Stopped in for lunch after a business meeting, and was pleasantly surprised. It is not often you find a dedicated gluten-free place, and this one is particularly good. I had hold myself back from the baked goods, which looked delicious, and got a giant piece of lasagna instead. Will go back next time I am in town.

I walk in and see 100's of choices(no joke) and I ask: how do I know which items I can have if I'm gluten free? Staff looks at me and smiles: Everything is gluten free I kinda die cuz this never happens to me...and I go a heaven called Bam Bams Bakery. No joke- Heaven!

While exploring the Old Port area, we came across this place. We did not hesitate to enter as I eat gluten free. What a wide arrange of pastries, bread, pizza and more! We purchased six items including a breakfast bomb, pumpkin cake, and macaroon. Delicious!!!@

Anyone who eats gluten free knows that pastries, cakes, pies and other baked goods can often be too dense, dry or kind of glue-y. Even professional eateries often serve really bad gluten free options. However, Bam Bam Bakery (in a charming old building in the Old Port waterfront area) is magic. You wouldn't know the baked goods in the large... More

They have the most amazing chocolate peanut butter cupcakes I've ever had. Wow. They also had a great peanut butter delight which was not vegan but was ridiculously good. They have gluten free options too.

My wife has celiac disease and this was a treat for her: the whole place gluten-free with even a sign on the door warning people not to bring food in. A range of cupcakes, cookies, French pastries, different types of bread (the honey oatmeal is fantastic), as well as meal options (lasagna and pizza slices when we were there) are... More

Great gluten free place also offers dairy free. Coffee cake was awesome. Sugar cookies are good. Chocolate chip was a little sweet. Would go back again

We traveled to Portland last year and found this wonderful bakery, we made it a destination this trip. SO GOOD, to have a totally Gluten Free haven for my hubby, but the items are so well made you would not know they are GF. The comfortable shop has nice seating, friendly staff and delicious items. We had coffee and bakery... More
