Eat Gloriously Gluten-Free at These Seattle Restaurants

These accommodating eateries are changing the gluten-free game

View as Map

With restaurants embracing gluten-free cooking, it’s easier than ever for those with a gluten intolerance or Celiac disease to dine out in style. Seattle’s gluten-free world is expanding by the day, and old staples are increasingly keeping their menus fresh.

Good gluten-free dining can mean pizza, pasta, bread, sweets — everything that seems like it’d be verboten for those avoiding wheat, barley and rye. While most of the great eats on this list come from true gluten-free kitchens, some places that serve up great GF fare do not have dedicated tools. As such, this map denotes which kitchens should be entirely safe, and which are great at accommodating. Some recent additions include Lucky Santo, Celest Café and Wildflour Gluten-Free Bakery.

Tucked away just north of Seattle is a completely gluten-free, grain-free, GMO-free, organic bistro with romantic lighting and exposed-brick walls, the brainchild of Dr. Dusty DuBois, whose mission is to spread the gluten-free big-flavor gospel. The menu boasts stereotypically gluten-rich items sans-gluten, like fried chicken sandwiches, almond-battered fish and chips, and bread pudding, as well as plenty of naturally gluten-free dishes like herb-crusted lamb with cauliflower rice pilaf or pork spare ribs.

Another celiac-friendly destination, Celest Cafe is a fairly new addition to Seattle’s gluten-free dining scene. Aside from being a dedicated gluten-free facility, the café is also vegan and soy-free, making it a popular stop for those avoiding these common allergens.
