I keep getting emails from readers telling me I have to go and try Eden B Bakery in Bellevue, WA. My Gluten Free Teen had the day off from school so we decided to drop in on the bakery.
Yes, it is located in the Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Bellevue dealership. The bakery was looking for a home and this space in the dealership was available. Just go in the side door and head down the hall - it is located on the left.
You can take your treats with you or eat at one of the tables. Once you step into the bakery you forget you are in a car dealership. It is very quaint and nicely decorated. Not to mention the warm reception by Brooke, the Executive Chef and Co-Owner.
And, yes, it truly has fabulous treats. Alex tried the GF pizza for lunch and loved it - Friday is Pizza day at the Cafe.
We also sampled GF cookies. Alex declared she had not had cookies this good since the pre-gluten free days when we drove to Leavenworth and stopped at a speciality cookie shop for cookies and hot chocolate after a day in the snow. Soft, creamy, with a hint lemon. Sweet but just enough to make your mouth water without making you feel overwhelmed by all of the sweetness. Bottom line - the best GF cookie we have sampled in a long time!
We also ate cupcakes,
Hands down delicious. I dare you to compare it with any high quality non-gluten free bakery because I am sure it will win.
It was a pleasure to meet Brooke Miller the Executive Chef and Co-Owner. Brooke has been a chef for sixteen years. She started baking gluten free when her mom was diagnosed with fybromyalgia and found a lot of relief by going gluten free. Not satisfied with what was available for those on the GF diet, Brooke rolled up her sleeves and started experimenting and reading every gluten free cookbook she could get her hands on. After 3 tenacious years of testing and tasting, she finally had it!! A portfolio of delicious gluten free breads, cupcakes, cookies and more. Her hard work paid off as her bakery has truly exceptionally good treats.
The bakery also serves GF breakfast and lunch. Friday is Pizza Day, so my GF Teen had a vegetarian pizza and loved it. They also have a full coffee bar, smoothies and Italian sodas. With 24 hours notice, you can bring home a loaf of bread.
Eastsiders, we are so lucky to have this great GF bakery at our back door. Drop in, say hello to Brooke and eat your heart out!
