So happy to have found a dedicated gluten-free bakery in the area. However, the baked goods we purchased (approx. $50), went stale quickly, especially the french bread loaf which literally crumbled apart in the toaster on day two. Don't know if they weren't fresh when...More

Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry your experience wasn't up to expectations. We're just an old fashioned bakery and use the old fashion moto...eat it or freeze it. You assumed correctly-we don't use preservatives nor dough conditioners. Fresh baked goods without stablizer's just don't...More

Recently I have needed to cut out gluten. The hardest part was my love for good pasta and bread. I found a rice pasta that although not as good, does make good pasta salad. I had looked at all the gluten free breads in 4...More

Can’t resist going back every trip to Siesta Key and pleased to learn Irma did not do too much harm to the team. Thèse muffins are to die for.

These guys make a gluten free cinnamon bum that ranks right up there with Cinnobon. OMG. And, everything in the place is gluten free. Carrot cake, brownies, cakes, pies, white bread, grain bread. I was in heaven.

Muffins, cupcakes, cookies, breads. You still want some while you're on vacation, yet finding gluten-free options can be difficult. Not in Sarasota! The Island Gluten Free Bakery has it all and even serves lunch (pizza, sandwiches, and quiche) from 10am - 2pm.

The owner of The Toasted Mango Cafe recommended we try this bakery due to eating gluten free. I got muffins and cookies and they were yummy. You can have the gluten free items shipped to you. (Yes)
