MD, Gaithersburg – Sunflower Bakery & Cafe


Sunflower Bakery is a certified kosher pareve facility, which means that everything they make is dairy-free! This includes all types of hamentashen, cookies, brownies, bars, pies, muffins, quick breads, cupcakes, cakes (custom, crumb, etc), and more. Their website also states that they are a peanut-free facility (they do use tree nuts, but note which are made without nuts) and they have some gluten-free offerings (denoted on the menu) as well as some vegan / egg-free goodies (also denoted on their menu).

But beyond the amazing baked goods, Sunflower Bakery is on a mission. They are a non-profit enterprise that combines skills training with actual work experience to prepare individuals with developmental or other cognitive disabilities for employment in baking and related industries. They work alongside adult volunteers and staff, who do not have disabilities, to better simulate a typical bakery experience.
