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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Brian

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!

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.

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.

Spectacular baked goods that also happen to be allergy friendly. Everyone will love the breakfast, lunch, dessert, and baked goods here, regardless of whether they suffer from food allergies. Those that do have to avoid certain ingredients will find a large selection of options and clear marking of what they can and cannot have

Delicious gluten free items. We don't have allergies or celiac but enjoyed eating here anyway when we came to check it out for a relative. They don't cook any wheat in the place so seems safe for the most sensitive people. They also do some egg free items and I think use no nuts there. I enjoyed their omlette and a tuna melt. Kids might find the kid's meatball a little too herb seasoned or want some marinara with it, but it was yummy.

It is so refreshing to go to eat and know that you can have anything on the menu while following a gluten free diet. This place is also kid friendly.

Best gluten free baked goods around! They are also able to accommodate lots of other allergies. Fantastic breakfast and lunch options as well. I would suggest the brookie (combination of a cookie and brownie) if it is available - it is delicious! Also offers great allergy friendly cakes that can even be made egg and dairy free if needed.

Food here is absolutely outstanding! I have celiac and as such gluten is like death to me. We actually live in California but when I travel to Boston, this is my first stop. Most of the time you can tell the difference between what is gluten free and what isn’t. By far this is the best allergy free food I’ve ever had. Not only can you get gluten free, you can get dairy, egg, nut and soy free as well. Make sure to check it out. Worth the drive. Bread is to die for!

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