A note from Melinda:

Thank you for supporting Melinda’s Gluten Free! As we all know, we are in an unprecedented time during the COVID-19 virus. We are doing everything we can here at the bakery to ensure your safety while also surviving the changes. To that end, we will be open Thursdays through Sundays, our usual hours. We will allow only 1 masked customer or customer group in at a time. We will be sanitizing money that exchanges hands, cleaning our screens between customers, and providing sanitizer to you, our beloved customer. Thank you for diligently working with us to ensure all of our safety.

With Great Thanks and Gratitude,


Your Friend When Gluten Isn't!

What's cookin' over at Melinda's Gluten Free Bakery? I am so glad you asked!

We have a little something for everyone, savory and sweet... and a few new things we've come up with that we think you'll love. We bake our bread fresh daily, including weekend baguettes and sourdough. The cinnamon rolls and croissants continue to sell out regularly, despite our best efforts to keep up! Our latest addition is a range of new puff pastries with buttery layers and crispy crusts and a variety of tempting daily fillings…

Aaaaaand of course, you'll find all of your favorites in the case, from Blueberry Muffins to decadent chocolate brownies that have been dusted with powdered sugar and kissed with chocolate ganache, including our much-loved donuts. As always, we offer our daily vanilla with maple, vanilla with chocolate, chocolate with vanilla and chocolate with chocolate (because you can never have too much chocolate!!!) as well as the occasional extra-special seasonal donuts.

We'll be waiting for ya with a smile!
