Whether you have diet restrictions or just want to get your hands on a flourless sweet treat, the following gluten-free bakeries in Austin will satisfy your sweet tooth. Check them out!
Thanks to some of the brands in this article that offered sample products at no charge to me. All opinions are my own.
1/ Zucchini Kill
Don’t let the name fool you. Not everything in this bakery contains zucchini. However, everything IS certified vegan, as well as soy- and gluten-free.
You can also find these baked and packaged donuts, cupcakes, and breads at Counter Culture, Book People, Buzz Mill, and Machine Head Coffee.
This bakery will even make custom cakes with 72-hour notice. Just send the business an email and let them know what you’d like, and the team will reach out to talk through the details.

2/ Thai Fresh
In addition to high-quality authentic Thai food, gluten-free goodies are also making their way out of the Thai Fresh kitchen under the direction of pastry chef Autumn Roe.
Although Thai Fresh is not a certified gluten-free kitchen, freshly-made goodies–from Thai sticky rice to cookies and French chocolate mousse–are available and made with gluten-free ingredients.
Did I mention many of the baked goods Thai Fresh offers are also vegan? Head on over to indulge!

Pastry chef Jesus Mendoza Jr. abides by a vegan- and gluten-free diet, so you know you’re in good hands at this restaurant/bakery hybrid.
Mr. Natural offers a variety of vegetarian, vegan, ovo, lacto, non-dairy, wheat-free, and gluten-free menu items on its breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert menus. Plus, the Austin biz can bake a custom cake in 20+ gluten-free and vegan flavors.

4/ Wilder Wood Restaurant & Bar
This 100 percent gluten-free restaurant has been serving the Austin area for over 15 years, first as Wildwood Bakehouse, and now as Wilder Wood. In addition to the full food and drink menu, you’ll find a variety of breads, muffins, pastries, and other specialty desserts.
If you’re not looking for dessert (just a meal that tastes like dessert), might I suggest an item on the Sunday brunch menu? You can’t go wrong with the fluffy Belgian waffle, topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.
1300 E. 7th St. – Website
5/ Better Bites Bakery
Get ready for your fridge to be overflowing with Better Bites Bakery’s packaged goodies! These dairy-, soy-, egg-, gluten-, and peanut-free treats taste like pure indulgence.
Founder Leah Lopez started making her Better Bites cupcakes, cake balls, and brownies when her son Gabriel was diagnosed with severe food allergies. Now, you can find her melt-in-your-mouth chocolatey treats–free of the top eight most common allergens–at several grocery stores in Austin.
Now available at Royal Blue Grocery, Whole Foods, Central Market, HEB, and Natural Grocers – Website
