So, I am not someone who is crazy for gluten-free in any way, but I realize that a lot of people either choose to eat gluten-free for whatever reason, or just plain can’t eat gluten.
Cookie Stéfanie and Bake 2Go are two gluten free bakeries in Montreal that I’ve visited and tried the goods and I can say – yes – they are good.
Cookie Stéfanie is a beautiful bakery in Old Montreal. The top photo and cupcakes are from their bakery. Here are a few more of their yummy treats:
Their products can be bought on site or in various spots around town including several Java U’s. They also can cater to business meetings and offer boxed gifts.
Baked2Go, although also gluten-free, is a bit of a different concept. Here the emphasis is on improving the healthiness of the baked product through the use of alternative flours. In addition, the products are rigorously tested and can be consumed by those with Celiac disease.
They also offer high protein goods that will keep you fuller for longer instead of reaching for the vending machine.
Their approach is very scientific and the owner has a masters in food science & technology.
I can recommend either spot if you are craving some gluten free alternatives, or if you require them due to health requirements.
