Recently, something very exciting happened in Atlanta. Our first gluten-free special order bakery opened! Sally’s Bakery opened its doors to rave reviews on December 14th in Sandy Springs, GA. Their facility is 100% gluten-free and the talented bakers at Sally’s make buns, English muffins, chocolate chip cookies, pizzas and various breads. Several items are also free of dairy, soy and eggs so those of you with multiple intolerences are not fogotten at Sally’s Bakery. One thing that is not missing from the goods at the bakery is great taste!
Though I’ve not tried the take and bake pizzas or chocolate chip cookies from the bakery yet, my bet is that they are as tasty as the other items that owner Bonnie and her daughter Sally have created! The bakery uses high quality ingredients in their products and that is really reflected in the taste. There are several great gluten-free breads available, including but not limited to, pumpkin and banana quick breads. In the summer I can envision the bakery possibly making some other seasonal breads like zucchini and strawberry.
My favorites from the bakery are the C.R.A.W. Bread, the Pumpkin Bread and the Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins. The Hamburger Buns from Sally’s Bakery were enjoyed by Atlanta Gluten-free Dinner Club members back when Bonnie, the owner, first started her baking business. Everyone raved about the buns and suggested that Cheeseburger in Paradise, where the event was being held, should offer Sally’s buns with their burgers!
Presently, the bakery is a special order business. Customers can all ahead and place their orders and pick it up 24-48 hours later. Each day there will be some extra goods to sell to walk-in customers but when they’re gone – they’re gone. If you don’t place an order before dropping by the bakery, be sure to stop in early so you won’t miss them! During my visit I snagged an extra mini pumpkin loaf along with my pre-ordered English muffins. The sweet cinnamon flavor of the English Muffins is perfect with a smear of cream cheese! I’m excited to be able to have one of these treats during our visit to Tennessee this week!
Sally’s Bakery will begin accepting internet orders for shipping on January 4th, 2010. The bakery’s products freeze quite well if you want to stock up on them for future use. Just thaw them out when you’re ready to eat them and enjoy. The positive response by the Atlanta gluten-free community to Sally’s Bakery has been both exciting and heart warming to witness. If you’re in the Atlanta area, drop by Sally’s Bakery and check out their great gluten-free goodness! For those outside the area, remember that online ordering is available on January 4th, 2010!
