Lilac Patisserie



gluten free sweets Santa Barbara

Lilac Patisserie is a gluten-free bakery and café. Yes, that’s right, everything is 100% gluten-free.  

Gluten-free meals are served until 4 pm daily. You will find the daily special for lunch on the website. If you bring your furry loved one, you can find tables outside in the front and the back.

Lilac serves my favorite gluten-free grilled cheese sandwich. I add bacon and remove the tomato. It’s addicting. It’s embarrassing to admit, but I have driven almost two hours for the grilled cheese. And, I have a kitchen.

Lilac will even ship gluten-free bread loaves and rolls to your home. Do you need gluten-free and dairyfree rolls for a party? Just order the rustic white rolls or the seven-grain rolls. You will have three dozen rolls at your doorstep for your next event in a snap.

Lilac offers 22 different types of gluten free cakes for your perfect after dinner slice or wedding cake. And, they are super affordable. I had the chocolate sea salt caramel cake for my birthday, and it was exceptional. I ate it for days….

Chocolate Maya

Chocolate Maya offers a tasting of fine chocolates any time of the day. They offer a handful of gluten-free treats and a few dairy and gluten free.

Maya is one of my favorite places to get dairy-free bars. You can just eat them, or you can make homemade dairy-free chocolate milk with the bars.

If you love hot chocolate, then this shop should be the next item on your bucket list. It’s thick and creamy and pure heaven for a chocolate lover. I recommend sharing a mug with a loved one.

Chocolats du CaliBressan



gluten free sweets Santa Barbara

Chocolats du CaliBressan has seen my face more times than I want to admit. I used to drive to Santa Barbara just for these chocolates. When I woke up and realized most businesses ship products, I stopped driving almost 2 hours.

Many of the chocolates are gluten free and vegan. I just love the variations of flavor. If you love caramels, then you are in for a special gluten-free treat.

Check these out!

If you need party favors for an event or a special birthday present, Chocolats du CaliBressan offers a variety of options. If you still aren’t tempted, they offer custom and personalized gifts. Imagine your initials or favorite quote on fine chocolate for your wedding.

Pierre Lafond Market and Deli

This market truly reinforces wanderers. It’s a great market for a quick meal and a few treats. But, if you wander to the back of the market, you will find a clear case of Chocolats Le CaliBressan.

Woohaa. The same chocolate in Chocolats du CaliBressan in Santa Barbara. If you head home and find your box empty, you can stop in Montecito, and but another box, or two.
