150 Must Visit Gluten-Free Restaurants & Bakeries for 2019

150 Must Visit Gluten-Free Restaurants & Bakeries for 2019

For the celiac and gluten sensitive traveler, venturing out to new places and cities can at times be intimidating, frustrating, and even upsetting if you’re unsure of the source of your next meal. It’s time to cast those fears aside in 2019.

There are restaurants and bakeries all across the U.S. that have dedicated their lives, and are pursuing their passions, to creating safe, delicious food for the gluten-free community.

After receiving votes for nearly 200 different gluten-free restaurants and bakeries across the U.S. in 2018, we’ve outlined your top picks and your favorite gluten-free spots below. 

Of special mention is 100% Gluten-Free Restaurant, Oceans & Earth, just outside of L.A. in Yorba Linda, CA. Oceans & Earth was voted the #1 Gluten-Free Restaurant by customers all across the U.S.. From Fish-N-Chips, flatbreads, and burgers, to cakes, pastries and doughnuts, you can enjoy some of the best American cuisine this country has to offer — 100% Gluten Free. Even better, is that they “have the largest aquaponic farm in California and grow their own produce for the restaurant. Organic & self sustainable. They make everything in house, sauces, dressings, breads desserts, buns.” You can read the full write-up of Oceans & Earth here.

Here’s what a few customers have to say about their experience at Oceans & Earth:

I have Celiac disease…I have never been so satisfied at any place I have eaten out at until I came to Oceans & Earth. The staff was absolutely amazing and had so much knowledge about the ingredients and what I was putting in my body. I absolutely appreciate restaurants like this and can’t wait to eat here again & again, worry free of being “glutened”!

This is the only certified gluten free upscale restaurant in North Orange County with an Owner/Chef that has a passion for growing/farming organically a majority of the food he serves, being a dedicated gluten free kitchen, creating and cooking his menu in a way that everyone, not just Celiac or gluten free, thinks is delicious, has a full bar, inside and patio seating, and live entertainment on the weekends and some week nights. It is the only restaurant near me that I can order anything on the entire menu! I also love that Chef Adam is always friendly and available to talk to and when he has time he visits with his guests.

    Fun list! I scored an 8, which, for someone who lives in Michigan and doesn’t get to travel much, I thought was pretty good. I’d put Mariposa bakery in San Francisco vastly much higher on the list — it is amazing!

      Thanks for sharing, Valerie! Sounds like you’re a traveler! I’ve heard wonderful things about Mariposa…all of the restaurants listed here received votes throughout 2018 for Best GF Restaurant/Bakery in the U.S. What we’ve listed here are the results of those customer votes.
