Gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut–free, soy-free, fish-free and crustacean-free is quite a mouthful – albeit a delicious one — at The Difference Baker in Ashburn, VA. Creating tasty treats that are also dietary restriction–friendly is the icing on the cake.

Did You Know? Donut Edition:​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Fried batter dishes were common among many cultures, but in America, what soon became known as a "doughnut" was being made as early as the 1700s! Early Dutch settlers called them olykoeks--'oil cakes'--and they became widespread by the 19th century in America before gaining even more popularity during World War 1!​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
(Of course, they wouldn't be gluten-, dairy-, egg-, and nut-free, but don't worry--You can always find plenty at The Difference Baker!)

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!
