“Nice sandwich, nice atmosphere, nice staff, and an excellent out-of-the-way find”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Many people have told me about this place...gluten free!...but I never went until I pulled out a Chinook Book Coupon and made a special trip. I have a nice sandwich and salad, and a cookie to go ...and I'm very pleased. This is a gluten-free bakery with an actual (busy) bakery in the back

This is an out-of-the-way, off street location, nestled on the border of the now trendy Temescal District of Oakland. Leo's Sound Systems would be the turn off landmark, and Rock Bottom Wineshop is next door (for visitors wanting to buy a bottle of wine in a neighborly and informative environment) There is parking and it seems quite a lot of the locals bike to this location.

Nice local feel and a kind of "best kept secret."

Also, it's clean and open/high ceilings, and the staff is super duper!

“Yes, Virginia -- There Are Delicious Gluten-Free Baked Goods”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

When I make it home to the Bay Area, one of my first stops is to the Mariposa outpost at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. It has any and every imaginable baked good in a gluten-free mode, all of which are delicious.

“Best gluten-free bakery in the Bay Area and California”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Mariposa is everything you dream of in a gluten-free bakery. It is completely gluten-free and their facility is huge, so the wide variety of safe options makes a Celiac feel like they are not missing out on anything! From cinnamon rolls to empanadas to soft pretzels to bear claws to ravioli to sandwiches to croissants to donuts, everything is divine. Their bakery in Oakland is by far the biggest, but they have a very abundant stand in the Ferry Building in downtown San Francisco, and offer some great treats at the Farmer’s Market in Palo Alto. Their products can also be found frozen at some locations (check their website for details)! They sell cute merchandise at their Oakland location too!

“Yay! Pastries that I can have and they are good”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I am always looking for gluten free foods, so when I was on a trip to Oakland, decided to ring my options. Yelp told me about this place in the Ferry Building and decided to check it out. It did not disappoint. I miss my baked goods so badly that I am willing to eat the "cardboard" stuff available in the markets. So happy to get good real baked goods! Bought 2 bags of cookies to hand carry on the plane to enjoy an share later.

“Great Food + Service”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

I was on a mission to find gluten-free AND vegan donuts, and I came up with this business. I was thankful they updated their social media frequently, so it was easy to see pictures of their St. Patty's day V/GF donuts. The donuts were great!
