A visit to Bam Bam Bakery in Portland, Maine always puts a smile on my daughter's face. This fun photo reflects the City of Portland down by the waterfront where Bam Bam Bakery invites you into their space. The smell of fresh baked gluten-free goodies lures you through their tall doors, past several tables, and a cushioned window seat and sofa area that reminds me of the 1980s TV show Friends. The hustle bustle of the open kitchen gives confidence that the products are going to be fresh.
Displayed behind the counter is a large assortment of tempting treats like whoopie pies (chocolate and blueberry), cupcakes and cookies in many flavors, coffee cake, cinnamon buns, cakes, pies and breads. They also offer many items that are dairy-free, vegan, soy-free, and nut-free. This is a great place for lunch with options of pizza, soups, shepherds pie and daily specials. Plan an easy night and take supper home!
One of our family's favorite Bam Bam treats is their coconut bread. My mom slices this into squares and serves fresh strawberries on top with dairy-free whipped cream. This is our new delicious Strawberry Shortcake!
The very day my daughter was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity three years ago, my mom rushed down to Bam Bam Bakery before they closed and selected whoopie pies, cookies, and bars that she then shipped to us all the way across the country...Maine to California. We were thrilled to open a care package a few days later filled with our Bam Bam treats. This was a tasty introduction into our new gluten-free lifestyle.
Each time we travel to Portland, Maine, Bam Bam is on our list of places to go. Thank you Bam Bam Bakery for another great visit!
