Yummy GF pumpkin bread! There were a couple of other GF breads. However, they’re not made in an exclusively GF kitchen so I wouldn’t be confident about no cross contamination.

A few GF options! Lemon cake and a few muffins kept separate from everything else. Also, a few prepackaged GF snacks by the register.

Their signs say that things are made in a non exclusive kitchen, but they're gluten free breads have never given me a problem. They also have very good drinks, especially the spicy Chi latte. yyuuuummmm!!

Just got a coffee here. Hoped for a muffin or something, but although the GF items are under glass and separate, they are not packaged, and a sign says that GF items are not produced in a GF-certified kitchen. I passed.

Love this place. Had the GF zucchini bread, no reaction, which was pretty good (kept under glass). It was made there, so cross contamination is very possible. Perhaps I got lucky. They also have instant Red Mill GF oatmeal, lemon cake and GF cookies. Nice vibe.

Tea, lemon cake and zucchini bread all gluten free along with some wrapped cookies. Add a quite location to read and purchase a good book. For me nothing could be better. The gluten free items are home cooked by the owner, excepted the wrapped cookies.
