I worked with Cathleen via email to create my mom's first birthday cake since discovering her gluten intolerance. I described some flavors I know my mom likes (chocolate, coconut and almond) and she absolutely knocked it out of the park. My mom said it was the best cake she's ever had in her entire life. If you have any gluten free needs, you MUST try Gluten Free by the Sea!

I was looking for a cake on short notice for a friend with specific allergies and dietary restrictions.I planned on getting muffins/brownies/bars because of my last minute planning. Cathleen was working on a cake already and at the last second, changed the icing to accommodate me.Such excellent service. Very clean kitchen and lobby. Highly recommend.

Very few businesses truly have the customer's best interests at heart, but that is exactly what you will find at Gluten Free by the Sea: an incredible experience with the customer as it's focal point. You will find a variety of hand crafted gluten free bakery items available for immediate purchase, as well as many more bake to order items available. Highly recommend that you stop by - they give great restaurant reviews as well!

My mom purchased a cake over the phone from Cathy for my 50th birthday. She lives in SC and found Gluten Free By the Sea randomly online. Cathy was incredibly helpful and suggest a Chai Tea cake. OMG!!! The cake is delicious!!! My mom ordered a huge sheet cake and my first thought was, Great, we're going to have left over cake forever. But 2 days later and there is barely a sliver left! You absolutely cannot tell - taste or texture wise - that this is gluten free. I'll be ordering cakes from Cathy for any and every occasion possible!

SO DELICIOUS!! We ordered a chocolate cake with no nuts, gluten or dairy. It has always been challenging to find a Celiac friendly baker that makes tasty treats. Were all blown away by how amazing the flavor was! Big hit! I would recommend Gluten Free By The Sea to anybody.Cathleen is a pleasure to work with too. She is extremely personable and really knows her stuff!

What a wonderful, locally owned bakery! A great owner, and even better product. You can't go wrong with this business. From custom-made orders to Farmers market favorites, my family has never been disappointed!

Cathleen is incredibly welcome and so pleasant to work with! We showed up on a whim as we had to have GF treats! Cathleen worked with us and told us all about her offerings as we had never been there. Needless to say we'll be back as we vacation yearly in Topsail!

Review №19

Purchased their crumb cake at Wrightsville Beach Farmer Market. It was everything you'd hope from crumb cake - soft, sweet, full of flavor, slightly firmer on top. Couldn't tell it was gluten free. I've had my fair share of crumb cake in my life and this one was top-tier.

Great place to get gluten free breads, rolls and sweet treats in the Wilmington area. The prices are also very reasonable for gluten free items.The owner, Cathy Adkins, is a professional pastry chef who was diagnosed with Celiacs a few years back and everything is gluten free. You could see a very clean, large professional kitchen in the back.We dropped by to pick up some treats for my 16YO daughter who has Celiacs. Cathy explained the textures and flavors of each of her baked goods so we could choose ones that were a good match for our daughter.We chose the large pumpkin muffins, individual cheese cake and crumb cake. Our picky daughter loved all of them, but the top choice for her were the pumpkin muffins.I was a little confused by the Open 24 hours shown in Goole Maps, since it is a one person business. She commented she is often open at odd hours because it is hard for customers to come by during normal business hours. We called first since it was after 5PM Sunday. She said she was planning on leaving in 15 minutes, but she would stay open until we came by. We are glad we went and we will be going back again.
