    Honestly the best celiac friendly restaurant and Backery I've ever been to. I come here from DC at least once a week! Would love above the place if I could!

    Highly recommend this dedicated bakery with indoor and outdoor seating. The staff was patient as my large family ordered. I Our family favorites include the chocolate chip cookie, cupcake pop, spinach puffed pastry, and pecan tart. Everything was fresh and delicious on a Sunday early afternoon. Overall, the best gluten free bakery.

    Most of the desserts are delicious, some are okay (Nutella pastry unfortunately) but still good. The ham and cheese crepe is absolutely out of this world. Their best item imo. Great gluten free and Celiac-safe business in the DMV!

    I am so grateful for this wonderful space! It is charming, everything is delicious, and it is so refreshing to go somewhere and not have to ask questions or special order. We are very fond of the savory crepes and the lentil and kale soup. We are also having our wedding cake and desserts made here, and the price surprised us - amazing value for beautiful work and delicious treats.

    They run out of certain pastries quickly just fyi. I try to go early morning to pick out what I want like their Spinach Leek Turnovers and French Apple Tarts. You can call ahead to see if they ran out of a specific pastry. I don't recommend eating their fondant covered cookies because they could be old... I never ordered a crepe, but will do so in the future. I usually order desserts to go but never had any issues with customer service. Their desserts are delicious, personally I love (Tiramisu, Opera, Red Velvet Cupcakes, Spinach & Leek Turnover, Macaroons, Apple Pies, Apple Tarts, Cheesecake, Fruit Tarts) Their turnovers taste like are not gluten free, wish I knew their recipe. They use nuts in some of their pastries, so always ask. There are parking garages with free parking.

    The staff here are great, and the food is very good. Ask about xanthan if you get gummy tummy. Avoid the sauces at the table.as they have vinegars that aren't really GF. Ask to make sure any salad dressings don't have while vinegar. I didn't ask about what brand of flours they use and if they are milled in a dedicated facility, so I can't 100% call this shop Celiac Friendly.

    I typically don't bother writing poor reviews of places ,especially small businesses, but today's experience had me compelled to share my experience. After waiting in line (I was next) for a couple to complete their order with a few people assisting (searching for items missing etc), I was next in line to order what was in the display case (set out, looked available to order as I thought). I was waiting long enough that several people behind me left. The couple was done, the person assisting walked off and I continued to wait very patiently (even with a friendly smile). Another person came out and began to empty items in the display case and bring them in the back, eliminating one item I was going to order. When I ordered, I got a half shrug by both the person assisting as well as the owner that the item was going out for another order. Why was it displayed if it was promised to someone else? I was told it wasn't mine to order (but if someone has helped me obviously it would have been mine....). It wasn't even a genuine I am sorry, let us compensate you, or anything. Last year I even ordered my wedding cake from this bakery and I am a familiar face as I've been supporting this business for the past 4 years in Del Ray and Falls Church. To me, It feels they got too big too fast and have forgotten about the customers who have gotten them there. Next time offer something up like a discount, free item when you burn a customer. That is what good business owners do, especially in small communities like Falls Church City.

    Amazing! I ate here once & said " this is what happens when a master pastry chef gets Celiac Disease." I had no idea at the time that's exactly what happened. The owner spent 20 yrs perfecting GF pastries, and she well succeeded. I'm a try GF snob, & I was truly impressed. The prices are really good for the DC area. The shop is adorable & the employees helpful & friendly. I went in this a.m. & bought an entire bag of goodies to take on the plane back to Alaska w/ me! Great job guys!!! Way to raise the bar!

    I was so excited to try this bakery and it was definitely worth the trip. I got three cupcakes: triple lemon, carrot cake and almond raspberry. They were amazing!!!! I also got some chocolate chip cookies, which were also wonderful. The english muffin rolls were pretty good too.
