My daughter and I went to the Lexington Ave location this past Saturday and she loved it. We bought chocolate chip cookies and a fudge brownie bar. Both were great and the prices were very reasonable. This will be a regular stop for us when in NYC.

Pips is amazing!! I stop here every time I am in town for business, and have never been disappointed. The only problem is deciding what to get. The blueberry fairy cakes and banana chip muffins are my favorite so far.

Thoroughly enjoyed the snacks I had at this little gluten free place. It is very convenient too, right near Grand Central Terminal.

This cute little gluten free bakery is right around the corner from Bloom’s Deli. I decided to pass up my Baby Cakes stop this trip so I could check out this place and I am glad I did! They have a lot of great and different items that regular bakeries, let alone gluten free bakeries do not carry. Yes, they... More

Due to the fact that I have gluten intolerance, I was glad to have discovered Pips place during my recent visit to New York. Thank you for your existence. The fact that you are a gluten free bakery I did not have to worry about cross contamination. I enjoyed the gluten free granola, the cookies and the variety of cakes... More

My husband is Celiac and we always try gluten free bakeries. This is one of the best we have found on our travels. I talked with the owner and she really understands how to combine GF flours for different types of bakery items. The Coconut Cake was amazing and the cookies were great. We went back three times for breakfast... More

We had the chance to visit Pips this weekend. Wow, what a treat! I bought three different sweets and each was divine. If I could eat like that every day I would never miss gluten! We got to meet the owner and chat with her about celiac, the bakery, etc. She was a charming woman and I wish her and... More

What a disappointment! Definitely does NOT deserve the high ranking. The cup cakes were heavy and dry. If you are gluten free then get the Gluten Free Cake Mix Doctor cookbook and Betty Crocker cake mixes!
