If you’re in Bexley looking for a delectable gluten-free treat, you MUST stop here.
They offer a variety of delicious gluten-free, dye-free, and nut-free baked goods. If you’re looking for a place to get some safe breakfast or brunch, this is it!
Okay, I have yet to actually visit this dedicated gluten-free bakery yet (I know, I’m a monster) but I have had the pleasure of trying some of their products as I come across them in coffee shops scattered across Columbus. Let me just say, if you run into their products, do yourself a favor and buy one to try because seriously guys, their stuff is amazing. I particularly love their Oatmeal Cream Pie cookie.
While I have yet to try this specific bakery, I love the concept and definitely will be stopping in to try them out soon. I thought I’d list them in case you’re in the area. This bakery sells gluten-free baked goods made by bakers with autism. Food for Good Thought gives employment to those with autism to help them learn life skills. They also offer a variety of other transition and educational services.
Rest assured, when you’re buying a baked good from Food for Good Thought you are not only nourishing your body but you’re supporting a noble cause!
While not a dedicated gluten-free bakery per se, they do have some pretty amazing reactions. I’ve never had a reaction here (and I’ll be honest I am a pretty sensitive gal) if that helps you make up your mind. Their Parisian macarons are all gluten-free and delicious (I highly recommend them) and their flourless tortes are absolutely worth a trip to one of their cafes. Additionally, when dining here for brunch, I have received nothing but fabulous customer service and accommodations to my allergies.
