While traveling to other places, I love exploring gluten-free friendly food establishments. I get so excited whenever I come across 100% gluten-free restaurants, in fact so do my family and friends! Well, during my stay in Atlanta, my sister-in-law mentioned to me that she heard about a gluten-free bakery from one of her neighbors. Needless to say, I was excited to try it out. So, after mapping the location on my phone, we found the quaint bakery tucked away underneath the stairwell in a shopping plaza in Atlanta (Sandy Springs to be exact). Upon entering, awaiting my arrival was a friendly front desk employee with three different types of samples–cinnamon bread, chocolate chip cookies and banana bread! As I browsed the menu and talked with the staff member, several locals stopped by to purchase cookies, breads, etc.; in fact, one man was drooling over the baked goods and even said that the chocolate chip cookies where the best ever! Needless to say, he walked away with a huge shopping bag of goodies for his niece.
Though the bakery is 100% gluten-free, it does still have other items that may be of concern for some people (like me) such as dairy, eggs, and yeast. So, be sure to review the menu and ask questions. I was unable to purchase many of the items due to the cane sugar and yeast (I don’t eat these), but I did walk away with a loaf of the C.R.A.W. Bread. Just thinking about it as I write this blog makes me want to have a slice! Though the bread has a hint of brown sugar (about a tablespoon I was told), it is so little in comparison to the volume that it is almost negligible.
So, if you live anywhere close to Sally’s Bakery and you are gluten-free, vegan, etc. then you must, must visit this place. There’s a little bit of everything for someone, even me!
