Corner Bakery Gluten Free Menu

Corner Bakery is a tricky one for us gluten-free folks. So what is so tricky about the Corner Bakery Gluten Free Menu? Well, they don’t really have one.

When I went to order at Corner Bakery I asked if I could see their gluten free menu. This is what they handed to me:

The menu is from 2010 and it’s 2014. I hope they update it soon. having that said, here is what they have that is gluten free:

I ordered a cup of the chicken tortilla soup and a chopped salad. Both were good. The one thing I will note is that everything at Corner Bakery comes with a side of bread. I specifically ordered no bread, but I received a piece of bread on top of my salad when it arrived. Make sure you are extremely explicit about this when ordering.

Because Corner Bakery is a bakery with lots of baked goods, there is a high risk for cross contamination here. The location I went to even had staff that admitted this. So, if you are celiac or someone with extreme gluten sensitivity you might want to think twice before eating here.

The other thing about the menu I was unclear on is why the eggs aren’t gluten free but egg whites are. They may use flour in their batter to make the eggs fluffier. I have yet to confirm this. If you are reading this and know, please post in the comments.

Overall, Corner Bakery is not the easiest place to find gluten-free foods but they still have a gluten free menu you can look at and you should be able to grab a salad or soup or egg white dish that will be a good choice.

You can get a Sprinkles Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcake any day of the week – they are baked daily unlike other flavors that are only available on certain days or have to be special ordered.

They made sure to put my gluten free red velvet cupcake in a separate bag apart from the other cupcakes I ordered which I appreciated. The gluten free cupcakes also have a G on them so you can know that you are eating a gluten free cupcake. I tried the gluten free red velvet cupcake and I was pretty impressed. It’s been years since I’ve had a cupcake or a Sprinkles one so I can’t really remember what they taste like. The icing tasted the same because the icing is gluten free naturally. The cake tasted pretty good. I did notice a bit of a chalky aftertaste, but it was very mild and the cake had a lot more taste than most gluten free cupcakes I have tried. I have not been able to find out more information on the Sprinkles gluten free cooking practices but I do know their gluten free cupcake is made using gluten free flour and the icing on the red velvet cupcake is their standard cream cheese flavored frosting. I will continue to dig for more information on this and will upload it when I find out more info.
