It might look like an average bakery, but Goldenrod is far from it.

        They offer all the goodies you'd expect to find in a bakery from cookies to cakes to cinnamon rolls, but they come with a twist- most of their items are gluten free, dairy free, and vegan.

        "It's really hard when you have a food restriction and you go out and you just don't feel normal and like everybody else. It's really great to have a place where people can come in and chose from anything," said owner Angela Garbecz

        Garbecz Knows how difficult it can be to find sweet treats with food restrictions because she's dairy free.

        Goldenrod Bakery started as a blog and a way for Garbacz to share her dairy free creations with others.

        It soon blossomed into a full grown business as people started requesting more allergy friendly items.

        "Most people are just so excited especially when they come for the first time because they haven't had a donut for a decade or since they were two," Garbecz said.

        While many people are able to enjoy baked goods again, many of Goldenrod's customers do not have food allergies; they simply come because the treats are delicious.

        For Garbecz, giving people with allergies another chance to enjoy some of their favorite treats is the sweetest treat of them all, "Some people cry, some people are like wow this cake actually tastes like cake and that to us is so rewarding and fulfilling to know that we are actually making a difference for people."
