I've decided to break out bakeries from my list of gluten free restaurants in NJ. Just like that list, these are bakeries that advertise they can handle gluten free items (and dairy free). Please note, that every bakery has a different level of gluten awareness and precautions so you should discuss any special needs with them. Where available, I've included any other allergens the bakery states they can handle.
I've also added a map of just the bakeries to the bottom of this list (the map at the bottom of the restaurant page still contains the bakeries and stores as well). If you want to skip down to the bakery only map, just click here: NJ Gluten Free Bakery Map
Bashful Banana Bakery and Cafe (946 Boardwalk on Ocean Colony Walk (between 9th & 10th), Ocean City, NJ 08226) They’ve got quite a few vegan options and will substitute gluten free bread (other allergens unknown) for $.75 more. They also have gluten free/vegan muffins. I’ve never been.
CakeOver (79 N Beverwyck Road, Lake Hiawatha, NJ 07034)(Lake Hiawatha may appear as Parsippany on your GPS) – dedicated gluten free bakery. A number of GF items are / can be made dairy free as well. Entire facility is peanut free. I’ve gotten some desserts from here and they are quite good.
Desserted Pastries (605 North Haddon Ave, Haddonfield, NJ 08033) - This bakery has a menu of GF baked goods for special order only – cookies, sandwich bread, pizza dough, cupcakes, cakes, pie dough, hot dog buns and brownies. They state on their website that they will try most of these dairy free (egg free, soy free, etc) if possible and are willing to try other baked goods on special request. They are also a dedicated Nut free bakery.
Fallon's Gluten Free Bake Shop (339 Crows Mill Road, Fords, NJ 08863) - This dedicated gluten free bakery can also do dairy free with one day’s notice.
Gluten Free Gloriously (267 Main Ave, Stirling, NJ 07980) - Another dedicated gluten free bakery with some gf/df options.
Gluten Free Goodies Galore (657 East Bay Avenue, Manahawkin, NJ 08050) - this bakery doesn't have a website (the link points to their facebook page) and information is a bit sparse. The photos look amazing! They do carry some dairy free products as well.
Grandma’s Kitchen (125 Paris Ave, Northvale, NJ 07647) – Peanut Free/Treenut Free facility. Does Egg Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Vegan on request.
|Papa Ganache Vegan Bakery's Old Location in Keyport, NJ|
My Little Kupcake (685 Haddon Avenue, Collingswood, NJ 08108) – this regular bakery offers GF and Vegan cupcakes as well as GF and Vegan special orders.
Papa Ganache Vegan Bakery (106 Main Street, Matawan, NJ 07747) - vegan bakery with lots of WF options listed online. I emailed to confirm that WF is gluten free and it is but they warned that they are not a dedicated facility. I love this bakery! Click here for my Review of Papa Ganache Vegan Bakery. [Note: they have moved to Matawan, their old address was 25 Church Street, Keyport, NJ 07735.]
Pink Cake Box [Specialty Bake Shop] – this specialty bake shop will do unique gluten free specialty cakes / cupcakes as well for events/weddings. (The owner is gluten free.) This is not a retail location; items are available by special order only. (18 East Main Street #101, Denville, NJ 07834)
Pink Frosting Bakery (534 Bloomfield Avenue, Verona, NJ 07044) – a dedicated vegan cupcakery with 2-4 gluten free options as well. I’ve gotten cupcakes from here a number of times and highly recommend them. (Review coming soon.)
Posh Pop Bakery (86 Broad Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701) – I just ate here recently. This dedicated gluten free cake pop shop has a limited number of dairy free items. They will make dairy free / gluten free soft pretzels on special order in a choice of salted or with cinnamon and sugar.
Sugarflake Bakery (Westwood, NJ 07675, Fair Lawn, NJ 07410, and 397 Franklin Avenue, Wyckoff, NJ 07481) - they have multiple GF/DF options daily and they are only slightly more expensive than their regular cookies. Everything tastes just like their gluten containing counterparts - just like you'd expect a bakery cookie to taste! The owner does special orders as well.
Sweet Avenue Bake Shop (153 Park Avenue, Rutherford, NJ 07070) - this is an entirely vegan bakeshop that has gluten free cupcakes and occasionally other baked goods. I tried to stop by Sunday morning, but they don't open until 11am.
Sweet Note Bagels – is a food service provider of gluten free bagels (also dairy free). You can't buy directly from them, but they are available at eight NJ locations so far: http://www.sweetnotebakery.com/locations.html and many other locations in and around Philadelphia, PA. I got to try them at the Appetite for Awareness last year in Philly and they are the closest to a real NY style bagel I’ve ever had gluten free!
Terra Tea Salon (50 South Fullerton Avenue, Montclair, NJ 07042) - Last year they moved from Church Street into the Montclair Public Library. They always had GF/DF/Vegan options when I went to their Church Street location but I don't know if they still do at the Library.
Wards Pastry (730 Asbury Avenue, Ocean City, NJ 08226) – lists gluten free sugar cookies and gf brownies on their website. Unsure of other allergens.
Wildflour Bakery / Cafe (2691 Main Street, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648) – new dedicated gluten free bakery and cafe. They have limited dairy free options but these include vegan crepes, coconut macarons and some other cafe items (soup, salad, smoothie). Only open for breakfast and lunch (brunch on weekends). Closed Mondays. I haven't been yet.
These dedicated gluten free bakeries are in NY:
Bare Naked Bakery and Cafe (2572 Merrick Rd., Bellmore, NY 11710) - they star their dairy free items on the menu. This is both a bakery and a sit down cafe. I was here about two years ago and enjoyed it. They also provide the gluten free hot dog buns at Madison Square Garden.
By-The-Way Bakery (574 Warburton Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY 10706) - menu is completely gluten free and dairy free. I tried their products at the Colin Leslie Walk last year and they were really good. I recently visited their bakery and reviewed them: Gluten Free at By The Way Bakery!
Flourbuds (116A Main Street, Nyack, NY 10960) – dedicated gluten free bakery with dairy free / vegan options.
Wild Flours Bake Shop (11 New Street, Huntington, NY 11743) – I just ate here a couple of weeks ago and greatly enjoyed it. They are a dedicated gluten free bake shop with a very limited number of items that are not also dairy free (95% are both GF/DF).
