For people without serious food allergies and intolerances, it's difficult to understand the need for safe alternatives to certain products. At The Difference Baker, our main goal is to help people who suffer from food allergies and allow them to have a trusted spot they can come to and eat delicious food without sacrificing taste.

We want everyone to understand and realize the demand for more allergy-friendly businesses in our world! So tell us - what are you/your family allergic to?

Our Story

Our story started when our owner, Alyssa, discovered she was gluten-intolerant after years of trying to figure out why she was always so sick. Removing gluten and soy from her diet has been life-changing for Alyssa and her family and she wants others who have similar dietary restrictions to have a fun, safe place to go and enjoy delicious gluten-free treats! The Difference Baker was born out of faith, love and hope for a future for families suffering with gluten intolerance and Alyssa cannot WAIT to bring her creations to Loudoun County!
