    I did my research prior to coming here, so I knew they had a gluten-free menu, but I quizzed the girl taking my order anyway on how they prepare the gluten-free dishes. I knew I wanted the pad thai because it's naturally gluten-free, but they can also sub in gluten-free pasta for many of their other dishes. I told the cashier I have a gluten and dairy allergy, and asked them to cook my noodles in fresh water, and put an allergy alert on my order. She was very friendly and said they do that with all of their allergy orders. She seemed knowledgeable and I was so happy to be able to have pad thai again! It's also fast, cheap, and easy - overall a good experience.

    This is my go-to place for a gluten-free meal. They have an extensive GF menu and very knowledgable staff. They even use different plates for the GF meals so they can be distinguished from the non-GF food. Very gluten-free friendly - I always feel safe and normal eating here.

    If I could give it 10 stars, I would. Best gluten-free bakery in Northern California hands down! They are also the only GF bakery (that I know of) that is completely dairy-free as well, which is so awesome. The owners are such nice people also, and they love what they do. Everything I've had at Pushkin's has exceeded my expectations, and the chocolate crinkle cookies are to die for. What I love about this bakery is that they not only have the typical cupcakes, cookies, sweet breads, etc. that most GF bakeries have, but they also try to get more creative with their daily menu and offer treats like smore's sandwiches and GF vegan ice cream in waffle cones (during summer). Such a great place!

    Good selection of gluten-free and vegan options. They have gluten-free bread for sandwiches (Rudi's). Wait staff is fairly knowledgeable with gluten-free and other allergy needs.

  • Tataki Sushi & Sake Bar

    Good sushi, decent knowledge of gluten-free. The waiter said I could basically get any of the maki rolls (tuna, cucumber, etc.), and then certain rolls without the sauces. I got the tuna roll and divisideroll (albacore/avocado/masago) because I wanted to play it pretty safe. The waiter said masago should be fine for GF, but I'm realizing now that it probably wasn't because I did some research and found out masago is usually thickened with wheat starch. He was friendly and accommodating though, which I appreciated because it was busy. I'd give it another shot, but overall nothing too exciting.

    You can't go wrong here - delicious food and 100% gluten-free! I'm also dairy-free, and the waitress said that I could basically get anything without the cheese. I had the yuca fries and the grilled chicken arepa without the cheese. Both were awesome, and the arepa was HUGE. Such a great place!
