Cool little spot with all gluten-free baked goods and foods. I had a pumpkin snicker doodle. The cookie was soft, not too sweet, and filled with a cream-cheese filling. Yum. Since going gluten-free, it's been hard to forgo baked goods. I wish this bakery was closer to where I live! Delicious.

Great gluten-free breakfast options, even for non-GF folks. We had a great breakfast sandwich, and excellent muffins. Super coffee too. Went back in the PM for wonderful cookies.

Great cakes, great service. We were looking for an independent coffee shop and found this little gem. V homely with friendly staff and a chilled vibe. I was particularly happy to find that they know how to make tea too!

Wanting to avoid the chain coffee shops we stopped here for iced coffee and couldn't resist the delicious pastries. Worth a visit.

Good variety of desserts, with a very appealing display. I had the peanut butter bar with chocolate chips. It was sweet for my tastes and the crust was a little thicker than I prefer but peanut butter flavor was there. The shop was full, and everyone seemed to be enjoying their treats.

Aimed primarily at Coeliacs, this great spot is entirely gluten free. Pastries, breads, quiches - all fine to eat which put a big smile on her face. Even for me the food tastes good, which usually it doesn't for a non-coeliac. Good coffee too.

My wife is gluten sensitive. Pastries and baked goodies are not the same without wheat. Even harder to create treats at home, with all the substitute flours. However, Bam Bam bakers have somehow perfected this niche of gluten free baking. All their offerings from pizza to lemon bars are outstanding and unmatched in any other bakery we have ever been...

Yummy! The cookies are delicious. I had the chocolate, peanut butter, and sugar cookies. They did not last long. I will have to try more on my next trip to Portland.

Friendly staff and clean place doesn't outdo the amazing baked goods. We were visiting from out of town and wanted something yummy for breakfast. We had the quiche and weekend breakfast special. Both delicious.

This is a little nirvana for the gluten free or dairy free orjl vegan... It seems no matter what your eating choices (or challenges) are they have a delicious option for you. I am enjoying an amazingly moist, flavorful cranberry, oatmeal cookie and my husband is having a gluten free slice of chicken pizza. Fabulous!! Definitely worth a visit even... More
