Here at Happy Tart we believe that gluten free and delicious belong in the same category. We have lovingly transformed Classic French Pastries into gluten free versions.

We bought cupcakes. They are very good for gluten free cupcakes, but not for regular cupcakes. There was also something weird about the icing--it got really stiff for some reason and had a slightly strange aftertaste. It was good but not great. I'm guessing it was lactose-free icing. Anyway, 5-stars if you're gluten and lactose intolerant; 3-star if you can guzzle gluten and lactose.

Dear Tim, thanks for taking the time to write a review. Our icing is made with 100% butter - which like a stick of butter - is hard at refrigerator temperature. We recommend that you allow the cupcakes time to warm up before eating.

I ordered a pumpkin and an apple pie for Thanksgiving from the happy tart. They were absolutely the best gluten free pies I have ever eaten! I live in the southern part of North Carolina, and drove through Alexandria Va. To get these pies!

Went here for the first time today and am happy to say I will be returning! Everything I have tried is delicious and I think they had a great selection. Service was friendly and helpful.

We had our wedding cake and pastry bar done and I can't even begin to explain how tasty and beautiful everything was! Our guests are still asking us to bring them pastries whenever we visit them. Their food is delicious every single time we go! The best gluten free food around.

We ordered a birthday cake but it was not ready on the date as agreed.. Very big disappointment ! It would be for my husband's birthday and now I am in very bad situation for his day because there is no cake and I chose here to order looking at the good reviews.. Taking order and payment and not saying cake-maker to make the cake is not good for a business and people's life.. Apologize really doesn't help when you promise something and don't do.. Be careful about your orders.. Not recommended..

As others have mentioned Happy Tart sits back off the main road and is hard to see unless your know where to look. The inside is small,but there is a decent selections of goodies to choose from. The brownies were good,the almond joy macaroons were good,the mixed berry tarts were just so so. I would stop in again if in the area and grab some more brownies.
