Gluten-free Restaurants in South Beach
You see many different dining options in South Beach, from international cuisine to vegan or low- fat options. However, there seems to be one particular option that you don’t hear very often: gluten-free. Be it because you are celiac or merely by personal preference, South Beach has some fantastic gluten-free restaurants so you don’t miss out on a delicious meal! But be cautious; there are a number of restaurants and diners that are growing their menus with “gluten-free” options, and even though they are gluten-free, they are prepared in the same environment as those that do contain the grain. This can prove dangerous for someone with a celiac disease through “cross-contamination”, the process by which you unwittingly ingest gluten.
One lovely place that is gluten-free is Start from Scratch Bakery, located in 9543 S Dixie Hwy. Start from Scratch is a 100% gluten-free vegan bakery, where you can find different options, from coffee and muffins, to delicious lunches such as Arugula spinach salad and hummus veggies baked falafel & pita.
