We have many nut-free items at both locations and we can happily make you a nut-free cake or cupcakes for special orders. That being said we are NOT a nut-free facility. We use 5 different types of nuts in our baking: Pistachios, Walnuts, Almonds, Hazelnuts and Peanuts. We take great caution when it comes to cross contamination and sanitize all bakeware and equipment in between uses.

We blend our own gluten-free flour mix using sorghum flour, white & brown rice flour, tapioca flour and guar gum.

What do you use for sweetener?

Most of our baked goods are made with organic fair-trade evaporated cane juice, some also include organic brown sugar or organic confectioners sugar. Our sugar-free treats are sweetened with either agave, maple syrup, brown rice syrup and/or dates.

What is organic?

Much of what we source is organic.  All of our sweeteners, dried fruit, proteins (legumes, tempeh and tofu) plus much more are organic.  In addition, all of our spices for both sweet and savory are organic and fair trade and all of the produce we use is organic and local whenever possible. All other ingredients are as organic as they can be although at times we might source locally grown or sustainable choices instead. All of our ingredients are sourced with the highest quality in mind.
