The best way to describe this bread is that it looks like a little doughball, about the size of a golf ball.
We tried 6 delicious flavors from jalapeno, to chocolate, to greek with feta cheese and olives. It was tough to pick a favorite... so we may have to go back for more sun dried tomato flavored or one of Jorge's latest creations.
I also indulged in a cranberry muffin. OH my goodness, this was the BEST gluten-free muffin I have ever tasted in my life! I savored every moment and Ernie could only sneak in for a tiny bite.
I can't wait to try the new empanadas stuffed with grass-fed beef, cheddar cheese and sauteed onions!!!
All in all, Cassava is definitely a place to try for some gluten-free specialty items. I'm not sure I would call it a bakery because they don't have the traditional breads, bagels, cookies, pasteries, etc. that would qualify it as a bakery. The inside also has a look and feel like a small cafe with their wireless internet and several college students gathering around their laptops.
Cassava stashould position the place as a cafe rather than a bakery and offer more menu items that are hearty enough for lunch or dinner. That way, the right target audience stops in rather than someone looking for a crusty baguette.
