If there’s gonna be a gluten-free, vegan, organic bakery, Fremont seems a good place to put it. Now, if you’re like me (loving all things butter and flour), a place like The Flying Apron may not be first on your list (as it wasn’t for me). But, since the gluten-free craze seems to be expanding, it helps to know about good options in case you have to feed folks who are vegan or gluten-intolerant.
The cookies, doughnuts, cakes, etc seemed to go on and on, and each item was labeled with a full list of ingredients. I asked one of the workers to help me choose a few items, and together we came up with three: the peanut butter chocolate chunk cookie, a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting, and a lemon poppyseed muffin.
I thought the cookie was easily the best of the three. Peanut butter is my second-favorite fat (after butter), and I didn’t notice the absence of regular flour. The texture was crunchy and crumbly, and worked for me. The other two items didn’t please me quite as much. The muffin tasted rubbery and chewy, and the cupcake lacked the proper texture (although the icing was fine). I think it’s just very difficult to make cake and muffin batter without using “real” flour. My friend, who is gluten-intolerant, told me these were some of the best desserts she had ever had since going gluten-free, and I believe her. If you have dietary restrictions, The Flying Apron is a great option for dessert. Otherwise, I suggest sticking to wheat, butter, and eggs.

Awesomely delicious!

First, keep in mind that the Flying Apron offers gluten-free (meaning no white, wheat, spelt, etc. flours) items that do not contain animal products (cheese, milk, etc). Plus, they use alternative sweeteners (maple syrup, honey, agave, etc). Second, if this is what you are looking for and not the refined stuff found at your normal run-of-the-mill bakery, then you will not be disappointed. Almost everything is delicious...to me, of course. Delicious is a subjective term, I am aware. However, I constantly scour the city looking for other gluten-free vegan treats and everything I have found thus far pales in comparison to the goodness found at the Flying Apron. Taste each treat with an open mind. If you're looking for white flour pastries, you are barking up the wrong tree.

Oh gosh

I had no idea that non GF baked goods were produced here as well! I was sooo sick after eating at flying apron, but thought perhaps I had developed an allergy to chickpea flour. I came for the sweets, but stayed for lunch. Must say, the soups were non-spectacular, and I will most likely be giving away the bread I bought now that I know about shared equipment.

Disappointing for allergy folks

As someone with multiple food allergies, I was hopeful about FA. But ugh is right; I had the veggie pot pie, and indeed, it was dry and sandy. The chocolate-chip cookie was OK if you can manage sugar, but the service was just plain bad. Try making The Cravings Place's brownie mix at home instead - yummy!

Misleading labels

Flying Apron advertises that they have wheat-free, gluten-free and vegan stuff.. what they don't announce in big letters is that the tiny bakery is not GF and they bake all the GF and non-GF stuff all the same day, on the same equipement. So if you are just trying out the taste of gluten free food but don't really need it for medical reasons, go ahead and eat there. If you have a legitimate reason to be GF, it's not worth the risk of contamination. My child has never been so sick as when she ate 1/2 a Flying Apron Muffin. To top it off, the company response to my complaint was really bad. NEver again!

salty-sandy cupcakes

I like that Flying Apron is out there making wheat-free treats, but I found their Chai Cupcakes to be completely inedible. Way too salty, the consistency of the cake was really sandy and not easy to eat. It literally sucked the moisture out of my mouth. I was especially horrified to see that I had paid 13$ to have this sort of experience. I have to say that I have no intention of giving any of their other baked goods a try. I think PCC does a much better job with their spelt scones. These rock and they are only sweetened with dates and applesauce!

Treats in pink boxes

A unique little window at the bottom of a ramp- get yourself delicious, wholesome treats- then carry them off in their pink box- everyone will know where you've been.
