I’m officially obsessed with this place! Protein Bar offers lots of YUMMY gluten free, vegetarian options with tons of protein. Breakfast and lunch have been great. It’s my dream come true! Looking forward to being a frequent customer.

I’ve come here for lunch half a dozen times and had no issues. Just make sure to tell them you have celiac disease and are very allergic to gluten. All of their bread ingredients are at the end of the line so there is reduced chance of cross contamination.

The food all tastes great. Plenty of gluten free options.

Notes


"All of our salads, almost all of our drinks (the ones that do not contain our house-made cocoa malt powder), and bowls are gluten-free. If gluten-free catering is what you are looking for, we can help with large, family-style bowls of our best gluten-free menu items.

We hate doing this since they’re some of our favorite items, but our Protein Bar-ritos cannot be made gluten-free as our wraps are made with whole wheat. From our breakfast menu, avoid our Oatmeal Bowls, as well as breakfast bar-ritos."

Good salads and bowls! My wife and I had lunch here. She is GF and I eat vegan. We both had salads we loved and I had a vegan chili bowl. My wife’s GF Caesar can with Parmesan “croutons”.

I eat at Protein Bar everyday for lunch and frequently breakfast as well. It is a great place for a healthy-conscious person to eat. A lot of their menu is quinoa or salad based. They also offer raw juices and don't serve any pop! Your body will thank you for eating at Protein Bar.

This place is great!! They have wraps, salads, and bowls, and a lot of them feature quinoa. A lot of items, including all of the quinoa bowls, are naturally gluten-free. Their menu features a little GF icon next to any items that are gluten-free. Plenty of vegan options are also available and indicated on their menu with a little V icon. Complete nutrition information is listed on their menu as well. Highly recommended!

Great spot for breakfast or lunch. Almost everything is gluten free including their granola. I got one of their protein smoothies and it was very good. They also do egg bowls and salads. Do not get the eggs in a wrap. The tortilla is not gluten free.

Awesome and filling lunch! I had the Spinach & Pesto bowl with cauliflower rice. They said they changed gloves and seemed well-informed about allergies.
