    I found the reviews here misleading. If you have visited any of the other GF bakeries along the east coast think Happy Tart DC or the big one in NYC this is not that, at all. This is essentially a GF cupcake place that also has sweet bars. There are NO breakfast pastries, NO savory pastries, and I didnt see any cakes on display. You can get a cupcake basically.

    Overpriced, crumbly baked goods. Used to be so much better years ago. For the quality, I just cannot stomach the outrageous prices. I don't mind paying if goods are actually good, but I'd much rather go without rather than spend money here.

    Don't count on this bakery being being open. After driving considerably out of our way, we arrived ten minutes before the posted closing time only to find that they had, for unknown reasons, decided to close early. The door was locked and the folks inside ignored us as they went about their business. Highly disappointing.

    Having CD, a GF bakery is usually enough to make you cry. I nearly cried after spending tons of $$ and getting home to eat terrible baked goods. My husband and I (both GF) didn't even finish them, despite the $$ spent. Such a disappointment

    I begged the family for 3 days to come here, and we finally made the trek out on our last day in Philly. We spent a lot of money to try a lot of different deserts but I was so excited to eat in a dedicated gluten free facility! Some treats were better than others, but for products that are gluten free and vegan (and a whole lot of other allergen free) they were pretty darn good. I would definitely recommend the Samoa and Fauxstess cupcakes. My wife also enjoyed the Chocolate Glazed donut. The Berries and Cream cupcake was also tasty. As with most gluten free products chocolate flavors usually taste the most like "regular" products and the vanilla based cakes tend to be on the dryer side. I wish I had the time, money, and spandex pants to try everything they had to offer. I would recommend this to anyone with severe allergies, or for gluten free folks who want to share deserts with their vegan friends! Secret menu item: Cookie Sandwiches. Pick 2 cookies and your favorite filling and have the staff whip up an extra special goodie (*did not get a chance to try but saw a returning customer order and they looked very excited).

    Be sure to save room for dessert! Sweet Freedom Bakery is the first and only completely gluten-free, vegan, allergy-friendly bakery in the area! Be sure to try the Magic Bars and Cookie Sandwiches.

    Not all of their goodies were delicous, but I will say I really enjoyed the chocolate chip cookie and the fauxstess cupcake!! Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes were ok, but probably wouldn't buy again. The brownie was really good warmed up and with a bit of whipped cream on top. All in all, pretty great for being free of the top 8 allergens.

    Absolutely divine! Smooth delicious frosting and moist cupcakes in creative flavors. Hands down, THE BEST gluten free baked goods I have ever tried! The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly too. I will be back weekly (if not daily) :)

    The best! To make something taste so good with so many restrictions is almost impossible, but, Sweet Freedom has done it! Thank you, thank you, thank you! To have a sweet treat again....amazing!

    After reading other reviews I was quite surprised at the poor ratings. I am GF and dairy-free and it is hard to come across somewhere that is free of allergens! I had a cinnamon roll, a pumpkin muffin and one of their muffin tops and they were all very good (considering they are free of allergens!) If you're someone who is only GF then I would suggest somewhere else, but if you're like me you're used to how foods taste that are free of a few allergens and these tasted like a treat!

    My sister bought me a bunch of cupcakes here for my birthday. They were all pretty awful, but i think it was because they are not just gluten free all allergens are removed, which makes it tough for things to taste good at all.

    I bought cupcakes for my boyfriends birthday so I could have a treat as well. I took one bite and it was awful. Would not go back.

    I'm GF but don't have any other allergies. The food here is full of substitutions that I don't need. If I'm going to eat dessert, it needs to have butter in it! (not coconut oil)

    Amazing! The food changes daily. As I was eating the pizza I had to stop myself because I thought this has to have gluten it's so good. But alas, a delicious safe haven for those of us with Celiac Disease.
