I actually cried a little when I walked in here for the first time and they reassured me that everything in the place is gluten free. Every single item I’ve tried so far has been good, if not great!

The first time I bought a jelly donut I walked out and ate it in my car, then immediately walked back in and bought another one for later.

This is my favourite gluten free bread place by far. They even have baguettes!

The only thing to really keep in mind is they have a slightly different offering depending on the day of the week, so it can be good to look on their website in advance and plan accordingly.

Now if only their closed days were not my only days off… I’d be there every week.

Wow - I have been looking for a replacement for Krispy Kreme donuts for 16 years - a chewy, glazed gluten free donut. And they have them!! Chewy delicious amazing. Note they make certain items only certain days so good to check their online ordering system and consider ordering ahead. Everything we got was amazing: sweet Danish, savory Danish, glazed donut, cinnamon sugar donut, sausage roll, pizza bun… yum.

Delicious baked goods here! I haven't had a yeast donut in YEARS and their one tasted exactly how I remember them. Fluffy, light, tasty. I also like their cinnamon bun and their pizza buns. Banana bread was just okay.

Love this spot, recommend going early if you can when they have the most variety available because they definitely sell out by days end. Lots of vegan options, and a rotating daily menu of doughnut, muffin, pizza, etc. flavours. It’s fully gf and everything I’ve had from here is amazing!

I'm a celiac with lactose intolerance and an egg allergy, so any bakery that can feed me is a must-try on vacations. I got gf vegan doughnuts (double chocolate sprinkle that day), a nanaimo bar, and potato rolls. I wish I'd tried 10 more things, as everything was really fantastic. The potato bread, in particular, was magical. I can't compare the nanaimo bar to a "normal" one, as this is the first I've ever had, but the cashew-based vegan custard was really really really good.

Delicious food and 100% gluten free! They also sell bread mixes and pancake mixes as well along as a lot of other things. This is a celiac’s dream! One thing to note however is that it is a good idea to come earlier in the day, as they do sell out.

Stopped by to get a pastry. This place was great. They had prepared and frozen food, plus items you can take home to make cookies or bread. I am gluten, dairy and nut free, they had several options. No negative after effects. They appear to be dedicated gluten free. Vegan options were available as well.

My teenager was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. It was an amazing experience to find this dedicated GF bakery/store and we enjoyed some of their delicious goodies: breakfast sandwich, pizza and a taster of their sourdough bread. We stocked up on items from their freezer to enjoy later. There is so much to choose from (sweets and savory) including spices, sauces, jams etc. The staff were very friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend you try the Gluten Free Epicurean. The pizza is really great!

Incredible. We were totally blown away by the variety and taste. We got the sandwich of the day and are still talking about it (Korean BBQ chicken). Also tried: pesto grilled cheese, glazed donut, almond croissant, and chocolate croissant. Everything was so delicious. No risk of cross contamination and everyone is really friendly too. A must visit.

Great little spot. 100% gluten free. Lots of vegan options as well. Good selection of local items carried (loved the local dumplings and progies) The donuts were AMAZING. 100% recommend. The grilled sandwiches were also amazing.

The croissants however were such a disappointment. I couldn't even finish them. Dense and little to no taste at all. Like a heavy scone or something. Don't waste your money on it.

This is a cafe-like experience for people who miss savouries and sweets. They have great baked goods, like pizza, sandwiches, cookies, tarts... and offer frozen packages of Cinnabon’s and pot pies for Sunday and Monday snacking at home. Their drinks are pretty hippie - kombuchas, small brew pop, etc. There is a coffee shop next door, but they are expensive!
