Dining Services operates an in-house bakery, "Not Just Desserts," that supplies freshly baked breads, pastries and desserts to all areas of our operation. We also operate a gluten-free bakery on campus which supplies baked goods to our dining operations. Gluten-free items are available for purchase by the UConn community.
In 2015 Dining Services opened the kitchen of the first-ever gluten-free bakery on a college/university campus! With this kitchen we are able to supply all residential dining units, cafes, grab & go's as well as University Catering, with fresh baked gluten free products. Learn more about gluten-friendly dining on campus.

ATTENTION: NUT ALLERGY WARNING
Products made at the UConn Bakery are made in an environment where nuts are used and handled. For that reason we cannot guarantee any products made at the UConn Bakery are nut free. Even if nuts are not on the list of ingredients there still may be a trace of nuts or nut oils in the product. If anyone is allergic to any type of nuts it would be advised to not eat any of the products from the UConn Bakery. This includes the Not Just Desserts line.
