    I like having this close to work since my grocery options in the downtown area are so limited. They have a great selection of gluten free grocery items which generally cost a bit more than some of our other local stores but they also have a lot of sales and coupons so if you watch for those you can get some good deals. They also carry locally made GF products like New Cascadia bread which is some of the best bread I've had. They have GF sandwiches in their deli (I think they use their own bread, it's really good bread) but beware if you are celiac or very sensitive they often use the same utensils and if you get a grilled Panini they use the same Panini press. The hot GF pizza slices are very tasty but they heat it up using the same paddle and brick oven they use to cook the regular pizza.

    Amazing baked goods! The salted caramel brownie is a favorite of most people in my family, including gluten eaters. You can find their baked goods around town and everything I've tried is great. Meals at the café are fab also, have enjoyed some quiche, biscuits and gravy (hard to believe they were gf and vegan!) and tomato, basil, 'mozzarella' sandwich and all have been wonderful. Friendly and helpful staff in a cute and clean shop.

    Check their website for up-to-date tap list, the friendly owner keeps a dedicated line for GF selection. Got the Brunehaut Blonde GF beer to go. Also saw a couple ciders on tap. Nice bar to drink at or get a growler to go. Friendly people with a great bar

    Great hot dog with best gluten free bun I've had. And perfectly crisp fries. Really good for a fast meal or take out.

    Amazing gluten free everything, fish'n'chips, chicken strips, sliders, chowder -- now the entire place is GF from the croutons on the Caesar salad to the beer battered fish. GF beers (several!) and desserts, too. Great happy hour specials. Great carrot cake. You can't go wrong. My gluten eating friends and family love everything also and don't miss the gluten.

    Amazing. The entire place is GF so no cross contamination, but nothing tasted GF, it all tasted like regular yummy baked goods! Friendly and helpful staff, knowledgable and informative owner. Very large portions on the sandwiches (none of the usual mini slices of bread) with giant slices of ham and regular sized buns. Had enough leftover sandwiches for dinner. Great cookies, rolls & cinnamon buns. Can't wait to go back!

    Cannon beach location - Definitely one of the better GF crusts and great sauce. Fast service, good price (less than other gf pizzas in town). Even good left over!

    The sauce was very good. It was very expensive considering the poor service and small amount of food. I paid extra for avocado and got three tiny squares. The rice was cold and the chicken was rubbery from the microwave. Maybe I was there on an off day, but I won't risk spending that much again. I'll buy the sauce at the store.

    Unbelievably happy to have Hawaiian grinds made with GF soy. GF beer as well. Have tried ribs, teriyaki chicken, pan fried Korean chicken all really well made. Large portions. Maybe we can all convince them to offer a better GF side than the green salad... It's perfectly functional but someday maybe GF macaroni salad?

  • Bellagio’s Pizza

    I've had delivery, never eaten there, and the pizza is really good. One of the best GF crusts I've had delivered. And loving that it now comes in two sizes. The husband and I can share and still have leftovers which are great reheated in the oven directly on the rack. Great online ordering system.

    Great price for yummy gf sandwiches. Knowledgable, friendly staff. Lots of gf options including tasty salads, soups, chili and gf cornbread. We always stop here if headed west out of Portland.

    Gluten free buns available. Great sandwiches, well cooked and innovative combinations of meats cheeses and sauces. Great cocktails as well

    If you are gluten free in Seattle and don't go here for breakfast you are crazy. Gluten free French toast, pancakes, toast, and it all tastes amazing. And there's a toppings bar with fruit and nuts etc. Sausage and potatoes also all yummy. It's a good thing I don't live nearby, I'd be broke and huge. Oh and the coffee is perfect and served in huge mugs

    GF buns, bread, pizza. Well explained gf menu and knowledgable staff. Hard cider available. Chicken was a bit over cooked, but hubby's French dip was great as was the applesauce. Will definitely be back, gotta try the pizza!

    175 E 2nd St., Cannon Beach, OR 97110

    Really tasty well made gluten free crepes. So good we went twice in three days! Some of the ingredients questionable, i.e. pre-shredded cheese, and because of that, I'd watch for cross contamination if very sensitive. There's not room really to sit unless its not at all busy, so be prepared to be outside or have somewhere to go. Perfect food for eating on a bench in good weather.

    Despite the fact it's a chain and seems spendy for the amount of food you get, we really enjoy it. Everything tastes fresh, is well prepared, service is great. We go with non-celiac friends and get all gluten free dishes to share and everyone likes them. Love the spicy chicken and Ginger chicken with broccoli.

    Aside from a few packaged GF pastries and packaged salads (which you have to ask about), I can't seem to think of many GF options. Even a lot of their soups have gluten when you wouldn't expect, so be sure to ask. The few things you can eat are always good.

    Very tasty, extensive GF menu. Very courteous and attentive to needs of GF diners. Not cheap but a great choice for a splurge.

    Wait for a table was long but worth it. The service was fine and didn't seem to take too long. Pizza was great and the real star was the hot from the oven GF brownie. Also great to be able to have GF beer with the pizza a lot of GF pizza places overlook that. Pizza seems very small for the high price, but the salad was huge.

    A MUST for anyone hungry for a GF beer and burger. Great selection. Also really great salsa to go with their tortilla chips.
