Having a food allergy or intolerance can be challenging when dining out especially when it excludes many foods found on an average restaurant menu. It’s not easy to find gluten-free friendly bakeries. We’ve put together the best bakerties throughout L.A.

The Sensitive Baker
10836 1/2 Washington Blvd.
Culver City, CA 90232
(310) 815-1800
More Info

This is one of the first gluten-free bakeries in Los Angeles. It’s under new ownership since it opened, but you can still find cupcakes, breads, bagels and pizza crust. The bakery is open every day.

Babycakes NYC
130 East 6th Street
Los Angeles, CA 90014
(213) 623-5555
More Info

This isn’t just a gluten-free friendly bakery. They don’t use refined sugar and everything is vegan. Many of the offerings are gluten-free, but some use spelt so make sure to check the signs. This hip little bakery serves agave-sweetened cupcakes, muffins, donuts and cookie sandwiches.

BabyCakes Baking Company
24205 Hawthorne Blvd.
Torrance, CA 90505
(310) 373-2500
More Info

This bakery has no relationship to Babycakes NYC, but on certain days you can still enjoy some delightful gluten-free treats. On Wednesdays and Saturdays they bake gluten-free cupcakes, peanut butter cookies, and chocolate chip cookies. You can also call ahead and order gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free or other special orders any day of the week.

Yvonne Condes operates her own gluten-free bakery called Yvonne’s Gluten Free Goodies. All items are available by special order and at farmers markets.
