Gluten-Free in CT

Photo: Courtesy of Fairfield County WeeklyIf you or your child has a Gluten allergy, you know how difficult it can be to eat out in FC...or anywhere for that matter. Countless readers have requested gluten-free resources that don't taste like cardboard, and we are out there looking. In the meantime, Fairfield County Weekly has done an outstanding job of compiling a list of places serving "gluten-free grub around the state." I couldn't have done it better myself. 

Check out the gluten-free restaurant guide from Fairfield County Weekly.

Gluten-free news flash! Sugar & Olives in Norwalk is now serving gluten-free breakfast bars and cookies. 

We also recently found a great gluten-free baker in Bridgeport, SWEET, who will do custom cakes in addition to selling her goods at places like Amore Bakery in Fairfield, and Port Coffeehouse in Bridgeport

If you are looking for heartier fare. you can always find great food for restricted diets at Catch A Healthy Habit in Fairfield, Organic Market in Westport, The Stand in Norwalk, Health In A Hurry in Southport, and the new Green Gourmet To Go in Bridgeport.

If you know of a gluten-free restaurant that we have missed, post a comment below.

Izzi B's in Norwalk makes great gluten free cupcakes and cakes (they are also free of lots of other alergens) and they taste awesome! I first heard about them through your website. I was surprised when I didn't see them included.

I must say that a lot of you are mentioning that you have had the best GF pizza that comes on aluminum plate such as most of the pizza places around this area, aka Planet Pizza is one of them. The pizza is called Still Rider Pizza. It was the first mass distributor to produce pizza in this area and distribute to almost every pizza joint here. I must say I have had Celiac for over 17 years before all of the mass produce that is now on the shelves. Still Rider is aweful and if you think its good then you need to do some more research. The best GF Pizza around is at Fat Cat Pie in Norwalk hands down. It is full of taste and not super heavy. If you want real tasty GF pizza go to Fat Cat and do yourself a favor and do a little research on Sill Rider. You will notice at every place you get pizza it is all the same except the sauce and cheese.

Washington Prime in Sono has numerous GF items on their menu and the food is terrific.

The GF pizza crust at 850 Degrees in Ridgefield is superb. It is definitely not the same as the Still Rider GF pies I've had in the past.
