• Dessert Review: Groundswell Coffee

    Gluten free cupcake from Groundswell Coffee at Hamline and Thomas, St. Paul. Light and delicious.

    After two people recommended it in the last week, I picked up a GF cupcake from Groundswell Coffee on Hamline and Thomas in St. Paul’s Midway area tonight.  Swanky!  An industrial feel, this place looks like it serves great coffee.  I have sadly sworn off coffee, as it has decided it is my new...

    Seared Walleye at Phil's Tara Hideaway

    We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Phil’s Tara Hideaway in Stillwater today.  This unique log building was built in 1932 and on the historic register since 2007.  It wasn’t, I must say, a place where I would have expected to find so much Greek food on the menu!  🙂 I had seared walleye and...

    Copper River salmon entree at Rudy's Red Eye Grill (review on Twin Cities Gluten Free)

    Rudy’s Red Eye Grill is located in the Best Western Plus White Bear Lake Country Inn, White Bear Lake, MN.  I believe there is a second location south of the Cities.  I have had the privilege of breakfasting there several times with the White Bear Lake Rotary Club, and a few weeks ago, Bryce...

    Cold Stone Creamery review on Twin Cities Gluten Free

    (Kelli’s note:  Please help me in welcoming my husband Bryce aboard as an author!  Even though he doesn’t eat exclusively GF himself, he’s got a pretty good idea of the routine and eats a good amount of GF food himself by virtue of connection.  Now that he’s on board as an author you can...

    Original Pancake House GF Crepes

    Sometimes when we have the day off work we will go to Original Pancake House by Southdale.  The Edina franchisee also has a location in Eden Prairie, and there are also locations in Maple Grove and Plymouth – and throughout the nation, though I’m just reviewing Edina here.  I do not see any mention...

    Restaurant Review: Bryant-Lake Bowl

    by  • January 18, 2013 • 0 Comments

    Last Sunday Bryce, my sister and brother-in-law and of course I all went to Bryant-Lake Bowl in Uptown Minneapolis for lunch and bowling! Their GF menu is impressive! I even had an adult beverage, a Crispin cider.  For a long time I had sworn off alcohol altogether, since I always got a headache from...

    Cravings Melt gluten free sandwich

    One of my fave fave fave fave places to eat is Café Cravings in White Bear Lake.  They have such  an extensive menu of gluten free choices – that’s really appealing to me.  And the food is fantastic! Last time I went I had the Cravings Melt – turkey, provolone, cranberries – on the...

    Restaurant Review: Good Earth

    Turtle Bar

    It’s been a while since I went to Good Earth (in Roseville, second location in Edina), even though I love it there. You see, before I went off gluten, I couldn’t digest lots of fruits and veg, including spinach, broccoli, apples, basil (ok, any dark leafy green), oranges, and tons more.  And since pretty...

    Jimmy John's Unwich

    I thought I was done with Jimmy John’s as of January 5, 2012. Luckily, for those days when I get stuck out (away from my lunch), or have to run out of a workshop where they offered a pasta bar, or simply forget my lunch at home – turns out I still have an...

    Restaurant Review: Grandview Grill

    GF Old-fashioned pancake

    Breakfasts out are a big fave of mine because every restaurant serves eggs, hash browns, and breakfast meats that are naturally GF.  If it’s an option with the group we’re going out with, I try to suggest breakfast often.  Minimal fuss for all involved! And among my fave breakfast places is Grandview Grill on...
