Unique lunch experience!

We split the sweet dreams sandwich and the garden girl pizza. Both were delicious, but the sandwich was slightly better because the waffle stayed crispy. I highly recommend trying both!

Featuring a gluten free menu, The Bald Strawberry is a must visit for everyone, not just those on a gluten free diet. The sandwiches and pizzas are all served on waffles, which confuses some initially, but don't let it. They are crisp enough on the outside to not get soggy, yet soft inside. Pretty much perfect. The menu is varied,... More

The sandwiches are served on Gluten-free waffles. They stay surprisingly crispy. Pizza was a little bit pricey for the serving, but if you need gluten-free, a good alternative. We would return and try some different menu items. Cupcakes looked great!

Lunch, on waffles?! AMAZING! Who would think! We got a sandwich and pizza (on waffles!) They were so flavorful! It was a new twist on the original lunch food we are use to (and for a better/great price too!). Eating here made me feel healthier too, everything is gluten free, but you couldn't tell! I got the cool Joe and... More

I purchased salads and desserts here. The turkey cranberry salad was excellent, but you really go here for the waffle dishes and their macarons. There are many delicious flavors of macarons to choose from!

Thank you for visiting us and we're so glad you enjoyed it all! We do, however, no longer have the selection of macarons we previously had when visited back in May. Just ensuring we don't let anyone down that would come in looking for them. And thanks again! More

The restaurant decor is humble but welcoming, the service was excellent, but the food was the star my sandwich was the best gluten free sandwich I have probably ever had and was more than I could eat in one sitting. We took... More

We saw this restaurant on tripadvisor. We tried it and found it to be wonderful. Decor is below average. I didn't go there for the ambiance, I went there to eat gluten free. The food was really good. Their whole promotion of gluten free revolves around their waffle. They use it for sandwiches and pizza. They have other non-waffle items... More

This was our first time there. Service and wateress was very friendly but when we received our meal that was the best presentation for a meal and taste...it was excellent for a waffle pizza and sandwich we ordered. We didn't order deserts but we will next time for sure because they look so delicious. We ordered the Butterbeer that had... More

I am vegan and gluten intolerant and it is not easy to find places to eat. This place is amazing! Food is delicious, service outstanding and they really care about allergies.
