Start From Scratch- Bakery Review

New in Town

There is a new bakery in town AND it is gluten-free and vegan. Start From Scratch has not even been opened a week and I have now been there twice, it is that good! Located in Pinecrest, just south of Trader Joe’s, they have a variety of baked good and a fabulous lunch menu, all from a certified gluten AND dairy free kitchen. It is rare to find such a place in Miami, and to find one this delicious is a real treat. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, owners and staff are knowledgeable, and it is the ONLY completely gluten-free bakery in South Florida. Delicious, vegan, organic and gluten-free, this place is sure to become a hit. Start From Scratch Bakery gets a green light when it comes to being Celiac and Gluten-Sensitive friendly!

My husband and I tried the

Pita Stuffed With Spinach, Tomatoes, Homemade Baked Falafel & House-Made Chipotle Mayo With A Side of Potato Fusion and Nachos Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, Black Beans, House-Made Pico de Gallo, House-Made Chipotle Mayo & House-Made Sour Cream for lunch.

They were great. Pita bread was nice and soft, the nachos were full of flavor. I am not sure what is in vegan sour cream, but it was really good.

For dessert we picked up a variety of goodies.

A Blueberry Blast Muffin, Chocolate Macaroon Cookie, Anything But Vanilla Cupcake, and a Chocolate Almond Bar. Last week we tried the Banana Muffin and the Upper Crust Coffee Cake.Untitled design(4)

All of their baked goods were moist, there was none of the grit that you usually get with gluten-free baked goods. Our favorites were the muffins. They are all amazing. After eating the Banana Muffin my husband said,

Babe, your Banana bread is great, but I hate to tell you, this is better.

I personally found the cupcake to be a bit on the sweet side, but my husband liked it. There was a delicious blueberry frosting, but unfortunately it melted before we got home, so it didn’t make it into the pictures.  The cookies and chocolate bar were really good as well. Currently I am on a bit of a sugar overload, which makes me really glad I had grabbed an extra piece of the pita bread. It made for the perfect snack to balance out the sugar.
