. I did not dare to try it. For those without Celiac it looked and had great choices.
3 options: GF red velvet cake, GF flourless chocolate cupcake, and chocolate chip cookie. We tried the red velvet and it was moist and delicious. When we ordered it, they changed gloves, got a fresh one from the back, and boxed it separately.
Was leery since not a dedicated kitchen but found it celiac safe. Separate cooking bowls pans etc. and they keep GF goods in the back separate from gluten products. Server happy to change gloves before selecting our FABULOUS red velvet cupcake. Only other option was a choc chip cookie. Cupcake has an edible "G" on the top indicating it's GF. Will go again!
Here to leave yet another review about how amazing their gf red velvet cupcakes are!! I might even say it was the best cupcake I have ever had, even from before I was gluten free! I also had one of their gf chocolate chip cookies which was also delicious! Only minor bad thing I could say is that I went to their cupcake ATM after they were closed and the ATM did not offer the gf cupcake :(
Really good! They have a gluten free cake and cookie but also I emailed ahead and they gave me a list of all their gluten free Ice cream flavours: butter pecan, chocolate chip, coconut fudge almond, coffee, coffee fudge almond, dark chocolate, mint chip, salty caramel, strawberry, vanilla bean, mango sorbet, strawberry sorbet. And the best part is their cupcake ATM! Deffo worth a visit
The GF red velvet cupcake was so good! And they were offering a limited run of a GF chocolate chip cookie, it was amazing! It was thick and soft and so good. I'm hoping customer demand will keep them offering that cookie. Side note: they keep the GF cookies packaged separately in the back which was really nice to see.
I loved Sprinkles before I knew I have celiac. Went for the first time post diagnosis and while they make the cupcakes in a shared kitchen, they do prepare the GF ones in a different part of the kitchen, store them on the top shelf of the display, and assured me they change gloves. Not many options, but there were two today! Haven’t tried it yet, but feeling optimistic. Update: did not get sick last time, but have since not felt comfortable getting them again due to being right next to the vegan cupcakes and being informed they are not prepared separately from glutinous cupcakes.
not celiac safe. everything is made on shared equipment
Cupcakes and cookies are delicious. I eat at the BHills location all the time and have never been sick. It’s a must to let them know you have allergy to gluten. I have Celiac so I tell them but, they know it as gluten allergy. Make sure they change their gloves and get yours from the back to avoid cross contamination! I eat these too often and I never get sick
So moist & yummy! Have had them several times and never had an issue
Delicious 😍 they need the gf cupcakes in the same case as the regular but ive never had an issue... They only have red velvet and lemon blueberry but the red velvet is amazing 😍😍
The cupcakes are delicious but as noted by others there are few choices. If you have multiple food intolerance, there are no options. Staff did not seem knowledgeable or understanding that ingredient could be important past gluten.
Best gluten free lemon blueberry cupcake on earth.
They are not celiac safe. They use the same equipment as non gluten free and it’s all stored in the same place. If you have a gluten allergy or Celiac I would not go there
Not actually fully GF, cross contamination
Best GF red velvet cupcake I have ever had! It was so moist and the cream cheese frosting was amazing. They cannot guarantee there isn’t any cross contamination but assured me they are made in their own trays and space. Best part is I didn’t get sick. 😁
They have a small printed sign that their kitchen that they make GF cupcakes in are not gluten free. While the GF cupcakes are not touching other cupcakes, they are still stored adjacent in the same space and it’s very possible small crumbs travel in the space. Cupcakes themselves are very very delicious. I am non-celiac, with wheat allergy (+more), and I had a mild reaction from eating their cupcakes, which may or may not be due to wheat.
Was excited to go here based on the reviews but got sick worse than I have in recent memory afterwards. All I can think is that they mislabeled the cupcake or there was some serious cross contamination. Probably not a usual event based on the reviews but celiacs be wary.
AMAZING!!!!! The absolute best gluten free cupcake I have ever tasted. They have two flavors, red velvet and blueberry. I have only tried red velvet and it is soooooooo good! I am celiac and did not get sick so I say it is celiac friendly. They also have the cutest G sprinkles for the gluten free cupcakes.
I have celiac disease and even the slightest cross contamination can leave me in an abundance of pain for weeks. I walk into the small cupcake shop and asked for any gluten free options available. The woman quickly stated "no we have no gluten free cupcakes". Astounded, I looked at my mom and sister confused because I found this place under this gluten free app (which I always use !). So I just told my sister to get any cupcake she wanted and I'll get something sweet somewhere else. The entire time this lady is watching me conversate amoungst my sister and hearing how dissapointed I was. My mother then asked again if there was anything gluten free, in which the lady finally said "yes there is in the back" as her employees began to fill the front desk from the back of the bakery. As we all looked at each other confused I asked for 1 gluten free cupcake as she puts 1 glove on grunting. I was completely weirded out, as I knew this was my worst nightmare to ever happen publicly. I was being discrimated against. She seemed to not want to serve me at all and did not inform me of the ways she would carefull prepare my cupcake away from the others, she also didn't inform me if there were any other flavors or even if how they were made! Either way, even if she did not want to serve me, the fact that she could not provide such valuable information to a person with celiac disease and seeing just the "normal gluten cupcakes displayed" gave me a sickening feeling of being completely terrified that somehow/someway I am going to get sick.if you have celiac, I would not recommend since these regular/gluten free cupcake are made fresh DAILY. With the chances of flour flying around everywhere and not having a completely dedicated area for us Celiac's.
I've heard great things about this bakery so I decided to check it because I read they have gluten free, well....they have A gluten free cupcake which is red velvet. The cupcake itself wasn't bad at all, the lack of selection won't bring me back. The girl who grabbed the cupcakes (I ordered a non gluten free as well) touch the non gluten free first before going in the back (she put on a glove) and touch the door with her glove and grabbing the other. I'd never do that regardless of what I was grabbing, to me it's more common sense and sanitary. I'd recommend if you aren't gluten free, but would check elsewhere if you don't want red velvet.
Not for celiacs. Too bad. If you're a fad dieter, enjoy yourself.
They have GF red velvet and chocolate chips cookie. Only tasted the red velvet cupcake, but I went back and bought four more! So this was gooooood!
Only one choice in a non-dedicated facility and expensive - that is all true. But it's worth it! And seriously, who makes red velvet cupcakes without dye?? Soy is also a common ingredient in cupcakes. *rolls eyes at previous reviewer*
The cookie and the red velvet cupcake was delicious. But beware if you have celiac. Cross contamination. I got so sick within 30 min my stomach was the size of a balloon I barely made it thru the movies. When I got home, my stomach was rumbling and I was vomiting. I know it was the baked good because I specifically went to the grove for their gluten free items and did not eat anything else. I was terribly sick.
