After one week in Florida, west coast, I gave up on even asking if a local cafe has gluten free options for desserts. I was pleasantly surprised with this place. They have clearly designated gluten free pastries, and all of them were very delicious. As a matter of fact, I think this was the best Tiramisu in my life. Besides several mini-cakes they have almond cookies, and some nice gluten-free salads.

The only reason for assigning 4 palms instead of 5 is because they are not a dedicated gluten-free facility. However, taste-wise and gluten-free cleanliness (no problems after eating here) they are worth of five palms.

We stumbled upon this amazing place purely by chance, and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the display of beautiful cakes, tarts, and other treats. The guy at the counter laughed when my son tentatively asked him which of the cakes are actually gluten free. He spread his arms wide, and replied: "Everything you see is gluten free!". I must admit that we went a little overboard when we started ordering everything in sight. An elderly couple at the next table gently smiled at my son's excitement when all the treats were finally delivered to our table. We tried several different tarts, Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake, Chocolate Decadence Cake, Coconut Cream Cake and Tiramisu. Everything was very good with unsurpassed freshness. They bake everything right there, and you can even observe how they decorate their cakes.
Pretty soon we realized there is no chance we are going to finish even half of what we ordered, so we left the cafe with a bag filled with boxes and boxes of leftovers that kept bringing us joy for the next two days.
I must mention that they also have "normal" food, such as salads, sandwiches, quiche and soup. We have not tried any of those items, but they looked pretty good on the tables surrounding us.
