    Any crepe can be made with their gluten-free buckwheat batter. I had a savory crepe and a sweet one, and the crepe batter worked well with both. If you're wondering if you really got the gluten-free one, you can check the color -- it's noticeably darker (and thinner) than the regular version.Not sure whether they have a dedicated pan for GF crepes.

    I went here with a group of friend with widely varying dietary needs -- including a vegan and a person on the paleo diet -- and they were able to feed all of us reasonably well. I had the veggie burger on a gluten-free bun, which was okay. My friends seemed very happy with their food.They have GF buns for their burgers and GF dough for the flatbreads, which is nice. None of the deep-fried foods are on the GF menu, presumably because they don't have a dedicated fryer.Sit on the patio if it's a nice day -- it's got a lovely view of Boston across the water.

    Update: driving by recently, it looks like this location is closed. If you find yourself in Coolidge Corner looking for GF food, I recommend Paris Creperie!

    Their gluten-free buckwheat crepe is almost identical in taste and texture to a regular crepe -- so tasty!

    A bit pricey for fast food, but very tasty! Anything that's not made with a flour tortilla is GF, including their house-made tortilla chips. They do warm their corn tortillas on the same warmer as the wheat ones, but if you ask they'll use a separate warmer.

    Mediterranean food (falafel, shawarma, kafta, and so on), so lots of GF options. Both the white and brown rice are safe (no little noodles!), as are both of the available toppings (okra sauce or beans). Great place to get a cheap, quick, safe lunch!

    Excellent upscale vegan bistro with a dedicated gluten-free menu. Perfect for a special night out! I particularly like the grilled romaine heart salad and death-by-chocolate cake.

    They have a "gluten-sensitive" menu and have always been very responsive to diet/allergy concerns on my visits.

    Tasty Mediterranean food! The falafel plate is reliably GF, and you can also assemble a GF-meal from their numerous veggie dishes ("vegetarian three choices" and "vegetarian five choices"). Fries are also safe, as they are the only thing fried in that oil. Stay away from the rice, though, as it has wheat noodles in it. Also, sometimes the greek salad is contaminated with a small amount of tabouleh, unfortunately.

    Extremely tasty falafel! Everything in the restaurant is GF -- except the pita bread, of course. This is also a great place to get fries that are 100% safe (i.e., have not been fried in the same oil that is used for breaded food).

    This is one of my go-to places for a tasty GF meal. Their GF crust is very good -- in fact, my boyfriend thought it was tastier than their regular crust! They also have GF desserts, although I don't think they list them on the menu. Very busy on weekend evenings though -- they don't take reservations, but you can call ahead to put your name on the list.
