Gluten Free Bakery in Toronto

Wild Earth Cafe and Bakery opened in the very historic Toronto Beach neighbourhood in the summer of 2009. Husband and wife team, Brad and Nicole Owens, recognized a real need for a bakery that specialized in providing yummy baked goods for those with dietary restrictions. Brad has had a gluten intolerance for some time and always found it difficult to find places that he could enjoy a good meal or a snack without running the risk of severe abdominal pain. Over the years, Nicole developed a number of recipes ranging from sweets (cookies and squares) to nutritious breads that were 100% gluten-free but also tasted great. Both Nicole and Brad worked got tired of the corporate world and decided to make their dream of owning a gluten-free cafe a reality.

In addition to having a very wide range of gluten-free items, the bakery also offers many Vegan choices as well. Work is currently underway to develop a full line of sugar-free items. The first such item is a gluten-free, vegan and sugar free lemon tart that is made with Agave and Xylitol (a sugar substitute that is 100% natural and is derived from Birch trees). The bakery is also 100% nut-free so those with anaphylactic allergies are safe!

Wild Earth Cafe and bakery is open 7 days a week and is located at 2142 Queen Street East in Toronto. The TTC stops at the door and there is ample street parking. The cafe is very “Mom Friendly” and has change tables and high chairs and is also wheelchair and stroller accessible. Readers of Aunt Jayne’s blog are welcome to try a free cookie simply by mentioning that they are readers of the blog. One per customer please.

  1. I also do my own baking but I intend to check out this bakery the next time I am in Toronto.

  2. Oh that looks marvelous! There are gluten-free restaurants and bakeries in Austin, TX but not here in Georgetown. There are some packaged items at the grocery store but mostly I do my own baking. Rita and I try to help friends with diabetes and weight issues and one with nightshade allergies as well.

  3. Thanks for visiting Kate.
    There are other GF businesses that I have blogged about as well.
    I would love to make a post about your website too. Please send me an e-mail with a short blurb about your site and feel free to ask my readers to visit and comment as well.

  4. Hi Aunt Jayne! Just read this post about gluten-free, nut-free bakery with vegan options! It sounds fantastic and caught my eye as I work for, a UK eating out guide for gluten-free, nut-free and vegan diets – and many more! It’s a new site that we’re just launching and we’d love you (and your readers) to help us out with reviews and new listings for the site. For instance do you know of any similar bakeries in the UK? Do check out the link and let me know what you think. We’re still developing the site, so we know it’s not perfect, and we’re very keen to get feedback, comments and suggestions on how to make it better. Kate
