Sweet Harmony Cafe and Bakery
If there was an award for the “Friendliest” bakery, this place would definitely win. Located on the main drag in Middletown, they happily accommodate gluten-free diners with their homemade gluten-free breads, rolls, crepes(sweet and savory), muffins, cookies, cupcakes, cakes, biscotti and more. The owner seems to delight in special orders, and really knows her gluten-free baking.
The place is set up like a coffee shop, where you order and then sit down in their sizable and comfy dining area, with some fun high top tables at the window. On the day we visited, there were folks having coffee, people eating lunch, to-go orders being picked up, and baked goods flying out the door. The owner, gluten sensitive herself, is quick to point out that they do use wheat flour in the kitchen.
They always have gluten-free options on hand, but they rotate, so call first for today’s options. There are always GF biscotti on the counter, though, and they just might be the best we’ve had – not too sweet, with just the right amount of crunch.(try the chocolate mocha one – you can thank us later). Sweet Harmony can be found at a few local farmer’s markets, and we hope that they’ll join us for our 2018 expo. They also regularly host dessert events – check their Facebook page for details – we’ll see you there!
