San Francisco
Food Allergy-Friendly Sweets


There's something for everyone in San Francisco. In this free-thinking, food-obsessed city known for mindful eating and fresh ingredients, there has never been a better time to visit with food allergies. Before you jump on a cable car to the Mission or take a ferry across the Bay, be sure to check out our guide to the most allergy-friendly sweets and treats in San Francisco.


Bi-Rite Creamery


No trip to San Francisco is complete without a stop to Bi-Rite. Grab a scoop (or two) of their famously innovative flavors like honey lavender, ginger caramel swirl or vegan coconut strawberry. They have a rotating dairy-free, coconut-based flavor and vegan sorbet, and the staff is more than happy to change gloves, use a fresh scooper and scoop from a fresh bin for anyone with food allergies.

Dandelion Chocolate


This local artisanal chocolate shop is completely vegan and free of milk, egg, gluten and soy. Dandelion makes pastries that contain some nuts, but they take the extra precaution to prepare the baked goods in a separate kitchen from where they make their chocolately creations that are almost too beautiful too eat (almost).

Mariposa Bakery


Located in the iconic Ferry Building, Mariposa Bakery is the ultimate gluten-free find in San Francisco. The shop was started by a Berkeley mom with a sweet tooth who didn't want to compromise her healthy diet. Mariposa bakes all of their treats in a completely dedicated gluten-free and peanut-free facility and is serious about cross contamination with clear labels for allergens

Wholesome Bakery

Wholesome's owner used her own allergies as inspiration to create beautiful baked goods with high-quality, allergen-free ingredients that taste even better than the real thing. The bakery is 100% free of gluten, milk, egg and soy. While they do use nuts in the kitchen, they are hyper-aware of cross contamination and do everything to ensure everyone gets a safe treat.
