Can you give an address? Is it by the Braddock Rd Metro station?

The address says 2307A Mt. Vernon Avenue. I haven't been there yet, and I don't know Alexandria so I don't know about the metro. But I'm sure someone at the bakery could tell you if you called. Well worth the trip, since as far as I know there isn't an entirely gluten free bakery around here. Not within easy reach of me anyway. :)

Thanks for the recommendation! Whenever I go to Del Ray, I go to the Homemade Pizza Company. It will be nice to stop by the bakery on the way home to pick up some desserts.

I'm moving back to Alexandria at the end of July -- I cannot wait to visit this place. I've only heard good things about it!

Here's the web page with location and hours (closed Mondays & I think they are open later hours during the summer):

They are a ways up from the Braddock Metro. I'm thinking it will be perfect to combine a trip to MOMs and this place!

I visited the Happy Tart the same day of my last post. I guess you could say I was desperate for a cupcake! I combined this trip with a visit to the Homemade Pizza Company, and I was able to park in the lot behind the pizza place. The Happy Tart owner was very nice! I asked if they used any chickpea or garbanzo bean flour (which I can't stand) in the items, and she said that they don't. Yay! I got 2 cupcakes - a salted caramel and a s'mores. Both were delicious. I wanted to go back today, but they close at 4 so I'm out of luck. Definitely a keeper! Mt. Vernon Avenue seems to have a lot of foot traffic, so I have the bakery can stick around.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........

      I think the company knows what the ingredients are better than us.  If you mean Amaretto, I have had it.  
    • Gluten free before biopsy???
      My doctor required me to continue eating gluten before the endoscopy for biopsy. She did say I could let up "a little" to ease some of the terrible pain I was having, but wanted me to eat gluten-containing foods every day until the biopsy. As it turned out, they were able to get me in quickly, so it was really only a few days for me. Both bloodwork and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and now I am happily gluten-free! It has been a challenge, but having a gluten-free kitchen, checking labels on foods and being super-careful when going out has worked wonders. I am not 100% recovered yet, but getting energy back a bit at a time as my nutrition status improves. We don't eat out much - mostly at vegan places that declare they are gluten-free (although I still eat chicken, eggs, milk, and beef sometimes at home). One day, I'll go somewhere else - but not without checking first! Best of luck to you. I think it important to always double-check with the doctor when there are any questions at all. My doctor welcomes questions and I hope yours will too.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for posting I was just looking at this a short time ago. Something I found interesting was the last line of the article- " The psychosis that the woman experienced was an extreme condition and very unique, Fasano said. " While not common I am not sure that it is that unique.  There is a fair amount of research that has been done on the effects of gluten on the brains and nervous systems of celiacs.  Doing a search with the words neurological and celiac at places like Lancet, PubMed and the NIH can bring up some really interesting studies. Thankfully this impact is slowly becoming more common knowledge in the medical circles. Many of us have experienced in our families or first hand the way that the antibodies can impact our mood and thinking. It does seem miraculous when the clouds finally lift. I wish more doctors would test for celiac before pulling out the prescription pad, especially with kids.
    • Desperately Seeking DISARONNO!
      If you are referring to Amaretto Disaronno, then I can tell you that I have had it a couple of times since being diagnosed in 2005 and never had a problem with it. I am very sensitive too and react strongly to cc.  I do not drink much variety in the way of alcohol but red wine and this seem to be perfectly fine!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
