Here is the list of the best wheat and gluten free restaurants in Toronto.
This wheatless and meatless eatery boasts lunch counters scattered throughout The Path in addition to a licensed sit-down restaurant on Spadina. Menus vary by location and include a variety of quinoa and rice bowls, soups, burgers (without the bun) and desserts like waffles topped with ice cream.
Seasonal menus feature local produce in smoothies, soups, salads and grain bowls at this local chain. Gluten-free eaters will find ample selection, including the 5-Star box loaded with avocado, sweet potato, broccoli, napa cabbage slaw, quinoa, baby kale and a mix of nuts and seeds.
This mini-chain of vegetarian restaurants accommodates gluten allergies with a dedicated menu of wheat-less salads, rice bowls and 'unwraps' a.k.a a tortilla-less burrito bowl built on a bed of lettuce. You'll even find a few flourless desserts and at brunch, the pancakes are not off the table.
The kitchen at this Kensington Market brunch spot is completely gluten free. The menu offers soups (served with plant-based crackers), salads and buckwheat crepes made sweet with options like bananas and Nutella or brie and pecans. Gluten-free baked goods, such as brownies and cookies, are noteworthy too.
This King East kitchen caters to a health-conscious clientele with a menu of protein-packed power bowls and salads. Try the Zesty Mexican - it’s a plate packed with potato and squash mash, black kale, bell peppers, black beans, avocado, salsa and vegan sour cream served with raw mole tortilla crackers.
While not exclusively gluten-free, the menu at this Roncesvalles restaurant easily identifies the gluten-free offerings so diners know that chili, phish stix and po’boy tacos (to name just a few) are all safe bets. Most sandwiches and breakfast options can be customized with gluten-free bread too.
Organic, plant-based dishes like the open-faced chickpea melt, tostadas on corn and carrot tortillas, and pizzas on sprouted buckwheat and sunflower seed crusts are lunch menu favourites at Doug’s Marlee Avenue kitchen. The brunch menu is equally accommodating and the options are just as abundant.
