Looking for gluten-free bakeries in Los Angeles

Ok, I went to Breakaway Bakery today to check it out. First of all, it's really cute. I really enjoyed being there. They have an incredible selection. They have all these beautiful cookies. I bought a few different kinds to have with a cup of tea while I was there and they were all delicious! I took a raspberry/crumble bar, brownie, snickerdoodle and coffee cake muffin with me to eat later. . . could't help myself, nibbled at each of them - couldn't tell they were gluten-free - I'm soooo happy!

Sugar...I wasn't really looking too closely, but yes that does concern me. So, I took a closer look, did a little research, and compared Breakaway's sugar content to others (both gluten-free and wheat-based) and found they actually come in at the low end. I still need to taste their baked goods. . . have to wait till Wednesday (sigh)..

I went on Breakaway's website, breakawaybakery.com, and it looks great. I'm going to go there on Wednesday (they're closed Mondays and Tuesdays) and check it out. They list their ingredients and they look good (no soy or other stuff I can't or don't like to eat). I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for the suggestion to check out Yelp. I went to Yelp and found Sensitive Baker but also found another very interesting bakery called Breakaway Bakery on Pico Blvd., closer to my home. Looks like these two are the only true gluten-free bakeries in LA. I think I'll give Breakaway a try since it's organic too.

Looking for gluten-free bakeries in Los Angeles

I was recently diagnosed as gluten intolerant and would like to know about the gluten-free bakeries in Los Angeles. The posts on gluten-free bakeries are from awhile ago and I was wondering if there is anything new out there. I like to eat healthy and most of the baked goods I can buy at the market are full of starch and high in calories. I'd appreciate your recommendations.
