Gluten-Free Desserts in Santa Cruz

Dolphin spotting in Santa Cruz

The weather in my not-so-new hometown Santa Cruz, California has been absolutely beautiful lately. Sunny skies, cool ocean breezes, and dolphins sightings from the beach! I’ve been running by the ocean and riding my bike as much as possible. It’s been hard to stay inside and work over the past few weeks especially since I am trying to make this a summer of saying “YES” to new experiences.

Besides being a local, Santa Cruz is a great summer tourist destination for those in the San Francisco Bay area and beyond. Tourists flock to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, the beaches, and the redwood forests all found within Santa Cruz County. There really is so much going on each week that you will never go bored in Santa Cruz.

The most popular question I get through my Santa Cruz Celiac Facebook group is where to eat which is why I am especially excited about my first post on the local website This list is only desserts, but let’s be honest… that is definitely one of the most important food groups. 🙂  Stay tuned for future articles about where to get gluten-free sandwiches, burgers, salads, and more.
