A Chat with Shambala Gluten Free Bakery & Vegetarian Bistro
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Shambala Bakery & Bistro is revolutionizing healthy eating by providing recipes with attention to allergen sensitivities. We make all our sauces and breads in house with vegan options. All items are soy and gluten free. Local produce relationships provide organic and non-GMO ingredients.
What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
One of the local favorites at the Bistro is our Shamburger, served on our fluffy and crusty Sunshine Bun, with all the fresh deluxe trimmings and with Tillamook cheddar. Our unique burger patty is made in-house and is so good you’ll never miss the wheat or the meat!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Shambala Bakery is an evolution of our farm-to-fork journey at Shambala Permaculture Farm on Camano Island. Providing the community nutritional produce and organic edible plants in our nursery farm stand, we introduced our gluten-free, ancient grain breads two years ago to an enthusiastic reception.
What do you love most about your job?
We are getting people out again that have food-allergy concerns that have kept them home bound. Our diversified menu has something for everyone, helping them enjoy friends and family all dining together again!
