Cole's Bakery

Cole's is a local Spokane bakery and cafe that offers sweets and food for gluten free and dairy free customers.

Cole’s Bakery and Cafe is the perfect place for all your dietary needs. Not only does the bakery have an inviting atmosphere, Cole’s has a large variety of dairy-free, vegan and keto options and everything is made completely gluten and peanut-free. 

Cole’s menu has something for everyone, from vegan mac and cheese to fried buffalo cauliflower. The cauliflowers are so crunchy and juicy; you could almost mistake them for a chicken wing. They are coated in egg before they’re fried, so take caution if you have dietary restrictions. Nevertheless, these are a must try. The fried cauliflower also comes in teriyaki and BBQ flavors.

For a meat and cheese lover, look no further than the nacho selection. Cole’s BBQ pork nachos consist of meat, crunchy chips and a complete coating of cheese. The BBQ pork is sweet without being overpowering, topped with a moderate amount of onions.

Cole’s doesn’t skimp on its bakery, offering a whole case of keto options. The bakery uses a sugar substitute extracted from a monk fruit which contains no calories and no carbs. Cole’s has a large variety of cupcakes, cookies, scones and many keto options. If you want to order a meal and sit, they also provide a keto section on their menu which contains French toast, sandwiches, pizza and more.

Cole’s lemon bars are too good to pass up, dietary restriction or not — they boast a perfect texture with a fresh lemon taste.

“I don’t usually eat dairy-free things, but I didn’t even notice a difference for any of the desserts I tried,” said Christina Blackbourn, a senior at Gonzaga. “The brownies with sprinkles were my favorite thing since they were basically pure chocolate.”

If you plan on visiting Cole’s, keep in mind that they have a huge selection  and many things to take home such as honey, burgers, ice cream, and keto-friendly bread. The service is also quick and friendly, making the bakery and cafe the perfect place to sit down and have a meal. Cole’s Bakery and Cafe is located at 521 E. Holland Ave. and is open Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
