We always come here when we are in the area. The food is brilliant, even to me, a non coeliac. My wife loves the food, and we always have a coffee too, which is also good. If you are coeliac (or even if you're not),...More

It's such a relief to be able to be certain there's no gluten ingredients or cross contamination. The sandwich bread and sub buns are so soft and moist! Pick up enough to last your whole stay. The cinnamon rolls are what dreams are made of!

Stopped by late afternoon and a lot of items were sold out. Tried the mini Key Lime pie, 2 different muffins and peanut butter cookies. Nothing tasted very good and were dry.

The cinnamon bun with a side of cinnamon butter cream was amazing. It was really warm. Also had the chocolate pecan pie which was great. It’s not cheap, the bun was $4.50. They do cakes, bread, flour, pasta etc, all GF. Definitely worthwhile if you...More

We are glad you were delighted. Our products certainly are more expensive than a store bought version-we can't compete with their prices. Likewise, they can't compete with our ingredients- we use certified organic oils, sugars and use non-GMO ingredients. We appreciate your comments and thank...More

A wonderful little bakery/cafe run by 3 ladies- Karen, Vickie and Kim. It's a dedicated gluten free facility and they make delicious gluten free bread, scones, muffins, cakes etc and sell it in they're cafe along with great coffee! Also serving sandwiches, subs and pizza on their fresh baked breads/crust from 10am to 2pm. Just off Siesta Key in Sarasota Fl. Wonderful find for Coeliacs.
