They have gluten free options but told me there is a risk of cross contamination. So not safe for allergies or celiacs

Started coming here for cupcakes after Bloom became unavailable. We have 2 Celiac's in our group, and neither of us have had any issues with their GF cupcakes in the 2 years I've been getting them. I always pre-order the cupcakes, so it's possible that avoids the issue of sharing space with the regular cupcakes.

I love Gigi’s cupcake and I have celiac. I have never had a problem; however, they do not have a dedicated oven, so I would just be aware of that if you are buying GF cupcakes from them.

I have had the gluten free wedding cupcake and the chocolate cupcake. They have these separate from the rest and label everything very well. They do use separate utensils, but baked in same oven. I have been gf for 4 years now and not had any issues at GiGi. Cupcakes are big and very tasty!!

Ordered some cupcakes, ate half of one, and less than an hour later, I was having awful gut pain. Definitely not safe for Celiac.

There were three gluten free cupcake options on the day we visited. Gluten free cupcakes had brown cupcake wrappers (which was a different color than the regular ones) and were stored in a separate area of the display case. The cupcakes were pretty good but not the best I’ve ever had. Still, it was nice to be able to get a cupcake from a bakery for my wheat allergic child.

GiGi’s offered about 10 different flavor combinations of cupcakes. The chocolate with fudge icing was yummy and very rich. The cake was like a brownie. I also tried the wedding cake cupcake. Excellent! I bought a chocolate caramel, but haven’t tried it yet!

Gigi’s makes fresh cupcakes daily, but there are a limited number of gluten friendly cupcakes— so they’re first come-first serve (unless you place an order in advance of course). They have two standard flavors year-round that are gluten friendly (“triple chocolate torte” & “wedding cake” which is a vanilla with buttercream frosting). They typically have a third flavor that is alternated based on the day/season. For example I’ve had a pumpkin caramel flavor during the fall, but presently (winter) they have a Banana Caramel Crunch option that’s gluten friendly. I found this location of the national chain to be just as good as other locations that I’ve had positive experiences with previously.

They will be happy to give you ingredients of cupcakes when needed for allergen concerns! The cupcakes are made with rice flour. They use real sugar, not anything artificial! They do not claim to be celiac friendly. They boxed my cupcakes separately from my husband’s non GF cupcakes, keeping cross contamination from happening. The GF cupcakes are kept in a case separated from the others. They do not offer dairy free options, I am unsure of other allergens, but they happily will answer for you over phone or in store. The cupcakes are very delicious!

My son and I both have issues with gluten, although mine are more severe - I am *very* sensitive - and neither of us got sick. The icing is super sweet, but what a nice treat to have cupcakes that I didn't have to make! I do wish they had more gf options than wedding cake or triple chocolate... Maybe a nice strawberry...

Their GF cupcakes aren't very good. They have a gummy texture, are more sweet than flavorful, and have more frosting than cake. They're also ridiculously overpriced.

They are good, and do have GF cupcakes. However, they are NOT celiac friendly. They are "gluten free" but are incredibly contamimated. If you have a sensitivity, you should be fine. If you actually have celiac, you WILL get sick.

Delicious gluten free cupcakes beautifully decorated!! They usually have at least 2 options, but sometimes there are more. The 2 consistent are a wedding cake ( vanilla cake, vanilla frosting.), and a chocolate. I've also had on occasion, a red velvet which was divine and a cherry ameretto- also divine! Such a treat to have a good quality cupcake!
