If you're IBS-prone, be aware that they use a LOT of cheese, oil, and butter. Tasty food, yes, but brace for the consequences. For me, it's not worth it anymore, but you might tolerate it better, so give it a try. Just be careful selecting your ingredients.

Outstanding. I drive all the way from Manchester for this. Their berry pancakes and sausage-egg muffins are incredible. It's truly amazing how "normal" their meals taste. My non-celiac friends order off the gluten-free menu now -- it's that good!
225 Hebron Ave, Glastonbury, CT 06033
I definitely disagree with the other reviewer. I'm highly sensitive and have never had an issue. Their menu is outstanding and more than makes up for the high cost. This is a favorite of my celiac support group. They just give the cross-contamination disclaimer like every other restaurant to cover themselves. They're fine. Also, although it's not on the menu, every sandwich can be made on a gluten-free wrap.
50 Raymond Rd, West Hartford, CT 06107
Always a nightmarish mob scene. Gluten-free items are scattered all around. Go to Glastonbury or the other West Hartford location if you don't like tangoing with other customers in every aisle.
340 N. Main St., West Hartford, CT 06117
This is the "old" Whole Foods in town. They carry most of the same stuff as the West Hartford Center/Raymond Road location, with one huge benefit -- virtually no crowd!
1489 New Britain Ave., West Hartford, CT 06110
Not as wide a selection as Whole Foods, but good enough for staples. Their store-line gluten-free English muffins are pretty good. No prepared foods here, so you can't carry out and eat.
322 West Farms Mall Space F226, Farmington, CT 06032
Outstanding service, menu, and staff education. But do yourself a favor -- make a reservation! I've been given wait times of over two hours, even on weeknights. Be sure to call ahead for dinner.
15 Hazard Avenue, Enfield, CT 06082
Never had any issues here.
140 Glastonbury Blvd, Glastonbury, CT 06033
They have the most amazing soups! You can do a gluten-free soup/salad combo for under $10. Full list of gluten-free soups at http://www.zoup.com/GlutenFree.aspx Use ZIP Code search before going to find soups of the day, since menu rotates.
404 Middle Turnpike W, Manchester, CT 06040
Chocolates have a bitter taste due to overuse of agave syrup. Cross-contamination issues for people with nut allergies. Overpriced, even by organic standards. Still, it has a dedicated following, so give it a shot.
1450 Highland Ave, Needham, MA 02492
I was pretty disappointed. Cupcake bar only offers a vegan chocolate gluten-free cupcake with dairy-free buttercreme. Neither taste very good. Served with a wooden fork, which makes the cupcake seem even drier. The pre-made gluten-free cupcakes are dried out from sitting in display case. On a positive note, the (miserable) employee demonstrated excellent cross-contamination training. Cute concept, but it just doesn't taste good enough for a second trip.
194 Buckland Hills Drive, Manchester CT 06040
Decent enough. Gluten-free options are mostly salads and steaks. Pricier than necessary. An okay option.
2333 Main St, Glastonbury, CT 06033
A personal favorite! Order off the "fussy dieters" menu and/or request cornstarch soy sauce. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Popular with local celiac community. Small menu (four main choices), but worth a visit.
841 Main St, Manchester, CT 06040
A hidden gem in Downtown. Work with staff and you'll be all set. Try the Thai iced tea!
117 W Rd, Ellington, CT 06029
So good! Fantastic coupons on website as well. $2 discount with student ID. All toppings except meatballs are gluten-free.
81 East St, Vernon, CT 06066
Not a dedicated facility, but they specialize in gluten-free. Tons of baked goods, great cafe, maybe even better than Whole Foods for shopping selection. If you ask, they'll make it or order it.
697 Main St, Manchester, CT 06040
Awesome staff! They're really easy to work with and are very good about reading labels and making suggestions. Ask them when you first go in for gluten-free suggestions and they'll give you a list.
485 Hartford Rd, Manchester, CT 06040
Very good service and diner/homestyle food. Explain needs and they're happy to accommodate. Request clean grill space for omelettes.
140 Glastonbury Blvd, Glastonbury, CT 06033
Cross-contamination is really hard to avoid here.
435 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon Rockville, CT 06066
An absolute treat, not to be missed. Legendary authentic New York deli, with a long gluten-free menu and probably the best cooking/prep practices I've found outside dedicated facilities. Their pastrami on "rye" will make you forget you ever missed gluten-containing foods.
170 Hale Road, Manchester, CT 06040
Great selection, like every other Outback, and very knowledgeable staff.
3025 Main Street, Glastonbury, CT 06033
Service here isn't always the best and the steak is invariably charred. Vernon location is better.
55 Welles Street, Glastonbury, CT 06033
Much better store than the two in West Hartford. However, do NOT order the gluten-free pizza -- staff openly tell you there's lots of cross-contamination.
360 Buckland Hills Drive, Manchester, CT 06040
They sometimes don't have the most recent gluten-free menu printed, so get it off your phone if necessary. Most wait-staff bring you a to-go bag of gluten-free fries before you leave, which is great.
948 Main St, Willimantic, CT 06226
On one hand, the food is good and it's pretty much the only option in Willimantic. On the other hand...$10 for a tiny sandwich?! Their $2.50 surcharge for gluten-free bread is way above what anyone else charges. But again, if you're in the area, this is it. At least it's a tasty rip-off.
296 S Main St, Colchester, CT 06415
Perfectly average frozen crust pizza.
54 Hazard Ave., Enfield, CT 06082
Never had any issues at this location. Not as good as Vernon but better than Glastonbury. I always go here when in town.
71 Main St, Hebron, CT 06248
Really bad service and all they offer is 10" frozen crust that doesn't taste very good.
195 W Thames St, Norwich, CT 06360
Hands down my favorite gluten-free pizza after Jules Thin Crust outside Philadelphia. Well worth a side trip. They also do amazing gluten-free calzones and other options! I'm in love with them.
295 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon, CT 06066
Very educated staff. Decent menu size. Service is always good. Regional chain, for those of you passing through on I-84 who might not be familiar. Burgers, steak, chicken, seafood, etc. Really good gluten-free buns!
150 Trumbull St, Hartford, CT 06103
Best gluten-free menu in the state. Reservations are a must, but you can sometimes get a table short-notice, so always try.
