This place is a godsend for anyone with celiac or other sensitivity. My young daughter has celiac disease, so we have been to many gluten-free restaurants from coast to coast. Twist is doing it right. From the fantastic breads and muffins to the hearty meals, everything we tasted was fresh, delicious, and was not crumbly like most GF fare. Please franchise this model nationwide!

Diane

This place great. They are a gluten-free persons Paradise. I have a gluten allergy and have not had a decent sandwich in over a year. The turkey club was amazing, the roll was flaky and soft and tasted like bread. The pastries look amazing too. Well worth the drive.

Chris

This place is a godsend for celiacs.  I drove here from Boston for the first time and had no idea what to expect.  The Boston cream pie was out of this world and everything was safe. Plus, I got 2 loaves of bread for less than $17. Will be back… like every month!

Erin

Phenomenal!!! We have food allergies and this little cafe accommodates us so well and is so delicious.

Beth

I’ve been GF and exploring bakeries for years. Twist is the best GF bakery around. I drive an hour just to eat here! The baked goods don’t fall apart and taste excellent. And the sandwiches… oh my yum! Or weekend brunch – yes please! They have a wide variety of food so there’s always something fun to try.

Lourdes

This is our weekend fave breakfast spot! Having only recently moved to MetroWest, thrilled to find a cafe that offers such yummy vegan options for my husband. Candidly, we usually load up on enough vegan pastries for the week! The staff is so friendly and everything we’ve tried has been delicious. Great coffee too, and the vegan apple muffins were out of this world. A real gem!

Thomas

We had the black bean burger, and to drink we ordered some of their homemade raspberry syrup to mix with sparkling water, and everything was super delicious.  One of our black bean burgers came with oven fries and we couldn’t get enough of the homemade ketchup at every table.  The owner obviously has an amazing attention to detail.  Well done.

Rebecca

Best gluten free bakery and restaurant in the Boston area. Amazing salads and soups. Their oatmeal cookies are yummy. Love the seasonal pound cakes. Best gluten free lasagna I have had.

Lisa

We loved it!! Relaxed atmosphere, great food and tons of coffee options. We also loved the bakery … especially the apple bread. Kids menus. Family friendly. We’ll definitely be going back.

Andrew

This place is amazing. Everything on their menu is gluten free, nut free. There are so many options on their menu and there are items that are dairy free, vegan and yeast free. The food is amazing, we tried their steak sandwich, meatball panini and Buffalo chicken tenders. Everything was awesome. Staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable about how things were made.

Jennifer

Since moving to New England from AZ, Twist is the only place we frequent weekly & bring goodies home. They offer a wide & delicious selection of GF foods. Some of our favorites are the chicken pot pie, apple hand pies, lemon bars & English muffins. Kathryn does an excellent job and the staff is always smiling. It is worth the drive for us for the yummy food we know is 100% GF.

Shelly

Too often we ordered food related to gluten free or food sensitivity’s and the food is not good. At Twist the food is not only geared toward these things, it is simply delicious! I was out to dinner and the waiter asked me what kind of bread I wanted, I said the gluten free.. the bread was the best bread I ever had. I double checked with the waiter and he not only confirmed it, but informed me it came from Twist!!

Giana

Luckily fell into Twist Bakery by accident when trying to find an allergen free cake for my niece’s first birthday. Bought the cupcakes to try and loved them, so we decided to go on with ordering the cake. Delicious and safe for her! Everyone was SO impressed by how delicious the cake was (since they heard it was allergen-free they were very skeptical). The owner went above and beyond to deliver it to me day-of the party so I could transport it over and hour away. She was so kind and super helpful. Will be visiting again for sure!

David

I just ate there for brunch yesterday – OMG what a fantastic find. I haven’t been able to eat dairy and gluten for 8 years, and have never, ever found a place where I could let loose and eat pretty much everything. I understand you may be expanding – which is great news for so many people all over the country! Too bad you can’t reach them all.

The sheer undertaking of a full-scale bakery and cafe with all traditional offerings but fully gluten-free is impressive.

The sandwich bread was quite dense, and the tacos were obviously gluten free (not the exact taste or texture of traditional flour tortillas) but everything was delicious, and the lovely green and vibrant decor was beautiful.

I also tried a chocolate chip cookie.

You couldn’t tell that was gluten free.

Highly recommend!

Everything we had was delicious! The whole place is dedicated gf, and they also cater to many allergen-specific allergies. A wide selection of baked goods, breakfast and lunch meals, and fancy coffee-shop beverages. They also have some items for take and bake, both sweet and savory. We were in just for the day for a sports tournament, but bought a few items to take home in a freezer bag that we bought at the grocery store next door and they filled the ziplock bag we gave them with ice to help keep it frozen for the ride home! Great service, great food, great atmosphere 10/10! We're saving this one for the next time we're in the area!

Twist Bakery is a twist! It’s great to see a place that can make delicious egg tacos with bacon bits and arugula, as well as offering dairy-free and gluten free drink and pastry options. The gluten-free pancakes are fluffy and soft. While the espresso drinks don't impress me, I appreciate the variety of dairy-free options.

Please open a location in CT! The staff was kind and helpful. The food was great. We ordered the crispy chicken sandwich and the Italian chicken panini. Carrot cake was for dessert. Everything was delicious! I recommend and can’t wait to go back when I’m in the area. 🙂

Handcrafted. Quality Ingredients. It’s just what we do.
