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.

Only two gluten free options. A red velvet cupcake for chocolate chip cookie. Both are good but a bit pricey for what you get.

I enjoyed the birthday FREEBIE gf red velvet cupcake (sign up for bday club online and bday email for free cupcake). The clerk got it from the back so it wasn't on the shelf with the gluten cupcakes. Pretty great texture, but I prefer the black velvet from Red Velvet Cupcakery in D.C.

They have a gluten free menu but it is not safe for people with Celiac or gluten Allergy. They just use gluten free products but as they told me at the phone with the customer service they don't have a separate room or separate utensils. This so misleading.

Delicious cupcake. Red Velvet and Lemon Blueberry were divine. I was absolutely exposed to gluten. Got very sick after eating both.

3 options. Red velvet cupcake, lemon blueberry cupcake or chocolate chip cookie. The lemon blueberry cupcake had great flavor. The frosting was super thick and sweet.
