Doesn’t get better than this for a celiac.
They now do HAPPY HOUR This place is very close to my house, and it's a great place to pick up muffins, cookies, cupcakes/mini cakes, and other breakfast options. The menu is amazing and all gluten free and delicious, definitely stop in some time! It’s my favorite restaurant and I’ve never had anything I didn’t like
This is my very favorite restaurant in Chicago, and maybe the entire world. I have never had any issues, as the entire place is gluten free with no outside food allowed. I’ve never had a bad meal here either. Seriously, if you need gluten free, this is the place.
What a wonderful place! Completely gf. Friendly staff, delicious food. Even my gluten-eating teenager enjoyed his lunch there!
I mean what more can you say about an entirely gluten free cafe....amazing. I bring all of my friends and family here and they love the food too.
This is my new favorite place! Even the owner has celiac so you know you are going to be safe eating here. The food is fabulous and you can do dairy free as well. And I loved my chai latte. I will definitely be coming back. No reaction to anything and I am super sensitive.
Dedicated GF kitchen with many options.
The food is alright, granted I can't eat much there. They premake the pancake batter with (I thin either coconut or almond milk... Can't remember) and I can't have that. Also they use a soy spray on just about everything which also eliminates most of the menu. Disappointing. But if I got a salad or other naturally gf options I'm sure it'd be fine. I was just hoping for specialty items.
Completely GF. Amazing experience. 10/10. Can’t wait to go back
100% gluten free restaurant- there are even signs in the door reminding you not to bring in gluten so they can keep the whole building clean and safe. The food was wonderful. My non celiac teenager even said the English muffin in his eggs Benedict was better than most of the “regular” (non GF) ones he has at other restaurants. They have a dedicated bakery at another location where you can buy products to take home.
AMAZING!!!! A full menu to choose from and all of the food we got was delicious. There is absolutely NO gluten in this restaurant!!
Perfect! Breakfast heaven. Beautiful, delicious, friendly, professional, affordable.
everything is 100% gluten free and delicious!
Their dishes are so tasty that all the non-celiac dining companions I’ve brought here have thought they were not sacrificing anything by going GF. Get the honey butter and cheddar chive biscuits. Simply amazing!
This restaurant is 100% safe. And sooo good—not just good for GF.
I had some items I absolutely couldn’t find elsewhere at this location. I had a beautiful lox eggs Benedict with asparagus. It was so amazing. Celiac friendly. No gluten in sight. I had a cucumber seltzer water that was so refreshing too. ❤️
What’s not to love with a gluten free cafe!! The waffles and bagels were amazing!
Great food and love having everything gluten free. Blueberry pancakes and avocado toast both delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try more.
So many wonderful options. I had the eggs Benedict, cinnamon roll and popover. Everything was safe but the bread itself was touch and difficult to chew. The cinnamon roll was better than most gf I have had, but not soft and fluffy like it needed to be. The English muffin and popover were tough as well. Maybe overturned dough or lack of polymer replacement for the gluten.
Love this place!!! Wish there was a location in a closer - or not so congested - neighborhood.
Try the popover! It’s the closest gf item I’ve ever had that’s closest to a croissant
Popovers are delicious! Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.
One of Chicago’s safest and best GF restaurants
Literally was able to have all of the breakfasts that I haven’t been able to eat in four years since discovering I couldn’t eat gluten or dairy and thought I would never have again! I have three different plates in front of me every time. Chocolate chip waffles, short rib and bagel with lox are my all time favorites, though everything I’ve tried there is AMAZING.
Epicly delicious, can't go wrong with thier brand menu. Yum!
Everything here is 100% gluten free and it’s delicious. I got the chocolate chip pancakes and they were the best gluten free pancakes I’ve ever had. If I had ordered them at a restaurant that wasn’t a dedicated gluten free facility, I would’ve been nervous about eating them because I would’ve been sure that they were serving me food that had gluten in it. They were that good. My mom got a panini and she said the bread didn’t even taste gluten free. It was a great experience.
On my list to visit again next time I’m in the Chicago area. Great gluten free restaurant.
Best place to eat for 100% GF, great food, great service.
Everything is GF. Great food! But they don’t open until 10am, even on weekdays.
Anamazing place to eat!! A must try!!!
Amazing food! The cheddar biscuit is the best thing I’ve eaten in a long time!! I wish I lived closer because I would be here all the time!
I wish I could give more stars. This place is wonderful. Totally get it. They are corn-free as well as gluten-free. Food was fantastic.
I love this place! I don’t live around here, but my family and I make a point to take the hike just for this wonderful restaurant. As a celiac, it’s amazing to be in an environment where you 100% know that you’re safe. The food is really good- lots of options outside of the baked goods & we love the decor in the place. Might wanna check the hours before you go though- sometimes we have to wait because we get there too early or it’s closed. But I highly recommend this to anyone who’s anywhere near Chicago!
This place is amazing! Definitely go there~ the whole place is GF. They have Vegan options too
This place is adorable, the staff is friendly, and our meal was delicious! As a celiac, it was such a treat to be able to order anything off the menu! We enjoyed a lovely brunch and hope to be back next time we are in town.
Truly wonderful business, staff, and food. As a celiac of 26 years, it's pretty amazing to find a place like this that consistently provides good gluten free food and increasing menu options. I love eating here! I've never gotten sick, and the people are always lovely. My non-GF boyfriend loves coming here as well! It's really a celiac's haven.
This place is amazing. Everything I have tried was wonderful. And they are a 100% dedicated gluten free kitchen. They even have signs banning outside food and drink because of possible cross contamination.
Everything was delicious; can't wait to visit Chicago again.
Spoke with the cafe this morning, they use a soy spray for all their baking pans so every item that's baked in the store is covered in soy. So many people who need gf also have other allergies there are so many options for baking spray why use a common allergen?
Comment from business owner Hello Rachel, After reading your recent review of the Wheat’s End Café on Find Me Gluten Free, we feel that is very important to clarify our use of pan spray for our baked items. You say “they use a soy spray for all their baking pans so every item that’s baked in the store is covered in soy” Firstly, the pan spray we use is not a “soy spray” – it is a non-GMO canola oil spray. It is Kirkland Signature brand from Costco - www.costco.com/Kirkland-Signature-Canola-Oil-Cooking-Spray-17-oz Secondly, there is no soy protein in the spray – it contains a very minor amount of non-GMO soy lecithin. Most soy sensitive individuals can tolerate soy lecithin. This article gives a fairly clear explanation of the differences - https://farrp.unl.edu/soy-lecithin As you know, the whole premise of our café is to cater to folks with gluten intolerances. We also go out of our way to avoid other allergens as we do realize that celiac sufferers often have multiple intolerances. The café staff member you spoke to was correctly informing you of the presence of an allergen, however minimal, and we regret that there has obviously been a miscommunication. For the few with an extreme soy intolerance, our bakery will, with advance notice, custom bake using a different spray for a small upcharge. Pan sprays without soy lecithin are quite expensive, but we are actually in the process of tracking down an economical alternative. Please feel free to contact our bakery if you would like to consider placing a custom order. Sincerely, The Wheat’s End Team
this place is amazing.
So nice to be able to order anything off the menu. Well went for brunch on a Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it! Donuts, cinnamon rolls, egg sandwiches, all sorts of yummy treats.
This is an amazing 100% dedicated gluten-free facility. I ate donuts! The staff was excellent, especially Taylor! The popover and gravy entree was perfection. Amazing, flawless hollandaise with the short ribs. Perfect way to end a trip to Chicago.
100% dedicated to gluten free. Food was delicious. Highly recommend!
The restaurant is 100% dedicated gluten free. There are signs that say not outside food so they can ensure that it stays 100% GF. I ordered the cheddar pretzel bread and the cinnamon roll and both were SO GOOD and I didn't get sick!!! My sister (not celiac or gluten free) ordered an omelette and said it was the best she's ever had. My mom just ordered some of the potatoes and they were amazing. If you are in Chicago this place is an absolute must visit restaurant!!!
Excellent brunch. Definitely celiac safe!
So good we had to go again before we left! The pancakes are unbelievable, I would eat them every day if I could and so would my kids! The fact that their gf and vegan is the icing on the cake. Wish you would come to Minneapolis!!!
Popover is amazing!!!
This place is fantastic. Stock up on their frozen baked goods!
I had a wonderful experience when I went to Wheat's End a few weeks ago when I was in Chicago. Everything was gluten free. The food and drinks were great. The atmosphere and the service was outstanding.
The amazing is overwhelming! Such a wonderfully delicious place!
