Adorable gluten free bakery downtown Portland! The takeout was available so I loaded up on lots of goodies to munch on the next 2 days or so on my solo trip. The service was great and I noted lots of cleaning of pens, register etc....Only of my favorites in the box was the macaroon. The coconut was caramelized and yet the macaroon was soft. I tried sign of freshness! The pop tart was so flaky and wonderful it was gone in about 6 mins! Lol! The cinnamon sugar in the middle was just the right amount. The NeedHam was new to me. I’m not sure about mashed potatoes, coconut and covered in chocolate but it was still fun to try! The spinach quiche was wonderful heated up the next day ! I cannot wait to return to Portland and visit this bakery again!More

Pleasantly surprised to find this gem while visiting. All items are gluten free and there are many vegan and dairy free delicacies. With very big eyes we went in and ordered 3-bean (meatless) chili, veggie lasagna, vegan pizza slice, cheese pizza slice (yup all GF)...as well as whoop or pie and choc choc cookie. Topped with chai latte (mom got coffee, kids got cold drinks). All was delicious. Definitely recommend, gluten allergy people especially but the everyday individual will appreciate as well.More

I actually cried when I asked the baker if the cinnamon roll was gluten free and she replied everything in the Bakery is Gluten Free!!! There was so much to choose from I was on a mission to get three of my favorite baked goods...that are hard to find Gluten Free, cinnamon rolls, everything bagels and a good hardy loaf of bread. I found all three and more. My son Louie and I had two different pizzas both delicious mine was with vegan cheese which passed this cheese lovers taste test. I was smiling ear to ear as I left my new favorite bakery ever!! Can't wait to visit my son again. I will definitely visit Bam Bam Bakery whenever in Portland, Maine you should too!!More

My daughter has been GF since she was seven and in the last 20 or so years these are simply the best baked goods I have tried. I baked a lot of GF cakes and breads on my own in the beginning and it's hard...to believe they can make all these GF products so good- not even GF good- just plain good ; )More

I have Celiac Disease and must be gluten free (it is not a choice). Heard about this place from some other folks visiting the Portland area and I'm glad we took their advice. I rarely get to stop in a bakery and order something, especially...something so dee-licious. We were in Portland 5 days; we stopped here 3 times!!! Many other items looked scrumptious, too, but I just had to stick with the Cinnamon Rolls. Even if you're not GF, give it try. If you must be GF, definitely stop in!More

Bought chicken pot pie at over $10. Can honestly say there was virtually no chicken in it. Full of peas and carrots and a bit bland. Saving grace was the pastry. The server didn’t really seem to want to serve us and was miserable and...seemed to think he was doing us a favour rather than us being the customer!More
