    Restaurant Review: Finnish Bistro

    by  • November 11, 2013 • Restaurant Reviews • 0 Comments

    The incredible House "Salaatti" (Salad) at Finnish Bistro in Como neighborhood, St. Paul. Read the full review on TwinCitiesGlutenFree.com!

      My friend Barbara tipped me off to the GF menu at Finnish Bistro when they offered a Living Social deal about a week ago (be sure to read both sides for all the GF choices – it’s formatted kind of weird as two separate PDFs on their site).  I missed the deal, but...

    Daily special hash with smoked trout at The Buttered Tin in St. Paul. Read the full review on TwinCitiesGlutenFree.com

    On this dreary October evening, with our first *gasp* snow in the forecast, I am remembering a sunny Sunday morning about six weeks ago, lolling around on the sidewalk as we waited our turn at a quaint table at The Buttered Tin in downtown St. Paul.  Lovely wait and worth it! I had an...

    A beautiful spinach omelet from Shish. Read the full review on TwinCitiesGlutenFree.com

    Surprise!  Shish has breakfast!  And I can’t believe how many people seemed to know that – it was busy in there! I had a yummers spinach omelet with rosemary potatoes and fruit (pass on the toast, no GF sub available).  I chose this because it had pine nuts – am a total sucker for...

    Golden's Deli Review on Twin Cities Gluten Free

    After our glorious morning at the St. Paul Farmers’ Market, we were pretty hungry, and my friend Adam recommended we hit Golden’s Deli, right across the street.  What a wonderful Bohemian treat of a place!  The hodgepodge of tables and chairs, the funky variety of art, the variety of loose leaf teas, high industrial...

    Dessert Review: Cupcake

    by  • July 27, 2013 • Dessert Reviews • 0 Comments

    Moist, rich Michelle Obama cupcake at Cupcake on University Ave. in Minneapolis. Also enjoy macarons (all GF) and a GF Lemon Blueberry cupcake.

    Cupcake is a delightful little coffeeshop, bakery and light meal location on University Ave. in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis.  Bryce and I popped over there tonight to enjoy a cupcake each.  I ordered the Michelle Obama, a GF fudgey delight with a moist cake and almost too-rich-to-handle frosting.  That said, I’m not...

    Dessert Review: Groundswell Coffee

    by  • July 24, 2013 • Dessert Reviews • 1 Comment

    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...

    Restaurant Review: Bryant-Lake Bowl

    by  • January 18, 2013 • Restaurant Reviews • 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...
