Infinitea Tea Room and Gluten Free Bakery

Today I had the chance to stop by a new gluten free bakery and tea room just around the corner from my house. The tea room, Infinitea, is part of a larger natural health store and clinical practice, all under the banner Body and Mind.  I stopped in today because I received a flyer in the mail about the gluten free items available in the tea room.

The store is located near the back of a strip mall, making it a little difficult to see from the street, but the tea room is spacious and clean and is attached to a small health food store, stocked almost entirely with gluten free foods.   

Tea Room:  The tea room offers loose leaf tea for purchase, as well as an assortment of tea pots, portable cups, and other accessories.  The baker is in during the week only, and bakes fresh gluten free muffins, cookies, scones and other treats.  The bakery also offers gluten free meal options, such as a GF chicken sandwich with goat cheese.  They only serve lunch, so I'll have to return on a week day to try it out.

Store:  The store was packed with many of the most popular gluten free brands, at competitive prices.  The selection of Bob's Red Mill had mixes that I haven't been able to find at any other store.  The frozen section had a great selection of frozen breads and baked goods, as well as frozen GF entrĂ©es at reasonable prices.

The tea room and store are not open most evenings, which can be a bit of an inconvenience, but I'm hoping that as they get established they will increase their hours.  The clerk was knowledgeable and polite, and the selection was quite good.  The website focuses mostly on the medical practice and health products available for order online, but does provide some information about the tea room.  A link to a separate website for the tea room is under construction.

Definitely a place I will go back to, especially if I want to take my son somewhere close by to have a quick lunch or a fresh baked treat!
