    Been here twice for different things - 1st time was a pulled pork sandwich and the 2nd time was for a BLAT - both were out of this world good! Everyone here is cheerful and helpful too!

    This place is truly amazing. They were first off very patient and nice while I contemplated my purchasers. Everything is gluten free and there is an incredible array of different baked goods. From pastries to savory snacks this place covers vegan, dairy free, sugar free and vegetarian options. I had a delicious quiche and a vegan cinnamon roll that was so good I'm still in shock. I also got vegan chocolate ice cream in a waffle cone. You can also buy a lot of their mixes and prepped frozen goods to bake at home! I'm having cinnamon rolls for breakfast 😏

    If I could give this a 10-star rating I would!! So many options, so incredibly good! And, it's all gluten free! Can't ask for much more in our world.

    This place was such a great find! My group ordered the banana bread, lemon bar, dairy free meat pizza, peanut cookie and chocolate blueberry muffin. All were excellent. Our favorites were the peanut cookie and banana bread.

    If you've got a sweet tooth for indulgent treats, head on over to the Gluten-Free Epicurean. The bakery features a variety of organic gluten-free and vegan baked goods including cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pastries and donuts. Our team licked our fingers and lips as we enjoyed freshly baked cinnamon buns and apple fritters with a cup of tea. The bakery has adorable décor and is the perfect place to enjoy a morning or afternoon treat. Everything on site is gluten-free and all baked goods are also made free of oats and soy.

    My favorite Vancouver gluten free bakery. She makes the most unique savory items. The Vegetable Rolls are fantastic (pastry filled with mixed sautéed vegetables). The Potato and Leek Knich (pastry around potato-leek mixture) is amazing. Vegan options also, such as Daiya Cheese Buns. Sweet items are also excellent, especially the Apple Fritters.

    Always delicious! The organic chicken pot pie is especially yummy, as are all the desserts.

    Much more ambitious than Panne Rizo in Kitsilano and carries it off well. A great mix of items and even mixes to take home. The cinnamon bun was very good in taste but just a bit dry. The Nanaimo bar was wonderful. All gluten free and the owners have been for 10+ years. They have some vegan and some nut free items.

    I don't typically like doughnuts, but the maple bacon fritter is incredible!

    Some of the best GF Baked goods I've ever eaten!! Their Cinnamon Buns (Rolls) are the best. Buy them already baked if possible. The frozen take-and-bake option didn't work out as well. Apple Fritters are great. As is the Organic Chicken Pot Pie in their freezer. Slice of Pizza was good and I was delighted to know they have a dairy free option. Sausage Rolls were good too. Yes, I tried a lot of their product!
