I visited Mariposa, an artisan-crafted gluten free bakery, several times during my stay in San Francisco.  Their gluten free baked goods were absolutely delicious!  Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to visit their main location in Oakland but their location at the San Francisco Ferry Building stocked quite a lot of options!

Mariposa sells an assortment of gluten free biscotti, brownies, cookies, squares, coffeecake, cupcakes, crostini, bagels, pizza crusts, cinnamon rolls and breads!  I was able to try their Chocolate Chip Cookies, their Penguino cupcakes (chocolate on the outside, vanilla cream on the inside), their Sour Cream Coffee Cake and their Cinnamon Rolls!  In addition to being gluten free, many of their items are dairy free and/or vegan.

My favorite item was the cinnamon roll!  It was out-of-this-world delicious!  In fact, I bought several so that I could enjoy one every morning with my Starbucks coffee while in San Francisco.

For those of you who aren't in San Francisco, you can order many of their items online by visiting their website at:

Their current locations include:
