I have personally been to this gluten free bakery/cafe and have also sent friends and family there. Twist Bakery and Cafe is completely gluten free and fairly allergy friendly. I believe they have perfected their labeling since I was there last. I was able to get a Reuben with Daiya cheese, which was good. I did not have to worry about getting sick. The cupcakes are great, and the prices were reasonable, too. They do not use egg in their baked goods.

Gluten Free Surprise in Millis, Massachusetts,

A hidden treasure in an unlikely place, this bakery and cafe is in a strip mall in the small town of Millis. They don't overtly advertise as gluten-free, but everything here is gluten and peanut free. In fact, they are extremely allergen aware and mostly dairy free as well. All foods are coded to let customers know what ingredients they contain.
Sandwiches are served on house made amazing rolls that actually held together! Served alongside your choice of coleslaw, hearty bean salad or chips & a pickle, they are deliciously satisfying.
The glass bakery case is filled with beautiful pastries, cookies & cupcakes. Lemon squares are tangy yet sweet and the chocolate chip cookies literally melt in your mouth.
You should visit this gem-gluten-free or not!

100% Gluten Free Bakery in Millis, Massachusetts,

If ever there were to be a gluten-free heaven, I just quietly slipped away from life on earth and made my way there! In fact, what I actually just experienced is a reality … a wonderfully sweet and satisfying reality where I was able to meet a friend for morning coffee and didn’t have to smuggle in a gluten-free breakfast bar in my purse. Gluten-free heaven has a name. Twist Bakery & Caf, which opened this past December in Millis, Massachusetts, was recommended by a neighbor whose daughter has Celiac Disease. Sure I expected to see a few gluten-free offerings … the usual wrapped muffin or chocolate chip cookie, located on top of the case filled with a lovely assortment of gluten-filled scones, muffins, pies and cakes, all of which are, alas, off-limits to me. Indeed, Twist had several cases, and yes they were overflowing with colorfully frosted cupcakes, scones, muffins, brownies, macaroons, lemon squares, and even bread pudding. But the “twist” – the difference – is that all of them are free of gluten and other common food allergens. Yes, you could say Twist is my gluten-free heaven. Twist’s food is delicious. My breakfast companion, who doesn’t eat gluten-free, enjoyed everything she ordered. I had a delicious breakfast sandwich on a roll, with egg, melted cheese and bacon, and since we lingered over coffee I later enjoyed a delish orange and ginger muffin. In addition to the artfully prepared bakery items, Twist’s menu offers breakfast items of oatmeal, egg sandwiches, and fresh fruit, and for lunch/dinner there is a variety of sandwiches, salads and freshly made soups. Also available are platters containing a variety of meat, chicken, and roasted veggie dishes, and even chicken pot pie! All of Twist’s products are prepared daily on site and you can tell the ingredients are fresh. Also for sale are loaves of homemade gluten-free bread ($11.95) and rolls (plain and poppy seed) – the same bread/rolls used for the sandwiches. The lunch and dinner items change daily and may include such savory dishes as Chicken with lemon, garlic and thyme, Chicken fried rice, Risotto cakes, Lasagna, Tourtiere, Chicken parmesan, Coconut-Mango chicken, to name a few. I saw several people walking away with large take-away bags. Twist offers a nice variety of teas and the coffee station stocked several spices and even lavender sugar for added flavor and sweetening. Twist’s interior is bright and cheery with its verde wall, and large chalk-drawn wall art. In addition to the casual dining area, there are a few comfy leather chairs in the front area just beckoning for you to sit down with a cup of coffee or tea, and that well deserved gluten-free scone! I noticed the lack of window signage touting Twist's allergen-free offerings, so I asked the owner, Kathryn Ernst, of the neighboring town of Holliston, why she isn’t advertising this in bold letters. Ernst explained her desire is for Twist to appeal to everyone, not just those with special dietary needs. The fact that the food does not contain gluten, or a variety of other food allergens, should be “irrelevant”, according to Ernst, who has been gluten free for five years, and has other food allergies. She believes Twist’s allergy-friendliness will spread among the gluten, dairy, and peanut-free community. I suspect this is true, and it will happen fast! Kathryn has witnessed a few people break down in tears upon seeing what allergen-free delights were available to them (no doubt a few were newly diagnosed Celiacs!). Of the approximately 22 Twist employees, I met at least one with Celiac. Ernst says she likes to hire individuals who understand the nuts and bolts of allergen-free food preparation and living. On my way out, I thanked Kathryn for offering me something different … an opportunity to walk into a caf/bakery where 100% of the items were available to me. Very unusual for a Celiac, and yes, very much appreciated. New York City may have Tu-Lu’s gluten-free bakery, and Paris has Helmut Newcake, but now Metrowest/Millis has the “deliciously different” Twist Bakery & Caf located at 30 Milliston Road, Millis, MA 02054 (off Route 109, in the plaza near Roche Brothers). If you live in Boston, it is definitely worth the 19 mile drive out to Millis!
