• Flying Apron Bakery

    June 22, 2009

    This morning, Mal and I woke up bright and early to explore Fremont and grab a light breakfast. We have lunch plans with his sister and his parents later today, so we didn’t want to fill up with a big meal. 

    On our walk through Fremont, we found a huge statue of Lenin. Being the history dork buff that he is, Mal, of course, wanted a photo taken with him.

    A number of readers suggested that I check out the Flying Apron Bakery, so I was psyched when we stumbled upon it. The Flying Apron is a wheat-free, gluten-free, and vegan bakery.

    The Flying Apron Bakery provides vegan, gluten-free, and wheat -free morning pastries, cakes, cookies, pies, breads, and more. Their goodies are made with the finest organic ingredients, whole grain wheat-free flours, and organic non hydrogenated oils. Many of their products are alternatively sweetened as well.

    The Flying Apron Bakery smelled AMAZING when we walked inside. I think they were baking some sort of cinnamon treat. Holy yum!

    It took me awhile to decide what I wanted to eat– everything looked so good! I finally decided on a carrot muffin. I loved that the sign listed all of the muffin’s ingredients; I knew exactly what I was getting. The muffin was excellent– soft, moist, and full of flavor.

    The atmosphere inside the Flying Apron Bakery was cozy and relaxing. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

    That’s definitely the muffin I would’ve chosen. It sounds like it must have been great. That’s awesome they post the ingredients. I usually only have homemade muffins simply because of hearsay about store bought, but clearly those are a good and tasty choice.

    Awesome picture of Mal with Lenin! He usually ha s a scarf in the winter time, though I’d surprised he wasn’t still decorated for Solstice this year!

    That bakery looks so cute! I love it when places post the ingredient list, Whole Foods is usually good about doing that.

    I wish all bakeries – well all restaurants actually – would post ingredients! That one of the reasons I prefer to eat at home. I know exactly what I’m getting!

    Hi Tina! We met at the Solstice Parade in Fremont this weekend! Being gluten-free, I am also a huge fan of the Flying Apron, as well as Cafe Ladro and Norm’s. Gotta love any restaurants that allows you to bring your dog! Glad you enjoyed your time in Seattle!

    Ah! Flying Apron is one of my favorite bakeries! I love how they use natural alternative sweeteners in their baking.I think the last time I was there I had to try 3 of their baked goods!

    The Flying Apron looks awesome. I need a place like that near my house. You never see a bakery that caters to those kinds of dietary restrictions.

    Yay for the Seattle trip! That’s where I’m from. We now live about 2.5 hours West of Seattle in Port Angeles. When I went to school at UofW in Seattle we would go to the University District Flying apron bakery all the time! Their stuff is amazing! You may want to stock up on their vegan macaroons before heading home! Have a fun time in Fremont…it’s so fun there.

    Looks great! I love that they focus on wheat-free, gluten-free items since it’s so hard to find good baked goods like that. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    So jealous that there is a gluten-free bakery there! Sadly, we have nothing like that here in Indiana.
