Got a sweet tooth?  We know what that’s like.  Got a sweet tooth on a gluten free or vegan diet?  That’s where Buttercelli comes in.  Ever the ultimate neighborhood spot, this organic bakery features a dessert menu—with a splash of savory items—that can cater to those seeking vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, or even paleo-friendly confections. 

We’re especially excited about their new holiday menu, because with all that running around during the holidays, who has time to bake?!  Buttercelli can normally accommodate orders a mere day in advance, but Christmas orders need to be placed by Friday, December 20th.  The bakery is also open until noon this Wednesday, November 27th, so you can pick up last minute treats to supplement your Thanksgiving dinner.

If you’ve been wondering where you can get your hands on a mincemeat pie—filled with currants, raisins, and brandy—look no further.  Their pecan pie is a creamy, buttery take on the traditional rendition.  We recommend topping every slice with ice cream. 

A shimmer cookie, a spherical treat ripe with buttercream filling is dusted in a glimmering blue and white sugar, in celebration of Hanukkah.  Discs of chewy ginger spice cookies are made with pieces of candy ginger; a delicate roll of  rugelach is the ultimate Thanksgivukkuh dessert.

Here’s a look at Buttercelli’s full holiday menu, below. 

Because during the holiday craze, you shouldn’t sweat the sweet stuff.
