These guys make a gluten free cinnamon bum that ranks right up there with Cinnobon. OMG. And, everything in the place is gluten free. Carrot cake, brownies, cakes, pies, white bread, grain bread. I was in heaven.

Muffins, cupcakes, cookies, breads. You still want some while you're on vacation, yet finding gluten-free options can be difficult. Not in Sarasota! The Island Gluten Free Bakery has it all and even serves lunch (pizza, sandwiches, and quiche) from 10am - 2pm.

The owner of The Toasted Mango Cafe recommended we try this bakery due to eating gluten free. I got muffins and cookies and they were yummy. You can have the gluten free items shipped to you. (Yes)

As a strictly gluten free family visiting the area we were excited to learn about this well rated and renowned bakery. We stopped for some snacks on our way to the beach: scones, cookies, muffin, and cinnamon roll. My kids (12 and 14) were super excited yet when they tasted the foods described them as "underwhelming", "super dry", "not flavorable ..... where are the blueberries?" (in regards to blueberry scone). Given the raves and the cost we were all surprised that frozen Udis muffins and even cinnamon rolls were far superior to these fresh made dry morsels. The various gf groceries might be helpful for some but so overpriced for cereal and such you can buy at Trader Joe's or other grocery stores. My expectations were far higher than what it was for us. Definitely not worth a special trip, even if you have Celiac or high gf intolerance like my family does.

We have purchased breads, pies and cakes for several years at Island GF bakery. We also try to frequent the restaurants that serve their products. Today was the first time we have dined in Island GF Bakery and it was terrific! I had an Italian sub on their hoagie roll. It is offered hot or cold - I chose hot and it arrived toasty and delicious. My companion had quiche and we shared some key lime pie. It was fantastic. This is easily a take-out spot as well, on your way home or to Siesta Key beach. I am thrilled to have a "to-go" gluten free option in Sarasota, especially when it's 100% safe for celiacs and such high quality. Be sure and try the muffins, cinnamon rolls and cookies, too!
