“Unbelievable gluten-free!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

if you're a celiac or travel with one, you know that it can be difficult to find g-free foods or trust places that claim to be g-free. No problems here! Just absolutely delicious gluten-free bread and pastries. We visited for snacks during a week of vacation in Siesta Key and, on the request of our celiac son, stocked up on the way home with bread, pizza crust, and cookies. Even our non-celiac teen daughter (who normally hates g-free foods) requested another brownie and chocolate-chocolate chip muffin for the ride home. We all agreed: You wouldn't know this stuff was g-free unless you were told - and that's a major feat!

“GREAT!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

LOVED the cranberry bread! Suggestion for turkey sandwiches was a hit! Wish the price wasn't so high but it was very good bread and we are glad that we decided to get some!

Reviewed November 25, 2013

Fabulous gluten-free bakery in Sarasora - plenty of choice of breads/cakes etc. Also have a leaflet listing local restaurants that stock their items so you know they will have a gluten-free menu

This bakery has some of the best gluten free bread, pizza crusts and baked goods! Prices are comparable with other gluten free bakery's but quality is the best!

“I was really surprised”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

island Bakery needs to work on it's atmosphere. We drove 45 minutes to try this place and it was not worth it. I was thinking that something noted as voted bast bakery would be delicious. I am a baker and eating gluten free does not have to be subpar. The man was very nice that waited on us but there was not a lot to take home with us - they had been wiped out by a larger order prior to our coming in - which was fine - totally understandable. What we did taste was not the best GF I have ever had...but hey! People love it so I am happy for them that their business is succeeding. :)
