While I don’t love when gluten free bakeries also cater to other limited diets at the same time (eg vegan), as this bakery sometimes does, the cakes are amazing and beautiful. Well worth the money - the bonfire or make your own was delicious. We also love that they have gluten free cake pops!! Plus very good muffins and other pastries as well.
The people who work here are very, very friendly and the atmosphere is very cute, but the backed goods just didn’t do it for me. I found the cupcakes where just too sweet and the texture of the bread I got was too spunky. The brownies were very good though.
I’m with Sarah. I really want to like this place. The owner is amazing and her story is incredible. But, the baked goods just aren’t very good. We bought a loaf of their white bread. Very dry and crumbly — nearly choked drying to chew/swallow. We had a cupcake that was extremely gummy with a side of freezer-burnt strawberry ice cream. The only edible baked good was a brownie, which was decent, but no better than the boxed brownies. What they DID do well was coffee. Their iced coffee was pretty fantastic. Maybe time for a re-branding around that?
I've only been here once, so I don't have a full view of what they offer, but their cheesy bread is amazing! I also had their black bean burger on their garlic herb roll, which I admit wasn't my favorite. Still, I can't wait to go back and try more items.
Hands down the best gluten-free bread and pastry in the DMV. The taste and texture are as good as those with gluten. The quiche crust is flaky and delicious. The tomato-cheesy bread is good room temp but amazing after 15 seconds in the microwave. And The challah bread is so good it will make you wanna holla.
I'm very sad to be writing this review because I always want to love totally-GF establishments, but this was a major disappointment. The cupcakes were corn-y and misshapen. The scones were chewy. The campfire brownie was so dry it was inedible. The only thing I had that was really excellent was the cake pop. I wish them the best but I won't be going out of my way to come back.
This bakery has the most delicious ancient grain bread, biscuits, and scones! I enjoyed a delicious vegan soup with bread and herb tea on my first visit. Everything is gluten-free! Generous portions and reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I’m so happy to have discovered them in the heart of Bethesda.
I desperately wanted to love this place, as I have Celiac and need GF food. I walked about 20 minutes to get here and was instantly disheartened when I walked in and saw the look of the bakery items. They were small and flat and didn't look appetizing. Prices were better than many GF places, but with the look of the food, I expected the lower prices. All that said, I got a few pieces of food and found the taste of about 75% to be decent, with a few items being those I would buy again. I would personally go back as it was a safe place for me to eat, but I won't go out of my way again, I'll have to be close by to stop in again.
I ordered a Gluten free birthday cake and was very pleased with the quality and flavor. I am the celiac at the party and did not get sick. All the gluten eaters at the party were very impressed with the cake and could not believe it was GF
My sisters wedding cakes were from here. I sampled the GF almond flavored cake and would have chosen that for myself but some guests had nut allergies. She ended up going with vanilla cake which I would recommend too. Her other cake was also dairy free. I thought the icing was decent (creme de menthe) but the chocolste cake mix was thick and heavy.
