Flour Chylde Bakery | Triumph Dining Review

flourchyldebakery-640x480It was another long weekend at a dance competition. Tired of hotel food, I punched up Yelp on my iPhone and searched for a farmers’ market near this particular convention center. This led me to the Flour Chylde Bakery stand in downtown Sunnyvale, California. Here’s a link to their farmers’ market locations.

Honestly, if you didn’t know that their baked goods were gluten-free, you’d never think it.

Flour Chylde Bakery began in 2002 with one torte sold at local farmers’ markets. Since then they’ve been baking and promoting the benefits of a gluten-free lifestyle and have created line of hand-crafted, regional, gluten-free products. The café is located at 850 Grant Ave. in Novato, California, north of San Francisco.

Some of the things you can find there are:

Breakfast Sandwiches

  • Egg & Cheese: fresh eggs, Asiago cheese & basil pesto.
  • Egg, Cheese & Bacon: fresh eggs, cheddar cheese & bacon.
  • Egg Salad with lemon vinaigrette, greens & Dijon mustard.

Gluten-Free Sandwiches & Paninis
