...so says my daughter. We ordered a monster sized gluten free chocolate fudge cake for my daughter's birthday. Absolutely delicious, even for us non GF folks. Friendly and thankful staff greeted us. We've been back several times to try all GF and regular items. Always busy, so that says it's good!

There was a varied assortment of pastries to choose from. We chose a couple of mixed berry muffins, which were large and very good. In addition, we boughy some caneles. Not... More

This was our last stop on a bike ride/foodie tour of Church Hill. No, we were not hungry at all by the time we arrived here, our last stop. Yes, we ate the beautiful caneles placed before us. We are now obsessed!

So, I have a confession... I visited this bakery on three separate occasions over two weeks. Y'all, I just couldn't help it. They are constantly bringing out new selections all day. For those of us that are gluten free, this is a dream... I had coffee cake, butter milk pie and canales. They also brew a great cup of coffee....... More

Recommended as a great option for gluten-free, it was disappointing—except that I was able to get a HUGE egg and cheese sandwich on a GF english muffin. Besides the GF limitation, the biscuit was delectable and also enormous. The muffins were gorgeous, and the atmosphere was cozy. A nice hang.

Great place to stop by and grab a coffee and muffin. Always have a lovely selection of gluten free cakes which are delicious. Regular visits needed whenever I'm in Richmond

Particularly if you or your friends need gluten free food that still tastes great. Best sticky buns around.

If I had known this place was so affordable and good, we would have come here for breakfast. As it was we had a tea, coffee and split a vanilla donut. The donut was sweet but not too sweet, the vanilla flavor shined through. It was the only food we had, so I can not give 5 stars. It was... More

Wonderful neighborhood bakery that serves homemade muffins and pastries. I had the peach and cranberry muffin and it just melted in your mouth. It is only open for breakfast and lunch. They have a limited selection so get there early.

Thank Karen C
