Tu-Lu's Gluten-Free Bakery
Posted by dan on 03/20/2013
The counter staff makes or breaks this place. Sometimes they're so rude and pushy that you'd think you'd walked uninvited in their home. If you walk in at 9:58, they'll tell you they're closed. Mediocre baking, and really high prices. The only reason to stop here is if you absolutely have to be gluten free - otherwise, go to a real bakery. The one exception is their coffee cake, which is exceptional. Otherwise, head downtown to Babycakes for your gluten free baked goods.

Attention Celiac Brides or Grooms! My husband and I got married on June 2, and I'm proud to say that Tu-Lu's provided us with a gorgeous, decadent gluten-free wedding cake. It was vanilla with buttercream frosting, and we were blown away by how delicious our very first bite was. We actually rushed back to our table as everyone was dancing so we could devour the slices that were left at our place settings. The staff was great, especially Jennifer Wells, who answered all of our questions leading up to the big day, and the cake designer gave us exactly the classic, elegant look we had requested. We have a few more slices in our freezer, which we plan to eat on our one year anniversary. We can't wait!

I have tried a number of different baked goods (all yummy) from Tulu's, but I tasted the Mallomar today. It is unbelievably wonderful! The baker told me they make their own marshmallows and cookies, which are then assembled and covered in chocolate. A real winner! I'm trying to decide whether to go back tonight to get another one . . .

incredibly rich, fresh and tasty baked goods. truly amazing cupcakes, cookies and so many other GF choices. everything's clearly made with quality ingredients. The owner and staff are so nice and really helpful in explaining ingredients. A must visit for anyone that's GF

I have celiac disease and this place makes me forget every time I've had to forgo dessert. I make an effort to try the gfree options all around NYC and this is by far the best. Other bakeries' gfree options tend to taste musty and "off", but Tu-Lu's somehow manages to taste not only normal but absolutely delicious. Go often since some menu items change- I went a couple of weeks ago and had chocolate chip cake for the first time since I was diagnosed, not to mentioned the best chocolate chip cake I've ever had (with or without gluten). I am so grateful for this place!

I picked up an all chocolate GF birthday cake for my son when he was visiting NYC a little more than a week ago. It was a huge success on every level. When he returned to his home in Nova Scotia he emailed this "That’d be great if you’d tell Tu-Lu’s that your son in Canada hopes they’ll expand and open a store up North :) For celiacs, we have “Holy Grail” moments when we find foods that are totally indistinguishable from their gluten counterparts—most GF foods have an inferior taste and/or texture. This was one of those moments."
