Last week I shared with you my thoughts on actress Jennifer Esposito’s new gluten free bakery called Jennifer’s Way. Today I wanted to tell you about Tu-Lu’s Gluten Free Bakery. Tu-Lu’s is located about a block away from Jennifer’s Way in the East Village, and it has locations in New York as well as Dallas. It’s your standard cute bakery except that everything is gluten free!
Tu-Lu’s offers a great selection of gluten free cupcakes, muffins, cookies, brownies, and paninis as well as vegan baked goods. They also have a cupcake flavor of the day. I really lucked out because the day I was there the cupcake of the day was chocolate chip! The cake part of the cupcake was similar to a chocolate chip muffin with chocolate icing and a tiny sugar cookie on top. Not only was it excellent, but it was such a treat to eat something that wasn’t just the standard vanilla or chocolate. The regular cupcakes run $3.15 a piece or you can get mini cupcakes starting at 3 for $3.50 if you are interested in trying out different flavors.
I really enjoyed the cupcake and my time at Tu-Lu’s. I wish I had been hungrier so I could’ve tried another gluten free treat, but I will without a doubt be stopping by during my next trip to New York. I think Jennifer’s Way Bakery is a great option if you are looking for off the beaten path gluten free items like bagels, pies, cinnamon rolls, but if you are just in the mood for a good cupcake then I would walk one block over to Tu-Lu’s Gluten Free Bakery where there are more options and they are more affordable.
