The coffee shop in here was able to make me a gf iced vanilla oatmilk latte. They verified the vanilla syrup said gluten free and they use oatly oatmilk. Since I got iced, everything was made in my cup so to not be contaminated with anything. Wonderful treat for me! Also the store has many gluten free products and selection.

Tried the "Schmoo cake" sounds great just ok, whipped cream is the best part. Cake doesn't look appetizing (although it's probably more healthy this way) and isn't tasty either. Wish they would put all gf food together, it's time consuming to hunt for gf gems here. Definitely try the cup4cup flour if you're a baker. I can't use anything else now.

This place is like the gluten-free Mecca of the Northwest Suburbs. Really large and nicely stocked Whole Foods location. If you're looking for something specific that's GF, they'll probably have it. Bread, pizza, baked goods, flour mixes, snacks, drinks, beers, even a food and salad bar with plenty of options ... The list is practically endless. Staff is generally very friendly and helpful.

Good for GF groceries. Would be nice if they specified whether their prepared foods and salad bar are GF but they don’t.

The food bar is no longer safe from risk of cross-contamination. The ingredient lists are not always correct. I don’t shop here anymore because the prices for gluten-free staples are so high. I do better on Vitacost.com for staples. I’m fortunate to have a Natural Grocers nearby for fresh food options in the winter when the farmers markets are closed.

Good hot food and nice salad bar. They don’t mark ingredients and highlight allergens. We eat here all the time.
