Flour Chylde Bakery goes gluten-free

Posted on June 26th, 2014 by Alison Read 3 Comments - Add Your Own »

Flour Chylde Bakery in Novato, California has gone completely gluten-free. They are not a new bakery — in fact, they have been baking gluten-free tortes for 12 years, but the bakery itself was not exclusively gluten-free. ‘Til now!

I visited the cafe yesterday, brought my computer to do some work, and ordered a sandwich. I felt like a completely normal person! I had the Turkey & Brie sandwich, which has dried cranberries, Italian vinaigrette and Dijon mustard. It was delicious, although I would have preferred more filling in the sandwich. With a side salad it was $7, which I found very reasonable. They have a full sandwich menu, including breakfast sandwiches, veggie sandwiches and a BLT. Or you can take one of their bread selections home with you.

The bakery case holds all kinds of gluten-free goodies: tortes, scones, fritters, turnovers, cookies and muffins. I couldn’t resist getting one of my favorite tortes, Rapture. It is a combination of their Linzer Torte (also delicious) and the Chocolate Torte (so rich!)

Full-size cakes and tortes are also available. The take-away menu lists double-layer frosted cakes — Rustic Vanilla, Chocolate Devil’s Food, Red Velvet and Pumpkin. There is a large selection of tortes, both small and full-size.

If you can’t get to their cafe, you can find them at one of the many Bay Area farmers’ markets – to see which ones they participate in, please see their Farmers’ Market listing.

  1. I love the Rapture torte. My husband and I recently went
    to a sailing anniversary party. The hosts are gluten free
    and had ordered the linzer torte cake, choco cake and lemon cake from Flour Chylde for their celebration cakes. Believe
    me, the whole party who are mostly gluten people ate and
    loved the cakes without knowing that they were gluten free.
    I am so glad that it is now a dedicated bakery. Thank you
    Flour Chylde.

  2. Yay!!! Rapture is my favorite too, Lynn! I had no idea they were going completely GF, but of course I get all my best info from you Alison. Thank you!
