Review of Café 21

802 5th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101

Overall Rating


Cafe 21 is a restaurant that I go to at least once a week. The staff has gotten to know us and are always so sweet and welcoming each time we come back. The menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and happier hour all have plenty of gluten free friendly choices! The mixed fries are one of my favorite dishes to order - they're mushroom, eggplant, and avocado, dipped in a rice flour mix and fried fresh. They come with really yummy dipping sauces (avocado pesto, chipotle aioli, and garlic aioli) on the side. When we eat there for dinner I also can't leave without ordering the gluten free chocolate flourless cake. The cake typically comes in a mini skillet (large enough for 2 people to share) drizzled in fruit compote topped with fresh berries and a side of ice cream in a copper pot. No matter what you eat at Cafe 21, you'll love it!

Celiac friendly?
