Violette has some of the best gluten free baked goods I've had anywhere. Violette actually has some of the best baked goods I've had back when I ate gluten. My gluten-eating husband would choose the chocolate chip cookies over most others. They're great, but my personal obsession is the brioche. Also the peanut butter cookies with chocolate. Also the apple fritters. And the bagels. And the sourdough or oat breads. Seriously, just go to Violette.
Had a variety of cupcakes and cookies from here. First of all - no cross contamination and I feel confident to eat from there again. But also the quality is fantastic, their cream to cake ratios are spot on, and the choice is brilliant for every taste.
Not the best gf bakery I've ever been to, but definitely the best option in Boston/Cambridge. I went early on a Saturday afternoon and it was busy! It's a small space (no seating) and they seem to run out of food quickly, so I would recommend ordering ahead on their website. Personally, I think their pastries are better than their savory food.
I’ve tried the majority of their baked goods, and some of them are FANTASTIC! Highly recommend the cakeron, flourless chocolate cake, the lemon squares, angel food cake, the APPLE FRITTER (!!!!), and bars (billionaire bars, turtle bars). The cupcakes are also good, but the frosting isn’t my favorite. Celiac safe and a tasty (if a bit pricey) treat!
The berry scone was delicious, very soft, moist, and cakey. The mixed berry bar was also great as was the peach cupcake. Vanilla/yellow cake is usually not good gf but they nailed it! Wasn’t the biggest fan of the lemon berry shaker pie but it was still alright. Prices are as expected. Wanted to try an empanada but I had a 6 hour drive so sadly couldn’t.
Nice to have a dedicated GF place in the area, no doubt. No chances of getting sick here which is huge. However, I'm not really a fan of their baked goods, and they're overpriced. The only thing I've liked is the empanadas. However, other Celiac family members love it. So it's certainly worth a try!
My favorite gf bakery in the area for sure! They serve savory items which is not always common in gf bakeries! Their brioche is amazing and cupcakes are delicious! They have several vegan items as well! Some of their items contain oats so, if you are sensitive to them- check with the staff and they will inform you! Always friendly and great service!
This bakery is absolutely amazing. DEDICATED GLUTEN FREE FACILITY! (Yay!!!!) Hands down the best GF baked goods I've ever had - by FAR my favorite GF place. Everything is so delicious and I've never gotten sick from eating anything here. They make the best GF bread I've ever had, quiches, ham and cheese pastries, several different pies, cakes, cookies, pastries, etc. It's just like a normal bakery (everything is yummy) but it's a completely dedicated facility. I cannot say enough good things about this place. So good that I'm almost positive that the one review here that isn't five stars has to be a mistake. I have very high GF standards, and I've never gotten anything here I didn't love. The owner is very sweet and explained she started the bakery because she was tired of mediocre GF foods when it's completely possible to make delicious stuff. My non-GF relatives raved about how good everything was. I have a hard time sharing whenever I get anything from here. If you're trying to decide between going here and literally anywhere else for breakfast, lunch, or anything in between, come here. You definitely won't regret it.
So many choices that are dairy free! The ice cream sandwiches were to die for. Pizza was very good and we bought lots of sweets and so far they’re all very good. Highly recommend! We went back a second time on our trip for more pizza, a calzone and a bag full of cookies and other goodies. Everything we ate tasted amazing! You won’t be disappointed.
This is a dedicated gluten free facility with dairy free options as well. They have everything from pies (whole or by the slice), quiche (whole or by the slice), cakes, cupcakes, cookies, scones, you name it! I informed them of my honey allergy, and the ladies behind the counter quickly listed off three items that they use honey in, and assured me that everything else was safe. I indulged in their apple cobbler and a pumpkin cupcake and took them outside to enjoy in the beautiful autumn weather. While nothing will ever beat my grandmother's apple pie with its gluten-y crust, this cobbler was a wonderful combination of sweet and tart, and the crust held together well. The pumpkin cupcake was light and fluffy and perfectly sweet. I pass this bakery on my commute, and can see many, many more visits in the future!
