This is a useful one for locals or visitors to Poole or Bournemouth who are happy to pre-order gluten free baked quiches or sweet stuff.
I was excited about going to a cafe that exclusively did gluten free for lunch (had read about it on the website of Sarah the gluten free blogger who used to live here) but sadly the owner of Pure Bake Cakes had retired and it was now part of Pandora’s Bakery who are a normal bakery. There is nothing available that is gluten free in the shop as GF goods have to be pre-ordered but now we know :-).
The journey over was not entirely fruitless because they managed to find a tiny GF white loaf at bottom of their freezer that had been there a long time and sold it to us for a £1. On walking to the shop we had found a £1 coin so that was free bread! The loaf provided some nice brioche like toast for us and was quite okay.
Bakery goods that can be made gluten free by pre-order:
- Various Quiches
- Cookies including Viennese Fingers
- Cakes & Muffins e.g. vanilla, coffee, chocolate, carrot, coconut, fruit etc
The very friendly and helpful owner told us she knew Sandwich Etc in Poole High Street and John Browns Garden Centre in Three Legged Cross do GF options too.

Anyone tried them before for cakes? We avoid refined sugar so won’t be testing them ourselves but would like to how their gluten free cakes rate.
