About GEM

Gluten Free Gem is an independent, family run bakery located in Portland’s Rose Quarter. Owners Anne and Mike Miller started baking gluten free at CCP Gluten Free Bakeshop in 2006 when their daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. By April of 2011, the bakery had outgrown its SW Corbett location and was moved to its current location on N. Hancock St. With this move came a name change, to celebrate the original Gems: Anne and Mike’s daughters Greta and Emma Miller.

The bakery is now a GFCO Certified bakery, to eliminate any risk of cross-contamination. As part of this certification we do extensive ingredient research to ensure that everything we use, as well as our facility, is clean of gluten. In addition to our gluten awareness, we also train all our employees about the risk of cross-contamination from other allergens. We are continually educating ourselves on new research and information regarding Celiac Disease, gluten-intolerance, and gluten-free baking. We take the potential health risks of gluten contamination as seriously as the need for our pastries to taste delicious.

Over the last eight years, our understanding of eating and baking gluten-free has grown immensely, and so has our menu. We plan on continuing to develop new gluten-free products that help to change the perception of what gluten-free baking can be, all the while maintaining our 100% gluten-free facility, where everything is delicious and safe to eat.


Our bakery is a dedicated and certified GFCO facility, which eliminates any risk of cross-contamination.
