Great sandwich shop that is very close to the beach. Lots of gluten free options, actually most everything can be made with gf bread or wrap. The gf focaccia flat bread makes a great sandwich, with a New Grist beer. Only downside is that it is expensive for sandwiches, about $15 per person with drinks, but worth it for an easy Gf meal! My non gf family loved it, too.
Many dairy free options also, including smoothies and ice cream. Very knowledgable staff.
The pops were terrific - tasty, cold, not too sweet, lots of flavors to choose from - the wrap, not so much. The tortilla was cold and brittle so it broke up into increasingly smaller pieces as you handled it, making it really messy to eat. That might have been easy to overlook had it tasted really good, but the sun-dried tomatoes tasted off. The avocado and the fact it was gluten free were the only things that saved it.
What a fantastic surprise! My GF travel companion and I saw the sign for Wild Roots and noticed they offered organic foods. This normally has a chance for GF items, so we found them on Facebook and saw they mentioned gluten-free. We took a risk right before leaving our "weekend get-away" in the Pensacola Beach and tried them out, after talking with the head chef. She couldn't have been more accommodating. Everything they make is essentially gluten-free. The items that are not GF are pre-packaged things like wheat wraps, which are stored separately from the GF foods. She addressed their policy on avoiding cross contamination before I even asked....GOTTA LOVE THAT! She also revealed that she is one week into eating a stric gluten free diet herself for health purposes. We ate the soup of the day, which was a mushroom and cream of cashew. We also split a GF wrap called the Floridian with veganaisse and guacamole, and a GF flatbread, which was just their toasted version on thr wrapped, served open-faced. She explained that they toast the GF items on grill to the left and "regular" breaded items on the right. She also explained that they have color-coded knifes when cutting the breads, so as not to risk any gluten relatef issues. The fact that this place is across from the Hilton and Hampton Inn makes this small cafe a win for GF beach-goers! In the same building is their smoothie bar called Beach Pops, which has tons of GF options when wanting a cool, refreshing sweet drink at the beach. In May 2013, they will also be expanding to offer grocery items and dinner. They are currently open from 9am till 5pm. Enjoy!
