Got a Gluten Allergy? You’ll Find Gluten-Free Treats at The Happy Tart

Perhaps the greatest compliment you can give The Happy Tart is to say that you would never have realized it’s an entirely gluten-free bakery unless somebody told you, and a quick glance at this bakery’s Yelp reviews shows that quite a few people are saying just that. The baked goods here are entirely gluten-free, but they don’t seem like an “imitation” of more traditional products.

Owner and head chef Emma Cech discovered that she was gluten intolerant while she was studying pastry cooking at L’Academie de Cuisine, but couldn’t imagine being unable to savor all the delicious treats she was learning to bake. Thus, she dedicated herself to perfecting gluten-free recipes for traditional French pastries, and today customers of The Happy Tart get to reap the rewards of her hard work!
