Island Gluten Free Bakery Home
EXCLUSIVELY GLUTEN-FREE BAKERY IN SARASOTA
We began baking gluten free in 2006 on the island of Siesta Key- at the request of Mrs. Stella Peters, a newly diagnosed Celiac.
Our brand is “Stellar Gluten Free” and was created by us eight years ago, focusing on better nutrition. At that time we were pioneers of gluten free bakeries and one of the first brands to use whole grain flours and no white rice flour! Stellar accurately describes our product and in tribute to Mrs. Stella Peters!
Stellar products are similar to wheat like in texture and taste like your old time favorites. “Stellar Gluten Free” mixes are so versatile that we can make several items vegan as well!
Everything is gluten free and soy free. The majority of our items are dairy-free and casein-free, with vegan options.
Stop in for lunch! We offer sandwiches, subs, and pizza-all on our fresh baked breads!
Lunch served from 10am-3pm
HOW EVERYTHING BEGUN
It all began in October 2005 when my sister Kim and her partner Vickie purchased a small ice cream parlor on the island of Siesta Key in SARASOTA FLORIDA. Kim had a full time job so I offered to help out for a little while (haha!). To help boost sales we started baking with spelt as I felt it was a healthier grain.
In February 2006, Mrs. Stella Peters, who was visiting the Key from the north, came in and said the baked goods smelled lovely but she couldn't have any because she had just found out she has Celiac Disease. She asked if we could make something for her.
Research led to experimenting and then committing to become an EXCLUSIVELY GLUTEN-FREE BAKERY!
