“Delicious Gluten-free !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

I stopped here recently to pick up some "to go" items during a recent trip to the Casco Bay Islands with a friend, on his birthday. I've purchased Bam Bam's products several times before, and have not been disappointed. This time I bought a macaroon with chocolate drizzle, a sticky bun and two Stromboli breakfast sandwiches. All were quite delicious. It's hard to believe that ALL of their products are made gluten-free, but they are. Apparently long-gone are the days where one who needs to eat gluten-free has to settled for less. Bam Bam has figured-out the perfect recipes for perfect gluten-free eating. They are not cheap, but are also not the most expensive bakery I have visited.... and its well worth it. I will go back for sure.

“Healthy and Scrumptious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

My family is a bunch of health nuts and we were drooling when we stepped into this gluten free and vegan friendly bakery. The bakery has seating, a restroom, magazines and DELICIOUS GOODIES. We visited it several times on our trip and stopped on our way home to pick up the daily loaf of bread to bring to NJ. Make sure to sample a bunch of different things, it is worth it. We tried some of the breads, cookies, muffins, etc., and nothing disappointed us.

“Awesome GF bakery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Wish every town had one like this. Great desserts and treats as well as pizza and Stromboli. Great to stop here for lunch and pick up what I needed. We stopped in twice in our 3 day stay there. Cute place with several tables and chairs.

“The Best Bakery, gluten free or not!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

This bakery makes a wide range of cookies, cakes, muffins, bread and other pastries that are all gluten free and absolutely scrumptious! I am not gluten intolerant but just prefer to eat gluten free foods. The staff are very friendly too! I live in Portland and go there at least twice a week.

“Eating gluten free is finally tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Since making the change to gluten free four years ago due a sensitivity, food that actually tastes great is hard to come by. Especially baked goods! But Bam Bam Bakery has done it and my boyfriend and I are in heaven every time we visit Portland! The whoopie pies and their pizzas were our favorites! Highly recommend, even if you're not gluten free!
