Their gf cupcakes aren’t made on site but they are from a bakery that is certified GF so i felt so safe eating one - and they’re even dairy free! For me I need both so it’s always so hard to find something I can enjoy out. So my day was made. When the cashier saw how elated I was, she through in an extra brownie free of charge - it was the sweetest.
They only sell packaged gf items from Sweet Without Wheat. And on a Saturday morning only had a package of cup cakes and a package of choco chip cookies. Not really a gf resource,
I do like Sweet and have always been a fan of their GF cupcakes. There aren’t many places in this area to have dessert so a stop in here is always a treat! Their cupcakes are baked and shipped in from a celiac specific bakery called Something Sweet without Wheat. I like knowing that they are offering something safe for celiacs...but I wish they would sell the cupcakes individually or at least experiment with some in house options. It seems unfair that I have to spend almost $10 for two cupcakes when I only want one and the expiration is usually that day or the next.
I stopped here to pick up a GF treat before getting on a train and was extremely disappointed. I opted for the GF cupcakes that defiantly not baked in house and if they were it was from weeks ago. took one bite and in the garbage they both went. I would avoid this place and stop at Starbucks to get a rice crispy treat ( those are better) .
Disappointed. I went there specifically to get myself a GF treat as my family had just enjoyed some beautiful French pastry at Paul around the corner. I bought the vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting. They were in a plastic shell package and do not appear to have been baked by Sweet. $9.95 for 2 cupcakes so my expectations were high. They were so stiff as to be inedible. I wasn't even being picky- I would have eaten them probably if they had been slightly stale. But they were hard as rocks to the point that I probably could not have gotten a tooth in. I returned them. I think perhaps they just weren't paying attention to the freshness of the GF products they are selling because they don't make them and it's not their primary focus. But don't bother advertising this like you are doing celiacs any favors if THAT is what you are selling.
We had two GF cupcakes that were moist and tasty in the heart of Boston along the Freedom Trail. Yeah!!!
Yummy gluten (and egg and nut) free cupcakes separately packaged. 2 for $10. Coffee and lemonade also delicious. Will be going back there!
I quickly visited the shop to see their gluten free offerings. I find that a lot of bakeries make half-hearted efforts to have gluten free options. But Sweet was not one of those bakeries b/c their gluten free offerings featured special and unique pairings to truly give GF patrons a proper taste of what the bakery has to offer. I purchased the Lime Mango cupcakes to-go and ate one the following morning. The cupcake was moist, tasty, and reflected the flavors indicated. The lime was the gentle but prominent note and the mango was more subtle (in the filling?). The frosting was good, too (3/5 stars, as it good, it wasn't memorable). The flavors were pleasant and did not taste artificial (like lime and mango can sometimes be, if not done correctly). Would I return? Yes. In fact, I am excited to try the other GF pastries!
