I found Dempsey Bakery recommended on a celiac travel Facebook group and I made it a must-stop on my trip to Little Rock. I stocked up on frozen lasagna and a pot pie to eat at my Airbnb and got a ton of sweet treats...as well. If you have celiac or any food allergies do yourself a favor and make a stop at Dempsey’s.More

Only place in town with dedicated gluten free kitchen. Pricey compared to regular food, but worth the splurge when you're out of time to cook for yourself! They make all their own breads and sell sandwiches for lunch. Great folks!

I was excited when I realized there was a certified gluten-free bakery in Little Rock. We visited after lunch and liked what I saw. The space is beautiful. It is bright and airy, all in white and red. Plenty of bread options, and I really...liked the sweet area. They have a variety of cheesecake, cupcake, and small cakes. The lemon cheesecake was delicious, though I was tempted by the gorgeous red Velvet cheesecake. I also had a raspberry cheesecake lava cake that was very good. The Wrye-Not "rye" bread is great for sandwiches, and does taste like rye bread. Dempsey is worth a visit even if you are not going gluten-free. There stuff is delicious!More

Very nice staff offered a sample of most items. Everything we tried was very good, but it is a little expensive so we had to decide what we wanted this trip and it was a hard decision. We got loaves of coffee cake and orange-pineapple...plus a couple of cookies. Good choices, especially the orange-pineapple! I don't have food allergies and I usually don't like GF food as to me it is usually bland, but the wife does have food sensitivity so we are always on the hunt for good tasting GF food. Found it here! Will definitely be back!More

Best GF bakery - excellent even as a regular bakery. Slightly pricey, but all GF bakeries are. Highly recommend.

What more can I say, other than it is an excellent gluten-free bakery. My wife has an allergy to gluten and their cookies not only keep her happy, but will more than placate myself and our discerning (when it comes to cookies...) seven-year-old son. Great...place!More
