“super cute and 100% gluten-free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

The bakery is adorable and the staff was friendly. I had their triple berry muffin (which is also dairy-free), their almond cakes, and their french apple cake. I also had my first gluten-free donut in YEARS! It was perfect.

Next time I will try more of their savory items like the sandwiches. Definitely going back for more!

“LOVE this gluten free treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

Finally, a gluten free place where I can order a sandwich! I've had their "Carmelita" sandwich and was happy. Bread is great, the right amount of meat and avocado and whatever else is on there. My husband had another choice and felt the pesto overwhelmed the other ingredients. My son had the almond butter and jam and was extremely satisfied. The multigrain loaves are a dream and I got three the last time I was there. You need to show up before noon or risk finding the bread sold out. The brownies are very nice, the almond rounds are fabulous and the bread pudding is yummy. I appreciate that nothing is overly sweet. I've also tried their take out frozen ravioli bags and they are good. The only thing that I did not enjoy was the salt bagel I had last week. They are closed on Mondays. The staff is friendly (Alicia and Lea) and put up with my requests for them to wear gloves when grabbing my baked goods. I plan on making this place a constant habit.
Teensy bit of advice to Zest: please remove the tops of the garbage cans to make it easier to toss away refuse.
