Best place to be a gluten-free fatty: Pushkin’s Bakery
Best of Sacramento 2013 writer’s pick
Wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free—people attempt to eat healthy and mindful of allergies, but there just aren't many tasty options out there. Enter Pushkin's Bakery: This spot proves that anti-allergy baked goods can taste amazing. Co-owners Danny and Olga Turner have opened Pushkin's as Sacramento's first wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free bakery, offering vegan items, as well. The “Awesomes”—tiny lemon poppy seed pound cakes with lemon glaze—are awesomely light and fluffy, packed with tart lemon goodness. The chocolate-chip s'more sandwich is all buttery chocolate-chip cookie with a gooey marshmallow middle. Don't forget some almond milk to wash it all down. 1820 29th Street, (916) 376-7752, www.pushkinsbakery.com.
