Being the only gf bakery in left in town, really don't have much of a choice. Their baked good are very good for the most part. LOVE their pancake mix (though always need to add more water than listed). The problem with the baked goods is that they need more of the add-ins. I recently bought a banana chocolate chip muffin. It had maybe one mini chocolate chip. Their brownies are also very good. They say they come with nuts, but the nuts are chopped so small and so few, you can barely tell they are there. Add more! The frozen pizzas are also very good.

The service is very surly! You ask for something, they have to go back and check if they have it, but don't ask if you want something else, so they seem get annoyed when you ask for something else. The women that work there seem to be a little better. The worst is the one of the main bakers - I believe the owner's son, not sure though. I've seen him be very rude to customers and employees both. I have many allergies and asked about the meat in they use in the pepperoni for the pizza. He seemed very put-out and annoyed by this question, and never truly answered it.

The other thing - they keep all their baked goods in the back. They ones in the front glass cabinet are just there as samples of what they have. They are left there for months, are sun-faded and look very unappealing. Don't let that scare you away. They are good for the most part!

Products always consistently give me diarrhea. No other gluten free products do this to me. The sweets taste good, the bread does not. Buy the new Udi gluten free bread in every co-op or go to Mad Woman bakery in Minneapolis or the total gluten free store Taylor Made 4 You in Woodbury or the great new items in the co-ops. Also, the service couldn't be colder. No sense of customer service--consistently. Never seen anything like it.

Finding bakeries that only make gluten free items is very hard to come by. Bittersweet Bakery makes cookies, muffins, buns, and more. If there is anyone unable to eat gluten and you don't want to bake at home, check out this bakery.

It is so nice to be able to buy gluten free products that are fresh and taste good. I used to struggle to make bread that my family would eat and now I don't have to, I just buy it from Bittersweet. It is family run by a family of celiacs so they understand the importance. They do not make anything with gluten, so you do not have to worry about cross contamination. If you do not need a gluten free diet, you may be surprised at their prices because producing gluten free products costs a lot more than gluten containing ones. Lareen clearly lists all ingredients on her website so you can check other ingredients as well. Many of her products are also casein (dairy) free so those who have children on the GFCF diet for autism can also shop there. Call ahead for special orders and she will have them ready. Several local health food stores also carry her products if you cannot get to the bakery during regular store hours.
