    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: 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...

    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...

    Restaurant Review: Brasa

    Sweet Plantains

    I.love.Brasa. Creole/Caribbean/Central American fusion from delicious, whole ingredients, Brasa’s menu has only two menu items that are NOT gluten free.  Everything except TWO ITEMS is glorious, delicious food that I can indulge in and not have to worry, pick, feel deprived, or provoke my table mates to apologize to me (bah!  I have been...

    Restaurant Review: Café Latté

    by  • September 29, 2012 • Restaurant Reviews • 0 Comments

    Café Latté Cake

    Café Latté in St. Paul, an upscale cafeteria-style establishment with pizza and wine bar, has been a standby of ours for years!  It was a huge blow to my dessert psyche when I went GF and thought I’d never have turtle cake pass my lips again. Not to despair:  Deep Chocolate Flourless Torte is...
