Mariposa BakeryToday I’m excited to tell you about a gluten-free bakery that not only offers amazingly delicious gluten-free products, but one that I frequently get to visit  as they are located right here in the beautiful Bay Area.

Mariposa’s gluten-free kitchen can be found in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland. At this location is also their first retail bakeshop. Luckily for both San Franciscans and tourists headed to this amazing city, Mariposa also has a store in the Ferry Terminal Building where customers can expect to find all sorts of yummy breads and hand-crafted goodies.

Savory products include lots of fantastic breads, bagels, crackers, croutons, pizza bases and quiche. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, the selection includes cakes, cupcakes (including their dreamy penguino – a chocolate cupcake filled with cream!), cookies, muffins, pastries and brownies. Everything is 100% gluten-free and is extremely delicious.

At special times of the year like Christmas, Fourth of July, Halloween and Easter, Mariposa offers a selection of holiday themed goodies. Their gluten-free hot cross buns are a delicious Easter treat.

If you find yourself in the Bay Area, get on over to Mariposa Baking Co and enjoy a delicious bite of gluten-free magic. You can also check out the mail order store on their website for delivery information.

One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday afternoon is to walk down to the Ferry Terminal, buy myself a gluten-free muffin, cinnamon roll or piece of cake from Mariposa Baking Co and enjoy it by the bay. I’m often surrounded by confident seagulls eager to taste my delicious treat. Unlucky for them, rarely do I leave them with time to make their move.
